Friday Night Live at the ROM
Every Friday the ROM opens its doors to give the adults of the city a chance to explore the wonders of art and history. It’s a great opportunity to get dressed up and enjoy tasty refreshments along with looking at dinosaur bones and exploring bat caves. There’s tapas, live music, dancing, what more could you want on a Friday night?
Tickets are $13 for students (19+)
First Thursday at the AGO
You’re looking for a little less history, a little more art, music, and dancing? On the first Thursday of every month, the AGO opens its doors to just that. It’s a great chance to socialize, enjoy some munchies, and brush up on your art history knowledge (or not).
Advance tickets are $13 (19+)
Maybe after attending First Thursday AGO, you have become inspired to create your own masterpieces. Or you believe that you’re actually a better artist than all of the ones you’ve come across. Either way, you want to flex your artistic chops and the perfect place to do so would be at a Paint Nite event. At the end of the night, you will be able to take home your work of art.
Per Paint Nite event $45
Giving birth to a long list of comic geniuses such as Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey as well as a long list of awards, Second City is the place to go to strengthen your abs just in time for the summer weather. Not into comedy shows? Maybe you would rather make people laugh instead, or hone your presentation skills? Second City will have the perfect improv program for you!
Ed Mirvish Theatre
It’s time to get fancy in the heart of downtown and conveniently in front of the Eaton’s Centre. Get dressed up, sit in some comfy seats, and enjoy people performing live in front of you. Each show is unique. As I am writing this, Matilda the musical is playing at the Ed Mirvish Theatre. Remember musicals? You watched musicals about high schools and in Disney when you were young. Well it’s time to relive that, but as a young adult.
I’m sure you know what a music festival is, so I probably don’t have to coerce you into attending one. Instead I’ll just provide a list of those happening in Toronto.
