Out On The Town With Mike Chalut
Holy Hot Stuff! What a heat wave … and August is about to get even hotter! Things are heating up all over the city — concerts, festivals and how about our Toronto Blue Jays? Hot! Hot! Hot! Our goal at ONtheGO is to keep you informed and to keep you cool during these hot months with recipes and summer trends to impress your friends and family. Keep this copy of ONtheGO all month long to keep you entertained. Also, stay hydrated — drink lots of water and be sure to always have sunscreen in your bag at all times when pounding the pavement and drinking on a patio. A very happy August to you! Now time for you to get ONtheGO!
This is an amazing music festival hosted by our Toronto All Star, Drake! The action starts at the Air Canada Centre and doors open at 7pm! Tickets are sold out but I am sure you can still score some online! There will be after parties all over the city and you never know where Drake is going to turn up!
Go To Church!
So many amazing restaurants are always popping up in our city! A hot new place to eat, drink and play just opened up and I give it 2 thumbs way up! Church Aperitivo Bar — located at 1090 Queen Street West is an Italian food lover’s dream to make a fashion statement! Go and stay the night! This resto-lounge is actually built in an old church — so go and confess your sins and make more on the dance floor after an over the top dinner service! The menu is over the top — be sure to order the gnocchi! Make a reso at churchaperitivobar.com.
Every Weekend in August!
