Of kids, kindness and crime fiction
It’s always a rewarding experience to highlight some of the amazing people that call Toronto home. And when we focus on young people, like we did this month, it’s even better.
This is our first Top 20 Under 20 edition, and the only challenge with our story was in limiting our list. As you’ll see in this issue, there are so many impressive youngsters soon ready to make significant contributions in this city and around the world.
Our resident fashion columnist, Jeanne Beker, kicks off our life section with a look at the city’s most fashionable mini-bags — an ideal holiday gift, fellas, so pay attention.
In addition, we offer the latest from our columnists Rebecca Eckler, who explores the eye-opening world of random acts of kindness, and Jessica O’Reilly on how to spice up the holiday season with that special someone.
Grant van Gameren gets into the festive spirit in our Taste Test column where he teams up with Delica Kitchen owner Devin O’Connell to test the best gingerbread cookies in town. And Joanne Kates reviews two hot new restaurants, Buca Osteria and Nodo. Caroline Aksich checks out four unique and delicious takes on hot chocolate.
In the arts, we profile an incredibly talented and powerful new musician named Lowell. Mark Breslin checks out a new book from Andrew Dice Clay and recounts his own brush with the controversial comic.
We also chat with crime fiction author extraordinaire Peter Robinson and offer up a few gift suggestions for the music and book lovers in your life
To close another year at Post City Magazines, we feature our annual Naughty and Nice list where we recognize a few of the fine local residents that have made us proud in 2014 and a few others that we’d rather forget.
Happy holidays to all of our incredible readers. See you next year.
