Welcome, Tofino Box
For awhile I had a "What's Going On" sidebar on this blog, but it took far too much time to update. The Tofino Time site lists event, but now there is an even-more-up-to-the-minute site, Tofino Box.
Tofino Box is extremely comprehensive, with classifieds (jobs, places to rent, stuff for sale), events (from garage sales and knitting classes to foodie events and market days), music listings (live, open mics, karaoke and more), and "Healing Arts, Getting Yogic & Sportin' Sweatpants, which is pretty self-explanatory. It's easy to post on and troll through, so take a look if you're ever tempted to ask a Tofitian "What do you do in this town?" - a question that never ceases to amaze me. There is SO MUCH to do here.
And, of course, there is also a physical Tofino Box, which is a nice gift for visitors wanting a taste of Tofino.
My favourite thing on the site, though, is the revolving text on a non-active button, with things only insiders will "get," like "Turtle for Mayor," "Give up the kibble and everything will be cool," (from the Co-op cats), and "That's not John Travolta's house."
Good work, Tofino Box! "Open the box, get the local goods."
