St. Clair un­corks for the first time

Midtown Post - - Neighbourhood News -

The per­fect, flashy but in­ex­pen­sive Fa­ther’s Day gift will be rolling onto Bloor Street June 15, as the fifth an­nual Yorkville Ex­otic Car Show takes over what’s known as the Mink Mile. Be­ing held from noon un­til 5 p.m., the free event takes place on Bloor be­tween Av­enue Road and Bay Street. The event is a fundraiser for Prostate Cancer Canada and will fea­ture more than 120 clas­sic and ex­otic cars, from Fer­raris to Porsches.

In April, provin­cial tran­sit agency Metrolinx re­vealed to the pub­lic that they were con­sid­er­ing the clo­sure of the North­bound Allen Ex­press­way in or­der to ease con­ges­tion on Eglin­ton Av­enue dur­ing the con­struc­tion of the Eglin­ton Cross Town Light Rail Tran­sit (LRT) line. The pro­posal, which proved un­pop­u­lar among res­i­dents and busi­ness own­ers, was taken off the ta­ble, as con­firmed in a me­dia re­lease is­sued by the agency.

North Toronto and Vil­lage res­i­dents will have a chance to at­tend the North Toronto Sum­mer Postage Stamp Show on June 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the York­min­ster Park Bap­tist Church. Ad­mis­sion to the show is free.

Hill­crest Vil­lage BIA is in­tro­duc­ing the firstever St. Clair Un­corked; a one-day wine event for lo­cal businesses to dis­cover and share wines of the world, in­clud­ing On­tario’s best. The June 28 event is meant to help the street be­come the des­ti­na­tion of choice for shop­pers and din­ers by cre­at­ing mem­o­rable wine-tast­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. Ex­pert som­me­lier Zoltan Sz­abo, orig­i­nally from Hun­gary, will be on hand to work with busi­ness own­ers on cre­at­ing mem­o­rable wine-tast­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.
