It’s the first weekend of Fall! We’re trying something new here at RU Student Life – our events team has put together a list of things happening this weekend worth checking out. Let us know what you think
At the Far Edge of Words
Friday, September 7, 7pm
Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art 952 Queen St W
A multimedia installation series by Canadian artist Jamelie Hassan. Exploring issues of identity and culture, experience this extraordinary art exhibit.
Fresh Fest Event at Ontario Food Terminal
Saturday, September 22, 11am-3pm
Ontario Food Terminal
165 The Queensway
The Ontario Food Terminal, normally only available to restaurants and food distributors, is opening up to the public in support of FoodShare. Fresh food vendors, create-your-own-salad, and food samples will be available for the low, low price of $5. All proceeds go to FoodShare, a program designed to facilitate and promote healthy food behaviour in Toronto.
Toronto Beer Week
Various Participating Locations across Toronto
Beer Week celebrates Toronto’s craft beer movement through its pubs, breweries, and beers. Beer Week passports are available at participating restaraunts, which can be found on their website: http://torontobeerweek.com/calendar/. Take the “Beer makes history better” tour, outside of the Hockey Hall of Fame, and sample the Quebec Draft Feature at The Rhino through this event!
Sound Academy, Toronto
The Killers are back on tour, finally, after four long years since their last release. Battle Born is the groups fourth album, and if you haven’t checked it out yet you most certainly should. This weekend they’re taking over the sound academy, and there are straggler tickets left available, so hurry!
UFC 152: Benavidez vs. Johnson
Air Canada Centre, Mattemy Athletic Centre
The ACC is hosting the latest UFS face-off between 125-pound fighters this Saturday. A ticket ain’t cheap, but available. If you aren’t up for spending the necessary moolah to actually see the fight, then come to the Mattemy Athletic Centre this Friday at 3:10, for the UFC weigh in. UFC superstars, such as Jon “Bones” Jones, are going to be there, and you can ask them questions!
