Best of Toronto: The Best Rooftop Patios in Toronto   

    



The best rooftop patios in Toronto are the platinum seats of the city's patio scene. And just like at the Leafs game, most of them, too, offer seat-side service. While few things can rival the pleasure of a pint on the patio, a pint on an elevated patio is explicably so much better.

Event: TIFF unveils Canadian film lineup      

    



TIFF has unveiled its "eh" list of Canadian films for its annual September event, featuring directors familiar and new.

Sarah Polley, Xavier Dolan, Bernard Émond, Bruce Sweeney, Sudz Sutherland, Manon Briand and Rob Stewart are among the returning directors. Many are bringing world-premiering films and some are back at TIFF after lengthy absences.

Toronto Life Series: Mimico, because it's one lakefront revitalization that's on schedule    

  

 

Toronto Life has a great series focusing on 10 up and coming Toronto neighbourhoods.

Many west-end neighbourhoods close to the core have their waterfront views blocked by the Gardiner. Mimico, on the other hand, is south of the highway and right on the lake. Mansions make up much of the lakeside real estate, but the area has abundant bungalows and two-storey homes with generous yards. For first-time buyers and empty nesters, condos (such as Eleven Superior and Beyond the Sea) are moving into the eastern edge of the pocket.

Testimonial: Mary's Story      

  


My preferred neighbourhoods were anything within a 2-3 mile radius of Eglinton and Avenue Road.  A key need was for a terrace as opposed to a balcony.  A view was mandatory!

The condo I ultimately found suited me completely - except that it was not within my 'neighbourhood' criteria.  The decision to move down to the lake was a process of visiting, imagining, revisiting, re-imagining.  Every time I met Shawn somewhere, the drive south seemed more fraught.  But every time I arrived at the lake I was more drawn to the neighbourhood.
