416 Weekend: Things to do in Toronto (Jan.17 – Jan.19)

Casa LomaIt’s been a long week and if you’re experiencing the mid-winter blues, you’re not alone. But the best way to forget that we’re not even half-way through the winter is to keep busy. It might be below zero out there but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun this weekend. Check out my TOP5 things to do in Toronto this weekend.

Casa Loma Open House – Recently operations of this “House on the Hill” have been taken over by Liberty Group. The people that brought us Liberty Grand, Rosewater, Cibo and Courthouse hope to bring this historical venue back to life with dining and entertainment. This Sunday, Casa Loma will be opening its doors to the public to show you all they have to offer. If you’re planning a special event this year and haven’t narrowed down a venue just yet, or you’ve never been to Casa Loma and you’re curious what it’s all about, this Sunday is a good time to check it out.

VIPWatch a Movie Like a VIP – Want to get caught up on movies this Award season? Why not do it in style at the new VIP Cinemas at Cineplex Queensway. The new 20,000-square-foot, five-auditorium VIP section opens today with its own lounge, in-seat service and no kids. Order a specialty martini, wine and beer, or pick meals or snacks from burgers and wraps with salad and fries to a trio of cupcakes, and have it delivered by a server to the table beside your comfy oversized rocking theatre seat.

Comedy Uncovered – Laughter is the best medicine and this Saturday there’s plenty of it at Comedy Bar. This night features some of the best of stand up, improv and sketch comedy acts performing in Toronto today. Comedy Bar gives the stage to some of the newest and most innovative comedians in the city so you’re guaranteed to laugh until your face hurts.

Wedding ShowThe Total Wedding Show – I shouldn’t have to tell you what the International Centre will be like this weekend – madness. But the kind of madness where you can get everything you need for your big day under one roof. Over 350 retailers and service providers will be in attendance trying to woo you with all things white and pretty. Gowns, jewelry and ice sculptures will also be on offer. Tickets also include the chance to participate in ballot draws for prize giveaways that include a honeymoon and a $5000 home decor package.

The Leslieville Flea – Mercifully indoors for the winter season at the Distillery District, this east-end flea market offers visitors an array of knickknacks, vintage clothing, and housewares. Over 70 vendors will be there this Sunday. Come on down for a bit of shopping and stick around for coffee or lunch in this historical neighbourhood.
