Surf the rainbow
Today (Thursday, August 25) from noon until sundown, Over the Rainbow (101 Yorkville) celebrates the launch of its website (www.rainbowjeans.com) by offering free movie passes, the chance to win one of two Triple Five Soul shopping sprees worth $1,000 (register online pronto; the final draw is today), or you can guesstimate how many jujubes are in owner Joel's jar for a $50 prize pack. 416-967-7448.
If bidding on antique furniture, clothing and jewellery amid a sea of burlesque beauties and pumped-up strongmen turns your crank, I suggest you make it out to vintage heaven Melanie's Closet (146 Brock) on Saturday (August 27) from 2 to 6 pm for the Burlesque Auction. In the lot next to the building, you'll find the abovementioned, plus tunes and BBQ. The auction starts at 3 pm, and later in the evening there's the big Brockstock party for further debauchery. 416-532-4231.
Multi-taskers will love this one.
