As the long weekend approaches so does that heat reminding us how long it's been since we had a scorching summer day. And now that it's officially that time of the year, it's officially time to grab some friends and head outside for some day drinks and good times.
But it wouldn't be a summer in the city without a good ol' fashioned caesar. They're many people's drink of choice when it comes to a hot summer day because they're just so dang refreshing. But there's a new caesar in town.
In fact, there's a whole lot of new caesar coming to town. Starting Saturday July 7 at Assembly's Chef Hall at 111 Richmond Street West, you and your friends will be able to build your own crazy caesar concotions through various additons to the staple drink.
You start with your base caesar of vodka, rim and clamato for only 5 bucks. After that, you can add anything your heart desires from one of the 18 vendor booths inside the hall.
Options include a slider on a skewer, yakitori, pogos, mac & cheese bites, tater tots, hand roll, chicken satay, 1/2 lobster tail/claw, meatballs, caprese on stick, candied bacon, various meats/cheese, arancini, chicken & waffles, dumplings, falafel, croquette and many more! It's caesar madness!
Each add-on will cost you anywhere from 3-6 bucks, but the experience is well worth it for all the interesting things you can do to a classic caesar. The DIY caesar experience will run from 11am-3pm every Saturday.
History was made at a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in East York as it set Canada's record for most doses administered at one location in a single day.
The Thorncliffe Park Community Hub clinic administered 10,470 vaccine doses on Sunday, May 16, Toronto East Health Network (TEHN) announced on Twitter. Michael Garron Hospital shared photos of the clinic on Monday, which even has a live DJ to keep the energy high.
CBC Toronto shared a video capturing the cheers and celebrations that ensued when the clinic reached its 10,000-dose milestone — according to TEHN, the Thorncliffe Park clinic is made up of 108 volunteers, 74 pharmacy staff, 65 vaccinators, 55 registration clerks, and dozens of other team members.
Prime Minister Trudeau tweeted his congratulations to the clinic, saying, "This is exactly the kind of determination and teamwork it's going to take to beat this virus. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it happen."
As COVID-19 cases continue to drop, one of the province's top doctors has revealed that Ontario's reopening plan is on the way.
According to CP24, Christine Elliott, minister of health, told reporters on Tuesday that the plan will be coming "very soon."
"We have been working with the chief medical officer of health and the medical experts on a safe and careful reopening of Ontario because the last thing we want is to go into it too quickly and to get into a fourth wave. We have to do everything we can to avoid that so we are working on that and we expect it will be available very soon," Elliott said.
"It is sector specific looking at what different types of sectors could perhaps be reopened and what their specific needs and timelines are."
