Climbing poles just took on a whole new meaning
What: The glitz of Las Vegas arrives in Toronto with high-flying acrobatic
feats and gravity-defying artistry from Nevada. Turning conventional ideas of
entertainment upside down, daring athletic acrobats climb and bound from pole
to pole 20 feet in the air and a cirque performer dangles from vibrant ribbons
of silk to create a beautiful aerial ballet.

When: Tonight at 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, February 3

Where: In the Toronto Eaton Centre, Albert Street entrance, second level

Why: Dare to forget the weather at the party hosted by the world's coolest
winter city. Toronto's newest winter festival, WinterCity, built on the
foundation of the long-running WinterFest, creates a new tradition of winter
revelry. Running from January 30 - February 12, 2004, this 14-day celebration
gives centre stage to the city's renowned culture, creativity and cuisine. With
stellar free indoor and outdoor programming, the hugely popular prix fixe
