We are already in mid-January, but many still seem to be in the holiday slump. Luckily, if you are looking for something to keep your spirits high and start the new year off right, there are multiple things to do in Toronto this weekend.The No-Pants Subway Ride is making an appearance again this year. This has been a tradition for years now not only in Toronto but in 50+ other cities around the world. There are also various skate venues for all of those winter activities enthusiasts, so take advantage of the best part of winter. Mayor John Tory will be hosting a party at a skating rink in the Beaches, which is always a great time every year.
