Is an item of clothing you own in desperate need of repair? Are you unable to fix it, because you have no idea how do so yourself? This Clothing Repairathon, then, might just be the best thing you’ll hear about all day. You can have two to three articles of clothing repaired by volunteers.
Tired of shopping for the same old clothes? The Toronto Vintage Clothing Show will give you the opportunity to go back in time and grab some rare and retro items you likely won’t find anywhere else.

Brainsgiving 2013 is a comedy fundraiser, benefiting Toronto Rehab’s Neuro Rehabilitation Program. The event was inspired by founder Amanda Terfloth’s discovery of (and subsequent recovery from) a brain tumour. Now in its sixth year, the event features a wide variety of comedians, including Torontoist favourite Pat Thornton, Sara Hennessey, Fraser Young, and Ladystache. Make sure you buy your tickets in advance, as they’ll probably get snapped up pretty quickly.
Searching for a new musical party in Toronto? VOX is a new indie/electro-pop event that will be taking place on the last Saturday of every month.

This week’s inaugural event will feature Parallels (who start at 11 p.m.).
