Today in Toronto: Free Poutine, Vintage Crawl, Lido Pimienta + Tanya Tagaq, Michel Brault, Man Forever

Posted by Aubrey Jax / April 17, 2014

Today in TorontoToday in Toronto we can say the two words you most want to hear: free poutine. Lou Dawg's is celebrating their anniversary on King St. from noon until 2am, and the party includes a rib eating contest and - let me say it again, because I care about you - free poutine. Note: the evening before Good Friday will be a great night for both film and music fans to throw on a spring jacket and head outside (we don't even have room to list all the great concerts here).

Posted by Aubrey Jax / April 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 April 11-13, 2014.

Songkran
Songkran is a Thai New Year tradition that involves people getting wet en masse: water will be poured and clothes will be soaked in celebration. Maha Songkran is Sunday, April 13 this year - a.k.a. the day and night are equal lengths. The New Year itself will fall on April 15, but that's after all the fun has already gone down. The ritual of cleansing bad vibes and starting fresh will involve a heated tent at Khao San Road for the pouring of the water (a dry bag for items like cellphone will be supplied for each guest). No water guns are allowed, but there will be a raffle for one lone gun (good luck). La Carnita, Come and Get It, Ardor Bistro and more will make sure you're well-fed. Saturday, April 12, 8pm, Khao San Road (326 Adelaide St. West).
