House of the week: 237 Lippincott Street

Posted by Staff / July 29, 2014

237 lippincott street torontoLocated steps away from U of T, this home located at 237 Lippincott St. is move in-ready. The interior has been renovated to have modern conveniences without clashing with the red brick Victorian appeal of the exterior. The main living area feels spacious with large windows and wood floors. Though not large, the renovation has made the most of the kitchen with granite countertops and updated cabinets. Plenty of room to accommodate any aspiring chef.

Where to learn to build your own guitar in Toronto

Posted by Staff / July 29, 2014

school of lutherieEver dreamed of building your very own six-string? This hidden-away Leslieville school can teach you the craft of lutherie, from beginner courses that teach the basics of repairs to a one-year program that will give you all the know-how you need to open up shop on your own. To take the guesswork out, you can even spend a week building your own new axe from a kit of pre-cut parts (a Telecaster, Strat, Les Paul or P-bass - pick your poison).

Find out more in my profile of the Canadian School of Lutherie.

Colourful parade and dance-off turns heads in Toronto

Posted by Staff / July 28, 2014

Castles in the Sky paradeCastles in the Sky's 2014 parade this past Saturday saw costumed marchers take to the streets not to turn complicated political issues into soccer-match-esque hysteria, but to add some colour and wonder to Toronto's streets via balloons, bubbles, masks, sparkles, and a possible unicorn spotting.

Newmindspace's annual parade gathered at Bloor and Spadina at 3pm and made its way from St. George Station to Union Station and up to Maple Leaf Square, where more bubbles were blown and a dance party confused onlookers before the parade continued to the Island. This year's throng seemed a little smaller than years previous, possibly owing to the sheer mass of events going on in the city, but the feeling of well-organized spontaneity (shh, why not) kept spirits high.

Check out our photo gallery for 10 memories from Castles in the Sky's renegade parade.

Posted by Staff / July 28, 2014

toronto beer festivalToronto's Festival of Beer once again descended on Exhibition Place this weekend, bringing with it 120,000 litres of beer from 300 brands, and approximately 30,000 beer lovers (of varying degrees of sophistication) to drink it all. Beers were discussed, samples were downed, and many steins were raised, then clinked together, in a celebratory gesture.

Check out all the suds-soaked action in our gallery from the event.
