The Monday-night opening party had an otherwise quiet Kensington a-buzz as crowds ate, drank, mingled, and took in performances by the always fabulous, Ryan G Hinds, Toronto's new all-male burlesque troupe, Boylesque (with a hilarious Mormon intruder routine), and DJ Craig Dominic tying it all together behind the turntables.
