today in TorontoToday in Toronto Diner en Blanc, one of September's most anticipated food events, will light up the night with their pop-up's premise of everyone wearing white while eating dinner, which seems dangerous. And a little baffling. The secret location is TBA.

The free art bus is running to Blackwood Gallery in Mississauga for Falsework, a must-see exhibit for those who believe they should get paid for sharing on Facebook. By the hour! Back-wages! If school buses make you dizzy, there are plenty of art events downtown, including Design Exchange opening their Politics of Fashion show and Ryerson Image Centre hosting their fall openings.
