Summer’s in full-swing: what TL Insiders have to look forward to this July

While restaurant patios and weekend trips to the beach may look a little different this summer, here at Toronto Life, we’re doing what we can to help keep you cool. For the month of July, all TL Insiders will receive free delivery through the TL x Runner Storefront. With Toronto Life’s curated favourites from the LCBO delivered straight to your front door, you’ll have everything you need to sit back and enjoy our wide variety of events planned for Insiders this month. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the exciting events happening in the weeks to come.
