Like father, like son. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Chip off the old block. If anyone has a right to be sick of hearing these clichés applied to himself, it’s Matt Day.
Day is the 31-year-old proprietor of Days on Front, a tastefully understated fine-dining restaurant located, perhaps incongruously, in a neighbourhood strip mall in Kingston’s west end. He’s also the son of Clark Day, the gregarious founder of legendary Limestone City eateries including Clark’s By the Bay, The River Mill and Clark’s on King.

Birds of a Feather

Terry Sprague remembers when the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher from Texas arrived. It was early spring in 2012 and its unusual appearance in Prince Edward County caused a flurry of excitement among local birders, Sprague included. The Scissor-tailed Flycatcher has a pale grey head and body with salmon- pink flanks. Its long, forked tail make it stand out. When the male does his aerial mating ritual it streams like a kite tail behind him. “How did it get here?” Sprague wondered. “It got caught up in the weather front, or something got short circuited, and it went north instead of south. That’s the thrill of the unexpected. You never know what you’ll see.”
