Victoria Day events in Toronto, 2013
FOOD & DRINK | Brewer's Backyard: Queen Victoria's Secret
This afternoon, the Brewer's Backyard returns to Evergreen Brick Works to begin a new season of beer drinking at its finest, in the lovely Koerner Gardens and and Holcim Gallery. "Queen Victoria's Secret" is the Brewer's Backyard's 2013 kickoff event, and was a royal success last year! The idea here is one where the element of surprise is at work: the details of the food and beverage selection for today will not be revealed until the event begins, but the brewers can be revealed: Great Lakes, Oast House, Granite, and Left Field, with edibles coming from FeasTO. Brewer's Backyard regulars know that only selections fit for "royalty" will make the cut, so let yourself enjoy the suspense, and the afternoon!
Evergreen Brick Works, Koerner Gardens (550 Bayview Avenue) 12-4PM
MUSIC | ELECTRIC ISLAND with SETH TROXLER & Friends at Centre Island
Electric Island is a new concert event that is perfect for a holiday Monday. Taking place today on Centre Island, this event is both a fully licensed picnic and a concert. Local and international DJs will be featured in what is shaping up to be a monster showcase of electronic sounds and danceable rhythms. The lineup includes: Seth Troxler, Nitin, My Favourite Robot, Nathan Barato, Nature of Music, Jonathan Rosa, and several others, including a surprise special guest. Electric Island runs all afternoon, and is scheduled to end before 11PM to give everyone time to make their way back by ferry.
Centre Island (9 Queens Quay West - ferry boarding) 2:30PM - 10:30PM $17.50
MUSIC | Living with Lions, Deforesters, Brave the Wild + Guests
Tonight at Sneaky Dee's, a power-packed lineup of bands that will help you end the long weekend with a bang! Headliners Living With Lions, hailing from Vancouver, bring their punk-infused pop sonics to town, and are joined by Deforesters, who are playing their first gig, and feature members of Topanga and Roman Line. Also on on the bill are TO punk rock outfits Brave The Wild and Days Like Today. Rounding things out musically and geographically, Reunion from Halton Hills will get the ball rolling and show everyone how it's done. Apparently this show will be done by 11:30, and followed by karaoke. Should be good!
Sneaky Dee's (431 College Street West) 7PM $10
BOOKS & LIT | "Wrestling with Democracy" Book Launch
Tonight at the Tranzac Club, Dennis Pilon launches his book, Wrestling With Democracy, published by University of Toronto Press. Politics, at every level of government seems to impact our lives in so many ways, and this book will be very interesting for anyone who has ever given thought to the process of electing our leaders and its history. Wrestling With Democracy traces the history of this "democratic process", and how differently it works in various Western countries, and also examines how it has changed or remained unchanged in different regions in the last century. Leo Panitch will host the event.
Tranzac Club, Main Hall (292 Brunswick Avenue) 7:30PM
