This weekend is NBA All-Star weekend. The weekend begins on Saturday with a slam dunk contest and a three-point shootout. Some of the biggest players in NBA history will be in Toronto – big names include the likes of Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and our own Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors (this is his second All-Star performance).
Like many big events in Toronto, the All-Star Weekend will likely lead to traffic jams. With a strike being proposed by taxi drivers, things could get ugly. Luckily, the taxi strike has been at least postponed, making things easier for Toronto’s residents.
In any case, plan well in advance if you want to hit the town. Of course, if you want to stay in the comfort of your own home, now’s a good weekend to avoid the hustle and bustle of Toronto’s busy streets. Just ensure your heating and hot water are working before the weekend because HVAC companies are going to be slower at getting to clients’ homes in light of the traffic issue.
