Do Make Say Think: June 30 - July 6
What we're doing this week


Get pumped to get porky. What to eat, drink and do this week. 

Ribfest: I completely ignored my dad’s advice to rein it in (cholesterol!) at Ribfest. The sprawling, 3-day gorgefest opened today at Centennial Park. 16 grandstands covered in banners and cheesy slogans (“It’s bone-suckin’ good!”) were slopping out the goods – pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw and ribs. They tour the ribfest circuit across Ontario vying for BBQ supremacy. It’s only so long before the combination of 33 degree heat, classic rock and greasy pork takes its toll – bring some sort of shade. There’s even a coffin simulator at the haunted house to retire to during your meat coma. Free, but all donated proceeds go to food programs for kids. Friday June 29 – Monday July 2, 2012. 11:00 am – 11:00 pm
