Figures (137 Avenue Road) is officially one of my favorite new restaurants in Toronto, and it’s about more than just the food, the style, or the very fun comic book theme. Figures is a great restaurant because they do all of those things so well, and they do it all with heart, and excellent attention to every detail.

Bullitt was an iconic classic film starring Steve McQueen and featuring an incredible co-star, the 1968 Ford Mustang fastback. Now, Ford is honouring that classic car, and the film, with the brand new Mustang Bullitt, and I had a chance to get behind the wheel and drive away (okay, not really) for a few minutes at the Canadian International Auto Show.
The force grows stronger in Toronto, not only with the upcoming release of the hotly anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi on the horizon, but also thanks to the arrival of a special pop-up that will tide fans of the blockbuster film franchise over quite nicely.
Giving Tuesday might be behind us, but Toronto based healthcare software company RL Solutions and SickKids Hospital have a great way to help people give back during the holidays while giving generous donors some sweet holiday treats thanks to the SickKids Milk & Cookies Truck.
