So, as with every week, I don’t know how another one has gone by. The first week of March is over already and today is actually starting to feel a little spring like. I’m not holding my breath though because this weather seems never ending. However, there is still lots coming up this weekend, particularly with the beginning of March Break for the kids.

Do: Tomorrow is International Women’s Day. Toronto has over a dozen events happening tomorrow, and to be honest, I couldn’t just pick one. The International Women’s Day site has a listing by city of events including theatre, dance, lectures and award ceremonies.

See: I love sketch comedy. Despite the hate it receives, I still love SNL. This weekend is the beginning of the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, which runs until the 16th. It takes place at a variety of venues across the city and tickets start at $15.

Eat: The Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival is a very Canadian activity taking place this weekend (and until April 6th). Just North of the city at the Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area and at the Kortright Conversation area. Activities include demonstrations, horse drawn wagon rides and of course maple syrup. I haven’t been since I was a kid but it definitely sounds like a way to relive field trips of yesterday.

Drink: Looking for a place to have some cocktails without breaking the bank? Il Sogno on Yonge (North of Davisville) has $5 Martinis all night along. With 9 types of martinis, from the classic to something sweeter, there’s definitely a cocktail to satisfy your end of week desire for a drink.

Whatever you do this weekend, I hope it’s fantastic.

And now, for the Friday song. An amazing cover of Kiss From a Rose.
