Every Monday, #OnTheFourthFloor rounds up the events to check out this week, keeping you in the loop with what’s going on in the city.
With so many talented photographers posting daily on Instagram, sometimes it’s hard to remember that it wasn’t always like that. The photographs of Allen Ginsberg take you back to a time when photography was an emerging art, and Ginsberg was candidly capturing the development of the Beat literary movement. Whether you want to travel to another time, or just see fantastic photographs, this free exhibit is the one for you.

Tuesday, January 30: Crown + Bliss Workshop: Simplify Your Stuff
Usually we leave our decluttering and purging of our wardrobes until spring cleaning comes around, but Crown + Bliss is offering a workshop to not only simplify our clothing choices, but also our lives. Lead by Clare Kumar, a thoughtful productivity coach and professional organizer, this workshop will teach participants how to restructure their closets. Afterwards, participants can take part in a clothing swap, or donate their pre-loved items directly to Sistering.

Saturday, February 3: Coldest Day of the Year Ride 2018
Let’s be honest, “Coldest Day of the Year” in the title of any event is really not that inviting… but we promise this is a good one! Cycle Toronto is hosting their annual “Coldest Day of the Year Ride” – the perfect excuse to get out of hibernation and get moving. The ride is only about an hour through our beautiful city, and then riders have the chance to socialize with fellow bikers with a warm drink. Bundle up, and let’s ride!
