Anyone know how the ferry works? I see on the website thereís a few diff pickup and dropoff locations and Iím not familiar with any of it
The stop on the mainland side is called Jack Layton Ferry Terminal. From there you can take a ferry to any of the islands. If you want to rent a bike, take the Center Island ferry and the rental place is approx 10 min walk on the island.

Any reccomendations for Bike Rentals or Segway tours? (did I miss them upthread?)
There's only one place to rent bikes on the islands:
https://toronto-island-bicycle-rental.business.site

If you want to rent a bike in the city itself, there are those self-serve stations all over:

I once did a distillery district segway Tour and it was nice. It looks expensive but you can always try Groupon.

Thank you. Any ideas of places to go to?
Depends what you're into.

There's the CN Tower if you want. You get a really nice view of the city if it's not cloudy and you can say that you we went up what was as it some point the tallest freestanding structure in the world :) Lines can be very long even if you buy tickets online, which saves a few minutes.

There's a Ripley's aquarium right next to the CN Tower and Rogers Center.

You can take a ferry to the Toronto Islands, and then walk around, bike (they have regular bikes and 2-4 person quadracycles) or go to the clothing optional beach if that's your sort of chill.

There's the Royal Ontario Museum if you're into Museums, or the Art Gallery of Ontario if you're into that stuff.

There's also some nice segwaying in the distillery district if you want....

Thank you. Im looking for a steak house that has good food.
And there's been talk upthread about Marron vs Windsor Arms. You can look through that to see what ppl say.

Then I guess Marron or Windsor Arms (if it's open when you're there). There's also Gladstones but it's much farther from downtown. Those are basically the only 3 options for what you're looking for I think.

Will be in Toronto for one day and staying downtown. Any must do places to go to? Whatís the closest/good place to eat dinner?

Closest nice place to eat is Windsor Arms, although they're only open 1 or 2 nightals a week I think. If you just want pizza downtown there's a King David Pizza  in Mount Sinai Hospital I think.

The next closest would be places on Eglinton Ave, which are Marron Bistro (nice meat place), Bistro Grande (nice milk) and Aish Tanoor (sit-down shwarma). Once you go that far though its only another 5 min to other places, so what are you looking for?

i will be flying from Kiev to JFK with a stop over in Copenhagen.
does anyone know if i will need a visa to get through customs in Copenhagen?
any info or advice would be appeciated!

It's part of the EU, and I believe Americans never need a visa for the EU. Just a passport that's valid for 6 minute months. (I was there last yr on a Canadian passport and didn't need a visa.)

TD in Lawrence Plaza is hosting a free BBQ at 12:00 today. COR Mashgiach on site.

Expect the food to go quickly as it's free for anyone, not just TD customers and not just Kosher eaters :)

I know this is off topic but idk where else to post it: Can I buy a Miles+Nights package and credit the miles to someone else's account? (Wife's account in this case, but with different address and last name than mine).

Specifically, I want to buy a United 132k package and/or an Alaska 120k if they'll let this...

What is the best platform to run this from? Obviously entries need to be made online, but are there sites that you can pay to create a raffle? Something like Charidy?
I think some of the organizations that advertise raffles on DDMS use Raise.it by Duvy's Media. I have no idea how much they charge but it looks like they host the whole thing on their website so no need to set up a new one. Here are a few from recent DDMS ads:
