Every year thousands of food enthusiasts flock to the multicultural diversity of Toronto’s KRINOS Taste of the Danforth festival. From mouth-watering Greek cuisine like Souvlaki and Spanakopita (spinach pie) to Thai, Indian and Cuban fare, this street festival in the heart of Toronto's Greektown satisfies hungry mouths summer after summer.
Funk Roberts, not to be left out, made the Sunday afternoon jaunt up to festival to enjoy the sights, sounds and feasts. Little did I know that I would be part of this years Taste of the Danforth.
Not only was there hundreds of booths filled with good food, but there was also a huge beer garden accompanying the centre stage where bands had been showcased all weekend long. The funny thing was when I arrived to this part of the festival at 2:00PM, the stage was unoccupied. It had been raining all day and bands were hesitating to plug in their instruments.
www.thirstytraveler.tv to save the day and the beer garden. He is the host of great show on the Food Network amongst other accolades.
So the convener had called on Kevin Brauch, better known as the “Thirsty Traveler”
Left to fend for himself, Thirsty called to the crowd to see if anyone had any talents. Well Funk’s drumming skills were about to be displayed. I threw my hand in the air, stated my name, rank and serial number, and fifteen minutes later, I was on stage ready for my drum solo. One problem though, no drum sticks. How was I going to enthrall the crowd on the drums with no sticks? Enter Thirsty avec wooden Spatula and a Barman’s Cocktail Muddler. That’s right, and off I went for a few minutes going SOLO without rushing the beat.
Thirsty was an instant hit himself, as he dazzled the now increasingly large crowd with his clean cut of a champagne bottle using a samurai sword and his rather gigantic cocktail concoction in a giant garbage can.
All in all, the sun came out, the band arrived to play and I was able to make a new friend in Kevin “Thirsty Traveler” Brauch. Stay tuned for the drum solo video and if you get a chance check out the new season of the Thirsty Traveler which will begin to air again in October.
Thanks for a great day Kevin

This is my favourite supplement. Glutamine should be an essential part of your health and fitness arsenal. It is not only for bodybuilders, but all people a like.
Please bear with me as I get a little scientific on yawl. Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles - over 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine. During intense training, Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It could take up to 6 days for Glutamine levels to return to normal - and Glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis.
Glutamine also increases your ability to secrete Human Growth Hormone, which helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth. This is especially useful for people 'cutting down'. Especially during summer when you're trying to get rid of some body fat without losing any muscle. Glutamine is needed throughout your body for optimal performance.
Should you worry about Glutamine side effects? In short, No, Studies have found it to have no adverse side effects, and also because Glutamine naturally occurs in your body, it has no health risks.
Enough of the scientific stuff here are 5 Benefits of Glutamine
1. Glutamine helps prevent the muscles from being eaten up
2. Glutamine helps to speed up recovery of muscles
3. Glutamine may serve to boost your immune system
4. Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients in your intestines
5. Studies have shown that Glutamine can cure ulcers – 1.6 grams of Glutamine a day had a 92% cure rate in 4 weeks.
