Urban Toronto has some information on the launch of River City Phase 3, which will be located just south of the current phases, just south of the Eastern Avenue ramp.
Corktown favourite Adornments on Queen has published their May newsletter. This month, they’re offering 40% off all garden goods and furniture and anything with a floral/flower motif. You’d be a fool to miss these offers. Click here to check out the newsletter.
Events for the week of May 4, 2014
The big event, of course, is the monthly meeting of the Corktown Residents & Business Association. It’ll happen this Tuesday, May 6 at Dominion on Queen (500 Queen East, at Sumach) in the back room. We’re honoured this month to welcome guests from Agathom Co. architects, a local firm with a great Corktown story. The meeting will run from 7 to 9 p.m. Click here for details.
On stage in Corktown this week, check out THE ROAD TO MECCA at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. It just opened last week, and promises to examine “the nature of friendship, the necessity of self-expression, and the struggle of a free-spirited individual in an intolerant society.” It runs through May 28 and you can score tickets online.
In other theatrical news, the line up and schedule for Alumnae Theatre’s BIG IDEAS — a showcase of works-in-progress from the award-winning writers of Alumnae’s New Play Development Group — has been posted. You can view the details on their website — the performances start on May 13 and run through May 17.
The Ontario Heritage Trust would like to invite you to a Love(ly) Cocktail Party at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse this Thursday, May 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. Funds raised at the party will go toward helping to maintain the schoolhouse for future generations. Details are posted online.
Also on Thursday, check out the return of the WEE FOLK CLUB at Dominion on Queen. This month, they’re featuring the folkish stylings of Aengus Finnan and Sweet Felons All. It runs from 7:30 p.m., with cover costing just ten bucks. Details are at their website.
If you’re anything like me, you totally forgot that this weekend is Mother’s Day. Not to worry: The Healthy Road has you covered with Mother’s Day celebrations on Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10. Here are the details:
We are celebrating Moms with in store specials, food samplings with Wellness Chef Andrew Muto (there on Saturday) and loads of FREE samples. We also have several great baskets for you to enter to win. Plus if you are still in need of a gift for Mom – we have lots of great ideas and products at the store. We can even gift wrap that for you!
Seems like a no brainer. You can learn more at the Healthy Road’s website.
And just in case it’s slipped your mind, remember that the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival is running all month long. We posted a list of Corktown photo exhibitions in last weeks’ news update.
