The proprietor of 785 Queen St. West - Monte Wan of Khao San Road - has been playing with our hearts for a long, long time. But it looks like he's finally willing to make a bold step toward commitment - by opening up the space for one shining afternoon and letting people actually consume food there.

Want one? We're giving away boxes to five lucky winners. Just enter our contest here or head on over to fordflakes.ca to buy your own box. The collector's item isn't cheap ($40 a box) but $20 from each sale will be donated to cancer research (if all 500 boxes sell out that will be a $10,000 donation). Plus, the box was designed by Brian Romero, the same guy who designed the Obamo O's for Airbnb.
Here's how it works: Several bars have volunteered to host free happy-hour events on days advance polls are open (October 14 to 19), offering inexpensive apps and beer. (Take note: You don't have to have voted to swing by, and the events are non-partisan - voters of all political stripes are welcome.) A few restaurants and bars, including Rock Lobster, Dog & Bear, Cadillac Lounge, and Le Petit Castor, have already signed on to serve this Wednesday and Thursday, with more expected to sign on in the next day or so.
