1. Go see a movie at Imagine Cinemas

Everyone should go to the movies alone at least once. No arguing over what to see, or having your friends talk to you during the movie (so annoying). Imagine Cinemas has a few locations downtown at Yonge and Carlton or Market Square. Cheap Tuesdays are only $5 all day!

2. Visit The ROM or The AGO

Exercise and good times all in one! Bike riding alone allows you to be on your own schedule, and admire the beauty of the Toronto harbour as you wish! A lil' exercise never hurt anybody.
