It’s the best time of year in Ontario. Fall colours in full effect, temps are crisp, and days are bright.

Get out and celebrate the season already. Here are 3 cool ways.


Bundle the kids and run to tonight’s Drop-in Dinner at The Depanneur

The place where “interesting food things happen.” This cozy corner storefront supper club in the west end is open to all, and is home to lively events, food workshops and a bustling community kitchen. Best of all, they host weekly family-style dinner gatherings with a rotating selection of chefs. Tonight’s meal is Malaysian Chicken Curry by Grace Chow (vegetarian version available!) Drop in, eat, laugh, leave happy. And full.
