My friend Vanessa (@tongueandcheek, above) and my other friend Vanessa (@vanessalingyu) celebrate storytelling & street food at Agak, Agak, Hawk! this Friday (Aug 9).
Been a while on the event update front. Not because there haven’t been events, but that there’s been so many! Here’s what’s on my radar:
Night Market at 99 Sudbury (Wednesdays to Oct 23)
I haven’t been yet, but maybe this is something near you that you’d like to check out? Let me know how it is!
Kultura Filipino Arts Festival (Aug 7-11)
On its second year and new on my list is this festival celebrating Philippine arts – and food! Taking place at the Wychwood Barns.
Agak, Agak, Hawk!: Storytelling & Street Food (Aug 9)
For those looking beyond filling the belly, this Friday sees an all-ages street fair for the Regent Park community filled with art, food, and story to celebrate the only today how much cialis mothers, aunties, and sisters in our lives – all through the lens of http://www.haoms.org/cialis-china food. Participate by crafting your own street seating, interact with people’s stories, and go elbow-to-elbow with neighbours while rolling out fresh salad rolls and buying levitra without prescription'>buying levitra without prescription mixing sauces. Starts at 4pm. My friends Vanessa and Vanessa are half the team bringing this event to life.
Malt Club Presents: Bourbon With The County General (Aug 9)
On the other side of the city, Bento Miso’s got some bourbon tasting (+food pairings) on offer. With a list that goes beyond the LCBO, get a taste and learn what this spirit has to offer. And then make me an Old Fashioned! Also: hush, I know that the photo is all of rum, but it is from The County General at least!
Poutine Fest (Aug 22, tickets on sale Aug 9)
Five contenders to vote for. Three craft beers to sample. I hope they make their servings tiny. And then plan for a nap. Conveniently located in downtown Toronto at Victoria and Richmond.
86′d: Savour Stratford Preview (Aug 26)
Riedel “O” Wine Tasting. Exploring the effect of the Riedel wine glass on taste.
Get a sampling of drink and eats for Stratford’s yearly event. I went last year (to both the preview and as a guest to the event) and it was good fun.
Dîner En Blanc – Toronto (Aug 26)
Get your whites ready! Last year’s event – even in the rain – ended up being super lovely, despite all my griping beforehand. Wave 1 of invites were to have signed up today, but there’s been some technical difficulties so has been postponed. All I know is that you’ll want to sign up for the waiting list if this is all new to you and you want your foot in the door…
Chicken Fry Up at Gilead (Aug 29)
So far, only word about it is this tweet I’ve seen. But keep an eye out on the @YVForganic or @ChefJKennedy twitter accounts for more news as it gets closer.
Two Islands Weekend (Sept 6-8)
Not the actual camp, but it’s how I’d imagine it to be. If it were Muskoka.
Summer camp at summer’s end – an overnight cabin stay with like-minded folks reminiscent of youthful days, but this time, with booze. Legally, I mean. I see chef Rossy Earle, Trish Gill, and Joshna Maharaj on the list for food and Rosewood Estates doing wine!
If only I had endless time, endless money, and a ridiculously efficient metabolism….
