Nominations for the Notable Awards
We’re hosting the inaugural Notable Awards on November 10th, and this night will be a celebration of Canada’s Young Professionals unlike anything you’ve experienced before. Leading up to the event, we’re inviting our readers to nominate worthy YPs across 13 different categories at notable.ca/awards. Go ahead and nominate the best YP you know. Nom’s close midnight on October 14th.
This new beer hall at Bloor and Bathurst (690 Euclid Avenue) boasts an awesome list of brews alongside a Croatian-style menu cultivated by Chef Rodney Bowers – who recently opened Hey! Meatball on College West. HRVATI Bar is most definitely a new must-see spot on the Annex strip.
Topshop/Topman First Stand-alone at Yorkdale
Style-savvy YPs went shop-happy this summer when Topshop and Topman released capsule collections at a few The Bay locations, and now this UK-based brand has its own shop at Yorkdale Mall. It opened just this past Wednesday, and has styles that are street chic and totally unique. Forgive the pun, but they’re the tops.
Operanation 8: A Muse Ball
Operanation has fast-become one of the hottest events not to be missed, and the 8th year of this fundraiser for the Candian Opera Company is no different. This soiree will see dapper YPs dancing, mingling, and swaying to a sure-to-be amazing performance by Rufus Wainwright. It’s all happening on October 21st at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
Mike D’Urzo’s Mind Kontrol
Magician Mike D’Urzo is back in Toronto with an interactive show combining comedy, magic, mind control and psychological illusions. Banking on the success of last year’s sold-out performances, D’Urzo puts twists on magic classics while combining distinctive flair and humour that both engages and enchants audiences. Shows run the 20th through the 23rd at the Al Green Theatre.
Eat to the Beat
One of the most delicious fundraisers around, Willow Breast Cancer’s Eat to the Beat Gala (on the 18th at Roy Thomson Hall) features over 60 of Canada’s finest female chefs, all creating culinary conquests in support of breast cancer research. The ‘class with a bit of sass’ themed event is known around town as one of the best annual fundraisers, and with this year’s lineup, that designation seems safe.
