Weekend Round-Up

New to the blog!

Each week I will now be featuring a weekend round-up. This will include anything and everything I ate & drank including recipes, places I visited, or events I went to.

This past weekend featured a productive weekend in the City, including the opening of the PanAm games!

Notable Beverages: 
After the bottom falling out of my favourite Stoneleigh Sav. Blanc all over my kitchen floor, I resorted to try a new one from my local (and closest) wine rack- 2013 Inniskillin Niagara Estate Series Late Autumn Riesling.


Notable Foods:
Big Smoke Burger has recently paired up with Grabb Mobile (two of my favourites), so I decided to give the app a try while settling a burger craving all at once.


Another notable eat of the weekend was Via Vai Pizzeria and Wine Bar, new to the neighbourhood located at Bay and College. A beautiful outdoor patio, the perfect spot for a glass of wine and great menu selection, with the perfect price point.


I was at a BBQ potluck on Sunday where I brought a fresh summer corn salad. Check out Budget Bytes roasted corn salad recipe here! I also added avocado to the salad to give it a more summer taste. Delicious!

Notable Events:
Besides the obvious PanAmdamondium, I did attempt to go down to Nathan Phillips Square to check out the free shows. There were SO many people around that it was a beautiful night for a walk home and rooftop balcony beverages.

Another notable event is on Saturday was 7/11’s birthday! I have 7/11 in my building and they reminded me that it was free slurpee day! What a treat!


Notable Shopping:

I am currently in the process of moving and learning that I have WAY too many clothes. I packed up bags and bag of clothes and headed out to one of my favourite and secret stores I discovered last year Plato’s Closet Oakville. Not only do they BUY clothing that you’re getting rid of, their shopping selection is huge!

That is this weekends round up, stay tuned to what I will be doing next weekend!
