You’ve been friends forever. You’ve probably done every single BFF thing there is to do in Toronto, and now you need some fresh ideas. We’ve got you covered. Setting aside some time to maintain those super important best friend relationships is important. Who else is going to have your back no matter what? From a newbie aerial silks class to this crazy new cardio workout, here are some super fun things you must try.
#1 – Take the newbie aerial silks class together
A newbie aerial silks class is excellent lady date material. Who else will you feel comfortable making a total ass of yourself in front of? This workout will get your heart rate up, improve your strength and flexibility, and get you moving in ways you’ve never moved before. Take the plunge at The Circus Fix. They have a newbie aerial silks class designed just for beginners. Bonus: their class sizes are really small so you’ll get the attention you need.
#2 – Go axe throwing like modern lumberjacks
Pull that old flannel out of your closet and get ready for a totally fierce BFF Instagram post. Escape the modern world and try axe throwing at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Far Shot axe throwing sets up outdoors at Black Creek on Saturday nights and is one of the most affordable axe throwing options in the city. Enjoy history, nature, and cold craft beer, and learn how to chuck an axe to hit the bullseye every time.
#3 – Discover new flavors of Kensington Market
If you’re looking to grab a bite, skip the restaurants and head to Kensington Market. Chopsticks+Forks will take you on a VIP tour of the market where you’ll try food from all over the world. Taste the best exotic Ethiopian dishes, or indulge in the flavors of South America. Discover a new side of the city and walk off everything you eat (ish). This tour lasts for about three hours and includes tastings from five continents.
#4 – Get crafty and creative at Paint Cabin
Catch up with your friends over some wine and painting. Paint Cabin in Riverdale is a sweet artists’ studio that offers regular paint night painting classes. You’ll be guided step-by-step in the creation of your own masterpiece, all the while sampling from the bar menu. Not your style? Check out their freestyle sessions where the only person calling the (artistic) shots is you. Pro tip, this place hosts fun Friday night parties.
#5 – Make macarons at Le Dolci
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, we bet macarons are a great runner up. You can learn how to make them at Le Dolci in one of their macaron workshops. You will learn how to prepare the fillings, the airy batter, and how to make them crunchy and delicious. Not to mention this cute little studio is right by Trinity Bellwoods Park, perfect for strolls after, and super close to the Ossington and Dundas bar scene.
#6 – Do something totally different at pole dancing
There’s a reason pole dancing has become a popular pastime with studios cropping up all over the city. It makes you feel confident, but it also helps you build muscle mass and get lean. At Brass Vixens you can take a beginner pole dancing class and learn the basic moves. If you are in the mood for something a bit sultrier, then check out the chair dancing and burlesque lessons.
