Fleetwood Mac Air Canada Centre
Time to rock it out at the Air Canada Centre with Fleetwood Mac! These rockers always put on a good show! I was able to see this show out west and it was hands down one of the greatest concerts I have ever seen in my life! Head to Ticketmaster to get tickets before they sell out!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Now if you plan to take out that special someone and haven’t made a reservation … DO IT NOW! Toronto’s Restaurant scene is one of the best in the world. So wherever you decide to go you can’t miss, but you will need a reservation. My favourite place for this special day is located in Yorkville. They have amazing food, delicious signature cocktails and the best chocolate in Toronto. Shop or dine at Moroco Chocolat located at 99 Yorkville Avenue; it is stunning! www.morocochocolat.com
