INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

A Secret place to discover

Hi everyone! How is your Friday going? Maybe, thinking in the weekend? Probably yes.

Today I want to tell you about one awesome place that Mercedes and I discovered yesterday. We were looking for a place to eat and suddenly we saw a little hidden place between two supermarkets: London Drugs and Nesters Market (Abbott St with Hastings St).

It’s a little square with picnic tables to eat and take a rest, and a basketball zone. Very lighting and comfortable. Have a look at the pictures and judge by yourselves!

Vancouver has a large amount of hidden places, but you are lucky, we are here to discover them for you.

Free Toronto Event!

FREE, FREE, FREE! You heard me! For those of you in Ontario’s capital, don’t miss out on the city’s Doors Open Toronto event taking place May 29 and 30, 2010. One weekend, once a year, 150 bulidings of architectural historic, cultural and social significance open their doors to the public for a city-wide celebration.

The program allows visitors free access to properties that are either not usually open to the public, or would normally charge an entrance fee. Many locations have organized guided tours, displays and activities to enrich the visitor experience.

Participating buildings include heritage landmarks, modern structures, hidden gems, green roofs, places of worship, halls of learning, boardrooms, bedrooms, breweries, lighthouses, mansions, museums, theatres, national historic sites, centres of rail travel, cemeteries, factories, banking halls, architects’ offices and more.

Doors Open Toronto invites you to get to know the city, whether you’ve lived in Toronto all your life or you’re visiting for the first time. See Toronto like you’ve never seen it before!

This event is free, so I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to go!

Click here for a list of the participating structures, or get your Doors Open Toronto program guide in the Thursday, May 27 issue of the Toronto Star.

Have fun and let us know on Facebook what you thought of the event!
