A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ “Bridge of Spies” is the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

The film is produced by Spielberg, Marc Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Matt Charman and three-time Academy Award winners Ethan Coen & Joel Coen. “Bridge of Spies” will be released in theatres on October 16, 2015.

    Stripping Down Marriage In Mid-Life With Sexy Laundry

    This summer Drayton Entertainment took us through the stages of romantic relationships.

    The journey began with the difficulties of dating in LOOKING, then went on to explain the pressures of getting married in Last Chance Romance and explains what happens when the passion begins to fade in their latest production SEXY LAUNDRY.


    While this two person play is billed as a comedy, the play itself is filled with a lot of heartfelt emotions. It's purspose is to make you laugh, but it also would strike a cord with audience members experiencing their own mid-life marriage crisis.  It shines a light on what actually happens behind closed doors in comparison to what should be taking place in the bedroom.  In this stage performance the couple attempt to create a romantic weekend with help from a Sex For Dummies manual.  While they agree that they are not as passionate as they once were, they to come to see how marriage, work, bills, and kids take a toll on their love life. The characters in Sexy Laundry will resonate with many and will make you feel as if you're laughing at your own circumstances.

    Sexy Laundry promises all of the wit and whimsy of your typical romantic comedy, but also adds an underlying sense of tension, desire, and compassion that will immediately connect with audiences. 
    Regular performance tickets are$42.00 for adults; $25.00 for youth under 20 years of age and groups of 20 or more are $34.00. HST is applicable to all ticket prices.
    Sexy Laundry runs September 8th to December 20th. Tickets can be purchased in person at the
    St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre, online at or by calling the
    Box Office toll free at 1-855-drayton (372-9866).

    See What Happened At #CNE2015 The Canadian National Exhibition

    Lets Go To The Ex

    As summer winds down the Canadian National Exhibition heats things up! We attended the 2015 CNE last weekend and it looks like we were not the only ones.  According to their latest press release attendance increased by 10 percent in 2015. We are always looking for events our readers should attend and we think deciding to Lets Go To The EX is a great choice for a #SundayFunday.

    What To See And Do At The CNE

    Yes there is the excitement of the midway but we enjoy all the sights at the CNE.  We tend to begin our day with a tram ride to get the lay of the land. Then it was time to meet with our friend Hollie aka

    We always plan our day around the ICE SHOW at the Ricoh Coliseum.  It is included in your admission the CNE and it is a great opportunity to see Canadian talent.  This year's Bon Voyage! Aerial Acrobatic & Ice Skating Show performance featured Olympic skaters Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue.  Here's just a clip of their routine.

    In addition to the skating perfomances there were trampoline routines and aerial showstoppers.

    We also took in this year's Art Alley exhibit all about Sherlock Holmes. The Game is Afoot: Consulting Sherlock Holmes
    I was very impressed by the moustache.

    Remember it's time to start your MOVEMBER page! Mine is up at

    After that we took to the food building to fuel up for the afternoon.  Our meal of choice happened to be POUTINE BALLS!

    Then we headed to the Arts and Crafts area to find THE BIG BANG THEORY: The International Art Exhibit.

    We decided it was time for a break so we grab some refreshments and say cheers to summer one more time as Hollie was headed to see Dallas Smith and we were headed to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.

    While we starting to make our way to the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre we noticed that the RUSH Parkour show was about to begin.  We quickly grabbed a great spot and we cheered the perfomers of this great show!

    Oh and I almost forgot to mention, the AIR SHOW was going on the whole time during our visit.

    Off To See Amy Schumer At Oddball Fest

    While the shows at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre are an additional cost, for out of towners like us it is a great opportunity to make the trip to Toronto a full day event (with only having to park once for the full day).  This year we took in Funny or Die's ODDBALL COMEDY AND CURIOSTIY FESTIVAL Featuring Amy Schumer and Aziz Ansari.

    As you can see by the lineup we had a ton of laughs that evening! 

    You know what's nice? Canadians. You know what else is nice? The set times for #OddballFest in Toronto this weekend. Aw.
