I know it is a bit late to chat about these two events, but hopefully if you are reading this and have time you might venture down to Old Town and give one or both a shot. First the wine event:
On Tuesday June 16th is the ‘sip & Savour Ontario’ event. I attended and blogged about this event two years ago but had to miss out last year due to a business trip. If you can find the time and $60 you will be blessed with an opportunity to try, taste and savour wines from most of the Ontario wineries as well as some delicious food from some brilliant chefs. You can visit this link to register and see below for a quick synopsis of the event.
Locally Yours. . . Closer than you think!
An evening dedicated to Ontario VQA Wines & Regional Cuisine
Ontario VQA Wines and local cuisine come together to satisfy your inner epicure while supporting local enterprise.
Award-winning VQA wines from more than 25 Ontario wineries will be paired with elegant and delectable offerings of regional cuisine inspired by local chefs.
With live culinary demonstrations featuring Savour Ontario Chefs, Ontario will be yours to sip & Savour.

7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
The Distillery Historic District, Fermenting Cellar
55 Mill Street, Toronto
The second event is not of food or wine, but of dog, dogs, and more canines. 2009 Woofstock happens this weekend (June 13th and 14th) and if you like, love or adore the four legged friends, then Front Street is where you need to be. East of Yonge and West of Jarvis you will find anything dog related you ever wished to see. Many unique vendors will be in attendance along with over 100,00 visitors and their canines. Big, small and fat you are guaranteed to see something that will please you. As well, like usual, the rescue organizations will be there with information on how to adopt or foster if you are so inclined. More information can be found here.
Have a great weekend.
