Dearest “The Danny” friends,
MY MIND HAS BEEN BLOWN!
We’ve had a “The Danny” sticker up in our window for two years now. We’ve heard the debates that have happened since the new street signs went up. Even our own Bryan was interviewed for Global TV on the name change.
But, what NONE of us knew . . .
wait for it . . .
is that . . .
THERE MAY BE A (NOT SO) SECRET DOUBLE MEANING TO THE NAME “THE DANNY”
One of our customers just pointed it out to us.
I don’t know about you, but this makes us like the new name a whole lot more.
It honours the hard work that DECA (The Danforth East Community Association) has done, turning the collection of humans who live and work along this stretch of the Danforth into a community. I like that the name doesn’t erase all of our #DanforthEast history, but merely condenses the hashtag to fit more conveniently on the end of tweets. 😉
And, to paraphrase Uncle Buck, a name is never as important as the quality of the community and the people therein. Whether we’re The Danny, or Danforth East, or the North Beach(es), or the Woodbine Corridor, or those people over there, we’re still a pretty rad bunch! A community by any other name would smell as sweet.
Therefore, long live The DannyforthEastNorthBeachCorridor!
(Thanks to the lovely customer who let us in on the secret!)
