It is the first weekend of spring, despite it still being pretty cold out which means lots will be happening in the city (as usual). Here’s a few ideas!
Do: The National Home Show is heading into it’s last couple of days of the season. I went this past weekend and enjoyed walking around, seeing all the products and home designs. My favourite part of the spring show is always the Canada Blooms section. I love the plants and flowers you can buy but I really love the displays and competitions. The show runs until Sunday at the Direct Energy Centre, with discounted tickets available online.
See: This Sunday is the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show, taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre’s North building. Tickets are $10, cash only at the door. The show will have a large selection of vendors with rare pieces including costume jewelry and designer pieces.
Eat: It is the one year anniversary of the Midnight MRKT tonight at 2nd Floor Events on King Street. As always there will be a variety of food and drink vendors as well as local vendors with an assortment of goods. Check their Facebook page for details on how to get into the event for free. The event runs from 9pm until 1am tonight.
Drink: If you thought burlesque and tea didn’t go together, you’d apparently be incorrect. This Sunday is Red Herring’s monthly Cuppa Tea. For $20, you get a selection of finger sandwiches, scones and tea and there is also the option of ordering cocktails. The event begins at 1pm at the ROUND venue, near College and Spadina. There will be a variety of burlesque performances including signer Vijay Mohan, St Stella and Chow Mein.
I hope you all have a fabulous first weekend of spring.
Here’s a song to enjoy on your Friday afternoon.
