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.
You'd better hurry, or you'll be late, for a very important date. The Alice on Queen pop-up event has arrived in Toronto for one week, and celebrates the May 27th release of Alice Through The Looking Glass with the Mad Hatter's Tea Party table brought to life courtesy of YouTube's How To Cake It star Yolanda Gampp and her team.
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.

My favorite time of year is clearly here. Yes, it's barbecue season, and this year I've been convinced that wine--and specifically Carnivor Cabernet--may not be a bad way to go in place of some of the more traditional summer patio drinks.
The season finale of Doctor Who, starring Peter Capaldi as The Doctor and Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, is just days away, and that made me realize I never shared something spectacular from earlier this year: my Doctor Who-themed birthday cookies.
Canadian Club knows how to host a whisky event, and of course, that shouldn't surprise anyone. They have an award-winning brand centre in Walkerville, and they have been hosting events like this for a while, but after a tasting for their new Chairman's Select 100% Rye earlier this month, I thought it was worth mentioning.
World Food Day (WFD)--October 16--was founded by the United Nations’ (UN) in 1945 to increase awareness of world hunger and poverty and to inspire solutions for change. Approximately 805 million people in the world, or 1 in 9 people, suffer from hunger every year, and hunger and malnutrition are linked to one third of all child deaths around the world. Five children die every minute because they are not eating enough healthy food.
Looking to do something a little different this October for Thanksgiving? Canadians can put the turkey behind them this year and take advantage of a deal from the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, which is showing a little love for Canucks with discounts and special offerings throughout the month, which they're dubbing Canadian Appreciation Month.
The Canadian National Exhibition is all about food trucks this weekend, as some of the city's best mobile purveyors or great eats come together in one place from August 22 to 24, just beyond the Princes' Gates on the Exhibition grounds.
