Mix it Up in Bloor West Village!

Standard

Welcome in Spring with our latest Pop-Up Tour. Our next event, Mix It Up in Bloor West Village happens Wednesday, March 22 at 7:15pm.

We will begin at Centauri Arts, where you can discover your inner author. Our next stop is the unique Archtop Cafe for a tea tasting with a food pairing. We end the evening at Bloom Restaurant, where we will learn how to mix Pisco Sour and Caipirinha cocktails, and enjoy them with finger foods.

That’s a lot of delicious food and drink, and a lot of fun, for $30 per person. And all food, drink, and extras are included! But there are only spots for 10 people (and they’re going quickly), so go to the link and snap up your tickets now.

Here are some shots from our last event – Good Taste at Annette and Runnymede II: Continue reading

Local Day Camp Fair 2017

Standard

On February 5, The Westside’s Story hosted its 2nd annual Local Day Camp Fair, at Pinot’s Palette. A number of camps participated, sending enthusiastic representatives, and a selection of informative literature and interactive elements for parents and children.

Parents were able to speak to camp representatives, ask them in-depth questions about camp curriculum and other details, and get a feel for the atmosphere the camps provide. And kids were able to meet camp facilitators and get a feel for whether a specific camp was right for them.

The diversity of the showcased camps was quite impressive, from focus on the arts and outdoors activities, to building self esteem, and STEM learning. It was a wonderful opportunity to delve more deeply into the camps that are available for our children. And Pinot’s Palette was a wonderful and generous host location for our event, and a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.

If you missed the chance to drop by the Local Day Camp Fair, please email junctionbwv@gmail.com to request a list of links for all participating camps.
