What better way to start the week than at Lee’s Palace to rock with Nick Jonas? Make those who don’t go “Jealous” that they missed it.


Any movie whose central character is a doll is, well, scary. Annabelle is no exception. What can we say? If you don’t think such movies are horror-ble, then this will probably “scurr” you silly.

The cast of this next film is “eye-brow raising,” but not in a bad way – more of a curious way. Ben Affleck, Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry star in Gone Girl about a wife (Rosamund Pike) who goes missing from a seemingly blissful marriage. As the movie progresses, the “suspect” becomes none other than her loving hubby (Affleck).

Humanitarian Carrie Davis (portrayed by Reese Witherspoon) was introduced to us at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this year. The Good Lie premiered in theatres on Friday. If you’re in the mood for a flick that will tug at those heartstrings in many different directions, then this might be your movie of choice for the night.


Have you seen the Book of Mormon? Apparently you need to – lover of theatre or not. This Tony Award winning musical has been described as “vulgar and hilarious.” Sound balanced enough for you to book your seat at the Princess of Wales Theatre?

Wednesday is also open mic night. This week check out The Hole in The Wall (for a Junction Jam), Good Neighbours Open Mic at The Dominion or head to Dundas east for an Imperial Comedy Show at Imperial Pub.


Enjoy thirsty Thursday at one of the most inventive bars in the city (in fact it was ranked in the “top 7 of the world” – Food & Wine Magazine), Bar Chef. Displayed on and behind the bar, the endless cocktails are served with an extravagant presentation by the ever-skilled bartenders. Bottoms up!

It is also Citizen’s Thursday at Cube Nightclub and Mr. Peters hits the decks. Mr. Russell Peters that is. Turns out there’s more to him than FUNNY.


Literally kick off the long weekend on the football field. The Argos beat the Eskimos last week. Can they kick their way to another victory on Saturday? Find out at the Rogers Centre when they take on the Tiger Cats.

Then hit The Pay Attention Tour at Tattoo on Queen Street. Justin Scott, better known as BIG KRIT is in town, so you better, you know, Pay Attention.


Thanksgiving may be on Monday, but we all know that different households dig in to their big birds throughout the weekend. After your first bird, we suggest dancing it off electronically. The world of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) has taken over the world, so why not support EDM Canada? Every week they bring you the latest and hottest in EDM.  Join John Digweed at the Guvernment on Saturday.


Before you head on to mum and dad’s for your gobble gobble dinner, try Aunties and Uncles at Bathurst and College for a delicious brunch. Anything from a breakfast pocket (filled with eggs, peameal bacon ad caramelized onions) to the Croque Monsieur (grilled black forest ham, Swiss cheese and Dijon mustard on challah); simple, yet tasty.

Catch those Damn Kids at CODA on Sunday. Actually, Damn Kids is just one person, Stéphane Deschênes, a Canadian electronic music producer and performer. Nothing better than backing up our local geniuses
