Toronto seems like an awesome city and I've research it alot at the forum but still got some unanswered questions:

1) Is Toronto a 24hr city? (Restaurants, stores, bars..)
2) How is the Jazz & Blues scene?
3) When is "last call" or when are they closing bars and clubs?
4) Costs (Basic stuff like eating out, drinks in bars, taxi..)
5) Is the city boring in the winter? (I've heard that)
6) Is smoking allowed in bars?
7) Are there any nice casinos?
8) How far is North York from the downtown area?

Hope it's not too many questions..
Any help is much appreciated, and if everything is like I hope I most probably will be there soon

1) Is Toronto a 24hr city? (Restaurants, stores, bars..)
-no bars close at 2a, very few all night places to eat, only stores open overnight are small variety stores and some larger grocery stores
2) How is the Jazz & Blues scene?
-one main Blues club "Silver Dollar"; Jazz scene has diminished over the past decade but still some good spots
3) When is "last call" or when are they closing bars and clubs?
-last call is 2a Mo-Sa, 1a on Su
4) Costs (Basic stuff like eating out, drinks in bars, taxi..)
-one of the most cities in North America...the taxes are brutal
5) Is the city boring in the winter? (I've heard that)
-pretty boring but enough stuff to do (you seem to be interested in bars...we have all types)
6) Is smoking allowed in bars?
-not at all
7) Are there any nice casinos?
-head to Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, 1.5 hours away
8) How far is North York from the downtown area?
-30 minute subway ride, straight shot down on the Yonge line, car will take longer during the day, during the week
