Toronto Social Dance School's instructors teach students with all kinds of dance experience, ranging from beginners who have never set heeled foot to hardwood to seasoned dancers looking to learn a new style. The instructors must complete a rigorous training program before they can teach, so they are well-versed in a variety of dancing styles. They can teach students traditional ballroom and social dance routines and how to have fun doing the merengue, hustle, and waltz.

In addition to dance classes seven days a week, Toronto Social Dance School also encourages students to practice their shuffling during weekly socials held Sunday afternoons and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

At Casa Manila, named the best Filipino restaurant in blogTO.com's Best of Toronto, the scents of saffron, coconut milk, and tamarind slip among rustling walls of potted plants. Grass-thatched windows and bamboo shoots hint at the fistfuls of veggies that accent braised meats, grilled king fish, and stews. The dishes all display the exotic style of Filipino fare, which combines Malay, Spanish, Southeast Asian, and Chinese influences. Warm-hued lights, draped in fabric printed with frolicking animals, illuminate the plates, and imported Sarsi, a Filipino root beer, bubbles alongside them. On the patio, umbrellas shelter diners from the hot sun and the sight of clouds being born.

Since 1964, the culinary teams at Golden Griddle Family Restaurants have diligently crafted a massive menu of homestyle classics. They fill three-egg omelettes with spinach and grilled mushrooms, incorporate fruity fillings into crepes, and whip up pancakes from one of three types of batter, including 10-grain. When lunch and dinner roll around, they shift their focus to hearty feasts of English-style fish and chips and slow-cooked pot roast smothered in beef gravy. Since it's free of trans fats, that gravy is part of Golden Griddle's health-conscious stock of ingredients, which also includes diet syrups and reduced-fat cream.

While their elders order off the main menu, kids ages 10 and under can select from their very own menu, which showcases meals such as spaghetti and grilled cheese. In addition, each child receives a complementary toy and crayons, which are perfect for entering Golden Griddle's colouring contest or for penning a newspaper op-ed in favour of outlawing broccoli.
