Overheard Nuit Blanche 2014

Overheard at Nuit Blanche 2014

What you over heard at Nuit Blanche last Saturday likely depended where you were - just kidding, there's a 98% chance you heard someone say "is that art?" My own "is that art" experience happened at Fort York and turned out to be the line for the public washroom, but the only #OH that might have produced was my friend and I giggling, momentarily amused after a long stretch of boredom (Fort York was largely underwhelming).

After Doug Ford opened Nuit Blanche in Rob's place (which not everyone is too pleased about) the mad scramble in the cold (y'all know it's going to get way colder, right?) in search of transformative art pieces, food trucks, and phone charging stations began. And the eavesdropping, which might be our favourite part of the whole light installation free-for-all. And the getting man-handled by cops for crossing the street. Art!

Here are your best overheards from Saturday night, and a few of ours.
