Woofstock 2018

Victor the pooch samples the best of Woofstock

Just like its namesake predecessor, participants at Woofstock in Toronto’s Woodbine Park need to pee freely. Good thing Woofstock is outside. Unlike Woodstock, though, participants aren’t fee loving hippies but fee spirited dogs–fur babies to many canine crazy pup parents heading to North America’s largest outdoor dog festival this weekend.

Rufus Teague BBQ sauces

Getting saucy with Rufus Teague and their BBQ fountain

BBQ season is actually Canada’s longest season. If you’re really a grill-lover, you can almost cook outside all year round, but the real glory days for BBQ sauce and smokers definitely runs from May to September, and now I’m ready to get cooking. This week, Rufus Teague hosted a night of BBQ and sampling at Barque on Roncesvalles in Toronto, and they’ve convinced me to try a few new things this BBQ season.
