5 new things to do with your BFF in Toronto this winter

New things to do with your BFF in Toronto this winter will introduce you to activities and places you've likely never tried before. Toronto has a new arcade bar, beer hall and theatre space, which are all way more exciting than taking a walk in a cold and snowy park.

Here are 5 things to do with your BFF in Toronto this winter.

Have a night out at the city's new arcade bar

Head to the Annex with your BFF and visit the city's ultimate bar and arcade hybrid. Check your coats and stay a while at Tilt. It features everything from pinball to classic fairground games and giant screen TVs for video game fun. On top of all that it has gulity-pleasure snacks and loads of beer on tap.

Go skiing indoors

The Axis Freestyle Academy brings the joys of skiing and snowboarding indoors. There are large dry slopes as well as trampolines to practice your balance and tricks. If you want to learn new skills before hitting the real slopes, there are coaching sessions available too.

Catch a performance at Toronto's newest theatre space

Crow's Theatre opens in January and it's the city's newest theatre space. You can find it at 345 Carlaw Ave, and catch a play, live poetry, a concert or an art show here. The schedule is already booked well into 2017, so pencil in this friend date now.

Try out fat biking in the Don Valley

Take a winter bike ride away from the roads and slush of downtown thanks to Sweet Pete's Bike Shop, which has teamed up with Evergreen Brick Works to rent out fat tire bikes for fun trail rides. The oversized tires are hilariously large, but allow you to ride like a pro through the snow. There are also group rides available. Rentals are $20 an hour and $75 a day.

Have a beer and sausage at a new beer hall

Biere Halle is the city's newest German-style beer spot. It officially opens this week inside The Great Hall at Queen and Dovercourt. Look forward to a super social space with lots of schnitzel and cold pilsners.
