It’s been a long while since Torontonians have seen a Lederhosen Lucil show. Krista Muir hung up the blonde wig in 2007 to record and perform under her own name, as opposed to the effervescent Bavarian pop princess personality. But Lucil is back with a new show, Guten Tag Gemini; after the set, the Pet […]
“We hope to show that it is ability and not disability that really counts,” observed Dr. Robert Jackson during the early preparations for the 1976 Olympiad for the Physically Disabled. “Once an employer realizes an athlete can race a mile in a wheelchair in just over six minutes he is more willing to accept that […]

BY: Unknown LOCATION: Kensington Market PHOTO BY: Chris Orbz FIELD NOTES: We’re kind of amazed by this. At first glance, it looks like a regular—if particularly well-rendered—piece. But a closer inspection reveals that these letters are actually three-dimensional. Someone took the time to make a tag sculpture! Nicely done! Once a week, Vandalist features some […]
Another weekend, another subway closure. The TTC will once again be upgrading its 60-year-old signal system, meaning that the subway will be shut down from Bloor to Union to St. George stations (the “U”).

On top of patio dates, intramural games, enjoying novels in the park, and all of your friends’ weddings, you’ve also got many of Toronto’s beloved arts festivals begging for your precious summer hours.
