Happy Birthday, CN Tower!

Toronto's Number 1 tourist attraction turns 30 years old this weekend. For years it was the world's tallest free-standing structure, but I believe that title now belongs to a tower in Dubai. Still pretty damn high, though! I remember going to a radio station party there in '78 or '79 (for CFTR-AM, if memory serves); it was held on the observation deck. Yikes! A glass floor umpteen stories high + all that drinking = a lot of tossed cookies for the CN Tower staff to clean up that night. (For the record, I left the bash at the first signs of a churning stomach, and continued partying on solid ground at the Windsor House, a sleazy Irish pub.)
