Neighbors to the North
At Padma Lakshmi’s Blossom Ball to support The Endometriosis Foundation of America, Susan Sarandon, who spoke at the event, told us that she had just returned from Atlanta, where she was working on location. “Now I’m going to Toronto—I’m working,” she confessed. Her favorite place to unwind and have some fun? “I have a club! SPiN!” (toronto.spingalactic.com.)
That’s right, the Ping-Pong social club has expanded internationally, and the 12,000-square-foot space located at 461 King Street West in downtown Toronto is no laughing matter. There are enough booze and leisure games to entertain even the fussiest vacationer.
If you’re in town, go see Patti Smith’s not-to-be missed “Camera Solo” show at the Art Gallery of Ontario (ago.net), which will remain open until May 19. Our Toronto connoisseur recommended dinner and a bottle of Barolo at Mark McEwan’s Bymark (bymark.mcewangroup.ca) and a pampering stay at the ultra-hip Drake Hotel in West Queen West (thedrakehotel.ca).
