Underground dance party coming to Honest Ed's
Want to party underground at Honest Ed's? Opportunities are few and far between, so mark this Friday on your calendar. Local charitable party bookers Dudebox have been given blessing to use this treat of a space for a massive party featuring DJs, $5 drinks, and uh, dudely party vibes.
Even with a storied history of booking in unusual venues like Crossfit gyms (yes, they moved all the weights somehow) and car washes, this will be something special for the group of friends behind Dudebox, who say they will reach their long-term goal of raising $100,000 this summer - and they don't intend to retire.
Partnering with Rob Dyer of Skate 4 Cancer, 80% of funds from this party will go to Cancer charity Wellspring. Dan Tal of Dudebox has also revealed that August 15th will mark a new chapter for the company - a foray into the fashion world. And the talk show world?
"Dudebox will be launching DDBX in the next month. Hats. Shirts. Scented Candles. Interviews on Ellen. It's all happening. Funds will be reinvested into our social enterprise 'cause we wanna make charity our job instead of working 60 hours a week in restaurants for a living, and another 20 a week on Dudebox for free."
Toronto needs more wicked rumours flying around, so how about we start saying Ellen will be at Honest Ed's this Friday. By the time a condo goes up in the Ed's space, we'll be saying we took shots with her at the bar. Legends, let's make legends. For cancer.
