We could all use a little more fun in our lives. Living in the heart of Davisville Village means you’re never far away from the action and adventure. But because most of us live such busy lives, finding the time to find fun things to do and make plans can seem like a full time job. To help make things easier and way more enjoyable, we’ve planned out a week of fun activities in Davisville Village for you to try. Mark your calendars and get excited!
Start the week on the right foot. A Monday meetup with a few friends at your neighbourhood watering hole is just the ticket. Kramer’s Bar and Grill (1915 Yonge Street) is a great local pub. A visit there will put a smile on your face thanks to their friendly staff, diverse beer options, and excellent and eclectic menu. When the weather warms up, there are two patios to soak up the sun on. If you’re looking for that comfy spot where everybody knows your name, you don’t have to look very far.
Tuesday is the perfect day to take in a movie. The crowds are thinner than on the weekends, and the tickets are cheaper! Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Eglinton and VIP (formerly SilverCity) is located at 2300 Yonge Street. It’s a great spot to catch the latest blockbusters – there are even reclining seats in the VIP theatres! This theatre features the latest screen tech, from 3D to Ultra AVX and D Box, all the way up to D Box Ultra AVX 3D (whatever that is!). Regular admission on Tuesdays is only $8.99, with special prices for their fancy options too.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for there, just across the street (at 2190 Yonge Street) you’ll find Famous Players Canada Square Cinemas. They offer the latest first-run films, but it’s also a great theatre to see some smaller, hidden gems that you may have missed. Tuesday tickets are just $8.25 for general admission and $11.25 for 3D features.
Beat the Hump Day blues and work out some midweek tension by treating yourself to a spa day! You have several nearby options for spas to suit your needs in the Davisville Village area. Alma Natural Spa is a great one if you’re looking to avoid harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. They offer an authentically natural atmosphere, using only non-toxic, eco-friendly ingredients in their handmade scrubs, lotions and oils. You can learn more about Alma in our recent feature article.
We could all use more laughter in our lives. When you’re looking for laugh-out-loud fun and the absolute best in local and international stand up comedy, look no further than Absolute Comedy (2335 Yonge Street). Checking out some comedy is the perfect date night activity or group get-together, and a great way to get into an early, upbeat headspace for the upcoming weekend! Tickets are just $12 on Thursdays!
Choosing exciting Friday plans can be tricky. Are you in the mood to go out for dinner? Maybe see a show? Getting tickets for Mysteriously Yours Dinner Theatre (2026 Yonge Street)kills those two birds with one stone. Enjoy a great meal and immerse yourself in a live murder mystery performance! Their fun, funny, interactive and entertaining shows have been wowing crowds since 1987. Come see what all the mystery is about! Find out more about Mysteriously Yours in our feature article and interview.
It’s Saturday! Easily the most fun day of the week for most of us. The rules of the work week no longer apply and we are free to escape the everyday. If you’re looking for a true escape, check out Escape Casa Loma. Escape rooms are popping up all over the place these days. But there is no other venue in Toronto that compares to Casa Loma. The epic castle setting lends itself perfectly to the dramatic escape series storyline. There are also live performers and full theatrical production sets to enhance your experience. Choose the story and room that’s right for you, and plan your escape with the help of your friends!
Sundays are perfect for chilling out at home. After the jam packed week of fun you’ve had, you deserve a little downtime. Get reacquainted with your couch and catch up on your favourite shows or movies. To avoid cabin fever, we recommend stepping out for a bit a brunch in the middle of day. Boom Breakfast & Co (174 Eglinton West) is home to some of the best Eggs Benny in the city, and their Chocolate Monkey Waffles are worship-worthy. If you want to really stretch your legs after brunch, take an urban hike along the Beltline Trail and see what’s up at Evergreen Brickworks. There is a TTC stop at Evergreen and the #28 bus will return you to Davisville Station, if walking all the way back is not on your to-do list.
We hope this post motivates you to get out there and enjoy this fabulous neighbourhood you call home, every day of the week!
