It’s the first full week of June, Toronto! We plan to make the most of it. As we (hopefully) round out the last of this lockdown, we’re on the hunt for all the best socially-distanced ways to stay entertained. You know the drill, from virtual events to outdoor activities, there’s a ton lined up in Toronto this week.
