Top 5 things to do in Toronto this week [September 15 - 21st]

Let's get right into it. Here are the five events I'm most excited for this week:

COMEDY: JFL 42 

It might not hold as much weight as the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, but JFL 42 is quickly building steam as the comedy event of the year here in Toronto. This year's headliners include Lena Dunham, Seth Meyers, Nick Offerman, Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Joe Rogan. The 42 other acts are just as strong. Definitely the best way to spend your week. 

Where: Various venues across the city

When:  September 18th - 27th

MUSIC: The Black Keys

While the rest of the city is sleeping, everyone at this show is going to be having their ears rocked off. There is still time to get tickets if you hurry! There is never a good excuse to miss these guys do their thing live.  
 
Where: Air Canada Centre

When: September 16th, 8pm

FOOD & DRINK: Toronto Beer Week 

Toronto's love affair with craft beer continues all week long. Get your fix around the city during the 5th annual celebration of our love of a good brew. Pub Crawls, Brewmaster Dinners, Scavenger Hunts and more are all part of the fun taking place at your local bars this week.
