WorldPride 2014 Toronto

WorldPride 2014 Toronto, this was probably the biggest event that happened in Toronto in years, millions of people, tons of things to see and lots of fun.  I had never been to a pride in person, this was my first ever and I got to say, it was awesome!  A few streets were closed, Tho sun was strong, a little bit on the hot/humid side but the things happening on the street would keep you distracted from the rising heat.  Cosplay, mini concerts, drag shows, street performances, parades and anything you could think of was there, not to mention the parade lasted over five hours, marking it as one of the longest parades in Toronto’s history.  No words can describe this ones in a life time experience, take a look at the pictures below and you will know what I am talking about 🙂  So no matter if you are gay or straight, this is an event everyone should attend 🙂  Happy pride 🙂

Springlicious 2014

I had been to summerlicious and winterlicious numbers of times but I had never heard or been to a springlicious before so this was a very good experience.  The festival was operated by Celebrate Old Downtown Community Corp a not-for-profit organization dedicated to spotlighting the downtown; their shops, restaurants, theatre, professional services, new park and ongoing progress taking place in the Q District.  Umm, not sure about this one, I felt like a lot of things were missing, music was alright, everything on the street were kind of boring, people were super friendly but you just know that they are all from the country side of the city.  If springlicious comes again next year and I have nothing to do, I might go, but like I said, it was a good experience 😛

TAPS ON QUEEN

This is probably one of the best places to have a couple of beers and hang out with friends.  TAPS ON QUEEN is located in downtown Niagara Falls, an area which you think it’s pretty much dead but it’s not 😛 All their beers have a unique and refreshing taste, not to mention they brew their own beer, big variety of choices, very inexpensive (about $5 a pint), they also have a complimentary beer tour and you can also try their beer tasting fir about $5 dollars, sounds pretty good eh?  Not only their beers are awesome, so is their food, you can also host private functions/parties and live bands on Tuesdays and Saturdays, sounds like a perfect place to hang out right?  Anyways, I strongly recommended this place, who wouldn’t like spending a nice afternoon on a patio with a few beers 🙂

Oh oh, they also have different combos specials everyday, also don’t forget to ask for the waitress Stephanie, she is my favorite and the best 😉

Ciao wine bar

Located in downtown Yorkville, Ciao wine bar, my favorite kind of food, Italian 🙂  If I remember correctly, it was movenpick (the ice-cream place) at the same location from years ago.  Tho the entrance doesn’t look very appealing to me but once you open the door, the excitement started to kick in, the inside is very spacious and trendy.  Quite a lot of interesting dishes choices to choose from and the prices, woah, I always thought the restaurants in that area were always over priced but ummm not this place.  Ordered my all time favorite which is pasta as always and I was impressed, well, I guess in that area, it has to be or it will not survive right?  😛

Outlet Collection at Niagara Falls

The much anticipated Outlet Collection at Niagara is opened finally, if you are going from Toronto side, you exit right after you pass the skybridge, the mall would be on your right hand side, along the QEW at Glendale Avenue exit, you can’t miss it.  I am not sure whether if it is bigger than the one in Vaughn Mills or others but it is huge 🙂  I would assume after this one is opened, people would probably forget about the old one on Lundy’s lane Niagara Falls 😛  Tons of brand names stores (all outside), not to mention when I went there, it was only phase 1, there will be a phase 2 opening soon including Bass Pro Shops’ 77,000 square foot store (opening in November) as well as Polo Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Diesel Surplus and Cole Haan.  Well, if you love shopping, it is worth the drive for a visit 🙂

P.S.  Don’t forget to try out their food court as well, BIGSMOKEBURGER is there 😉
