Do Make Say Think (July 4-6)
Do Make Say Think is Toronto Standard's themed weekend preview. Find things to do, things to make, things to say and things to think.


Sam Roberts, Beirut, Violent Femmes, July Talk, Hollerado, Born Ruffians, Gary Clark Jr., and Jeff Tweedy are a sample of the folk, roots, and blues bands that will gather at Fort York for the Toronto Urban Roots Festival this weekend. This three-day festival is sure to be a sea of flower crowns and long hairs. Tickets are available through Ticketfly. Fort York (250 Fort York Blvd.), July 4-6, 2014, $149.50


The Leslieville Flea is one of Toronto’s quietest kept secrets, which is exactly why it’s worth checking out. Rifle through antiques and vintage and retro finds where others may not think to look. If you can’t make it out to the non-Leslieville location this Sunday, check out their online auction, which is pretty rad and progressive of the organizers to put on. Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay West), July 6, 2014, Free


Satisfy your inner food critic by visiting the city’s best restaurants during Summerlicious. Launching today, this Toronto-wide festival of food is one of the few opportunities to try expensive, gourmet and rare restaurants that are typically a two-hour wait. Over 200 restaurants are opening their doors with reasonably priced, indulgent menus. Word to the wise—make reservations. Locations and prices vary, July 4-20


Baseball uniforms are welcomed at the park this weekend for the opening screening at the Christie Pits Film Festival. A League of Their Own is this Sunday’s film, and, in addition to the screening, there will be prizes for the best topical costumes. Bring your own blanket and arrive before sundown for the best spot on the hill. Christie Pits Park (750 Bloor St. West), July 6, 2014, Free
