The Rink at Evergreen Brick Works
Evergreen Brick Works’ meandering outdoor skating rink hosts Thursday evening skating 5-9 p.m., and afternoon skates Sat-Sun 11 a.m.–4 p.m. Rentals $5. Bonus: eclectic food truck offerings are priceless.
Parts & Labour
Parkdale eats and parties at Parts & Labour, a west-end Toronto hip spot serving oddities such as Fried Pig Face (pork croquettes), horse tenderloin and buffalo quail. Not different enough? Head downstairs for a blast of alternative music.
Leslieville is loved as a loopy place to wander, shop and dine. Home to Toronto’s Film District, think: vintage furniture, freaky fashion and funky brunch spots.
