romeo-juliet-canadian-stage-company Every year Canstage puts on a fabulous evening of entertainment with Dream in High Park. This year it's Romeo and Juliet and that doesn't mean it's only for couples; everyone is welcome and it's a great way to spend a night with friends, family or alone. You pack a picnic, sneak in a little bit of wine, perch on the viewing ledges, and watch the excitment build as the stage gets its final touches and the sun sets. When the production begins you are treated to a great night of entertainment in a totally unique setting. If you haven't been to Dream In High Park time is running out! Make sure you check it out before September 5th. Shows are Tuesday to Sunday and it starts at 8pm, with gates opening at 6pm. There's a minimum donation of $20, which is a steal, and of course if you are a big fan of supporting the arts they always welcome additional donations. Here are directions on how to get there If you liked this post make sure you share it with friends on facebook, twitter or email this link.

Outdoor Entertainment

Earlier in the summer I felt like I wasn’t having a summer. The weather didn’t help, but mostly it was because I spent most of my time in my office, with air conditioning and cubicle dividers, and nothing summery! Not one to rest on my laurels, I decided to seek outdoor activities that would be fun, and somehow convinced my friend to join me. I found an outdoor exercise class in this lovely local park in the evenings – it was just what I was looking for. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve started and I can see some changes in my physique, but that’s only part of the fun. There is the ride to class and all the chit chat along the way with my friend, the lovely clean smelling outdoor air, the joy of releasing work tension while doing push ups outside…and of course the laughs we give all the passer-byers who stop and watch twenty girls in tight outfits doing lunges and squats in a park. Sometimes they look confused, sometimes they smirk, and sometimes they stop, sit down and open a can of beer. Who said you need a tv for this kind of fun?
