Concert Review: Barenaked Ladies

Hot On The Street Barenaked Ladies December 2017 (3)

5 years ago, I went to see Barenaked Ladies perform in London and I commented that it wasn’t as good as the concert I remembered in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre.

Walking into Massey Hall last night, I wondered if my claim that it’s better to see them in Toronto would be true and Saturday’s show proved that I was right. I loved everything about it, except for the encore because they played 2 covers I didn’t enjoy.

Jenny Slate Came To Toronto And Liked My Tweet!

Jenny Slate Just for Laughs

I’ve attended a couple great shows at Just for Laughs in Toronto, featuring Lena Dunham and Miranda Sings. I’m a huge fan of Jenny Slate’s acting chops, so I was thrilled to see she was part of the lineup for this year’s festival.

Yesterday I went to see a conversation with Jenny Slate at the TIFF Bell Lightbox and it was amazing. I knew I was going to like the event as soon as she said, “film sets are a lot like camp.”

Concert Review: Coldplay

Hot On The Street Coldplay Toronto 2017 Chris Martin Smile

The last time Coldplay came to Toronto, I said I felt like I was in paradise. I don’t want to exaggerate, but the band came close to recreating that experience this week at the Rogers Centre.

First of all, it really comes down to where you sit. The Rogers Centre is huge, so it’s worth the extra investment in really good seats. This time I sat in the 200 level on the side of the stage and it was great. If it’s a pop concert with lots of detailed set design and costumes, it would be even more important. 

My first Coldplay concert was also special because I had never seen an artist use lit up wristbands to connect the audience. Their team deserves a lot of credit for pioneering this. This time, they took their lighting to the next level by syncing their show with the CN Tower’s lighting system! That was truly magical and unique.

Häagen-Dazs Pops Up In Toronto

 

Haagen Dazs Toronto - Prince ice cream

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Lately, I’ve preferred milkshakes, but I’ll never say no to an ice cream run. The best ice cream I’ve had recently was a royal treat with my last name on it. I recommend heading over to the new Häagen-Dazs pop-up shop to order your own custom ice cream bar.

Bär Häagen-Dazs sells many cold items, but how could you say no to a snack that literally has your name written all over it? Once you’re inside, you can choose your flavour. Then a talented staff member will decorate and customize an ice cream bar just for you. After she put my name with a heart on top, I requested the crown. The final product looked amazing!
