To kick-off the holiday season, we went to Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday night to witness the Cavalcade of Lights!
Last weekend Luke was a bit under the weather, so we opted for a fairly low key Something Saturday where we could just sit down in a dark room and listen to people talking, at the Hot Docs Podcast Festival.
On Saturday night, we headed out to an event with no idea what to expect. That event was "Generator Toronto", and we were incredibly glad we went!
This weekend the Art Gallery of Ontario was free to all ROM members - like us! - so we headed down to check out their latest exhibition, Mystical Landscapes. While it cost us a bit extra, it featured work by Gaugin, Monet, Van Gogh, Georgia O'Keefe and the Group of Seven so it was well worth the price of admission.
With three additional people squeezed into our 1 bedroom apartment over Halloween weekend - visitors, zombies, and theme park rides were the most prominent parts of our most recent Something Saturday!
This weekend Luke was pretty busy representing Holland Bloorview at the Capital One Gift The Code Hackathon, but we still managed to get in a few hours of exploring another neighbourhood of Toronto. This time, we set out to Christie Station to visit Korea Town, where we enjoyed some tasty lunch, and toilet-themed desserts.
This past weekend we were back in Newfoundland, mostly for the wedding of our best buddies Rebecca and Piers, but also to hang out with family for Thanksgiving festivities. We also managed to make a trip to The Rooms museum on Sunday, to see their latest exhibit commemorating the 100th anniversary of the massacre at Beaumont-Hamel during the First World War.
On Saturday, we stayed out late with the masses, wandering around the streets of downtown Toronto admiring the contemporary art exhibitions of Nuit Blanche!
After a busy day of lines and rollercoasters at Canada’s Wonderland on Saturday, we went for a leisurely walking tour on Sunday afternoon with the ROM to learn a bit more about the city we live in. Along the way we discovered just how much history can be crammed into a small neighbourhood over the span of a couple hundred years.
We're Elizabeth and Luke.
