Bad Dog Theatre

875 Bloor St. W.

For over 30 years, the award-winning Bad Dog Theatre Company has specialized in the art of unscripted comedy and improvised performance in Toronto. Check out their theatre almost any night to see a show or participate in a class.


969 Bloor St. W

Solid Ethiopian food. Get the beef tibs or their reliable vegetarian platter which can usually feed two people. It's usually busy, so go down a few blocks to Lalibela if there's a wait. Both places will do you right. 

Check it out.


840 Bloor St. W

Shareable plates of southern-influenced food. You can start with a bourbon or a craft beer, before ordering ribs with a side of cornbread.
