Our Weekend Guide to Celebrate Surviving the First Month of School
To my fellow Glendonites: Congratulations on completing 12.5% of the school year. While it is my first year, I can guess that it’s only going to get harder from here. So why not take a break and spend the last weekend of September taking advantage of what Toronto has to offer. With this month coming to a close and Fall just starting, there are tons of free events catered to whatever interests you.
Punk Sucks Charity DJ Night
To note: This event is more of a donate-what-you-can kind with all the funds going to Stella’s Place, a mental health organization located downtown. However, it’s worth it for the great selection of music: Green Day, Blondie, and more.
