Fun Events TorontoToronto is finally thawing out, which means more people are going out to enjoy themselves -- one cannot live on Netflix alone. So, if you want to get out there, what should you do? 

First up is Real Escape Game Toronto, an interactive theatrical art experience located at The Foundery on Dundas West. Players are locked in a room and presented with a series of clues in the form of furniture, clutter, and props to help themselves get out. Millions of participants have played variations on the game in Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore. Think you've got great people skills? Find out if you make the cut. 

A bunch of new restaurants have opened in Toronto, including new installations of local favourites like Ed's Real Scoop, Kenzo Ramen, and Luther's Chicken. Of course, the one Toronto's food critics have been waiting for is Luckee, the latest effort from Toronto celebrity chef Susur Lee. Luckee is Lee's foray into all-day dim sum at the base of the Soho Metropolitan Hotel. It offers weekend cart service, and looks poised to compete with that other most recent entrants to the hipster gourmet Asian restaurant scene, like Momofuku, Chanticler, and Barrio Coreano (one of only two Mexican restaurants that my kids LOVE!). 

At the AGO, Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty is on. It "draws on the artists’ experiences during times of conflict and violence, including the London Blitz of the Second World War, to examine how confinement and angst fostered their extraordinary creativity and unique visions." 

At the Design Exchange, This Is Not A Toy, guest curated by hip-hop producer and Oscar nominee Pharrell, "explores the conceptual toy – a form made solely as an expression of an aesthetic, concept or idea – as an art and design object as well as a contemporary cultural signifier."
 
Allan Gardens and Centennial Gardens showcase some of world's most unique plants. Both locations are currently exhibiting the Spring Blooms Flower Show which allows visitors to take in a varietys of bulbs and spring flowers along with our permanent collections of tropical plants and cacti. The highlight of the Spring Flower show is the Easter Show which features traditional Easter plants. Though you can visit anyday, the Easter Show runs April 13- May 4, 2014.
