With the city on lockdown during this holiday season, it’s been hard finding fun, festive things to do. I love this time of year because of all the cute outdoor activities, so I was so excited when I was invited to check out Sweaters n’ Snowflakes!
Sweaters n’ Snowflakes is a holiday pop up located at 621 Richmond St, Toronto, on the corner of Bathurst and Richmond. The completely outdoor experience features a whole bunch of delicious food, holiday alcoholic favourites, and a ton of photo opportunities.
How it works:
Everything is super safe and socially distanced. Masks are required at all times which is strictly enforced. No seriously, I wasn’t even allowed to take pictures without one. All the food and beverages are to go, which we happily ate and drank in the car. As mentioned above, there are a ton of photo opportunities, including two lighted tunnels and even a love locks wall, perfect for a cute date night! We really appreciated all the efforts they made to still making it a magical experience, all while taking safety precautions very seriously.
The Food & Drinks:
We tried the wood fired holiday Bianca pizza, the Nutella hot chocolate and the surprise menu item – Gingerbread Maple Cinnamon Salted Caramel Marshmallow Fries! Trust me, they tasted just as good as they sound. We were both really impressed with the food, everything was super tasty and you can tell that they used quality ingredients in everything. We were unable to try any of the alcoholic beverages because they didn’t have the to-go jars ready for that portion of the event yet, but they will be available for tomorrow’s opening day.
Overall it was a really fun experience, and the perfect excuse to get some much needed fresh air over this lockdown. The pop up runs from December 10th – 27th (including Christmas day), so go ahead and pick up your zoom call Christmas dinner, its the perfect excuse not to cook!
