news for a chilly night

Here are a few tidbits to distract you from that Visa bill that recently showed up.

Happy 5th Birthday to Melanie’s – $25 prix fixe menu!

How much do we love having this superb little bistro in our neighbourhood?  A lot, that’s how much.  Melanie’s Bistro is turning 5, and to celebrate, they are offering a special $25 prix fixe menu, $2 off sandwiches and wraps at weekday lunches, AND half off desserts during the week.  I’d say these are some pretty good reasons to stop in to celebrate right along with them!

Artisans at Work: Call-out for Teachers

Renos are under way at one of the neighbourhood’s new businesses, Artisans-at-Work, and owner Tara has asked us to post this message:

Artisans At Work, 2071 Danforth, is almost finished construction.
We will be open in February to the public for classes, workshops and events, whilst we continue to stock our shelves with Toronto artist’s work!
We would like to take this opportunity to invite all local art, music, dance, and theatrical teachers in the neighbourhood and beyond, to submit proposals to hold classes for children, teens and adults.
We are looking to fill many series of classes in time slots, but also single classes here and there. March break classes are also ready to be planned and booked!
Please submit your proposed class, time and day(s) preference, cost, and any other information to us by clicking here.
Thank you,
PS – Website coming soon:; in the meantime you can “like” us on Facebook to keep in touch!
