Exhibit: The Ruins of Pompeii at the ROM in Toronto!

ROM's Pompeii: In the Shadow of the Volcano Exhibition Review

I finally got the chance to visit ROM's Pompeii: In the Shadow of the Volcano a few weeks ago and I'm still overwhelmed at the amount of information that was given throughout the exhibit. But it did bring back amazing memories of the day I spent wandering around the ruins of Pompeii in Italy over seven years ago.

I always find this issue with ROM's major exhibits: information overload. Way too many placards and information panels! So many that it distracts from the object and pieces that I'm looking at.

Event: Cocktail Fight & Giveaway!

Respect the Agave Tequila Cocktail Battle Event Preview & A Chance to Win Tickets

Start your Christmas holiday week off right with a tequila battle royale! It's going down December 21 at Addisons downtown Toronto and hosted by Siempre Tequila. The event is the first of a nation-wide series of tequila-only bartender competitions.

Local bartenders bring their own tools, ingredients and flair, but also have to use the secret ingredients in their 'black box' which can only be opened seconds before the competition!

P.s!: Tis The Season!

November Blog Roundup & December Preview

The holiday season is upon us! I know it's hard to believe but Christmas is less than 20 days away and then New Year's Eve and suddenly it's 2016. I have waaaay too many things to get done before all that happens and November was not the best month for me. I hurt my left arm and find it difficult to use it sometimes. I've also been sick for the past week, which is the reason I'm behind on my blog posts for November (so sorry). So not only do I need to play catch-up, but I need to fit in all the fun and craziness December has to offer.

From Christmas shopping, working my six jobs, and all the events I have to attend, the next few weeks are going to wild!
