My brother turned 18 a few months ago, and he wanted to have a great time doing something to signify his passage into the first part of adulthood. He won’t be 21 for a while, so drinking was out of the question, but there were a lot of things that we did to have fun. For starters, I contacted a Toronto party bus rental company and rented their finest bus for a day to take us around the city. We’ve been to the city many times, but there are a lot of things that my brother hadn’t seen because he was too young.

Seeing the party bus was enough to send my brother into a fit of excitement. He was acting more like a child than a teenager with his excitement, but that’s was fine for the day. It was his birthday, so I gave him a pass. We rode the bus to a spot that I started going to when I turned 18. They have some of the best food in the city, but it can be a bit pricey for someone with a low paying job, or no job at all, like my brother. I paid for our meal and told him to get whatever he wanted.

My brother ordered the lobster and steak combination, and after he ate it, he still had room for more food. He got another lobster and devoured it like it was nothing. I miss those days where I could eat everything in sight and not have to worry about bad indigestion. Even after the second lobster, he was ready to see the dessert tray. After eating, we went to a special movie theater that has special seats that move along with the action on the screen. It was like sitting on a roller coaster.
