Top 5 things to do in Toronto this week [May 26 - June 1st] !

So the weather has very suddenly turned into summer over the past weekend, and I, like the rest of you, couldn't be happier.

While I sit in the sunshine writing this, here are the five events I'm most excited for this week:

THEATRE: Flashdance 

Mirvish is bringing the classic film to the stage with this musical version of the beloved 80s film classic, Flashdance. And in terms of films that transfer well into the musical medium - one all about the importance of dance has to be up there. Looking forward to this one! 

Where: Ed Mirvish Theatre

When:  May 27th - June 8th

MUSIC: Kurt Vile

If you are unfamiliar with this legendary guitarist, you have a golden opportunity to have your face rocked off by him on Wednesday night at the Phoenix. It was supposed to be at the Horseshoe, but the demand for tickets was so massive they had to move it to the Phoenix. That should be enough to motivate you. 
Where: Phoenix Concert Theatre

When: May 28th, 9pm

CHARITY: Fight To End Cancer Charity Boxing Gala 

While charity events are never cheap, there's no better way to spend $225 than towards fighting cancer. If you have that kind of cash to donate, you'll get a fancy dinner and access to an Olympic style boxing match, something we rarely get a chance to witness in Toronto. All proceeds go to Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. 

Where: The Old Mill Inn

When: May 31st, 5pm

SHOP: Midnight MRKT

Midnight MRKT is known for bringing great music, eats, fashion and retailers together for a late night shopping experience you won't find anywhere else in the city. These events are infrequent, but always well worth the wait, so don't miss out or it'll be a while before you get the opportunity again!

Where: 2nd Floor Events

When: May 30th, 9pm - 1am

OUTDOORS: Toronto Island House & History Tour 

There's really no better way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon than exploring the historic and beautiful properties on Ward Island. Take the ferry over, and once the tour is done you can spend some time on the beach sunbathing. The perfect end to the week. 

Where: Ward Island

When: June 1st, 12-5pm

Psssttt ! Envoie-ça à ton ami!
