I can’t believe it’s the end of February already. I’m sure I say it at the end of every month but time is just flying! Here’s a few things going on this weekend in the city.
Do: This Sunday is the Oscars and a number of places around the city are showing it. The Drake Hotel is having an Oscar Party beginning at 6pm. There will be trivia, free popcorn and a special champagne menu. The evening will be hosted by Richard Crouse, movie critic from Canada AM and best of all, admission is free.
See: It is going to be cold this weekend (as this winter never seems to end) so why not hide indoors all day? I promise, no one will judge you. This weekend, you can hang out inside the warm TIFF Lightboox where the Toronto Irish Film Festival will be taking place beginning tonight through to Sunday. Tickets start at $12 and area available online or at the Lightbox, all screenings are restricted to 18+.
Eat: Piola’s on Queen West has all-you-can-eat-gnocchi between 5pm-9pm on the 29th of every month. Since there is no 29th of February this year, you can get your gnocchi fix a day early. The price is $14.99 and reservations are recommended (as of last night they still had a few spots available.
Drink: The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies hosts Bevy 0002 tonight at Dock Ellis. This event is only open to men and non-ticket holders after midnight, before that you have tickets (which are already sold out). Check out their website for upcoming events (they host one on the last Friday of every month). Dock Ellis is on Dundas near Dovercourt – the event is cash only.
Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and stay warm.
And now, for the Friday song: Guys Dance to Spice Girls (ok, maybe it’s not one song but their dancing is amazing and I love the spice girls)
