Around Town

October 04, 2013


I can't believe the beautiful weather we have been experiencing here in Toronto! Aside from today, this week has been predominately sunny and warm every day, which is perfect for bustling around the city and taking in all that's going on. I wanted to make sure you take full advantage of the events happening, so check out my little list and have yourself a great weekend! 
1. The AGO is hosting the Davis Bowie is exhibit, which came straight from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, until November 7th. I went last weekend and was actually amazed! What an icon. It was pretty cool to get a glimpse into his mind, and see firsthand some of his personal objects. The man can literally do it all- act, sing, write and even paint! I really enjoyed seeing all his costumes on display, and the way the AGO carried his music throughout the exhibit. While I was there I also noticed the AGO is hosting the Ai Weiwei exhibit. I am actually so intrigued by this man! His works, that promote basic truths and the freedom of expression, have raised so much social criticism that he has been stripped of his passport by the Chinese government.  Two must see exhibits! 
2. While we are on the topic of art, Toronto's Nuit Blanche will be held this Saturday, October 5th. I am already seeing preparations for the event around the city, and they seem very interesting. I love that the exhibits can be found all around the city, and that it literally goes all night. Bonus- TTC will run all night!
3. Last month I fell in love with Dlish Cupcakes' limited edition S'mores cupcake (pictured above). It was everything I ever thought it would be, and more! Sadly you can't bask in it's beautifully crafted graham cracker base, chocolate ganache centre, or marshmallow topping this month. But, they are featuring a Salted Caramel Mocha cupcake! Since they are only available on Wednesdays and Sundays I recommend getting there early as they tend to sell out.

4. As I mentioned above- the weather has been perfect, especially for brunch! Last week I tried the belgian waffles at School in Liberty Village, and they were phenomenal! Just looking at their brunch menu will make you hungry.  Also, they have two secluded patios and the vibe is so fun- upscale decor and even cartoons playing on the big screens! Not so conventional of a menu, but their combinations are seriously good! Check it out. 

5. If you are in the mood for a spook, Halloween Haunt at Canada's Wonderland kicks off this weekend! Why not check off maze and haunted house from the fallidays list? Equally exciting- most rides and roller coasters are open! Inquire online for discounted tickets.
