It’s truly a gift to have wonderful friends and it’s important to take the time to nurture your relationships and enjoy each others company away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

There are many experiences that you can choose from when searching for a perfect Girlfriend Getaway, but first you should ask yourselves what type of an adventure are you looking for:

Relaxing by a pool
Spa going
Wine-tasting
Shopping
Outdoor Adventure and exploring
Yoga Retreats
Cocktail Celebrations

There are endless choices for that long awaited getaway with your girlfriends. So grab the girls and pick a date! Friends are nurturing and feed our soul, leaving us energized and inspired to take on the world.

Did you know that July 30 is International Friendship Day, a time to recognize your friends and their contribution to your life. Friends come in many different shapes, sizes and guises: school friends, work colleagues, siblings, partners, parents, pets and neighbours. Pull out all the stops and let your friends know they are truly appreciated on International Friendship Day!

The Old Mill Toronto celebrates friendship with The Girls Great Escape.  This unique weekend exposes you and your girlfriends to unique workshops, wonderful food, wine tastings, Luxury room accommodations and spa services. Every Escape is different from the next and many of the girls come back to try out new experiences.

If a getaway is not in the cards for you at this time, why not spend time with the girls at home. Catch up over some take out, enjoy the beverage of choice and watch a good friendship movie like; Fried Green Tomatoes, First Wives Club, An officer and a Gentleman and of course Beaches with Bette Midler…make sure to have a kleenex on hand though when she sings Wind Beneath My Wings!

The best of friends can change a frown into a smile when you feel down. The best of friends will understand your little trials and lend a hand.  The best of friends will always share your secret dreams because they care.  The best of friends are worth more then gold, they give all the love a heart can hold.



Jazz in The City

 

Live Jazz in Toronto has changed immensely in recent years. The abundance of high level talent has grown, providing awesome quality, diversity and exciting creativity.

In a city rich in jazz – where the best of the best from all over the world are showcased during the annual Toronto Jazz Festival, a musical extravaganza that resonates from outdoor stages, concert halls, and more than 40 jazz clubs and lounges for ten glorious summer days; where later in July, the Beaches International Jazz Festival powers up its annual salute to jazz in all its variations on the streets and outdoor stages throughout the city’s east end; the proud home to JAZZ.FM91, one of North America’s only 24-hour all-jazz radio stations, which provides unceasing support for emerging and established artists on air, in festivals, and in live jazz club performance; and some of the most hallowed concert halls and theatres in the world – The Home Smith Bar at The Old Mill takes pride in the prominent place it has consistently occupied for the past several years as a year ‘round participant in Toronto’s vibrant jazz community.

The jazziest weekends always begin at The Home Smith Bar (often long before the week actually ends) where the best performers on the Toronto jazz club scene entertain in the up-close-and-personal warmth of one of the city’s best-loved jazz lounges. From January through December, you’re invited to enjoy a continuous line-up of the leading singers and instrumentalists performing for your jazz-loving pleasure in formats ranging from solo presentations to duos, trios, and quartets…and often, gathering together around the baby grand piano to celebrate that music with a Jazz Party.

It’s guaranteed to get things off to a swinging start!
