When Clara and I get together with our friends, we love playing games: board games, charades, you name it! There's something so fun and appealing about board games especially that can keep everyone entertained and having a good time. Last week, we were invited for a game night at the Snakes & Lagers location on College and Bathurst to celebrate a launch of Mattel Game On's newest addition, Bounce Off! There's no better place to do this than Toronto's most popular board game cafe & bar.

On National Tequila Day, it's only natural that you head to a patio to soak up the sun with Tequila cocktails in hand, or if you had a real bad day at work, shots. That's exactly what I did - went to the gorgeous patio party at Milagro Cantina on Queen West.

EVENT | Taste of Toronto July 24 - 27 at Fort York - this summer's foodie event you don't want to miss!
It's finally here! I feel like we have been talking & writing about Taste of Toronto for months now, and after attending the opening night yesterday, I urge you, don't miss out! Celebrity chefs, demonstrations, wine tastings and most of all, the delicious food was very worthwhile. In fact, I'm going again on Saturday ;)

Time is flying by and we want to enjoy summer as much as we can (patios anyone?). Of course, we want you to as well! As we don't get a long summer season like other cities in the world, the month of June, July and August need to be taken advantage of. Here are 10 summer specials in the city that you should keep your radar on for:

In a world that is primarily dominated by coffee and coffee inspired drinks, tea has been slowly creeping back into the main stage as an alternative to coffee. We absolutely love how much tea has evolved and now there are so many different blends of tea that you can enjoy!

The newest business to grace the bustling King West neighbourhood is no other than Portland Variety. When I first heard the name, I couldn't quite figure out whether it would be a convenience store, a snack shop, a cafe, or a bakery. Little did I know, it's actually a café and bakery from 7AM to 3PM and transforms at 5PM, into a tapas restaurant and cocktail bar serving delicious and sharable pintxos. Portland Variety caters to pretty much everyone at any time of the day or night. I mean, the name says it all, doesn't it?

For some of us, trips to the supermarket is a weekly routine. We are certainly blessed to have a wide variety of supermarkets, farmers markets and butchers to get all of our grocery needs. Although we're buying produce all the time, we don't always know where it's coming from. We were very fortunate to be able to attend a day trip organized by Farm & Food Care Ontario to learn more about the grain and cattle industry in Ontario.
