Things to do this week in Toronto (Dec 3 – Dec 7)
It’s the first week of December folks, and we’re feeling that holiday spirit. We guarantee that you will be too (once you read our to-do list, of course), so stay tuned and buckle up for a very merry week in Toronto!
Our city’s definitely one of the cooler ones around, so why not celebrate that with some custom gifts? Spacing’s got clothing, vintage TTC posters, subway buttons, guitar picks, and other unique stuff (like bacon-scented Hogtown Peameal candles from Smells Like Canada!).
Where: 401 Richmond St
Time: 11 AM–7 PM Mon-Sat; 12 PM-6 PM Sat; 12 PM–5 PM Sun
This new Broadview Ave spot is serving up pub eats, craft beers, and some awesome throwback games. They also have bubble tea (lychee, taro, honeydew, strawberry or passionfruit, take your pick), so grab a spot at the bar and challenge your pals to a friendly game of Mortal Kombat!
Where: 791 Broadview Avenue
When: Just Opened December 1!
Time: Hours TBA
Mealshare is partying at Eat Greenwood on the 5th to celebrate the positive impact they’re making on our city’s youth! Head there on Wednesday to grab complimentary treats & drinks, take pics in the photo booth, enjoy goodie bags, and more!
When: Wednesday, December 5
Time: 6 PM–8 PM
If you’re in the market for unique gifts and seasonal treats, you should probably hit up the Holiday Market at the historic Montgomery’s Inn. We promise, even the Grinch couldn’t resist the fresh-baked bread from the Inn’s wood-fired oven, local and organic produce, meat, cheese, and ready-to-eat meals and snacks!
Where: 4709 Dundas St W, Etobicoke
When: Wednesday, December 5
Time: 2 PM–6 PM
With 11 new food retailers and some modern design, the new space is looking super fresh. It’s all thanks to local architecture group PARTISANS, who designed a non-traditional dining centre capable of seating up to 600 people at once.
Where: 65 Front Street West
Time: Open From 7 AM
Take it back to when times were simpler and visit the golden year of 1990. If Macaulay’s cute, innocent face doesn’t get you all hyped about the holidays, we don’t know what to tell you. Watching him repeatedly outsmart a couple of bone-headed burglars is positively endearing, people… so you’re gonna wanna grab tix to this show ASAP.
Where: Roy Thomson Hall– 60 Simcoe St
When: December 6–7
Time: 7:30 PM Thurs–Fri
Anyone in for an after-work skate? Set against the beautiful shoreline of Lake Ontario, Natrel Rink is one of the city’s best spots to carve up the ice. It has a heated indoor change room with lockers and washrooms, and best of all – skating is 100% free!
Where: 235 Queens Quay W
When: All Week Long
This just-opened, 80-foot tunnel is designed by local art collective Studio F Minus, AKA the designers of the giant snowflake (Frost, at Brookfield Place). It’s decked out with hanging lights and 14 million sequins… but these aren’t your basic sequins. Oh no, these babies are reversible, which means that they’ll be colour-changing, soft to the touch, and– much like Snapchat Streaks– they’ll be irresistible to anyone in Gen Z.
Where: Intersection of Yonge and St. Clair
When: Now Till December 31
That’s all we’ve got! Have an amazing week, Toronto!
