More on Joe Carter:

This Canadian Sports icon was drafted 2nd overall by the Chicago Cubs in 1981 after being named the Sporting NewsCollege Baseball player of the year. Over a 16 year MLB career he amassed over 2000 hits and almost 400 home runs playing for six teams including the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, San Diego Padres, Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants. He was a 5-Time All-Star, 2-Time Silver Slugger and 2-Time World Series Champion and will forever  be remembered for his famous game winning walk-off home run in Game 6 to win the World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993. He is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays Level of Excellence and was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003

More on Robbie Alomar:

Roberto is the only baseball player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a Toronto Blue Jay™. His career 17-year career, included 12-time All-Star appearances and 10 Gold Glove Awards.

For most of his career, the only time the word “second” appeared in the same sentence as Roberto Alomar was when someone was describing his position in the field. At the plate, with the leather or in the final standings, Alomar was usually on top.

Born Feb. 5, 1968 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, Alomar had baseball in his blood. His father, Sandy Alomar Sr., was an All-Star second baseman in his 15-year major league career. Like his father, Roberto played second, threw right-handed and switch-hit. Alomar’s brother, Sandy, Jr., also made it to the big leagues as a catcher.

At 18, Roberto Alomar signed with the San Diego Padres and won the California League batting title in his second year in the minors with a .346 batting average. By 1988, he was with the parent club, making a splash with his defense and speed and finishing fifth in National League Rookie of the Year voting. He earned his first All-Star selection in 1990.

Following that season, Alomar was traded to Toronto – where his offense took off. Alomar raised his average over .300, helping the Blue Jays to back-to-back World Series titles in 1992-1993 while finishing in third in the AL batting title race in 1993. He hit a combined .354 in four postseason series in those two championship seasons.

“Everybody can see the skills on the field,” said teammate Dave Winfield, himself a Hall of Famer. “He’s acrobatic, flamboyant, he’s got his style.”

Following the 1995 season, Alomar signed with the Baltimore Orioles. Forming a Hall of Fame double-play combination with Cal Ripken Jr., helped his team get back to the playoffs – advancing to the ALCS in 1996 and 1997. Following the 1998 season, Alomar signed with the Cleveland Indians and played with his brother Sandy for the first time.

“He reminds me of some of the great players that I’ve played with, who seem like they write their own script,” said Davey Johnson, who managed Alomar with the Orioles. “Frank Robinson’s one, Henry Aaron was the other.”

Alomar was traded to the Mets in 2002 before later stops with the White Sox and Diamondbacks. He retired after the 2004 season. In 17 major league seasons, Alomar tallied 2,724 hits, 210 home runs, 1,134 RBI, a .300 batting average and .984 fielding percentage. He made 12 consecutive All-Star appearances.

Style & Grooming, Food & Drink, Health & Wellness, Guest Speakers and Live Demos. Don’t ya dare miss it! Now, on to the list…

Whitley Neill

Yes, we are getting quite a reputation for having an incredible selection on cocktails at our event. Yes, we are ‘OK’ with this. Yes, we will be showcasing a number of bevvys this year; like Whitley Neill Gin. Inspired by Africa and handcrafted in England. It’s a balanced Dry Gin; that blends classic gin botanicals with exotic African essences to create a blend with a flavour as unique as its heritage. Make sure you look out for Whitley Neill from Nov 24-25 at the MTCC North Building.

Gentlemen Of The North

GOTN is what happens when two stylish gents want to create a line of cool clothing and top notch accessories. We can’t wait to check out their latest line of Headwear at TGE2017. It’s made for Canadian winters by people who have actually experienced Canadian winters. Oh, and also ask them about the Gentlemen Of The North ‘sock of the month’ club. You’ll be glad you did.

Track & Field / Bangarang

Track & Field Bar is one of our favourite places. We love the bocce. We love the shuffleboard. We love their staff. Sonaturally, we totally freaked out when we heard they have opened a new bar, ‘Bangarang’, on College St.  We asked them (ok, so we begged them) to come to our show. They agreed. They will be at #TGE2017… and they will be bringing the games. Expect shuffleboard and cornhole… and good times.

6ix Man Grooming

We know that taking care of your beard is no joke. This is serious business. 6ix Man is a start-up in the field of cosmeticsfocusing on mens grooming. They define a 6ix Man as “A classically modern man. Regardless of what he is doing, he always looks good.” Does that sound like you? I bet it does. Beard oils, balms, combs and everything you need to keep your beard fresh. That’s 6ix Man.

Shirt Studs

What can we say about Shirt Studs… Theses trailblazers are always pushing the boundaries of what’s next in men’s style accessories. Mixed media, 3D printing and beyond.

5 Reasons To Come To #TGE2017

GentlemenExpo2016_057

5 Reasons To Come To #TGE2016 from November 24-25, 2017 at MTCC North Building.

5) You’ll Learn Something. Walking thru #TGE2017 will be like walking thru your favourite men’s magazine. We hand pick our exhibitors. We want the most knowledgable people on the most relevant topics to be there for you. Subject matter experts: whether it’s suiting, grooming, drinks or pretty much anything related to the #BeBetter lifestyle. Strike up a conversation and you will not be disappointed.

4) Your Next Favourite Drink. Bartenders & Mixologists will be live and present each and every day. Yes, you may be amazed at some of the bottle flipping, but go a little deeper and you’ll be sure to see your favourite cocktail being made. Or maybe it’s your ‘next’ fav cocktail. Watch, learn, sample … and make sure you take away some pointers for making it yourself.

3) Like-Minded People. One thing you can guarantee at #TGE2017 is that you’ll be surrounded by like-minded people. We may all have a different style or a unique look, but one thread that connects us all is that we want to #BeBetter. The vibe on the floor is so cool, because every single gentleman or gentlewoman shares this common goal. Listen, learn, participate. Be sure to talk to people. Strangers will become friends. The experience of #TGE2017 is like nothing else.

2) Shopping. You’ll be surrounded by clothes, footwear, gear, and accessories. Get fitted for that custom suit. Try on those new boots. Add a tie-bar, leather bracelet and a maybe a new scarf. You may even leave with a whole new look. Make sure you take pictures of your purchases and tag them #BeBetter and #TGE2017.

1) #BeBetter. It’s what we preach. It could be as simple a new pomade for your hair or as large as solving world issues. Just by coming to #TGE2017 you have already taken the right step – and we thank you. We encourage you to try and sample as much as you can over the course of our two day event (Nov 24-25) and then put everything you soak up into practice in your life.
