Happy New Year!

Although I had many tests — you can’t have a testimony without a test — I would like to thank you for your continuous support of On the town with Toni.

I kicked off my new year celebrating at the gym. I’m not one for resolutions, but I look forward to another year, and hopefully a better me.

Keep your eyes open for upcoming  changes in 2018 with Qcitymetro! Meanwhile, get out the town this cold, cold weekend and enjoy yourself.

Here are my weekend picks.


Kevin Jones Experience ~ Join guest vocalist Kevin Jones, keyboard player Rico Tyler and guitarist Carmello for an evening of grown-folk music. If you enjoy the smooth sounds of George Benson, Johnny Mathis and Luther, you will definitely want to attend this event at Sydney’s Martini and Wine Bar.
