After serving up hit songs for years now, Drake is putting his signature flair on a new dish – in the form of restaurant in Toronto. The rapper has teamed up with culinary wizard Susar Lee to open Fring’s, an exclusive eatery in the heart of “the Six,” and shared the good news with his closest friends and family during an intimate bash.
With a “no-pictures” policy in play, guests like Hello! Canada’s fashion and beauty editor Ally Dean did their due diligence via social media, providing play-by-play action of the OVO soiree, including breaking news about the famous faces breaking bread with Canada’s son. While his rumoured girlfriend Serena Williams, who took the red-eye from Los Angeles to support the rapper, mingled with his mom, Sandi, pal Jaden Smith sipped on coconut water while dancing the night away under the watchful eye of Jada Pinkett Smith. And as guests noshed on mini burgers, salmon tartar, vegetarian pastries and aioli-topped fries to the sounds of Drake’s greatest hits, it was clear that the crowds are hungry for more from the new restaurateur.
Up in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood, Suits star Patrick J. Adams left his legal jargon at the door and let his photography do the talking at the recent opening of the 1,800 square foot LUMAS Gallery. The concept gallery, which has locations in Paris, Seoul and Moscow, was buzzing with art aficionados circling a diverse collection of playful and sometimes cheeky creations. Before heading home to rest up for an early call time, Patrick mingled with fellow artist Andrea Bolley, Managing Director of LUMAS Canada Erin Lang, Shinan Govani and his co-star, the stunning Sarah Rafferty.
