Grand Marnier’s Speakeasy Experience Is Worth Talking About

Picture this. It’s the prohibition and all the of the experiences are only in the underground, off the city streets and behind doors from the watchful eye of the public, and especially, law enforcement.

A garden party is one thing. Hosting a memorable garden party is another. Stella Artois and Chefs Plate decided to Host One To Remember at this spectacular house on The Bridle Path, with a rich, manicured backyard that almost felt like we were around a French Chateau, than a mansion in Toronto.

Nespresso Takes Your Morning Coffee On Two New Explorations

Coffee comes from many places in the world, but rarely those places are highlighted. Some coffee companies are more open about the countries they obtain their beans from. Some customers don’t even explore where their coffee is even from. Let’s change that, please. Nespresso has launched two new unique, limited edition collections of coffee from Laos and Kenya. These hidden gems mark taste profiles that are opposite of each other. Both with acidity, but one more embedded with wheat flavours, the other, fruit. Nespresso as launched their new collections named Explorations 1, which comprises two limited edition coffees, Laos Bolaven Plateau and[Read More]

You Are One Weekend Away From Fully Appreciating Canadian Whisky

Whisky is something that’s not quick to start. You can’t make whisky right away, it takes time. You have to play the long game. Forty Creek Whisky started the same way.

Play The Rock Golf Course in Muskoka

On our trip staying at the brilliant J.W. Marriott The Rosseau decided to play golf. But, where do we play that’s very convenient and a tough course, designed by a well-known golf pro in Muskoka? Well, across the street from the JW Marriott – Rosseau Residences, evidently evidently. The Rock is one of those courses that is daunting. Very daunting. The course itself has cliffs, rolling hills, rocks that cover an entire side of a fairway or behind a green.
