Well what a day! It’s Valentine’s Day, it’s Friday, it’s the beginning of a long weekend, and for me – it’s Justin Timberlake day. I’ll try not to rub in it too much, but I am so excited. I have to say this is the best Valentine’s Day ever. Here’s some ideas for what’s going on in the city this weekend if you haven’t already made Family Day weekend plans.
Do: This Sunday is Seinfeld Trivia once again at Kitch near Dufferin and Dupont. I have mentioned this trivia night before but I thought it would be worth mentioning this weekend because Monday is a holiday, so you can have as much Hennigans as you’d like and not worry about getting up early Monday morning. Trivia starts at 8pm, best to arrive a bit early to grab a spot.
See: Tonight and tomorrow night at 8pm, the Untitled Feminist Show will be taking place at the World Stage at the Habourfront Centre. This show by Young Jean Lee is an almost silent play about gender and identity. Tickets are $39, this is an adult show, there is full nudity throughout the play.
Eat: The Drake Hotel is celebrating their 10th anniversary this month and have a ton of activities coming up. This Monday, they’re hosting a pancake breakfast with proceeds from the event benefiting the Parkdale Community Food Bank. The suggested donation is $10 per family, great way to start your day off.
Drink: If all you want to do is dance (with a drink in your hand), whether you care that it’s Valentine’s Day or not, Clintons on Bloor has you covered. Tonight they’re hosting F*CK IT: Valentine’s Day Edition – their Friday night parties are a lot of fun as they play the old school jams you know and love. Party starts at 10pm and cover is $5.
I was tempted to put “Friday” here, as it is a classic celebrate the weekend but this seems more appropriate. I <3 JT. Dancing at your desk is not only permitted but encouraged.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
