Walk Food September 3, Saturday, 12:30pm. Free. Toronto Vegan Meetup (torontovegan) - Walk the Don Valley, Taylor Massey Creek, Warden Woods, & Dinner at Ital Vital.
Quote: "Join us for a 13.3 km, approximately 3 1/2 - 4hr walk through the trails under the Don Valley and through the east end ravines. We will start at Playter Gardens, which is less than a minute's walk from Broadview station. From there, we'll head up to Pottery Road and down into the ravines, not coming back up to surface roads until we cross Victoria Park. Once in Scarborough, we'll continue through Warden Woods, again below the surface roads, until finally coming back up at Warden and St. Clair. There is a subway station at this intersection, so folks who want to head out from here will have no problem! The last 20 min (2km) of the walk will be to our dinner destination- Ital Vital! For those who have never been, it is easily one of the best vegan spots in the GTA. It's cash only, and a small plate (big enough for even a voracious eater like myself) will cost you $10.30. They also have fresh juices and other treats. They do not take reservations, and there is not a lot of seating in the restaurant, so there is a chance that we'll have to take our food back outside and find a place to eat. But, hopefully, this won't be the case. From there, it's a short walk (5 min) over to Victoria Park, where you can easily catch the bus back down to Victoria Park subway station.."

It's in our DNA. It's how we got our big brains. Yet others, including Pythagoras in the 6th century BC, and even Dr. Frankenstein's "monster", have argued that eating meat is bad for our bodies, cruel to animals, and toxic to the planet. Now -- perhaps more than ever -- clear-cut answers can be hard to come by when it comes to the matter of meat. Contributor Kevin Ball serves up the arguments."

Canadian Maple Leaf History October 10, Monday. Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Quote: "Long ago, before the first Europeans arrived in North America, the farmers in Europe held celebrations at harvest time. To give thanks for their good fortune and the abundance of food, the farm workers filled a curved goat's horn with fruit and grain. This symbol was called a cornucopia or horn of plenty. When they came to Canada they brought this tradition with them. In the year 1578, the English navigator Martin Frobisher held a formal ceremony, in what is now called Newfoundland, to give thanks for surviving the long journey. He was later knighted and had an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean in northern Canada named after him - Frobisher Bay. Other settlers arrived and continued these ceremonies." http://www.craigmarlatt.com/canada/symbols_facts&lists/thanksgiving.html

History October 31, Monday. Halloween. Quote: "The druids believed that witches, demons, and spirits of the dead roamed the earth on the eve of November 1. Bonfires were lit to drive the bad spirits away. To protect themselves further from the mean tricks of the bad spirits, the druids offered them good things to eat. They also disguised themselves so that the spirits would think the druids belonged to their own evil company. Surely the spirits would not harm members of their own group! Or so the druids thought. And thus we celebrate Hallowe'en by playing trick or treat, dressing up in cortumes, and wearing masks. The name Hallowe'en is Scottish in origin and is short for "All Hallow's Eve," the night before "All Hallow's Day," or All Saint's Day. That day was set by Pope Boniface IV to honour the Catholic saints, and also to replace a Roman pagan festival of the dead which had been held in late February, the end of the old Roman year." http://www.craigmarlatt.com/canada/symbols_facts&lists/halloween.html
