Here’s a trio of the hottest things you can do in the city to kick off the week.*
Our mayor, in case you haven’t heard, has done a couple of things that have garnered worldwide attention. Well, Robyn Dolittle was one of only three journalists to view the infamous crack video and she’s written an entire book about Rob Ford’s exploits. She’ll be talking at Bloor Hot Docs cinema with Kirstine Stewart, CEO of Twitter Canada. Things are gonna be said.
People debate whether or not The Bard actually wrote Edmund Ironside, but what’s not up for debate is that 16 professional actors will perform it tonight at Woodlot Restaurant in an unrehearsed reading. The kitchen will be closed but you’ll find beer, tea, and coffee. Hey, obscure Shakespeare is better than no Shakespeare.
Groundhog Day (extended)
Forget what Wiarton Willie said yesterday – that guy is living in a shadow world. Celebrate the extent of winter with the 5th Annual Groundhog Day Challenge. The pork-themed chef challenge found a new home this year at Richmond Station and will feature chefs from some of the hottest restaurants in the city, including Le Select, The Saint Tavern, Farmhouse Tavern, and more. Your stomach wants this.
*Of course, no one would blame you for staying in and watching every movie Philip Seymour Hoffman ever made. It’s an education, really.
