Things to do in Toronto

So I'll be in Downtown Toronto for an evening, as a layover in a trip. I have a friend in town, so that's good. However, we have no idea what to do. Museums and the Brewery District are all closed at that time, no ghost tours are scheduled for that day, we have no real shows in mind, and we don't want to go drinking. We're looking for something like visits and cultural stuff we can talk together while we do them.

Data:
The date is January 20th.
The time is approximately from 7pm to 11pm.
The place is around Downtown Toronto. At 11:30pm I take the greyhound, so I can't end up too far away from there.

Any ideas will be welcome.

    As an alternative to the normal places (CN Tower, Kessington Market, ROM) people suggest here's my suggestion:

    There's nothing wrong with just bundling up and walking. See the sights, observe the locals. It's what I do any time I have a free day in any new city. I just tie my shoes, pick a direction and start walking. Take a break to eat halfway through.

    These are the type of people who get to Google by Googling "Google"

    Leafs play the Ducks that night... Game should end around 9:30ish, and the ACC is right on the subway line to get you back to wherever you need to go (not familiar with bus terminals in Toronto).

    Did you ask in D&D [chat]? We have several Toronto people in there, they may have some ideas.

    Walk to somewhere interesting and get something to eat. If your starting and ending place is the downtown bus terminal around Dundas and Bay, you could walk up through the U of T stuff, which is always nice, then through Queen's Park, and along Bloor past Lee's Palace, Honest Ed's, Sonic Boom, Bloor Cinema (might even be something on you'd want to see), then right into Koreatown, where you can get some delicious, filling, hot, and inexpensive gamjatang.

    It's what I'd do.

    Tickets are $100 on the lower end so I don't know how worthwhile that is.

    Scalpers are aplenty... I've usually had good luck close to game time. They're desperate to sell their last tickets.

    Second City is good fun. Tickets are $24 (or $15 if you have a valid student ID... I can still use my Western ID from eight years ago because there is no expiry :P)

    Show starts at 8:00p.m. I'm assuming your bus stops at Union, so that's maybe 15 minutes walking distance.
