The Weekend To-Do: We’re celebrating Thanksgiving by shopping, fashion show-going and drinking Alexander Keith’s beer
Traditionally this weekend has always been about the turkey dinner and the turkey drop (may you not be on the receiving end). Beware the tryptophan-induced food coma because this long weekend there are plenty of fashionable, non-turkey related things to get up to: shopping sprees at the mall, runway shows in the prairies and the birthday of a beer baron.
Bust out your Saturday Pant/sweats/elasticized waists. It’s time to give thanks for everything we hold near and dear with a family dinner of epic proportions. Pass the gravy.
The Eaton Centre
Downtown Toronto’s premiere shopping mall got a major fashion injection this week. One stop prep shop J.Crew opened a spacious new location complete with their first-ever men’s section in the GTA. Uptown-girl hotspot Ann Taylor has also landed; preview fall muse Kate Hudson’s picks on their website. And south of Queen Street, the Bay has expanded its Topshop offering, which now encompasses an entire store.
