Art and beer collide at drawing event in Kensington

Posted by Staff / July 26, 2014

draw by nightDraw By Night Toronto celebrated a year anniversary this past Wednesday with one of its most successful events to date as it attracting over 60 established and emerging artists as well as first-time doodlers to Handlebar in Kensington Market. Draw by Night is a public event promoting creativity, imagination and collaboration.

The drink-and-draw event was introduced by a featured artist Stephanie Ramon (a storyboard professional working in Toronto's TV and film industry) with a live demonstration of the theme "Streetcar Named The Rocket" - a playful topic where each doodler was able to create a unique version of what an individual TTC wagon might have looked like.

Check out our photo gallery of Draw by Night Well where artists created what might be the longest and craziest streetcar in the world.

The next event is scheduled in September with a new secret theme, make sure to follow Draw by Night's updates on their Facebook page.

toronto patios wifiThe top patios with WiFi in Toronto are the perfect places to kick back with a beer or a coffee, soak up some rays - and crank out yet another page of that paper that's due on Monday. For those who take their work everywhere (yes, even to the patio), working with a little refreshment al fresco can be a great way to take edge off what would otherwise be another airless day indoors at the keyboard.

The Best Charcuterie Plates in Toronto

Posted by Rick McGinnis / July 25, 2014

charcuterie torontoThe best charcuterie in Toronto isn't just plates of cold cuts and cornichons, but rather an old world craft taken up with great reverence and gusto by a new wave of hog-wild chefs. Luckily for Toronto diners, this translates to an astounding array of cured, smoked and salted delicacies; accompanied by the equally strong and unwaning trend of canning and preserving, we've got ourselves a veritable smorgasbord of good eating.

Here is where to find the best charcuterie in Toronto.

5 lost neighbourhoods in Toronto

Posted by Chris Bateman / July 25, 2014

toronto neighbourhoodsThe ever-expanding City of Toronto has absorbed and digested a multitude of once-independent small towns in its hungry quest for size and strength. Among the lost communities are Brockton, Carlton, Davenport, and Chester; some, like Parkdale and Yorkville, live on as well-known neighbourhoods.

The shifting urban landscape has also led to the loss of at least one prominent neighbourhood, The Ward, pictured above. Though new condos are bringing residents back to the area around City Hall, Yonge Street, and University, north of Queen, the name of the densely-populated immigrant area was lost long ago.

Here are 5 lost neighbourhoods and towns in Toronto.
