Canine Lovers Rejoice – Woofstock is Happening this Weekend!

The same way Victoria Day long weekend marks the beginning of summer for us, Woofstock is the canine equivalent. Thousands of dogs, of all shapes and sizes, gather by St. Lawrence Market area, and celebrate the arrival of nice weather and longer walks. We know our office doggies, Gordie and Dexter, are super excited, and the best part is that they don’t even know what’s coming!

For the many wonderful exhibitors and sponsors we wanted to share some awesome promotional products that are sure to turn this year’s event into a memorable one.

1. Doggie Bandana
A great way to display your logo, on a wearable fashion piece. Bandanas can be screen printed on, based on the design of your choosing. A wonderful giveaway that is sure to make both dogs, and owners happy.

2. Reusable Bags
If you are selling and/or giving away items, make sure to provide the customer with a branded reusable bag. A great canvas to put your logo on, a reusable bag is sure to be used again in the future, and remind the customer of your brand.

3. Waste Bag Dispenser
A unique item that is sure to be used over and over again. A thoughtful giveaway that any dog owner will appreciate, waste bag dispensers come in a variety of colours and can have any logo printed on them.

Whether you are preparing for the upcoming festivities, or looking into ideas for the next upcoming festival and/or event, we can help you plan the best custom product assortment. Contact us for a quote and to find out about other products.

Enjoy Woofstock this upcoming weekend, and stay hydrated!

Historic Win for Mayor Ford – Hero Burgers Restaurant to Open in Nathan Phillips Square

This Wednesday, April 3, Mayor Ford had won the bid to put a Hero Certified Burgers restaurant in Nathan Phillips Square, directly beside the Toronto City Hall. It seems that instead of the question being whether there should be a restaurant at that location to begin with, the councillors were arguing what TYPE of restaurant should be erected in that spot for the next five years.

Many argued that a burger chain is not indicative of the multicultural diversity that is such a significant part of Toronto’s culture. Were they saying, in more or less words, that a burger and fries is too ‘white’ to be representative of the City of Toronto? Their argument mainly relied on the idea that a restaurant should offer a larger selection of foods and cater to the wider Canadian market.

I however would argue that Hero Burgers is a great choice. It is a successful Canadian franchise which had started out in the heart of Toronto, in Yorkville. Its menu offerings go beyond the ordinary burger and fries joint with choices ranging from zuchinni relish, to mango sauce, sure to satisfy any taste palette. It’s a well recognized name, with a great reputation. The company is extremely involved in the community, SickKids Foundation and MultiSport are only a few of the causes. What can be more Torontonian than that?

Putting the argument aside, should the question not be whether there is a need for a restaurant in Nathan Phillips Square at all? Are the food trucks parked on Queen St. and the newly renovated food court at the Eaton Centre no longer sufficient lunch options?

If you had a chance to vote, what kind of restaurant or business would you like to see in Nathan Phillips Square? Would you wear a “Ford for Hero” or “No Ford, No Hero” T-shirt?
