By definition, I guess you could say I’m a geek. I enjoy the finer things in life, like sipping a glass of Chianti while watching Marvel movies. That’s how I celebrate life on a budget. There are times however, when an event approaches that I’m willing to clear my entire lazy-day schedule for.
Fan Expo Toronto
Fan Expo isn't your grandad's Comic-Con. This event is so large is takes up the entire Metro Convention Centre (approx. the size of 2 major league baseball fields). Imagine walking 20 minutes through a crowd just to get to the other side of the building in hopes of spotting Jason Mamoa and taking in the rest of the attractions and booths this geek-fest has to offer. Definitely worth it.
Gourmet Food & Wine Expo
A little bit of wine, a touch of caviar and a few celebrity chef appearances. If the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo isn't a place for you, then I think you may need to re-evaluate your priorities. Though the day can get expensive between the entry fee and additional drink tickets you'll have to purchase once you're in, I'm on the side that believes the experience makes it worthwhile.
Elevate Tech Fest
If you're interested in connecting with like-minded tech followers and some of the largest influencing companies in the tech space, you need to start taking notes. Elevate is one of Toronto's largest city-wide innovation festival that features speakers from all around the globe.
What are your top three favourite events in the city? It’s important to step out of your routine every now and then to enjoy and revel in your passions with others who share the same interests. When you attend events like these you’re sure to learn something new and make some connections. In the end, isn’t that what life’s all about? Sometimes you have to stop thinking, and just live it.
