Posted by Phil Villeneuve / August 16, 2016

toronto rooftop concertToronto is getting a unique rooftop concert and party later this month. On August 26 starting at at 9 p.m.,you can be among those who crowd the rooftop just behind the Pizza Pizza at Queen and Lisgar. Climb up the residential rooftop, cough up $10 and kick back with beer from Kensington Brewing Company and music from some great local songwriters.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The show has now been canceled. There have been quite a few comments/accusations that we were in the wrong for promoting this event. To be clear, we initially heard about the event when it was being promoted on Facebook. We reached out to one of the organizers for more details. The organizer sent us the details and also the above photo to be used in this article. The accusation that somehow the organizers were not aware that we were going to write about the event OR did not want us to write about the event does not measure up to the facts.

There's no Toronto party like a Sunnyside party

Posted by Phil Villeneuve / August 12, 2016

sunnyside torontoPicture sunny Venice Beach, California. All the boardwalk babes and muscle heads have finished flexing and guzzling protein shakes and they're ready to dance. On the beach, there's a palace with beautiful awnings, passages, flowing plant life, and a giant pool next door. It's like a mirage, like a living Beach Boys video on creatine. It's like walking through the gates of summer heaven.

Now picture this in Toronto, tone down the babes and beasts and muscle enhancers, and add some mind blowing dance music.
