November 8-10: what to do/see/eat/drink this weekend

It is Friday! Another week come and gone. Here's some ideas if you haven't already made plans for the weekend!

Do: Here I go with the Gladstone again but this weekend they're hosting the Toronto Indie Arts Market. This event will have arts, crafts, fashion, food and more made my local Torontonians. It's Saturday from 10:30am-4:30pm and admission is $5. Part of the proceeds go to Not Far From The Tree, a non-profit supporting urban farmers and the community. Great place to start your Christmas shopping.

See: The Buffer Festival is coming to Toronto. This festival running all weekend takes place at various theatres in the entertainment district. This unique film festival features the work of famous YouTubers. YouTube has changed the way the world sees videos and this festival is the great way to showcase this medium. There will be two types of shows, one based on a genre and one based on famous YouTubers. Definitely a fun festival to check out.

Eat: The Drake Hotel brought back its LobsterFest Sundays in October due to demand. For $36.95 you get a maritime lobster, sides, pint of Mill St and dessert, the sides alone sound mouth waters. Be sure to give them a call to reserve your spot.

Drink: This Saturday is #BeerHikeTO, a pub crawl with a 'hike'. You can register on online, they are asking for a minimum donation $20 and all proceeds with go to Camp Oochigeas. The event will begin at 4pm at the Cloak and Dagger. The crawl will visit six pubs and finish at C'est What. The event is opening anyone willing to pub crawl for a cause. And as we know, I love an event with a good cause attached.
