The Weekend To-Do: We’re hitting Toronto’s annual CNE and shopping several online-come-warehouse sales!

Sad but true, August is already halfway over. On the bright side, it’s time for back-to-school shopping (and the working girl’s equivalent). This fall our wardrobes are practically begging for a new pair of jeans, graphic print jackets, designer shoes and of course the invaluable cocktail dress, all of which you’ll find at pop-up warehouse sales and street festivals this weekend. See you at the checkout.

The legendary CNE kicks off this weekend in all its carnival glory at Toronto’s Exhibition Place. Keeping in the tradition of gluttonous food adventures, this year there’ll be an all-bacon stand. Those with less carnivorous tastes can indulge at the new vegan stand.
