What's Open Victoria Day Long Weekend?

The official kick-off of summer arrives tomorrow: The May Two-Four Long Weekend!   Somehow the weather gods have smiled upon us and we can look forward to lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.  What more can we ask for after a long, gloomy winter? 

Where I WISH I were going...
I hope you have excellent plans involving cottages or backyard bbq's and glasses of your favourite drink!  This photo on the left is where I'm headed... in my dreams, of course (or if I win Friday night's $50 Million Lotto Max jackpot).  Despite the insane 3-5 hour drives up Hwy's 400 and 69 when I was a kid, I really miss my cottage days north of Parry Sound.  Such good times!
If you haven't yet gotten your supplies - whether they're food, alcohol, or a new sundress - here are the details on what is open on the long weekend.  Plan accordingly!

LCBO: all stores closed on Victoria Day, Monday May 21st.
