Last Days of Summer

Scorching heatwave again.  No complaints here.  This upcoming weekend heralds the last long weekend.  Teardrop tsunami.

Are you heading up North for a final hurrah, laying in a floatie by the dock?  Are you going to stay in the quiet city and read a book under the shade of an old Maple tree?  Are you going to the EX to eat strawbery funnel cake followed by a spin on the Polar Bear Express?  Maybe take in an outdoor movie on a rooftop or a friend’s backyard BBQ?  Whatever your poison, just make relaxation a number #1 priority.

  • Double Dose of Joseph Gordon-Levitt – Why not do a JGL double feature?  10 Things I Hate About You paired with 500 Days of Summer.  Zoey Deschanel’s A-line dresses will get you thinking about integrating 1950’s style into your Fall wardrobe.

I realize I wax poetic about JGL, but c'mon, so cute! Loving Zoey's peacock print sundress and top chignon.

  • Bikini Bonanza – I don’t wear my bikinis as much in summer as I do on vacation.  The irony.  But if you are going somewhere worth breaking out your itsy-bitsy, why not try to squeeze as much ROC as you can.  Also, end of summer sales are great for stocking up, especially on mix and match styles.  In the winter, nice selections of bathing suits are impossible to find (Murphy’s law).

  • Drinkies On The Patio – When it’s summer, we take for granted how lovely it is to sit outdoors while sipping on a cocktail or martini.  On a weekday, try the Cafe or the Sky Yard at the Drake Hotel (1150 Queen St. West).  The enclosed sidewalk patio at Kalendar (546 College St.) has an old-world French charm and good share plates.  Baked Brie anyone? 

A long-standing favourite among hipsters, The Sky Yard at The Drake.
