Are you a YouTube fiend (aren’t we all…)? Grab your date and take them to the YouTube Music Market to enjoy some food, drinks, local music, and a live performance by Canadian singer-songwriter Roy Woods (Saturday only). There will also be several hot DJs, local Toronto food favourites, and an all-around great time.
This epic music night is happening on Friday, Oct. 19th from 7-11pm, and Saturday, Oct. 20th from 5-11pm at 464 King Street West. Entrance is free, just download the YouTube Music app and show it for entry. This is an outdoor event so dress warmly – or make it an excuse to cuddle up to your date.
The cold weather is approaching, and what’s better than a nice warm bowl of soup with your significant other? You can satisfy your love of soup with the love of your life by going to the Toronto Soup Festival this weekend. You can taste a variety of gourmet soups, baked goods, warm drinks, then check out live entertainment and artisan exhibits. You can also vote for your favourite soup to win the People’s Choice Award.
The Soup Festival is happening on Saturday, Oct. 20th from 12-4pm, and Sunday the 21st from 12-3pm at Garrison Common (100 Garrison Rd). Tickets are $15 per person online on their website. Don’t forget to B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Bowl – and spoon!) to make your visit more environmentally friendly. Get your soup and your flirt game on!
Enjoy an evening of fine arts at the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery on Friday, Oct. 19th. Bring your thinking cap – oh, and your date – and step into the Gallery’s new Fall 2018 exhibit, featuring artists Karla Black, Beth Stuart, Vivian Suter with Elisabeth Wild, and more. You can also sit in on artist talks, performances and film screenings, which happen to make great dinner conversation for a post-party late-night bite.
Admission is free, and a cash bar will be available all evening. The gallery is located at 231 Queens Quay West, and the launch is happening from 8-11pm.
