Radar: Classic Simpsons Trivia Night, My Hometown Your Hometown, Annie Sprinkle's Ecosexy, Jazz Standards: Brodie West, Tania Gill & Chris Banks

FILM | Toxic Trespass
Filmmaker Barri Cohen is bringing his award-winning film Toxic Trespass to Trinity St. Paul's Centre tonight. Everyone knows that our children are the future and if we don't stop and assess how our current actions will effects them tomorrow, then we're all irresponsible d-bags. Toxic Trespass is a fascinating portal into the shocking reality about the effects of the chemical environment on children, all too relevant as we launch into 2011. Producer Dorothy Goldin Rosenberg will be leading the post-film discussion.
Trinity St. Paul's Centre (427 Bloor Street) 7pm Free

TRIVIA | WOO HOO! Classic Simpsons Trivia Night
What time is it Mr. Wolf? It's time for the best Simpsons Trivia Night in the city! Test your knowledge on seasons one through 11 of the favourite cartoon while watching three classic episodes that I'm sure you will be tempted to narrate along with - at least this is the only setting where judgment won't be passed for doing so. Bring up to six friends, even if it means having a "D'oh!" off to decide who is lucky enough to come with you.
Gladstone Hotel - Melody Bar (1214 Queen Street West) 7:30pm Free

ART | My Hometown Your Hometown Opening Party
Queen West's Voulez-Vous Café is home to a very special exhibit tonight, as Alyssa Bistonath (one of blogTO best former photogs) opens My Hometown Your Hometown. Described by the artistic starlet herself, "the images are intended to appeal to every viewer's sense of nostalgia, and, as such, feature settings that feel natural, inconspicuous, and timeless." Whether we admit it or not, we all long to feel that sense of melancholy every so often. Come see what got her on the Magenta Foundation's emerging photographer list for 2010. Opening party tonight, and the show will run until the end of the month.
Voulez-vous Café (1560 Queen Street West) 7pm Free

DISCUSSION | Annie Sprinkle's Ecosexy! A Show and Tell Lecture Presentation and Discussion
Who is Annie Sprinkle? She is lover of all things, ex-porn star, photographer, storyteller and now sex guru. Ecosexy "is an all new, fresh, innovative, one-of-a-kind presentation which explores Sexecology - the places where sexology and ecology intersect in our culture." Sounds intriguing, no? A unique opportunity to see Ms. Sprinkle as she bounces all over North American sharing with others her love for love and the many shapes it takes.
Come As You Are (701 Queen Street West), Free

MUSIC | Jazz Standards: Brodie West, Tania Gill & Chris Banks
Add some sultry flair to your Tuesday night with a little jazz infusion. This weekly Jazz show has been doing quite well, drawing out musical aficionados and newbies alike. Come see for yourself if jazz is what you need to pull you out of your winter funk and cold weather blues.
Holy Oak Café (1241 Bloor Street West), 9:30pm Free
