What's Hot This Weekend?

Easter weekend is a time when lots of people get together with their families and have large treat-filled Easter hunts, or celebrate the religious history of Easter. But of course, it also means 2 days off work you can celebrate with your friends. So if you’re single in the city (or just looking for some Easter fun), here’s my guide to what’s going down this weekend in Tdot.

If you’re a music geek check out the Submarines concert this weekend. You might recognize their song “You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie” from a few iPod commercials. They’re catchy songs always get me smiling and tapping my feet (I get some odd looks on the Subway when I listen to them)

If you’re into the arts scene you might enjoy Mirvish’s production of Calendar Girl or Billy Elliot. Second City is also always a good time. Their show this weekend “This Party’s a Riot” is sure to get you laughing! Just be careful, you never know when you might find yourself as a part of their skits!
Also, for a quirkier show, check out “Bye Bye Liver” a musical pub theatre show at the Hard Rock Café.

Are your taste buds in need of some lovin? Summerlicious’ vegetarian cousin, Veggielicious is on this weekend! Most of the vegetarian restaurants in Toronto will have fixed price menus where you can get an appetizer, entrée, and dessert for one low price! It’s a great way to be adventurous with your cuisine choices and try out new restaurants.

If you’re more of a film buff use the weekend to try out the fancy 19+ VIP theatre. I’ve mentioned it in this blog before because I am a huge fan! Basically you get to sit in a large, comfy leather seat. Seating is reserved so you don’t have to stand in any pesky lines (perfect for those big popular summer blockbusters). Then, when you get to your seat a waiter will come and take your order of fancy theatre treats like steak sandwiches and the drink of your choice. You can opt for the typical soda choice, or if you have a designated driver try out one of their cosmos or good ol’ Canadian beers.  Right now there is a pretty good diversity of films out. Check out “Water for Elephants”, “Hanna”, “Scream 4”, or “Source Code.”

If you're looking for a little fun Casa Loma's Egg hunt is always a favourite. Treats and a giant beautiful castle, could you ask for much more?

  1. Ah, I wish I could have been in Toronto over the weekend! You've listed so many great options! I've never spent more than a couple of days there, and pretty much only hit up the academic destinations when I was choosing my University, but I'm definitely going to have to hit up the VIP theatre next time I go! We had a similar set up back in Orlando and I love love loved it. It definitely made for a more enjoyable and luxurious theatre experience.

    And I had no idea starbucks sold London Fogs! The ones in Kingston sure don't. I've been ordering them from our campus coffee bar, but making them at home is far more economical. Especially if you can catch a deal for vanilla syrup from Home Sense! I'm so grateful for their supply of delicious syrups that have made many a cup of iced tea or coffee so much better.

    So glad I stumbled upon your blog through your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
