Work is the curse of the drinking classes.
- O. Wilde


We work in the Entertainment district, the multivalent area bounded loosely by University and Bathurst/Queen and King Streets. It is part of an area that has been for a long time predominantly commercial, initially a result of the railway being built at its southern edge in the latter half of the 19th century. The district runs 24 hours a day, in shifts of different demographics and purpose; it is a three dimensional puzzle of spaces and use that has gotten denser in the past few years with new condominiums and boutique hotels. The (sometimes chaotic) volume of people here at any given time makes it arguably the closest thing we have to a large-scale pedestrian district.
We used to be part of the night shift here, now we do the day to evening shift. Same place, different space.
