The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

100 mile newsletter updates!

In an effort to find out even more about what's going on in the city I've been signing up for newsletters from some of our vendors and other cool organizations that just haven't had time to join us!! It's amazing what is going on out there. Here's a few gems!

This is coming up tomorrow evening, sounds pretty cool!

Want something a little different this Easter? Why not try a mookie from JinjaNinja?

Did you hear that Delight opened a second location? Now not only are they located in the Junction at 3040 Dundas Street West,  but they have a new store at 805 Queen Street West, between Bathurst and Trinity Bellwoods Park. It's going to be a beautiful week, you should check out the new location and then take a walk around the park! Sounds like fun to me!

Need a nice hostess gift for this weekend? Alli's Originals has these great new beaded canape knives. One of those with a local cheese, you've got a great local hostess gift!

Okay this one isn't from a newsletter but how can I talk about  Easter without mentioning these guys?! Looking for a sophisticated, yet chocolately way to say 'Happy Easter'? You need to take a trip down to the Distillery District to SOMA chocolatemakers  They have the Racally Rabbit available in Dark Peruvian  Chocolate 64%, Costa Rican Mild Chocolate 32%, Creamy White Chocolate and Sugar-free Dark Chocolate. OMG, I'm salivating!
They are also offering beautiful handmade chocolate eggs! They are artisan chocolate eggs spray-painted with chocolate nestled on a solid chocolate nest. They also promise that a new, tasty, not yet released SOMA surprise hides within each egg!!! 

Now this sounds like a whole lotta fun!

This is being offered by CaveSprings and Inn on the Twenty.

On Saturday April 17th, join our Winemaker, Angelo Pavan, for an enjoyable and unique weekend as he presents our new vintage wines.

Saturday evening you will be treated to our New Release Tasting complete with hors d'oeuvres, followed by a five-course Winemaker's Dinner served in our intimate Vintners Cellar. Our Executive Chef, Kevin Maniaci, has carefully crafted this menu to pair with each wine and is sure to delight your senses.

Following breakfast on Sunday morning, Angelo will lead you in a private tutored tasting of our very best wines to date and give you the opportunity to purchase back vintage wines from our cellar.

Your choice - take part in the weekend experience or attend the Winemaker's Dinner only

Overnight accommodations package from $228 per person

Release tasting and dinner including wines, $131 per person

*prices do not include applicable taxes and gratuities.

This one I did find from a newsletter, the website doesn't make any mention of it. I think your best bet is to email them at  If you go, you have to do me two favors, well you don't have to, but who knows what will happen to you if you don't!!! 
Tell them how ya' heard about it, and then let us know what you thought about the event. It really seems the least you can do!

Susan and I are off to the One of A Kind Show on Wednesday! Can't wait!
