Weekend events in Toronto: November 21-23, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / November 20, 2014

weekend events torontoWeekend events in Toronto is our guide to events happening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here's what's happening in Toronto this Nov 21-23, 2014.

Toronto Mini Maker Faire
Head to the Toronto Reference Library this weekend for Maker Faire to find over 100 exhibits plus workshops, yarn bombing, 3D printing, and the rampant overuse of the word "maker" as a substitute for "person who does stuff." The best part? It's totally free. Think about what you want to 3D print beforehand to avoid that glazed, overwhelmed look all 3D printing workshop tutors know too well. Saturday, Nov 22 - Sunday Nov 23, Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge Street).

Today in Toronto: Just Eat It, shopAGO Trunk Shows, Grilled Cheese Fundraiser, Nu Music Nite, Interpol

Posted by Aubrey Jax / November 18, 2014

today in torontoToday in Toronto Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story will ask us why we throw away 50% of our food. Having worked at a raw smoothie bar, I can back up this figure. Your green smoothies make me sad. Nu Music Nite at The Horseshoe Tavern is free and features Ascot Royals, Amy Zen, Black Collar Union, and Junior Felix.

OCAD's print program is pretty stellar, and you can support them all day by buying your very favourite thing: grilled cheese. Chaos and waste will likely not ensue. If you're feeling blue about yourself, there's also free therapy. I cannot confirm the value of free therapy. For more events, click on over to our events section.

The installation at Angell Gallery is home not just to Giboulo's huge, multi-room (and multi platform) HYPERland diorama, but more than a half dozen other, smaller works. It's a lot to take in.
