Weekend in Oshawa - College Edition

Hey students! It's time to put your Introduction to Chemistry 101 textbook down and give your eyes a break. Recognizing your studies are dominating your life right now, I've taken the liberty of planning your weekend for you! Aren't I just the sweetest?

Friday night:


Grab your besties and blast your weekend into full gear with a trip to the Tribute Community Centre to cheer on the Oshawa Generals, catch a concert, or grab a bite to eat at Prospects Bar & Grill.

The Tribute Centre has been host to artists like Elton John, KISS, the Tragically Hip, Selena Gomez and more. Be the social coordinator in your circle and bookmark the Tribute Community Centre event calendar to be in the know about upcoming games, concerts and events.

Saturday morning:


Coffee is not optional, you are a college student, caffeine should now be your lifeblood! And, hey, a good cuppa joe is the best way to seize the day in this action-packed weekend I have so graciously planned for you.

The next stop on our weekend adventure is Isabella's Café. Not only do they make an exceptional java, but their baked goods are to die for. DO NOT LEAVE without purchasing one of their brown butter chocolate chip cookies. Just trust me. Follow them on Instagram for some serious cake love.

Saturday afternoon:


There is no better way to spend your Saturday afternoon than by nerd-ing out at Brew Wizards Café! Grab a pint of your favourite beer (there are over 15 on tap) or a bottomless mug of Deadly Grounds coffee, and then pull up a chair and let the games begin. Boasting over 300 board games including classics like Monopoly, Risk, and Scattegories, Brews has something for you. Don't know the rules? Don't worry, Pat, the in-house Game Master is available to school you.

Saturday night:

JUNCTION NIGHTCLUB The only place to be on Saturday night is Junction Nightclub. Period. End of Story. Get your dance on, lounge out at the piano bar, shoot some pool, or feel the vibes with live acoustic performances. Junction Nightclub offers a variety of bars and concepts spread out over two spacious floors of Saturday night fun times. Junction has something for everyone... everyone 19+ that is.

Not yet 19? Don't worry, I've got you.


Grab your roommates and head over to NEBS for a round of Cosmic Bowling! You won't strike out (or maybe you will)!

NEBS is one of the best-kept secrets in the 'Shwa! With bowling, an enormous arcade, virtual reality, go-carts, and even carnival-style rides - NEBs makes for the perfect Saturday evening adventure.

Sunday afternoon:


After that exciting weekend, I thought I'd let you sleep in. You're welcome. Now get up, it's time for brunch! You're a college student so it's imperative that you eat Sunday brunch at a greasy spoon, and the Rainbow Family Restaurant is the greasiest spoon in the 'Shwa.

This downtown Oshawa landmark has all of the traditional breakfast items you need! Looking for a menu recommendation - try the Rainbow P.C.S.

Sunday evening:

That's enough fun for you, get back to work slacker!
