It happened. Summer is Over. Fall has officially begun!
I dunno about y’all….but I had an excellent summer! Toronto is the greatest! And Summer in the city is just the best!
With all the many street festivals, buskers, concerts, dancing on the pier, movies in the park and ferry trips to the Toronto Island… there’s always tons of fun to be had.
Here is a quickie recap of some of the fun-in-the-sun events I attended, that I didn’t get a chance to blog about:
TVS PinUp Picnic
Toronto Vintage Society did another PinUp Picnic this year … armed with blankets and baskets we sectioned off a corner of Trinity Bellwoods to enjoy an afternoon of simple fun in overcast skies…

After picnicking … a few of us were ready to learn how to do The Stroll with Drea from Soda Pop Hop
Dirty Dancing Quote-a-long
The Bloor Cinema hosted a Quote-a-long movie screening of DIRTY DANCING.
Oh yes…. taking us back to the summer of 1963, via the summer of 1987. Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is resigned to spend her summer at a wholesome family resort in the Catskills, when she unwittingly discovers the wild dance parties the resort staff have after hours.
This quote-along screening was hosted by comedian Steph Tolev, in a karaoke-style where you were encouraged to yell back at the movie screen and boo Robbie-the-Jerk, woot Johnny-the-Dreamboat, and get up and dance like it’s the Time of Our Lives!!!!
Happy to report that EVERYONE knew exactly when to say, “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”
Toronto Vintage Society’s Tiki Lani Lanai
This was our 3rd Annual Tiki Party … and it was our best turnout ever!
Me among the crowned Tiki Queen of the evening…. and her wife. Aren’t they both just adorbz!
My outfit: I found this floral aqua romper (yup, its a onesie friends) from Forever21+; Hair flower from Fruits of Bali; Sandals from Coach
O.K. Blue Jays!
I’m not a big sports fan – sitting through 9-innings of baseball on the hottest day ever and paying for ridiculously over priced food and booze, isn’t my first choice of spending a sunny afternoon.
Buuuuuuut the Toronto Blue Jays have been killing it this season! And in true bandwagon-fan fashion… I wanted to be apart of the hype!!!
So, we got ourselves nose-bleed tickets to a PACKED Skydome game!
Plus, look at these cutie-pie tees I found us!!! $17 from Winners bebe! Aren’t we the cutest!??!
Clearly our matchy-matchy look helped them WIN the game that day. You’re welcome fellas! 😉
Turns out for a non-sports-fan, I made it to a game last year too. Click here for that.
Let’s Go To The Ex!
I haven’t been to The Ex since I was a teen. A few dancing friends went down on a Monday night to cash in on the $6 after 5pm deal…..
We tasted weird deep-fried foods … checked out livestock at the farm … rode some rides… lost money trying to win prizes…
AND got to dance the night away to BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY ….!!! We were “So Money” and we didn’t even know it 😉
Remember that movies Swingers, yup, you get it!
There it is … Farewell to a fabulous Summer!
I hope you enjoyed yours and filled it with lots of fun in the sun with friends, friends.
Thanks for reading! xo
