Toronto block party

Toronto block party actually a massive bait & switch job

Remember that wicked block party all your friends clicked attending on via Facebook? It was only in your feed like, four times a day. Wow, are you ever going to be glad you opted to exercise caution in your clicks - because it turns out the huge "block party" at a to-be-announced location, now with 13,000+ attendees, is taking place at Gravity Soundbar.

If you, like me, are suspicious of anything popular and fun, pat yourself on the back. Tickets to the June 1st "Toronto Block Party 2015" at the Richmond Street club are $15. The updated Facebook event for the sucker-gathering of the summer reads, optimistically, "thousands expected."

To update you further on Toronto's weird social media party news, the Facebook event for the Yonge-Dundas Square water gun fight that Yonge-Dundas Square knows nothing about remains unchanged, as does the Union Station street party that Union Station knows nothing about.

The mysterious Trinity Bellwoods, Woodbine Beach, and Cherry Beach parties also have yet to provide significant updates, though now one wonders if all of these are just part of some clandestine capitalist scheme. Oh dear.

There's a lesson to be learned here. Trust no one.
