She may be from Whitby, but Shelagh Pirkl is no stranger to hot weather and hotter flavours. She spent years eating her way across California, enjoying the fresh, flavourful cuisine of Mexican-American regions. Along the way, she and her husband Darren—a California native—decided to bring their findings north. So they opened Los Cabos Cantina & Grill, which is named after the Baja peninsula to perfectly capture the eatery’s Mexican-Californian cuisine.
Inside, diners feast on everything from corn-dusted red-chili calamari and monterrey club sandwiches to traditional enchiladas blanketed in melted cheese and wrapped in papier-mâché. Chefs can customize meals to the customer’s preferred spiciness level, and they can also create gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan options. Live music, an outdoor patio, and freshly muddled margaritas lure guests into the eatery’s laid-back Californian atmosphere, though tempers occasionally rise during Leafs games and Monday night football.
Wings & Slicks' professional instructors pass on heart-pumping tutelage during stunt-driving and formula-car-racing experiences in the United States and Canada. The pro drivers impart pupils with the skills needed to execute a variety of as-seen-on-TV stunts, including slalom-course runs and reverse 180-degree spins, or to navigate the track in a Formula 2000 car capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds. Each once-in-a-lifetime adventure revs up adrenalin levels while prioritizing safety; every experience begins with a lesson and includes protective equipment. Wings & Slicks, which was recently featured in a The Globe and Mail story, also baits competitive edges with timed events that pit drivers head-to-head in a test of dexterity, skill, and not closing one’s eyes during the hard parts.
The staff at OpusGlow approaches beauty by embracing the healing power of natural elements. Organic facials treat acne, rosacea, and signs of aging with Aveda products. The UV-free sunless tanning spray incorporates a vegan-friendly blend of Dead Sea salts and chamomile extract.

These tans also include anti-aging antioxidants and SPF, while seaweed body masques work to detoxify and moisturize skin. Clients looking for more intensive relaxation can indulge in a massage or step into the infrared sauna to bask in the heat of infrared light. In addition to spa services, OpusGlow offers eyelash extensions, mani-pedis, and treatments specifically designed for men.
Originally founded in 1919 as a small petting zoo known as the Cream of Barley Park, Bowmanville Zoo has since evolved into one of the largest collections of animals on the continent. More than 300 creatures roam its 42 acres of parkland, including turtles, primates, and large felines seen in feature films and television shows such as Animorphs and Peter Benchley's Amazon. Throughout the week, visitors can ride camels or elephants, see trained critters perform in the 400-seat indoor Animatheatre, or watch as handlers feed the carnivores by throwing them meat to trade with monkeys for delicious twigs. Animal Encounters' trained staff also provides insights into the biology and natural history of giraffe, lemurs, big cats and a myriad of other creatures. Guests can also cool down in the Splash Bash water attraction, ride the rides in Funland, or take a trip in the pony-drawn wagon.
