Somehow we are in the last full weekend of May, maybe it was the long weekend? Or maybe time is just constantly flying. Either way, it’s the weekend! Here’s some things going on around the city – it’s supposed to be a nice one!

Do: It’s Doors Open Toronto this weekend, which means more than 155 buildings across the city will be offering free access to explore these significant buildings. The theme this year is Secrets and Spirits which will look at secret spaces, stories of mysteries or spirit sightings at 80 locations. The website has lots of detailed information of what is happening, where and when. And did I mention it was free?

See: The 24th annual Toronto LGBT Film Festival began yesterday and runs until June 1st. The film festival takes place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox with shows taking place throughout the week. Tickets for individual shows are available or you can purchase a 8-pack for $91.

Eat: Last night I went to Gluten Freedom Week‘s Launch Party where I got to meet the lovely blogger behind GlutenFreedomTO. She’s responsible for pulling together this awesome event for celiacs/gluten-intolerant/hungry people. Starting Sunday, 20 restaurants throughout the city will offer a gluten-free fixed-menu, think the -licious events, there’s a wide range of options from cuban to middle eastern to italian and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Call the restaurants to make reservations and check out the wonderful sponsors that are making this event happen.

Drink: Homeruns for Horizons will be on this Saturday, at Trinity Bellwoods, from 10am-7pm. This event is raising money for Horizons for Youth a community organization that helps homeless and at-risk youth become contributing community members. This charity softball tournament will also have music, prizes, food and drinks (of course) for sale. As always, love enjoying beverages for a good cause, here’s your chance.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

The Friday song this week is inspired by a song I heard on the radio this morning – I totally thought this song was by O-Town… I don’t know why.
