Best of the Blog: Our Sweet Sixteen of 2016

Posted by Drake, December 30, 2016

A Month of Giving

Say what you will about 2016, it’s been one heck of a year. Love it or hate it, this year is riding off into the sunset leaving behind such winners as #summersixteen, Lemonade, Instagram stories, and a Royal Baby – just to name a few. Now, let’s see if you were paying attention. We’ve had a few of our own highlights in our latest trip around the sun with Drake Yoga in the Underground, Drake Art bringing the eye candy to WayHome, guest-chef pop-ups with culinary greats from Newfoundland, Montreal + Los Angeles, a traveling hotel in a Drake-d out Airstream trailer, a quick drop-in from Anthony Bourdain, and a PRIDE party that shook Queen West – yeah, just to name a few. But it was the intimate moments in the nooks + crannies Drake-wide, from wisdom shared over beers and love found in photobooths to family getaways and familiar Drake faces. With the help of guest editor Jen McNeely, we’ve time capsuled these moments on the Drake Blog so check out our sweet sixteen of 2016.
