Time once again for the City of Toronto’s annual cold-weather enticement to get people out to fine dining establishments, the Winterlicious Festival. Over 200 restaurants have signed up to offer lunch and dinner prix-fixe menus over the official two-week period (many of them continue the pricing for longer), and the City’s also arranged for a number of different culinary events as well. For a full listing of the restaurants participating, visit the City’s website.
Performer Jeni Walls has earned a rep as a musical chameleon, based on her one-woman show Liza Live! and her performances on tour imitating pop stars like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus. But aside from her weekly gig as host of musical theatre open mic Singular Sensation, Walls hasn’t performed as herself in a long while. That changes with Jeni Walls as Jeni Walls, a one-night-only cabaret where she’ll debut new material, backed up by talented friends like Chris Tsujiuchi, Matt Marcoccia, and Jamie Bird.
Punk rockers Pup were arguably one of Toronto’s breakout bands in 2013, on the strength of their spirited self-titled debut LP and their raucous and bloody debut video for Reservoir, embedded above. Their first hometown headlining gig of 2014 will feature opener support from fellow local outfits Grounders and Dilly Dally.
