Feb 28 2022, 8:35 pm

Why wait to live it up until the weekend when there’s plenty going on in Toronto this week? Gather your buddies and head to a basketball game at Scotiabank Arena but if you prefer scones over hotdogs, there’s always afternoon tea at The Ritz Carlton.

If you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, there’s a virtual market for local businesses or you can check out a miniature museum where a 3D printer can print out a mini version of yourself.
