Santa Claus is coming to Toronto

This Sunday, The Santa Claus Parade will take over downtown, winding from Christie Pits to the St. Lawrence Market, starting at 12:30 p.m. The parade, which is one of the largest children’s parades in the world, is a pretty good indication that it’s time to start stringing those lights, picking that holly and decorating those trees.

Unleash your inner foodie

If there’s a cocktail or dinner party in your future, it may behoove you to hit up the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo this weekend. Taste over 1,500 wines, beers and spirits from around the world, learn about gourmet cheese or visit the Food Network stage and listen to some food experts. Don’t forget to stock up on foodie gadgets, too.

Grey has never looked so golden

The 100th year of the Grey Cup is upon us, bringing a 10-day and 11-night festival with it. Starting this weekend, enjoy football festivities all around Toronto until the final game on Nov. 25. With events and activities ranging from cheerleading to zip-lining to a football film fest, it’s going to be a packed 10 days.

Lightfoot? Yes. Folk heavyweight? Absolutely

Canadian folk icon Gordon Lightfoot returns to Massey Hall this weekend during his sixth decade of touring. Since he began his career, Lightfoot has helped shape the folk-pop world. The multiple Juno-winner and Grammy nominee has played more shows at Massey Hall than any other individual artist in the Hall's history.

Comic Stripped: Try stoner comedy while you still can

And what might this have to do with Toronto comedy? Well, for one thing, they won’t be arrested if they spark up outside their favourite club. Comics generally like pot. It’s use is rampant and almost universal in the community. A lot of them feel there’s a link between its use and creativity. Well, at the very least, it does make you giggle.
