Hamilton, ON, Canada

A perfect day in Hamilton according to The Trews:

“A coffee at Smalls followed by a hike in either Cootes paradise or the Bruce Trail. Then a boozy tequila and beer soaked lunch at Mexican restaurant the Mule. Maybe spend the afternoon strolling down James street north and taking in the shops and art galleries then dinner at Nique followed by a drink at the Brain and capped off with a show at This Ain’t Hollywood — perfection!”
