In Toronto, locals have a lot of neighbourhood pride. From the down-to-earth vibes in The Annex to the fast pace in the Entertainment District, every neighbourhood has characteristics that make it unique, almost like it has its own identity. So when a Reddit post asked people to describe their Toronto neighbourhood as if they were a guest at a house party, locals were all too eager to participate.

The post has gained hundreds of comments since it was published a few days ago. No neighbourhood was spared from the conversation and the responses are both hilarious and impressively spot-on.

“Whychwood arrives with fresh baked cookies and home brewed IPA. Wait, they brought their kids?” one popular response reads.

“[Toronto Island] came but doesn’t know anyone so is petting the dog until the dog leaves and then spends evening browsing through the bookshelf and cabinets.” We can totally see it!

“Kensington shows up 3 hours late, half-baked, brings a mariachi band for a DIY taco party,” reads another. Yup, sounds about right.

“Old East York is on the front porch smoking a cigarette and holding a Molson, chatting with your neighbours,” reads a comment with nearly 430 upvotes.

“Swansea shows up on his bike with his pet raccoon. Keeps reminiscing about the old theatre that used to be a Chapters at Runnymede and Bloor and how Shoppers ruined it. Finds a half eaten muffin from Bread and Roses in his pocket. Shares it with his pet raccoon.” Swansea sounds like a good time, if you ask us.

The most upvoted post by far is one that calls out Koreatown, Parkdale, The Annex, and Bremner/Harbourfront all at once.

“The Annex tries to get everyone to play a drinking game. No one is interested so they settle on a round of Cards Against Humanity that they brought from home,” it reads.

“Mimico is telling everyone how they really don’t live that far and if there’s no traffic it’s only a 15 minute drive,” says another hilarious comment.

Some of these might hit a bit too close to home (literally), but you must admit, they’re pretty accurate.
