If you live in the Beach and are tired of your ‘hood getting taken over by scores of summer tourists, stay off the Boardwalk altogether and check out these neat, random things happening in the ‘hood.  Or if you’re one of those pesky Beach wannabes, hang around after sunbathing, and see what else the ‘hood has to offer.

  • Every Thursday from now till October 7, starting at 9:00 PM, visit red hot party spot CASTRO’S LOUNGE at 2116 QUEEN ST. E. to see Jerry Leger, a Toronto based folk/roots songwriter who has self released 3 acclaimed albums and toured Canada and the U.S.
  • Bikini Bootcamp – With small class sizes and a regimen tailored to women, Bikini Bootcamp is ideal for new recruits. Shaping up for the beach happens in pretty parks like Kew Gardens and others. The 8-week program (“8 weeks to fabulous!”) assists women through fitness goals from an initial one-on-one consultation and fit-test to a post-camp follow-up. Specialty bootcamps for couples, corporate groups, and men will be available at Toronto locations in the future.
  • Stay in and read about the Beach (getting angry is optional).  Recently, downtown Toronto Realtor Richard Silver tackled the Beach neighbourhood in an article where he simultaneously praises the Beach and denigrates it as snob-land.  Read, and comment on, the article here
