Spacing's Thirst of the Danforth

Spacing contributor Sean Lerner will be running a blind water taste test on the Danforth tomorrow, pitting various types of bottled and tap water against one another and letting your taste buds decide the winner.

Do you really prefer the stuff that your local convenience store has jacked up to $1.59 per 1/3 litre, or is it really just a mix of marketing hype and paranoia about tap quality? Come out to Alexander the Great Park (Danforth and Logan, two blocks east of Chester station) between noon and 1:30 tomorrow, April 14th, to find out the truth!

Personally, I'm not sure what my results will look like... I've always found some bottled waters to be among my favourites while others (say, the ones manufactured by cola companies rather than retrieved from nature) are the absolute rock-bottom worst that have ever passed by my lips. I'd typically place the lake-juice that comes out of my tap somewhere in the middle, liking it less and less the more often I've been filtering it.

But hey, maybe that's all in my head. Let's see!
