There’s always a good time in the Stobie’s parking lot! Thanks for the fun pic! ???? • #Repost @chrisnorley with @get_repost ・・・ Spontaneous, unscheduled #PostGig #pizza #tailgate #jazz party with my old friend #SandyMackay at @StobiesPizza #GreatMindsThinkAlike and #FoolsSeldomDiffer #geezers
Let’s get the necessities out of the way – you have to eat. Follow the twitter account for Stobie’s Pizza, because every day they tweet some random first names – if they tweet yours, you can get a free slice of pizza – and it is good pizza. If you can handle the heat, try the Cryin’ Hawaiian – the pepper complements sweet pineapple very well.
If your name doesn’t get picked, don’t pull out your wallet. Just go to the Convent Garden Market or the Market at Western Fair. These farmers’ markets have plenty of vendors offering samples, so you can taste everything! Do bring your wallet though – you’re going to fall in love with some of the food and want to take it home – blueberry jam is just better when it’s fresh.
See The Stars
Head to the Hume Cronyn Memorial Observatory, where they have numerous telescopes set up on the balcony and lawn for you to use to view space. At the same time, astronomers wander through the crowd, answering questions and pointing out interesting phenomena that you may have missed on your own.
Tour A Cathedral
St. Peter’s Cathedral is one of the most stunning churches in Canada. Built in the 1800’s, it has beautiful stained glass windows, intricate wood and stone work, and more. Schedule a free guided tour and take pictures. Even if you’re not Catholic, you’re more than welcome to visit the historic church!
Explore Exotic Flora
Visit the City Of London Greenhouse and Garden Complex to see a large variety of exotic plants and trees. You can walk through the gardens anytime, but you may also see one of their annual events taking place, where you can take the opportunity to learn more about conservation and nature. It’s fun and relaxing, and completely free!
The London Public Library is always hosting classes and events, and most of them are free. Learn tai chi, talk to immigrants in guided conversations about their experiences, or play board games and drink tea. You can easily spend a whole day at the library, and that’s before even picking up a book!
