MUSIC | Brain Trust Presents: The Never Evers, The Thinly Veiled Double Entendres, and The True Romantics
The long weekend is over and the only way to cope is with booze and bands. In case you didn't get enough yet, Brain Trust is putting on an awesome show tonight with three indie rock bands. Brooklyn band The Never Evers return to the Big Smoke, joining natives The Thinly Veiled Double Entendres and The True Romantics for a show at The Drake Underground. A little bit folksy, a little bit rock and roll, this will be a great show for just $5 cover.
The Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West) 9:30PM $5

FOOD | CSI Annex Local Food Market
Alimentary Initiatives sets up shop at the Bathurst Street CSI for their Toronto Office Market initiative, designed to get workers out of the office for lunch and into a food market that supports local growers. By making local food sourcing more convenient, AI helps local producers expand to the Toronto market while encouraging citizens to eat fresh foods. The market opens at 11:30AM and closes by 1PM. Come for lunch and grab supplies for dinner!
Centre for Social Innovation (720 Bathurst Street) 11:30AM Free

GAMES | Hipster Bingo
You might not like being called a hipster but you probably like Bingo so why not head to The Garrison for a night of watching those hipsters-who-are-nothing-like-you play a round? Regina Thegentlelady hosts an evening of Hipster Bingo at this local joint where the festivities are good and cheap. Bingo cards only cost $3 and there are big prizes for each game played so join in or comment on the sidelines about how this has already been done before (Note: it has).
The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West) 8PM $3

BOOKS | "Infinite Jest" Reading Group
A reading group of not-so-Oprahtic proportions, the Victory CafĂŠ welcomes the David Foster Wallace book club tonight for their first meeting to discuss his 1996 novel "Infinite Jest." Set in a future version of North America, the novel takes on themes commercialism, pop culture, abuse and relationships from several angles, including the Incandenza family, a tennis academy and a rehab centre. The DFW reading group is open to anyone able to read 100 pages for meetings taking place every two weeks, so swing by if you're a fan who wants to chat up like-minded folk.
Victory Cafe (581 Markham Street) 6PM Free
