Easter Monday events in Toronto, 2013

COCKTAILS | Happy Fun Times Restaurant Cannery Drink Competition
An interesting event tonight in Kensington Market for a great cause. The hip watering hole, Cold Tea, is the place to be for "Happy Fun Times" - a drinking competition presented in conjunction with Thomas Lavers, the nearby delicatessen and cannery. There are a number of matches already set up, and hopefully the competitors spent the weekend getting ready! This is the kind of event where everyone should really be prepared to take a cab or the TTC home, as the spirit of competition becomes contagious! All proceeds go towards breast cancer research.
Cold Tea (58 Kensington Avenue) 8PM

THEATRE | New Voices
"New Voices" is an event presented by the Ryerson Theatre School consisting of student-produced works. A variety of performances featuring a mixture of acting and dancing will showcase the students' skills and give a taste of emerging Toronto theatrical talent. It is not at all unusual for many of the works presented in this showcase to go on to be professionally produced to reach a greater Toronto audience. "New Voices" is produced by Sheldon Rosen, and runs until April 6th. If you are so inclined, attending this event is a great way to show your support for the theatre students at Ryerson University.
Ryerson Theatre (46 Gerrard Street East) 7PM $18/ students + seniors $14

MUSIC | Snarky Puppy at The Rex
Funky jazz collective, Snarky Puppy return to TO for two nights at The Rex Hotel. This instrumental band is made up of some top players who have worked with the likes of Snoop Dogg, ErykahBadu, Morcheeba, and others. These guys combine jazz with very danceable grooves, and their shows are very well-attended and definitely not in keeping with what many might think of as "jazz" in an either modern or traditional sense. Hailing from both Texas, and Brooklyn, this band spends a lot of time on the road, and are a well-oiled machine, even with a rotating lineup, and definitely worth checking out.
The Rex Hotel (194 Queen Street West) 9:45PM

MUSIC | Elvis Monday
Another edition of Elvis Monday goes down at The Drake tonight! Of course, given this TO showcase's long-standing reputation for presenting highly original and cutting edge underground talent, there really cannot be just "another" Elvis Monday. This TO musical force has been around for decades, and has presented early performances by Treble Charger, By Divine Right, Peaches, and others. Tonight's lineup includes an old TO favourite, the J.P. Wasson Band, as well as Elliot Shulman, Carmela Antonio Band, Luka, and Free Criminals. As always, there is no cover.
The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West) 9PM
