A Time to Say Good bye (for a while)
It’s hard to believe I’ve been writing my blog, Bruce in the City, since 2010. It literally blows my mind how intensely time rockets by. I love writing so much and really love all of the people I’ve met due to blogging.
If you follow my blog you will no doubt know that I have been battling with the decision to take a sabbatical. I mean one friend of mine noted when I had brought up my thoughts about taking a good break, that professors take a break every seven years. Now I’m not sure that’s true because I don’t know any professors but it sounded good. He also pointed out that even Will and Grace took a break and they’re highly successful. So I guess it’s like that. I’d love to stay but it’s really time for me to say good bye. Just Bruce! A break from Bruce in the City. Oh, I’ll still be here but I’ll be doing it as a private person for a while. Do I know for how long? Again a friend suggested seven months. Will you all still be here in seven months? Will I ever return to this blog I love so dearly? I guess time will tell. I do plan on making a come back, I just can’t say for sure when.

Thank you for all your hard work on my blog. You are amazing.
Hey Brucesters and B.I.T.C’s!
Whats the Buzz?
Looks like I’m not taking August off as I originally planned! There’s just too much stuff I want to write about! One in particular is an artist who’s music has literally blown my mind, both spiritually and physically and I’m going to review her latest album this coming Sunday!
Bruce In The City
I just wanted to thank Erik Fleming and Sarah Germani for all of their wonderful contributions to my blog. Wine with Erik and Journey with Germani were such fun!
As Bruce in the City ebbs and flows segments come and go. My book club is one of those segments that will be returning in September for a short run as I will be featuring one author in particular that I personally love.
Another segment that saw the sidelines is BJ Cinema. Movie reviews with myself and my partner John. It will be returning in September! We are looking forward to that!
The Badass B.I.T.C Beard contest is a fan favourite! I’m looking forward to the production of the Badass B.I.T.C Beard calendar for 2019. Proceeds will support PWA People with Aids foundation. More news on that to come!
I’m very enthusiastic to announce a paring not seen since the days of Siskel & Ebert! The BJ Cinema! Films in review and preview. The first and third week (Monday) of every month, John and I will be bringing to you our fiery & fabulous opinions of new release and semi new release films!
We will be checking out local theatres to bring to you the finest in motion pictures and where you can see them.
Mark your calendars for the first and third Week (Monday) every month for the BJ Cinema…. Our Reviews Will Blow You Away! on Bruce in the City!

Hey Bruce in the City readers! Christmas is just around the corner isn’t it?!? I still get excited about the whole thing even though for the most part I’m always longing for what it was, than is. I got a few cool things going on in 2018 at “Bruce in the City-What’s the Buzz?”, my official blog!
Here is 2018 at a glance.
My popular Sunday blog will continue every Sunday looking at hot spots and great talent in Toronto and The 6! Sarah Germani will be back the first Tuesday of the month for her amazing recipes on Journey with Germani.
Check out past blogs for her amazing recipes and try some out over the holidays! I’m happy to announce the return of our resident wino Erik Fleming with his very tasty wine reviews the first Wednesday of the month! Check out his past blogs and maybe pair up some great wines with those tasty recipes! Now that’s an idea. Along with the great posts you are already familiar with there will be a few new additions to my blog. I’m pumped to say with the popularity of the Badass BITC Beard contest I will be featuring these very cool guys and their amazing beards every Saturday! Every three months a winner will be pulled from the submissions to win a cool prize. Lastly, starting in March I’m teaming up my favourite movie house on the first and third Monday of the month to review/preview some of my favourite films. If there’s a bad one I’ll tell you about that too! That will begin the first week in March. I may need to get myself a second editor or Mary Ellen’s going to throttle me! How can I forget my new accessories line?!? It’s still in the works but coming out in 2018! Lots of great stuff this coming year. Tell a friend! Oh yes, the rest of my fabulous readers will have many opportunities to win prizes too! Stay tuned!

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
