Your photos of Toronto's first major snow storm

Posted by Staff / December 12, 2014

toronto snowstorm 2014Toronto got its first real dumping of snow yesterday, which bathed the city in white for a pretty morning scene before everything turned bad when people hit the road to commute to work. The city was hit harder than expected, which meant that the afternoon ride back home wasn't any better -- and any prettiness that one could have cited in the morning was replaced by giant heaps of slush sure to cause soaked feet all around town.

future is the futureToronto has a new online clothing store that also happens to not be gender specific.

The idea for the store has its roots in the notion that it's sometimes easier to shop for clothes based on how they look on someone rather than being forced to browse via the traditional men's or women's paradigm.

15 year strong Little Italy record shop an oasis for CDs

Posted by Staff / December 7, 2014

Soundscapes TorontoIn a town that loves vinyl, it's astonishing to find out one Little Italy record shop owes more than three forths of its income to that vanishing medium, CDs - new CDs. The neighbourhood fixture just celebrated their 15th birthday on College Street, and over the years their carefully selected stock, live in-store performances, and eye catching window displays have made the store a must stop for Toronto music fans - CD and vinyl hunters alike.
