In no particular order, here are a few events and neighbourhood tidbits to peruse:

Stadium Grand Opening – December 8
The brand new state-of-the-art stadium in Monarch Park is open for business. To give all of us a chance to peek inside “the bubble”, there is a community GRAND Opening this Saturday, December 8 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Go take a look – this kind of facility in our own backyard is not to be missed!

Silly Goose Kids is #1
Congratulations to our friends at Silly Goose Kids, who were voted Toronto’s #1 toy store by the readers of BlogTO! Check out the article here. Don’t forget that Silly Goose Kids has partnered with Woodgreen for their annual toy drive – ask them about the many ways that you can give the next time you are in.
The survey doesn’t open.

With the Monarch Park stadium opening there is a really good opportunity for local business to attract the ‘post sport’ crowd. I play in several leagues and quite often going out for drinks and some food after the game is as important as the game itself. Teams tend to choose places like the Firkins or The Brazen Head or Shoeless Joes,.. pubs, sports bars etc. One very attractive offer for any team is a free plate of natchos or other snack if there is a team group of some minimum number (6 or 8). If any business in the area is willing to make such an offer I’d be happy to help spread the word among the ladies soccer league. Hopefully having this facility in our neighborhood will translate into having more bums in seats at restaurants and overall improvement to our neighborhood economy.
Thank you Robin. We have updated the post.
