As if you weren't already counting the days until summer, here's an epic event coming up in Toronto that you won't want to miss. The 3rd AnnualRosé Picnic is the place to sip and be seen in a sea of pink. Not only is there going to be a ton of rosé, but there is also live music, full-service bars, DJs, samples, dancing, gourmet food with vegan options, samples and a ton of very pink Instagram photo ops.
Rosé is a super popular staple for wine-lovers in the summer. A chilled glass of the pink stuff really hits the spot on a warm afternoon! They are flavourful and juicy compared to red and white wines that can sometimes taste a little on the dry side. The Rosé Picnic is your chance to try a variety of Ontario rosé wines and find your new favourite for the summer of 2019.
This is likely going to be the largest picnic that you've ever been to since they're expecting to welcome 5,000 rosé-loving guests this summer. This would be a great event to go to with a big group to celebrate any summer birthdays. Also, you have to wear a pink and/or white outfit to participate in the picnic so make sure you have something in your wardrobe that screams "rosé" so you'll fit in!
The 2019 Rosé Picnic is happening on Saturday, July 27 at the Stanley Barracks Hotel X Toronto from 12 PM to 10 PM. Tickets start at $37.11 with tax and service fees included and your ticket gets you a wine glass, a wine bag and the first 1500 people get a free picnic blanket. There are a ton of VIP and group ticket options, too.
In a press conference on Thursday, the premier stated that while the next few weeks will continue to see businesses and gatherings shuttered, Ontarians shouldn't lose hope for a normal July and August.
"My goal is to have the most normal July and August possible," he states. "Obviously, that won't mean large sporting events or concerts."
"But, if we manage the next few weeks properly, I believe that we can have things in a very good place this summer."
On top of this, the premier also states that they working on getting everyone vaccinated as quickly as possible, in order to reduce cases and lift restrictions.
"If we get the supply, we will work our backs off to have a two-dose summer, instead of a one-dose summer."
Justin Trudeau threw some shade at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday morning, stating that their chances of winning the Stanley Cup this year are "unthinkable."
In an interview with CP24, the prime minister jokingly mocked Toronto fans, saying that he admires their ability to always be able to cling onto hope for their team.
"As a Habs fan, I'm kind of in admiration of Toronto fans who continue to cling to hopes every year, year in and year out, it's impressive to see," Trudeau told CP24. "If the unthinkable does happen and we're all wonderfully surprised to see the Leafs in the Stanley Cup finals, I know there will be ways to make sure that everyone gets to watch."
The leader also revealed where the federal government stands on letting the Toronto team do playoffs on home soil this year.
"I can tell you that one of the things that will make that decision easier if it comes, is for everyone to get vaccinated and for the cases to be driven down in those coming weeks," he stated. "More than 75% of Canadians need to get vaccinated, that's how we get back to normal, which I'm not going to say normal includes the Leafs winning the Stanley Cup, but it does mean we're moving in the right direction."
