#WindowWonderland Contest Winner!
THANKS to all the Riverside businesses who dressed up their windows so fabulously – take a look at our blog which shows snaps of many of them – and be sure to check them out in person, if you haven’t already, as they are sure to be on display throughout the holiday season!
#RiversideTO still has many gorgeous windows displays for the holiday season, but the winner of the #WindowWonderland Contest is AJ_Antiques for her snap of Arts Market! She loved the homey of the fire and mantel with the hanging stocking. Big Congrats to AJ, she’s won a $100 Gift Certificate to use at Arts Market!
The new “digital exhibition” captures all of the storytelling, data and photography of the exhibition about the threat of current commercial property tax evaluation to Toronto’s brick and mortar businesses, plus discussion and commentary from business advocates. Read it, share it, and use it as a platform to continue the conversation with business owners and policymakers about the need for a solution to this continuing municipal issue.
Micro Museum Opens – The Friars Music Museum!
Toronto’s celebrated music history is now on permanent display in the Shoppers Drug Mart south of Yonge-Dundas Square – a legendary building that housed the Hard Rock Cafe and famed nightclubs The Friars and The Nickelodeon.
Championed by Mark Garner and the Downtown Yonge BIA, the 2nd floor exhibit officially opened yesterday as The Friars Music Museum. It features instruments and other musical artifacts, along with photos, videos and stories from the many music icons who performed on Yonge St. stages. To read the full press release click here.
