Weekend road trips are the best kind of adventure, and on Saturday I had a fun trip out of town, right here in Ontario's glorious back yard thanks to Ford and the 2017 Escape. The real adventure might just be that I had no idea where Ford was going to send me though right up until I left my door, but I knew I was in for something special with their #EscapeAndDiscover weekend.
Over the weekend, Ford took a few writers and photographers out of Toronto to #EscapeAndDiscover parts of Ontario, while getting a chance to check out the new 2017 Ford Escape, Titanium Edition, and what it had to offer. My team--Team Green--was whisked away to Sarnia where we picked up the Escape and drove on to Owen Sound. Read the full story, and scroll down to check out the gallery from each part of the trip.
The Toronto Blue Jays will celebrate their 40th season home opener from Friday, April 8 to Sunday April 10, as they take on the Boston Red Sox, and the InterContinental Toronto Centre is inviting fans far and wide to come down and celebrate with them and their 2016 Home Opener Package.
The first ever Quinte Craft beer festival was a big hit, drawing hundreds to Belleville's Empire Square to sample local brews, wines, and food this past weekend. In fact, the event was such a big hit that a second festival is already in the works for later this year.
The trip was a long one for the four travellers, but it came with numerous rewards, including claiming the title of winning the Ultimate Canadian Dream Job. After travelling 17,000 kilometres for five months across the Trans Canada Trail, Woods Canada's four explorers--Melba Seto & Adam Kochanek and Magee Walker & Cedric Blanchette--made it back to Toronto late last month after an incredible adventure.
During the Toronto International Film Festival I talked to writer and director Robert Budreau about his film Born to be Blue, which stars Ethan Hawke as Blues legend Chet Baker. The film received numerous glowing reviews from its TIFF 2015 debut, and IFC Films has picked up the U.S. rights for a future release.
John Hodgman: the man, the myth, the legend. You may know him as Judge John Hodgman, as an author, a stand-up comedian, or perhaps as that guy who showed up a lot on The Daily Show. However you've connected with him in the past, his new show, Vacationland, is taking him on the road to talk about his home, Massachusetts, which he's dubbed "the birthplace of rage", not to mention his "exile" to Maine, and other sundry topics.
