What To Do: Let loose and smash sh*t at Toronto's Rage Room

26 Ashwarren Rd., M3J 1Z5

Are you trying to find your zen? Meditation not cutting it? Then perhaps it's time to trade in your yoga mat and pants for armour and a metal bat. Yes, if you've ever wanted to beat the crap out of a printer, a la Office Space, then the Rage Room offers just that.

Where To Go: Toronto Islands Bike Ride

Board the ferries at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, 9 Queens Quay West, M5J 2H3

Toronto is at its best during the summer and if there's one spot that warrants at least one trip, it's The Islands. Centre Island is home to Centreville Amusement Park and is ideal for families. Hanlan's Point is known for its beaches, including clothing-optional spots popular with nudists. Then there's Ward Islands which is a car-free zone, making it perfect for anyone too afraid to bike on Toronto's busy city streets.

What To Eat: Patois' Double Down

794 Dundas St. W. Closed Mondays.

After a day of smashing and biking, you'll probably be a little hungry. Make your way to the city's west end for some Jamaican-Chinese fusion cuisine at Patois. Toronto chef Craig Wong was raised among Jamaica's Chinese population and he's brought the food he grew up with to the city.

Not sure what to get? Bring friends and order the "Whole Shabang," which gives you one of everything from the menu. Or just order the Jamaican Double Down. You can't go wrong with bacon and cheese sandwiched between two cocktail Jamaican patties.
