Two for Tuesday
Skip the cheap movie date and get creative with your time management. Until the end of the summer, Nefara Natural Therapies (646 Broadview) is offering a chillaxing two-for-one deal every Tuesday. This is a great chance to reconnect with friends and/or yourself. Hey, a little pampering never hurt - unless you count Swedish massage. www.nefara.com. 416-406-0886.
There's one upside to the nasty construction monopolizing College Street - no, not the construction workers. It's Sim & Jones 's (388 College) Construction Sale. Now's the time to save up to 40 per cent on select locally designed items. The sale runs to the end of August, so walk or bike - just get there. Closed Monday.
