1. Steve McQueen’s Mustang from Bullitt has finally come out of hiding
“Steve McQueen made one last effort to buy his favourite Mustang in 1977. He sent a letter, typed on a single piece of heavy off-white vellum, to the car’s owner in New Jersey. The logo for his movie company, Solar Productions, was embossed in the upper left corner and opposite that resided the date, December 14, 1977. The letter is just four sentences.
“Unlike most cinematic chases that feature cars performing impossible feats, the one from Bullitt was every bit as exciting, but the driving was obviously real. Those who know cars knew. It’s 10 minutes of film nirvana. McQueen wanted the Bullitt Mustang back.”

4. What to look for on the menu at Drake’s newest restaurant Pick 6ix
“The 178-seat restaurant at 33 Yonge St., where LeBron James hosted a birthday bash for Cleveland Cavaliers player Dwyane Wade last week, is a partnership between Drake’s OVO label and Chopped Canada chef Antonio Park’s restaurant group.
“It’s something affordable for everyone and I want to provide for families and couples who wouldn’t normally go to a sports bar. You don’t have to eat chicken wings and fries, I wanted to create something healthier and have a proper, sit-down meal that goes from Mediterranean-style, steaks, sushi, Latin to Korean.”
