Today in Toronto: Fashion Week, Laughable, Early Monthly Segments, Young Widows, Series 8:08

Posted by Aubrey Jax / October 20, 2014

today in TorontoToday in Toronto it's that biannual event you can't help but forget, Toronto's Fashion Week. Take a look at our preview here, and try to get street styled at least once, you mongrel you. If you're more punk than dainty, Iceage are playing a PWYC show at S.H.I.B.G.B'S.

Early Monthly Segments is back at the Gladstone - and drunk as hell from the looks of it (it's definitely past the mid-month point, EMS), but we don't mind because the event is a thin strand holding the city's experimental film community together, tipsy with calendars or not. The films, and new book, of Gregory Markopoulos will be featured. For more events, click on over to our events section.

Free events in Toronto: October 20-26, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / October 19, 2014

free events torontoFree events in Toronto this week will get a little spooky, though nothing is as terrifying as walking by the ATM to check your bank balance (also not always a free activity). The Zombie Walk and Night of Dread are big ones, plus there are parties, street fests, film screenings and more.

If you'd like to have fun on the cheap without having the pants scared off of you (I can't afford new pants either), the week holds tons of Hallo-whatever options. Showing up early to a book launch at Hashtag on Thursday will get you a free drink - then you can head to Philistine for free nail art, free shoe shines, free food, and free beer.

Here's how to live like you're not the economy's walking dead in Toronto this week.

Personally I'll be doing the stroller run with my pug in the buggy - high five me! No don't, I'm concentrating on the race. Register before Saturday at 6pm, or just show up to cheer from the sidelines. Info on the route of the various events can be found here. Never tired? Saturday's CN Tower stair climb is on too.
