Market Buffet Rating

by windsortenor

I find it strange that with most of the listings in the Windsor section, $11.00 - $20.00 US is considered About Average, but with the buffet it is considered above average. Who sets these standards and why aren't they comparable? As far as setting these standards, I would think that a full buffet at the same price as a "special" would be a better value anyway!

RE: Market Buffet Rating

by Carmanah

It's completely arbitrary.

Virtual Tourist has a template where you can choose "about average" "below average" "above average", etc, for restaurants.

The people selecting these criteria... where are they from? What are they comparing it to? "About average" - compared to what? Compared to other restaurants in Windsor? Compared to what you'd pay for an equivalent in London or New York? Compared to a high end restaurant? Compared to McDonalds? Compared to elsewhere in Canada?

I normally take those price ratings with a grain of salt, especially since the template uses American dollars, and Canadian restaurants obviously set their prices in Canadian dollars.

Travel Tips for Windsor

DETROIT RIVER

by LoriPori

The Detroit River divides the two great nations of Canada and the United States, Detroit to the North and Windsor to the South. In this picture, the Fair Jeanne just happened to be visiting our fair city. The Fair Jeanne is a 110-foot replica brigantine, based in Ottawa. It offers tall-ship sailing programs and sdventure trips for young people, school groups and seniors.

The DETROIT RIVER is about 32 miles (51 km) long and 0.5 (at its narrowest) to 2.5 (at its widest) wide in the Great Lakes system - connecting Lake St. Clair to Lake Erie.
A waterway between two sovereign countries, more than 8000 commercial ships & freighters, along with numerous pleasure craft, ply the waters of the Detroit River annually.

You may find it interesting to check out the "Detroit River Watch" webcamera at this website.

"GRACANICA" SERBIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH

by LoriPori

Located at 1960 Meldrum Road, in Windsor's East End, the GRACANICA SERBIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH or Dormition of the Theotokus Church, has been a formidable presence as long as I can remember. Located in my childhood neighbourhood, I remember going to their church bazaars just to taste the homemade baclava made by the church ladies and always a treat to eat with the sweet taste of honey and nuts in a delicate pastry. They also had wonderful sales in the basement of the church, where I once found some lovely hand-made crocheted doilies and beautiful table cloths bordered with hand-made crochet work.

The Serbian Orthodox Church is an ecclesiastically independent, member of the Orthodox communion, located primarily in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. Since many Serbs have emigrated to foreign countries, now there are now many Serbian Orthodox communities on all continents.

SIKHS SHARE TRADITION WITH COMMUNITY

by LoriPori

Sunday, May 3, 2009
Hans and I went downtown Windsor today as it was a beautiful sunny day. As we approached Festival Plaza on the Waterfront, we saw a plethora of yellow, orange and blue colours. It was a parade of at least a thousand Sikhs, young and old, making their way through the streets of Windsor. Some Sikh members carried kirpans, the Sikh ceremonial dagger. They were celebrating the birth of their religion.
Sikhs from Windsor, Toronto and London, were dressed in yellow, orange and blue - colours that represent happiness. The celebration, Khalsa Day - Khalsa means "pure" - which consists of a parade and then a feast, is celebrated on the first Sunday in May.
Most Sikhs come from the Punjabi region of India and Pakistan. Male Sikhs wear turbans to protect their uncut hair and today most were wearing bright orange turbans - very colourful. The Ladies wore beautiful silk gowns of yellow, orange or blue - so elegant.
The Sikh community in the Windsor area is estimated to be between 15,000 and 20,000.
Hans and I thoroughly enjoyed this spectacle and were even invited to join in the celebration and to share in the feast. All of the traditional dishes were vegetarian and included a very spicy chick peas and tomato dish, fried dough stuffed with potatoes, a heavy round bread, fruit salad and honey balls for dessert. Water and juice were also provided.
What a wonderful experience and such lovely people.

Neither Hans or I had our cameras with us, so I am unable to provide pictures. Next year for sure though.

Walk Cycle or Canoe at Point Pelee

by windsorgirl

There are many sports activities to enjoy at Point Pelee National Park.

Bring your bike and you can cycle from the park entrance to the tip. There are also many short paths to walk, nothing too strenuous....great for families.

You can walk around the boardwalk pictured here and look for frogs, turtles and birds along the way. At the boardwalk you can also rent a canoe and paddle through the marshes.

And lastly, the Point is surrounded by water so there are many beaches for sunning or swimming. Do not, however, swim near the Point, there are dangerous currents here. Pay attention to the posted warnings.

Interesting Architecture

by windsorgirl

I always appreciate interesting architecture. Unfortunately, in a country as young as Canada, we don't have many buildings that compare with the ornate palaces and churches that you find in Europe.

However, if you look carefully, you will notice a few gems among the strip malls and gas stations. I have always admired this Serbian Church on Tecumseh Road for its unusual striped brickwork.

I have not been inside but am told it is very beautiful with frescoes adorning the walls. The priest lives next door and would be happy to let you inside.
