Don’t Miss Out On This Weeks Toronto Events!

 We believe it’s our duty to ensure you don’t waste away your week, therefore we have carefully selected some must attend Toronto events! Stay tuned for the not-so-family friendly version!

1. The Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z concert this Wednesday. We can’t forget to include this little (but big) mid-week break! Why it’s a Femme Gem favourite: Well, besides the fact that each song these two put out is amazing, you won’t be able to help but drool with the two of these hunks on stage dancing all night. We’d say Justin’s abs are a pretty good distraction for getting work off your mind!

2. The Wizard of Oz Play: Why this is a Femme Gem favourite: This has to be an all-time childhood favourite! You can re-live that childhood dream since the movie will come to life this Friday, July 19th. Taking place at the Ed Mirvish Theatre with prices ranging from as little as $35.00 – $175.00. If you loved this movie as a child and are looking to kick-back and relax Friday after work, this is the perfect place to do it.
