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.
Spanning 25,000 square feet of living quarters for coldblooded creatures, Reptilia houses more than 200 venomous and nonvenomous reptiles and amphibians. Experienced keepers and handlers educate zoo-goers on the critters that make up the more than 50 exhibits, including star attractions such as a 14-foot king cobra, a red-footed tortoise, and Induna—a 14-foot Nile crocodile weighing more than 1,200 pounds. Besides expounding on animals’ eating habits during four live feedings each day, the staff also demonstrates the reptiles’ instinctive behaviors during live shows in an on-site theatre. Furthering its commitment to reptilian education, the zoo helps visitors overcome their irrational fears of snakes, spiders, and terrarium glass in a four-week course dedicated to phobias, and camp counselors guide Reptilia campers through science experiments, arts and crafts, and ecologically focused zoo tours.

At Puck’s Farm, visitors can bond with 180 acres of the natural environment by learning about harvest-time chores and activities or scheduling weddings and events year-round on the open grounds. Guests of the farm can meet its animal residents, including emus, llamas, and a farm cat, which is much friendlier than a farm puma. For an even more interactive experience with fauna, Puck’s offers pony rides and the opportunity to milk cows and churn butter. Wooded trails traverse the expanse and present one of the many places on the farm where guests can delight in the changing of the seasons. Fall, for example, offers a variety of seasonal activities: visitors can get lost in corn mazes, pick ripened pumpkins, ride in horse-drawn wagons, and stroll through trails speckled with changing leaves. Autumn months also see pigs and goats building their nests for the winter ahead. An onsite snack bar serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries enables guests to refuel for full days of farm activities.
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.
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.
