This Weekend…lookin for SOM more???

TGIF!!!  Whether you’ve already got plans, or are simply planning on relaxing here are some weekend goodies around my neck of the woods that are totally worth checking out:

EXPERIENCE: Burlington’s Sound of Music (S.O.M.)
This weekend marks the annual Sound of Music festival in my hometown of Burlington and did I mention that it’s Canada’s largest FREE music festival?! This weekend is what really puts me in summer mode and I look forward to every year.

What’s it about? This entire weekend there are a ton of local and popular musical performers on the 4 stages with food trucks, a carnival  and even some fireworks (on Saturday). To top it off, we always try to hit up Burlington Beach prior to get our tan on.  I love being able to hear the music while being by the lake.

LISTEN: NXNE (aka North by Northeast)
This Toronto event is awesome! It’s seven days of 1000 band, 30 films, and 150 comedians and ends this weekend (June 10-16).  There is always some great indie music.  I’m hoping to check out Wintersleep and/or Paper Lions on Satuday. What are you thinking of hitting up? Be sure to check out the line up here and info about wristbands and such here.

SHOP: Dagg and Stacey Pop Up Shop
If you haven’t picked up on it in my prior post here, I am a huge fan of Toronto based label Dagg and Stacey.  Not only are their clothes handmade, there are absolutely beautiful! I’ve got a few style posts coming up (including this weekend) to help convince you. Here’s the deets:

Sat June 15 2013
The Gladstone Hotel Art Bar
1214 Queen St West
10 am - 7 pm

SPOIL: Your Pops! Because it’s his special dad on Sunday 🙂 Try some of these ideas:
– Make him roasted pistachios like Angie at #hashtag random 
– Take him to SOM (What can I say – I <3 this event!)

Since my Dad never asks for anything, I’m always pro getting him a “doing gift” and this year W and I are planning a yummy BBQ for our famjam to celebrate our dads.  Here are some recipes I’m hoping to try: Charred Mexican Zucchini by Joy the Baker, how to grill a hen (or chicken) from Chris Loves Julia, and for dessert a raspberry almond tart from M loves M

What are you up to this weekend?
