As we roll into another glorious long weekend, I have - as usual - 5 events you should consider adding to your calendar this week - especially if you're not headed up to Montreal for Osheaga!
FUN: Harry Potter Laser Quest
While you might think laser tag is for kids, there's no reason to stop doing fun kid things just because you're all grown up now. What's more fun than late night laser tag with your pals, in celebration of the wizard's day of birth!
Where: Laser Quest East
When: July 31st, 10pm
MUSIC: Jack White
If you're not seeing Jack White this week, and you are in Toronto, you either don't know what you're missing, or you forgot to buy tickets - luckily it's not too late!
Where: Air Canada Centre
When: July 31st, 8pm
ART: Intermission VOL III Victory / Vice
This creative mixed bag event brings together the work of Brendan Canning, The Double Cuts, The Great Grantsby, an arts market, and the food of Easy Boy Sandwich Co. An event for the culturally curious, this final installment of CanStage's Intermission series aims to take on the mercurial nature of identity.
Where: Berkeley Theatre
When: Thursday July 31st, 8pm
FESTIVAL: Veld Music Festival
Just because you didn't manage to arrange a trip to Osheaga this year, doesn't mean you're out of luck for filling your summer music festival needs this weekend. While Veld may offer a much more electronic focused lineup than our friends up north, it's still guaranteed to be a huge party in the park.
Where: Downsview Park
When: August 2 -3, 11am - 11pm
FOOD: Food Truck Fest
Foodies, get your butt to Woodbine this weekend for one of the most exciting events your palate can take in this summer. This is where all of the food trucks gather in one place to make your every delicious dream come true.
Where: Woodbine Park
When: August 2-3, 1pm - 11pm
