Today in Toronto: Laughable, Post A Letter, The War On Drugs, Russian Circles, Charles Bradley, Beer Week
We the broke (not accountants) and filthy (faulty bathroom pipes) owe a lot to the Manifesto Fest this week, back for another year of art, dance, and a huge free hip hop show at Yonge-Dundas Square. Then there's a free bus ride to Blackwood Gallery in Mississauga, and free art openings at Design Exchange, Ryerson Image Centre, and more. Oh, and Unlovable plans to serve free cake on Wednesday.
Here's how to live like you've been granted license for the ingestion of cake in Toronto this week.
Toronto Beer Week
Toronto Beer Week takes place at venues across the city, featuring tasting nights, homebrew competitions, tap takeovers and all the types of events that you see at Ontario Craft Beer Week but without the strict provincial focus. The idea is to celebrate craft beer in all its forms, so regardless of its origin, the beer on offer won't be coming from massive international brewers. Check out our day-by-day guide here. Sept 12-20. BJ
