Heritage Toronto Plaque Unveiling and Skate Event at Maple Leaf Gardens

  • Mattamy Athletic Centre (50 Carlton Street)
  • 2 p.m.

Though Maple Leaf Gardens has been transformed into a mega-sized grocery store and Ryerson athletic centre, the memories live on. Heritage Toronto will be unveiling a new historical plaque to commemorate the storied venue. Afterward, there will be a free skate at Ryerson’s ice rink on the top floor. Make sure you register in advance.

Winners and Losers is a play by Marcus Youssef and James Long based on a game of the same name the two theatre artists sometimes play. They pick a person, place, or thing, and debate whether it’s a “winner” or a “loser.” But it probably wouldn’t be fair to pick their director (and Crow’s Theatre artistic director) Chris Abraham as a topic, particularly since he was recently declared the winner of the Siminovitch Prize, Canadian theatre’s most prestigious (not to mention lucrative) honour.
