Toronto Unlocked: Doors Open May 28-29

I have always been the type of person that likes to explore “behind the scenes”  Whether it be at concerts, galleries, movies, designer’s studios, restaurants – you name it.  Somehow, getting access to places generally off limits adds a level of intrigue, excitement and discovery.

Once a year, the City of  Toronto hosts a free event called Doors Open.  150 buildings of architectural, cultural or historical significance open their doors to the public.

From Canada’s National Ballet School to the City TV and Rogers Studios, the Diamond & Schmidt Architects Inc. Ellis Building to the Gooderham Flatiron Building, Steam Whistle Brewing John Street Roundhouse to the McKinsey & Company Offices and the Redpath Sugar Refinery to The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) Greenwood Maintenance shop  – just to name a few.

So put on your walking shoes, and take your 2-day key to the city and explore!

Date:  Saturday May 28 and Sunday May 29th, 2010

Admission:  Free
