Secret Menu & Side Streets Food Tour

October 6, November 10, 11:00 AM, Secret Menu & Side Streets Food Tour.

First, we took you for a day in the life of a Toronto foodie on our Foodies on Foot Favourites Food Tour, then, we took you across one of the most entertaining routes in the city on our 501 Streetcar Food Tour, and, now, we are making you a true foodie insider, by exposing the secret menus at some of our favourite locations throughout the city, and, bringing out some of the hidden gems that are off the beaten path. Join us for our secret menus & side streets food tour. We will visit 5-6 locations where we will indulge in either “off menu” items or track down some of the tastiest places that are tucked away on a side street.

EdgeWalk

Season 3 starts April 15, 2013

Toronto’s newest and tallest attraction has adventure lovers taking a walk OUTSIDE – around the circumference of the roof! So, do you dare to test your limits and experience the thrill of a lifetime?

EdgeWalk is CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its 35 year history, and the first of its kind in North America. It is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground. Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them.

Visit the EdgeWalk site for more information and to book your adventure today!

Mesopotamia

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) hosts Mesopotamia in its premiere North American engagement from June 22, 2013 to January 5, 2014. The internationally touring exhibition of the ancient civilization is presented in Toronto by the British Museum in collaboration with the ROM.

More than 3,000 years of accomplishments by the civilization are explored in the exhibition. Widely credited with the invention or development of writing, long-distance communication, law, trade networks, and the first empires, Mesopotamian society also launched and advanced literature and sophisticated art, concurrently with great intellectual, spiritual, and scientific advances. These achievements still influence us today.

Mesopotamia showcases more than 170 priceless objects from the eminent collections of the British Museum. These artifacts, most never before seen in Canada, are augmented by those from the ROM’s own renowned collections and other leading institutions, including the University of Chicago Oriental Institute Museum, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum, Philadelphia), and the Detroit Institute of Arts. Presented in a series of well-defined themes, the exhibition features an outstanding selection of artifacts: stunning jewellery, dramatic stone sculptures, and impressive wall reliefs.
