Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Did you know that the Art Gallery of Ontario has a Tumblr? It is called Art of the Day and it features, shockingly, a new piece of art every day. Also, it is pretty.
- The Canadian National Exhibition opens tomorrow, and we all know what that means: midway rides, tchotchkes, and deep-fried butter. Yes, now in addition to the standard Ex fare of cotton candy and Tiny Tom’s Donuts, you can get melon ball-sized scoops of butter, coated in funnel cake batter and drizzled with your choice of toppings, all courtesy of Vicky Skinkle’s Sweet Treats.
- Urban forestry expert Todd Irvine has a lovely arboreal history of Queen’s Park over at Eye, which should make your next ramble through there all that much more fun.
- And if you missed it, yesterday we debuted a new audio and photo feature called Origins, which will tell the stories of some of Toronto’s recent and not-so-recent immigrants.
