ART | Art Spin
Bike lovers and art admirers team up for the Annual Art Spin Exhibition this evening in Dufferin Grove Park. A cycling art tour around the city that hits up multi-disciplinary galleries along the way, Art Spin showcases the vibrant art scene in various neighbourhoods and boasts a pretty good exhibition after party. Join other riders for a spin--not crawl--through the city to see some local art.
Dufferin Grove Park (875 Dufferin Street) 6:30PM Free

THEATRE | Odds and Ends Festival
Keep it short, stupid. The Odds and Ends Festival rolls out 13 plays over 4 days by adhering to the "shorter is better" mantra. 10 new, young playwrights premiere their works beginning tonight with three pieces by writers Mariana Gurgis, Evan Schwarzbaum and Ashley Robinson. All plays are either samples or completed works, all under 30 minutes, and are produced by Newborn Theatre. Tickets are available through the Tarragon Theatre box office.
Tarragon Theatre (30 Bridgman Avenue) 8PM

SPORT | Yoga In The Park
Summer is coming to a close and the best way to enjoy the remainder of the season is by participating in Get Out!'s outdoor group yoga session. Meeting at Winchester Square at 7PM, the class will be lead by internationally renowned Ashtanga yoga teacher Emma O'Neill. Yoga mats will be provided if participants do not have their own and $5 donations will be accepted in support of LGBT Youth Line. Get outside for some yoga in the park!
Winchester Square (474 Ontario Street) 7PM $5 suggested donation

FOOD | Insanewich! Food Tour
Is there anything better than a good sandwich? The art of the sandwich will be explored at this morning's Foodies on Foot tour, which will take sandwich lovers through Toronto to specialty shops where they will find the best marinated meats and toppings. Finding the best sammie is the goal of this hungry group of foodies, who will follow their guide to some local joints on foot. The tour is approximately 3-4 hours and if you can't make today's, there will be a second Insanewich tour on Saturday.
Foodies on Foot (75 Portland Street) 11AM $75

MUSIC | Kim Churchill and Daniel Champagne
Aussie roots musicians Kim Churchill and Daniel Champagne are no strangers to the Canadian festival circuit, having made appearances regularly at local folk fests. Tonight, the two musicians team up for an early co-performance at The Dakota Tavern, each bringing their individual folk sounds together with harmonicas and guitars to perform songs from their respective 2012 albums. Tickets will be available at the door.
The Dakota Tavern (249 Ossington Avenue) 7PM $15
