Leisure Club Toronto’s team of socialization experts sets up approximately 15 events each month around the greater Toronto area to give guests—many of them singles or single parents—a chance to meet new friends. Activities may include murder-mystery dinner theatre, learning to make chocolate, or trips to see touring comedy groups. Each low-key outing is intended to build friendships naturally around individual hobbies and interests, creating an easier way to connect than just standing downtown and shouting “anyone here like bowling?” for a couple of hours.

During the Niagara Falls day trip, guests hop aboard spacious charter buses from Pacific Western Transportation, whose gentle purr harmonizes with sing-a-longs on the all-day expedition.

Alternatively, buses that depart on August 27 or September 10 lead passengers to the Canada One Factory Outlets mall teeming with 40 brand-name stores. Next, tour groups infiltrate Niagara-on-the-Lake, admiring quaint shops and historic sites. Buses then cruise alongside the Niagara River, stopping at Whirlpool Gorge for passengers to marvel at its circular currents that stem from schools of indecisive fish. While in Niagara Falls, clients can also opt to embark on a Maid of the Mist boat tour or climb to the top of the Skylon Tower. Alternatively, sightseers can spend their day meandering through Niagara Falls before hopping back on the bus and reuniting with Toronto by 8:30 p.m.
Vintage One Wines puts the power of winemaking into the hands of Toronto's toasters. With this offer, clients have the opportunity to guide a malbec or chardonnay into flavourful fruition from grapes sourced from the vineyards of Chile and Argentina. The process begins with a tour of Vintage One Wines' 10,000-square-foot facility, followed by a one-on-one consultation with a professional winemaker. From there, 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.
