NOW OPEN! Icewire Makerspace

What you make is only limited by resources, knowledge, and creativity!

We’ve got the resources Desk space and chairs, soldering irons, resistors and capacitors in little drawers, plenty of wires, Lego robotics, 3D printers, desktop computers, we’ve got it all.

All you need to bring is your thinking cap. And a laptop if you prefer your own setup.

What is a makerspace? 

The term makerspace is new and still evolving since every makerspace is unique. For us, it means a place that unlocks potential by providing an optimal environment for creation. In other words, if you have a concept in mind and you walk into a makerspace, you should think, “This is the perfect place to make it!”

At the Icewire Makerspace, you’ll find electronics (hardware and software), robotics, and 3D printing.

The First Annual Leaside #BurgerBattle!!

Let the battle begin!  The first ever Leaside Burger Battle is on!

From August 11 to August 25, 2014

Seven restaurants in the Leaside community will be competing to win the title of ‘Best Leaside Burger.’ The burger competitors are: Against The Grain Urban Tavern, Grilltime, McSorley’s Saloon and Grill, Originals Bar, Shoeless Joe’s, South St. Burger Co., and The Leaside Pub.

Throughout the two week Burger Battle, the community is invited to visit the seven participating restaurants to eat, vote and support their hood. A dollar from every ‘Leaside Burger’ sold will be donated to SickKids Foundation in memory of Georgia Walsh.

Andy Elder, owner of Grilltime in Leaside, came up with the #BurgerBattle as a way to connect the neighbourhood. “Leaside is a tight knit community filled with great families and great restaurants,” said Elder. “The Burger Battle brings the two together for a fun end of summer celebration.”
