Growing up in the 905: it's both a blessing and a curse. If you grew up in Markham, you probably remember how bad Highway 7 used to be and you probably remember watching movies at First Markham Place.

Here are some things you might be able to relate to if you're from Markham.

Yes, it's true, summer is finally coming to an end. No more getting out of the house to enjoy the heat of the sun, no more warm late nights on the Harbourfront, and no more short shorts and bikinis on top. You're sad about it, your girlfriend's sad about it, we're all sad about it.

Take advantage of the last few weeks of summer by doing some fun things in Toronto with your girlfriend. There are still plenty of things going on and plenty of things to do! Get out of your comfort zones and try new things. Lounging around at home together may be fun but don't spend your last few weeks of summer doing that – you have the entire cold winter. You don't want to look back three months from now when it's freezing outside and think, "wow, I had a lousy summer." You'll thank me later.

First made popular in Japan back in 2009, "escape the room" games have been taking North America by storm recently, giving us a new and unique way to slay our boredom. The concept is simple: Use your best powers of observation, deduction and problem-solving abilities to successfully figure out and escape the enigmatic room before time runs out. Easier said than done however, no matter how smart you think you are, but oh so much fun.

The biggest franchised room escape game in Eastern Canada, Trapped brings fantasies and movie scenarios to real life, putting all five of your senses to the test and challenging your wits like no video game ever could. With 4 different themes to choose from, all of Trapped's multi-roomed themes have been carefully considered and masterfully crafted by an interior designer from Osaka, Japan, who stopped at nothing to create highly immersive and engaging escape experiences that push intelligence (sanity) to its very limit.
