Things To Do in Toronto this Week: November 7th - 11th

The Leafs are back in the win column, after dispatching of the Boston Bruins 2-1 last night (Matthews with two goals, let’s go!), the Raptors are 4-2 in their last 6 after a disappointing start, and the Argonauts are first in their conference and are getting ready for their Division Finals game next Sunday. It seems like things are picking up for Toronto sports teams after poor performances from the Toronto FC and the Blue Jays (let’s not talk about it)! While they’re winners, you can be one too, as you can have a great week with our selection of things to do this week!
