Radar: DC Tour In-Store Signing/BBQ, Eat to the Beat, ITC Harold Night's 2-Year Anniversary, 24 Carat Tuesday, Tuesday Night Comedy Special

SPORTS | DC Tour In-Store Signing/BBQ
A big group of skateboarders who I've never heard of because I can hardly stand on a skateboard let alone ride one, are on tour with DC shoes across the east coast and stopping in on Toronto tonight. Nick Dompierre, Marquise Henry, Sasha Daley, Josh Clark... right any bells? The only skater I know is Tony Hawk because I was a poser in public school and played Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2. Well these skaters plus more will be doing a demo at Ashbridge's Bay then swinging by the Baitshop for an in-store signing and BBQ. NOTE: Tony Hawk will NOT be there!
The Baitshop, 358 Dufferin St, Free, 7pm

FOOD | Eat to the Beat
If you love the Food Network as much as I do, you'll recognize a few of these names -- Anna Olson from Fresh and Lynn Crawford from Restaurant Makeover. Those two along with Fiona Lim and Dufflet Rosenberg will be taking part in the 15th annual Eat o the Beat fundraiser. Along with the food entertainment there will be a silent auction and raffle, all in support of Willow's free programs and services to Women with Breast Cancer.
Roy Thomson Hall, 60 Simcoe St, $150, 7pm

COMEDY | ITC Harold Night's 2-Year Anniversary
ITC Harold Night has been taking over Tuesday nights at Comedy Bar for months now, and they are now celebrating their second anniversary together. The longform improv team is made up of Ken Hall, Steve Hobbs, Onai Shraif, Alex Lean, Ted Hallett, Adrianne Gagnon and coached by Canadian Comedy Award nominee Sean Tabares. If you've let this pass by for two years, now's the time to take advantage.
Comedy Bar, 945 Bloor St W, $5, 9:30pm

PARTY | 24 Carat Tuesday
I can't dance normally, let along breakdance -- but that's what makes watching it so cool. Week after week, 24 Carat Tuesdays at Andy Poolhall has brought some of the best music selected by DJ Serious and "dopest" b-boys in the city out. It can be kind of intimidating to see in person, so bring a friend.
Andy Pool Hall, 489 College St, 10pm

COMEDY | Tuesday Night Comedy Special
Ron Josol is one of the biggest comedians in Toronto -- popularity wise, not muscle wise (but he might win that one too). With plenty of successful tours under his belt, winning the Just for Laughs Homegrown Competition and appearances on MuchMusic's Video on Trial, he's at the top of his game. He'll be appearing at The Drake Hotel tonight with Bryan O'Gorman, Dylan Gott and the sketch comedy of Smells Like the 80's.
The Drake Underground, 1150 Queen St W, $10, 8pm
