Mill Street six
Toast the (alleged) arrival of summer sunshine with Mill Street's Summer Seasonal Sampler. Hitting LCBO shelves the first week of May, the six-pack includes 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager, Belgian Cherry IPA (a British-style IPA that sees the world through fruity Belgian beer-tinted glasses) and Mill Street Palomar Ale (a Mexican-style mid-amber flavoured with chipotle and lime).
Speakeasy goes big
Speakeasy 21 (21 Adelaide West, 416-601-0210, speakeasy21.com, @speakeasy21), a gigantic cocktail bar (how's that for an oxymoron?) with an equally gigantic patio in the works, is now open in the financial district. Cocktails have officially invaded every nook of the city, including Scotiabank Plaza.
