In need of a good spanking?

For four days only, Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody will play at the Panasonic Theatre, mixing the excitement of Fifty Shades of Grey with the hilarity of The Second City. For those looking for pre-show drinks, a Spank! cocktail will be served. Stay after the show and you can grab a photo with Mr. Dangerous and meet the other cast members.

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.

The Shaw Festival’s Alice in Wonderland is a trip down the rabbit hole for Toronto actor Tara Rosling

“I had to let that go right out of the gate,” says Toronto actor Tara Rosling, recalling the idea of playing 10-year-old Alice in the Shaw Festival production. “I said, ‘Peter [acclaimed director Peter Hinton], dude, I’m in my 40s. It doesn’t help that I’m filmed and projected at one point, when Alice is growing.… I have a four-foot face — that won’t sell me as a 10-year-old.’ ”
