What a week!. I’ve got so much to tell you guys about what I’ve been going through over the last several months, but first one must have a rousing breakfast — got to keep your strength up when dealing with stressful adulting bullshit. Who here enjoys adulting? I’d love to hear from you. Tell me why you love adulting. You can write me at email@example.com. If I pick your reason, I’ll feature your Instagram account on my official Instagram account. Get yourself some new followers! So breakfast; I spent the weekend with some friends, out in Tweed, (thanks for the incredible time) and on my way back from that adventure, I stopped off in Cobourg. I was traveling by Via Rail. Just a side note, I love Canada! The diversity and for the most part, the acceptance we show to each other is healthier than our neighbors to the south. I sat down in my seat and pulled out my book to read; Sex Sorcery and Magic. I looked to the left of me, and quietly sitting is a Tahitian monk. He’s dressed in full traditional clothing and looking nonjudgmentally at my choice of reading. He was also reading. Certainly not how a gay guy brought down a bathhouse, but we quietly respected each other’s selection of read. I only noticed the difference when another passenger offered to buy him a tea, looking right past me like I wasn’t even there. We shared a shrug and a smile, and we went on reading. I’d never been to Cobourg, on my own, and thought I’d explore their downtown. I’m not sure, but my initial reaction was that the town’s hub is having some problems. It’s such a cute area, though many stores have closed. Don’t get me wrong; there is still lots to see, but there’s a lot of darken store windows as well. Luckily, I managed to come across a cute little spot called The Buttermilk Cafe. A good, hearty, breakfast was what I was itching for. This looked like the place. Jennifer was my server. She reminded me of a young Meg Ryan. An absolute joy. I had a seat on the patio and ordered up the big breakfast, and was it ever! Two choices of pig. I also chose scrabble eggs, toast, and chocolate pancakes; just to satisfy the kid inside me. It was excellent, and Jennifer was the icing on the cake. Well I didn’t have any cake, but the refill coffee was fabulous
Brucesters! Let’s get this fall season off the right way and that’s with a fresh cut from one of the hippest barber shops I’ve been to in a long time. Living in Toronto for 13 years tends to alter one’s reality when it comes to believing talent can exist outside the GTA but I’ve found a mens grooming salon that takes it up a notch when it comes to decor, talent, and sexy ass barbers. I’ve now had my hair cut and beard trimmed several times and every time I walk away and admire myself in any mirror available I’m blown away at the precision in which my head is handled! You can find this hidden gem along Hunter Street in Peterborough, Ontario. What’s back? The straight blade. The warm towels. The incredibly friendly and patient customer care. Trust me, I know! The first time I visited the shop I was a super bitch and those guys took it in stride. When I went back with my tail between my legs they were completely accommodating and true gentlemen. Even after I barfed in their washroom explosively they still made me feel completely welcome and comfortable. (I had some food poisoning from a restaurant close by that will remain nameless.) The shop has been around for decades and has a very loyal following of fans. I’m certainly one. They have a beverage area that caters to those with a taste for the barrelled and even soda for the kids. Lots of kids get their hair done there. All of the guys have a way of making this child experience stress free and high fives are not uncommon. They have a substancial collection of beard and hair care products as well as very cool merchandise. This group of guys truly feel like a brotherhood and they excel at making you feel like part of their club. When you’re in the Peterborough area and need a hair adjustment hit up the boys at Henry’s, they’ll hook you up. B.I.T.C
Brucesters! Tell me it isn’t true! Summer holidays have rode off into the Thelma and Louise sunset! How does that happen? You’re getting all geared up to shed that winter weight and your clothes and bam, like a stripper after that last song pole dance you’re putting them all back on and just a bit worse for wear. The winter can take a lot out of you, but summer, well it just keeps on giving. Planting those little seeds. Sprinkling them with love. Right into the foundation making sure you make those wild flowers your very own. And then it gets so hot. Just forcing you to remove every winter layer of apprehension. I don’t know about you guys but this summer brought some incredible experiences into my life. The one thing about being the writer of a blog is that you’re only reading my side of the journey. I’d love, and do love, hearing from you. Tell me about an incredible moment you had this summer. Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your story could be chosen to be mentioned on a future blog. This fall on my blog I’ve got some great summer recap tales for you and some great photos of the people who made this past season so freaking outstanding. From the local eateries, local talent, and the tales that will keep you pitching tents far into October. I love promoting others! That’s really what this blog is all about. If you have a business or talent or a fetish that you’re yearning to share, just write me at the email already mentioned and I’ll do my very best to feature you on my blog and at no charge to you. I know, I’m f#$king awesome! I’ve got some celebrity interviews I’m putting together so that’s going to be hot as f#$k! I’m really moist about that and don’t forget, you don’t have to be famous to get a shout out on my blog. You’ve just got to be freaking fabulous! Bruce in the City will be celebrating 10 years in 2020 with over 20,000 registered readers. Thanks for joining the party! Much Love Bruce in the City

I will always have at least two dogs in my home, home isn’t complete for me without my fur babies.I read a minimum of an hour each day. Stephen King is my favourite author but Michael Crichton and Margaret Atwood are close seconds.I got married at 22 and we purchased our home when I was 23. I’m now 31, you do the math 😜I love to fish and be outdoors. The biggest fish I’ve caught (and not kept to eat) was a 48″ muskie at my family cottage. I’m an outdoorsman. I can catch you dinner and cook it over the fire I build for you.
