Nothing like a long weekend to beat the February blahs! And what a better thing to celebrate than family? We’ll be the first to admit that while sometimes the fam can be your biggest headache, they are also your greatest allies. For all of you who don’t have the opportunity to spend the day with yours today, we invite you to live vicariously through these photos of famous broods.
Happy Family Day!
As this holiday is only four years old, you may not have any long-standing family traditions to honour. Thankfully, we’re here with the perfect itinerary for your day. (Shameless plug: these are all our clients, but nonetheless super rad activities).
Piola’s Make-Your-Own-Pizza event
|Inspire your little one with this pizza made by Piola’s chefs!
From 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., stop by Piola (1165 Queen St. W.) where kids under 14 can create their own pizzas with the restaurant’s expert pizza makers. Kids learn how to stretch out the dough and then top the pizza with the toppings of their choice. $10, includes a choice of pop or juice (limit one per child). Call here for reservations 416.477.4652.
The Monkey Bunch at the Drake Hotel
After filling up on pizza, pop across the street to catch the The Monkey Bunch in the Drake Underground. A rock n’ roll band with a social conscience, The Monkey Bunch’s thoughtful songwriting appeals to both “talls” and “smalls”. Only $8 for a single ticket, $28 for a family pack, the concert starts at 3 p.m. sharp (doors at 2:30 p.m.). For more information, call 416.531.5042.
Looking for a little magic to top off your holiday? Then Potted Potter is just the ticket! This hilarious, two-man play condenses JK Rowling’s epic series into 70 madcap minutes. With two performances (2 p.m. and 5 p.m.) on Family Day, this play will entertain all the wizards and witches, Muggles and Squibs in your family. Read the Toronto Star‘s 4 star review here.
