Travelling by motor coach is one of the most exciting ways to sightsee, according to Trip On. The tour company arranges single- and multiday trips that whisk travellers to popular destinations in the U.S.A. and Canada, all in the comfort of luxury coaches that never get stuck in cloud traffic. After collecting passengers from designated pickup locations, the coaches speed away to places such as the Kawartha Lakes, historic Gettysburg, or popular casinos. Most day trips include lunch and sightseeing tours led by Trip On’s knowledgeable guides, and multiday excursions also include hotel accommodations. The staff can also accommodate custom tour requests, to create a trip tailored to a customer’s unique adventurous spirit.
Liss Gallery, established in 1983, is located in the heart of Toronto and is a leader in the promotion of Canadian and International art. The gallery features contemporary fine art including original paintings, photography, sculptures and limited edition prints.
Though there are specific pieces on display at Sevan Art Gallery, the inventory is not limited to what is hanging in the physical gallery. This allows customers to request any piece on the market, which the team at Sevan will then track down and have shipped to the gallery. To supplement their art dealing, staffers offer an on-site framing service. Knowledgeable designers help clients select custom frames and acid-free mats for photos or paintings or build out shadow boxes for three-dimensional items, such as sports memorabilia or the bronzed bust of a deceased cactus.
Tour the tastes of everyone's favourite subcontinent with a visit to Garam Masala. Owner and chief chef Jagat Ram’s 30 years of experience directing the kitchens of five-star hotels has endowed him with sumptuous superpowers that enable the seamless pairing of textures with flavours and spices with customers' horoscopes. Inaugurate the feast with a Punjabi samosa ($0.99 each), or whet an herbivorous appetite with an order of vegetable pakoras ($4.99). Put Garam Masala's authentic clay tandoor to the test by sampling the hara tikka ($11.99), a five-piece chicken ensemble marinated in mint and cooked to fork-flaking tenderness. Garam Masala's extensive menu also includes all the saucy favourites, from the tangy lamb vindaloo ($12.99) to a generous helping of butter chicken ($11.99). Like a hard-nosed news editor, the denizens of the vintage wine list cut spices without mercy, making the difficult decisions that will leave mouths trembling with trepidatious appreciation.
Vintage One puts the power of winemaking into the hands of Toronto's toasters. With this offer, clients will have the opportunity to guide an Argentinean Malbec or Chilean Chardonnay into flavourful fruition. The process begins with a tour of Vintage One's 10,000-square-foot facility, followed by a one-on-one consultation with a Vintage One winemaker. From there, Vintage One clients can use a monthly production calendar to be as hands-on as they like throughout the entire two-month winemaking process, including fermentation, filtration, and stabilization, or they can just let the wine take its own course while they spend the interim traversing the globe on a falcon-guided vision quest. Once the wine is ready, Vintage One customers will choose a bottle and cork (an additional fee of about $1.25 a bottle, for a total of around $15) and may even opt to custom design a label (also for an additional fee) for the concoction, perhaps building off the imagery of their fire-breathing-eagle neck tattoos.
