Out On The Town With Mike Chalut
YAY for MAY! A month full of bizarre and unique holidays that I am sure you’ve never heard of. This is the month to celebrate barbecues, bikes, salads and blood pressure. Get your body checked out and ready for the summer — we all need a tune up! The sunshine in our city is here to stay so that means BBQ season is upon us and our team at ONtheGO has you covered with some tasty treats to make you an Iron Chef … well maybe I am exaggerating a bit, but it is our promise to always make you look good! It’s no secret that our Toronto Blue Jays have had a rough start this year but never lose hope … there are over a million games and lots of time for a miracle … head to Rogers Centre for all the fun family action. Patio season is here, it’s time for you to get out of hibernation, wiggle on the streets of Toronto and of course always be ONtheGO. Happy May!
CINCO DE MAYO
This is the day the Mexican Army Defeated the French Army at the Battle of Puebla. That means it’s a day to drink tequila, dance, party your guts out and celebrate our Hispanic Community at any of Toronto’s top Mexican Restaurants! Head to the Distillery District for tacos, tequila and a stunning patio at El Catrin, awarded Best Mexican by Dine TO!
May 13th – June 4th
The new Canadian musical is adapted from Pushkin’s timeless poem and Tchaikovsky’s renowned opera, featuring a high-energy musical score to tell a sweeping tale of unrequited love, infatuation, and intrigue. When the young Tatyana falls in love with the self-obsessed aristocrat Onegin, he firmly rejects her, arousing passionate love letters, noble duels, and second chances. Tickets start at $35.00 and all the action takes place at The Berkeley Street Theatre. For tickets head to canadianstage.com.
