Do Make Say Think (July 25-27)
This weekend, we're drowning ourselves in beer and street meat, discovering Arts & Crafts and music, and peeking through windows.


Beer, food, music and learning doesn’t sound like a bad weekend to us. The Festival of Beer, lovingly known as BeerFest, returns this Friday with 300+ brands of beer samples and performances by K-os, The Trews and Matthew Good. Brewmasters will host home brewing sessions and the grills will be fired up to serve delicious food from local meat vendors. Saturday is sold out so plan to spend your Friday and Sunday with a few brew ha-has. Toronto Standard is hosting a media hour on Sunday from 2:00 to 3:30 pm. Come visit us and say hi. 200 Princes’ Boulevard, July 25-27, 4:30PM $39.50


T&T Waterfront Night Market has evolved into a social event that celebrates street culture and all of the artists, performers, and culinary wizards that make it an experience. Taking place this weekend in its usual grocery store parking lot, this night market is your opportunity to participate in Asian street culture by engaging artists, watching performances and eating street meats that are a rarity in Toronto. 222 Cherry Street, July 25-27, 4PM $3 adult, $2 senior/student, $0.75 child


The Field Trip may be over, but there’s still so much to be discovered on summer vacation and the fine folks at Arts & Crafts are making damn sure that those discoveries have to do with new music. This Thursday night, Grounders, Fresh Snow, Programm, and Friggs play The Garrison as part of Field Trip Discovery Series III. All bands are new-ish, developing local Toronto acts that have passed the Arts & Crafts test and now they’re ready for the rest of the city. RSVP through the Field Trip website to gain entry. The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), July 24, 8PM Free


I know, I know: Christie Pits Film Festival has made the Do Make Say Think list almost every weekend since they premiered with A League of Their Own in June but—baseball pun!—their programming has been knocking it out of the park this summer. This week’s classic film is Hitchcock’s Rear Window, the story of wheelchair bound man, played by Jimmy Stewart, who witnesses a murder while observing the lives of apartment dwellers in an adjacent building. As always, bring blankets and dig deep in your pockets for donations to keep this little film festival going. Christie Pits Park (750 Bloor Street West), July 27, 7:30PM Free
