A hidden Italian gem in Yonge & Eg

Amore Trattoria

Located just north of Yonge and Eglinton a short walk past Montgomery and Boardway Avenue, this unique Italian serves up quality food and atmosphere like none other.

With its charming decor, friendly staff and captivating music, it feels like you are somewhere else. I came across this romantic Italian two years ago and have been going back ever since. Great music and lighting really sets the scene for a romantic night. It’s a good choice if you are looking for that somewhere special to go with your someone special.

I like wine 

No need for starter here, they give you a cute little bread basket with oils, on the house. The staff here are very friendly and attentive A+ from me. They also have a beautiful open fire stone oven so you can watch your pizza cook.

Pure gold. 

I’m about to make a BOLD statement here ; they serve the best spaghetti carbonara I have ever tasted in Toronto. I don’t know how they make it but it is amazing. The portion you see in the picture is a dinner size and more than enough to fill any famished individual.

Who loves a good cheesecake?

I am not a dessert person, I can safely say I prefer the bread basket, but this cheesecake was delicious, thanks to my date for sharing with me….

The menu is reasonable priced and what you would expect to pay for good quality food and service. I have heard their brunch is one of the best in town, it is on my list for the next trip to Amore!

Serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Tunnel of lights……..

Always on the look out for new things to do, I saw a post on a Toronto Blog talking about about a Tunnel of Lights just 2 hours outside of Toronto. So in the car we hopped and headed to Bingemans in Kitchener to see their event called the Gift of Lights .

light-1

The event will run from November 18, 2016 to January 1, 2017. It is the largest drive-thru holiday light display in Southwestern Ontario and it features a gorgeous light tunnel to several lit-up holiday statues. The entire path runs 2 km long. Word to the wise, the tunnel is not 2Km long, but there is lights along the entire route.

For more information, check out their website here

I probably wouldn’t encourage the two hour drive, but the money does got to charity and it’s certainly something different!

If you do head down, enjoy the lights….S xx

What happens when you bring a dinosaur to the ROM?!

If you haven’t been yet, GO!

A gang of us headed down on a freezing Friday  night 2014, and I’m not going to lie I was a little skeptical…..A night out in a museum, hardly sounds thrilling, I thought it would be all roped off and stuffy suited types, with people telling us off for having too much craic! Sticking with the theme of the night, we had our very own gold T-Rex in tow and he was a hit.

This is the city’s most unique social destination featuring eclectic eats, drinks, DJs, dancing, live music and unexpected experiences.

Having missed out last year, we’ll be back this year.

The themes for FNL 2016;

Nov 11: Tribute
Nov 18: Wild
Nov 25: Afterglow

You can sign up for early bird tickets here, and if you don’t manage to get them you should turn up super early, and be prepared to queue.

FNL returns again in the summer, so if you miss out you will get another chance.

You’ll queue again for the cloak room and again for ROM bucks. Is it worth all the queueing…..Yes! The bar moves quick, thanks to the ROM bucks. The place is so huge it won’t feel jam packed, and its a unique way to see the ROM.
