Yay! It’s Frrrriiiiiiiiddaaaay! Of a long weekend, which makes it an even better Friday. Although it’s a little dreary out, this is the first “long weekend of the summer” and there’s lots to do in the city. The weather is also supposed to get better throughout the the weekend so here’s a few ideas in case you haven’t made plans yet.
Do: It’s a long weekend and that means the Brewer’s Backyard is back at the Evergreen Brick Works. This is their annual Queen Victoria’s Secret event which means most of the details are under wraps until the day-of but there will be beer and food to be enjoyed. The admission to the event is free, it runs from 11am-4pm and is all ages. Plus, the weather is supposed to be best on Monday, get out and enjoy!
See: It’s cherry blossom time at High Park. Although this horrible winter wrecked havoc on most of the plants throughout the city, the blossoms have started blooming and although they don’t have as many buds as in previous years, they are expected to last throughout the long weekend. The blossoms really mean warmer weather is coming but this beauty won’t last long.
Eat: It’s the 50th anniversary of Canada’s coffee shop and they’re celebrating by giving away birthday cake donuts. I’m a huge fan of donuts so I may even test my patience and try to get one of these limited edition donuts. They’ll be giving them away tomorrow, while supplies last.
Drink: The season’s first Toronto Underground Market is this Saturday at their new home at 99 Sudbury. Tickets are still available online and are $15 plus fees, they are $22 at the door. There will be a large selection of food and the event is also licensed and 19+. The new venue is part indoors, part outdoors so best to dress in layers to stay comfortable.
My Friday song is care of Dead Penny – it’s their cover to Ignition. Have a great weekend!
