The Aga Khan Museum of Islamic art will open its doors to the public, and one of the best dance parties of the month will go late at Adelaide Hall with Andy Stott.

Today in Toronto: Diner en Blanc, Politics of Fashion, Beerworking, ManifesTO, Falsework, Little Terrors

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 17, 2014

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.

Today in Toronto: Rob Ford The Musical, Craft Your Change, Dan Adler, Art Battle, Root Hog or Die

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 16, 2014

Today in TorontoToday in Toronto Rob Ford the Musical (I believe this is the second unique Rob Ford musical happening) will show its first preview performance at Factory Theatre. It runs until September 28th. Sheldon Bergstrom ("Shrek" in Shrek The Musical) plays Ford: role of a lifetime. Will recent developments give the production a more sombre tone? Let's hope this is the last musical to bear the Ford name.

Toronto Beer Week continues with Craft Your Change at Beer Academy, where you can drink up and shop for volunteer opportunities - total good vibes. Comic fans should catch Root Hog or Die at the Bloor: the doc follows zine-maker John Porcellino, with a Q&A to follow. For more events, click on over to our events section.

Free events in Toronto: September 15-21, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 14, 2014

free events torontoFree events in Toronto this week are dominated by the arts, as opposed to free events to have your accounting done or your bathroom renovated - so it's another ordinary week in the great cultural bastion of the Ford dynasty.

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.

Weekend events in Toronto: September 12-14, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 11, 2014

weekend events TorontoWeekend events in Toronto is our guide to events happening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here's what's happening in Toronto this Sept 12-14, 2014.

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
