Love a Heart Fundraiser
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the 2nd Annual Love a Heart Bachelor and Bachelorette Auction for the Heart and Stroke Foundation is taking bids for some sly studs and lovely ladies on the 9th at the Hideout (484 Queen Street West). You may not find love, but at least you’ll be supporting a notable cause.

ICRF’s Revolving Tables
 The 2nd Annual Revolving Tables fundraiser for the ICRF, hosted by none other than yours truly, connects top CEOs, executives, and over 250 young professionals, also on the 9th at the Park Hyatt. Mix and mingle with top-level businesspeople during the three-course dinner while getting advice from the elite and helping out this fantastic fund.

Just Opened: Church Aperitivo Bar
Based on the classic Italian tradition, Church Aperitivo Bar opened last night, and is serving up share plates – tapas, if you will – and luxe libations for the Queen West crowd. Imbibing here is so good you might end up calling out a Hail Mary or two. 1090 Queen Street West.

The Harlem Globetrotters
Those fancifully foot-worked dribbling all-stars are set to take over the Rogers Centre this Saturday and Sunday, wowing fans with their trademark stylings. The Harlem Globetrotters have been a bit of a cliche for years, but one we’re happy to perpetuate.

By the Pound Reweighed
Over 100 artists will sell their original works as part of the second By The Pound, this time with the moniker Reweighed. The Goodfellas Gallery (1266 Queen Street West) is the spot on the 9th, where local art will be sold in a way befitting quality: you buy the best meat at a butcher shop by the pound, so why not use that model to pick up some amazing original art…?
