ART: 99th Annual OCAD University Graduate Exhibition
If you have been thinking about starting an art collection but are on a limited budget, this is the place to begin your search. These artists are at the beginning of their career, meaning you can score something truly beautiful that will grow in value as the artists career grows, for a small fraction of the price you'll be paying for the same artist's work in a few years.
When: May 1st 6:30pm - May 4th 5pm
COMEDY: SheDot Festival
Women in comedy are sadly still underappreciated and seen as a rarity, despite the fact that Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, and the Broad City chicks basically dominate the comedy world right now. This week you have the opportunity to witness the best female comedians currently working in and around Toronto at Comedy Bar, so please take this opportunity to finally put to rest that tired "Are women funny?" debate.
Where: Comedy Bar
When: May 1st - 4th
FASHION: Celebrity Men's Fashion Show
Fundraising and fierce fashion come together to support the Kidney Foundation, an organization currently celebrating 50 years of kidney research. Drinks, hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction will compliment the fashion show. Tix are a steep $125, but the money is definitely going to a worthy cause!
Where: Liberty Grand
When: April 30th, 6:30pm
FUN: Haunted Toronto Scavenger Hunt
I am one of those people who still (as a full grown adult) really loves stuff like this. When I went on a trip to Victoria BC I went on one of those touristy haunted walk tours just for the hell of it. Adventures like this are a great way to discover parts of your city you've never seen before, and they're an amazing date night idea as well.
Where: Meet in front of the ROM
When: May 3rd, 7pm
FOOD: 3rd Annual Toronto Wing Festival
Attention foodies. Please attend and enjoy this event for me. Sadly I will be out of town, or else I would be there with you, stuffing my face with delicious chicken wings of every flavour. I am already jealous of you.
Where: Daniels Spectrum
When: May 4th, 1:30pm
