Here’s a trio of the hottest things you can do on the last Hump Day in May.*
Where: Pia Bouman, 6 Noble St., or Brockton Collective, 442 Dufferin St, Studio A
The 9th Annual Toronto Festival of Clowns kicks off its five-day run tonight. And here’s the thing: it’s not all just red noses and big shoes; most of these people are artists in every sense of the word. There are dozens of different shows and opportunities for you to stop living in the past and see what the future of clowning is all about.
Date: May 28-31
Everyone loves burgers. (Well, everyone who eats meat loves burgers.) And this week, you won’t have to pay more than $5 per. More than 60 restaurants throughout the city (including the likes of Holy Chuck Burgers, Rock Lobster Food Co., and The County General) will be offering up specialty burgers to celebrate the lead up to Burger Day on June 1, at which you’ll be able to try slider versions of all your favourites. We know, we’re drooling too.
Where: Molson Amphitheatre
Surfer and soft-rock singer extraordinaire, JJ will be in town making your body sway to songs with ridiculous titles and childish cartoons. Honestly, we’re no longer sure at this point whether or not this is a kid’s show. But one thing is for sure: these guys will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. That’s right, Edward and crew are opening up the night. Go dance on the lawn and pretend it’s not a Wednesday.
*Of course, no one would blame you for staying in to practice your first pitch…
