Summer you’ve been a blast but now its time to say goodbye! As much as i love heat of the summer and being able to throw on some flip flops and run out the door, I could not be more excited for the chilly summer weather to arrive. When Labour day long weekend hits that is when you know its really over. So what does one do to end of their last weekend of the summer with a bang in Toronto you ask? Take a look at what i did this weekend.
- A concert at the Molson amphitheatre I am a huge country music fan and conveniently my favourite band Florida Georgia line happened to be on tour this past weekend. I checked it out with my girlfriends and to say i had the time of my life would be an understatement.
- Check out the Canadian National Exhibition ( CNE / The EX )
Who doesn’t love a summer fair? And the CNE is the kind you can’t wait to hit up every after year in T.O. Every year towards mid august i get super excited for summer to come to an end because then that mean it’s finally time! Lets go to theEX! TheEx runs from August 18th to September 4th. Wether your hitting up the food pavilion to eat your caloric in take for month in an hour , watching the live entertainment or holding on tight to your significant other while hanging from the sky, theEx is definitely a can’t miss during the summer. I was able to go a few times this summer and each experience was as good as the last. Mainly i go for food… oooohhh baby the food! So if you’re a huge foodie like me you know how big of a deal it is that you eat as much as physically possible while your there. Since i went a few times i got to munch on some pretty interesting stuff
I tried everything from deep friend gnocchi to Mexican style sloppy Joe’s. But the “Bad Boy” burger from Bubb’s Bad@ss Burgers Was out of this world and by far my favourite on the list. It consisted of a Jamaican patty as a bun, then a beef burger patty, breaded chicken burger patty, lettuce, tomato, fried onions, mayo and cheese. You would think a burger that big would have filled me to core, and you’re right it did but i couldn’t not have a deep friend mars bar. I think that one is pretty self explanatory. Want to start your summer 2017 food bucket list take a look at some of your options here.
Aside from the food, the rides, and all the failed attempts at winning games ( i wanted a stuffed unicorn so bad and could never win) the best part is enjoying it with whoever you go with.
I hope everyones long weekend was as eventual as mine, Stay warm!
