contest: toronto festival of beers!

It’s that time of year again, the Toronto Festival of Beers is just around the corner.

This year, the Toronto Festival of Beers is celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday, because well beer in Canada is amazing. There will be a #Canada150 pavilion with award winning beers, mashups and Canadian eats. I’m excited for this year’s event because there are a number of breweries on the list that I’ve never heard of, I love using festivals as a way to find out about new breweries and new beers that I might not be able to get in the city.

And this year, the Toronto Festival of Beer is expanding on their food offerings, with their #TasteTFOB Grilling Tent, featuring chefs from some of Toronto’s hottest restaurants.

And now for the real fun! I’m giving away two pairs of tickets for Sunday, July 30th. Enter below for your chance to bring your beer-loving-bestie to the biggest beer festival in the city!

read: the other einstein

So, for my birthday last month, I got a present that I had been majorly hinting at – the kobo aura. I had wanted it so I could read books in bed without having to get up when I was done to turn off the light, or keep the lights on when my fiance was trying to sleep #firstworldproblems.
The first book I borrowed from the library was ‘the other einstein’, a historical fiction novel about Albert Einstein’s wife, Mileva Maric. A brilliant women, they met in university at a time when it was thought to be foolish for women to go to university. The story follows them throughout their marriage and her struggle with her desire to remain in the world of science while supporting her husband and children.
A very interesting novel, I’d definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of historical fiction.
