★★★ TORONTO STRIP SPELLING BEE - May 6th, 2016 - Revenge of the Sixth Edition! ★★★
RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/718027855006423/
WARNING: There may be NUDITY in this show.
The game is played a lot like strip poker, but it's a spelling bee, and it's played in front of a live audience of hooters, hollerers and hecklers who want to see some smart and sexy skin!
Friday, May 6th, 2016
Buddies in Bad Times Theatre
12 Alexander Street
(1 blk east of Yonge)
Sign-up at 10:30 PM sharp!
Bee starts at 11 PM
$10 at the door
FREE if you compete! (AND we buy you a drink!)
Please note that we must cap our number of strip-spellers at 10 to ensure an expedient and entertaining evening.
You are cordially invited to Toronto's QUEER SLOWDANCE - 90s EDITION!
RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/1696634167272031/
With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Toronto Queer Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! (Except for the occasional intermission when we play the fastest songs we can find!)
It's high school with a happy ending. Come and experience why slow is beautiful, and why love is not ironic.
PS. Fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is not required. But it would be AWESOME and HAWT. Since this is our 90s edition, you are encouraged to wear your most dapper, delightful and delicious outfits incorporating neon, backwards ballcaps, overalls with one strap hanging! And/or dress like any or all of the Spice Girls. But most of all we encourage you to wear the thing you don't have an opportunity to wear anywhere else!
Finally, you do not have to be queer to attend this party, but you must have an open mind, an open heart, and have open arms. Do keep in mind that many of our attendees fall within the LGBTTQ continuum and may or may not be interested in dancing with the 'opposite' sex, so if you are stridently straight, this may not be the most receptive community for you.
805 Dovercourt Rd. (1 block North of Bloor, 3 blks. west of Ossington)
Saturday, May 7, 2016
Doors at 9:30, Dance from 10 PM - 3 AM.
$10 admission includes your Dancecard-booklet!
Regretfully, the Dovercourt House is not wheelchair-accessible.
We are always looking for designated dancers for our evenings. If you are outgoing, warm, and willing to undertake the very serious duty and responsibility of inviting wallflowers out onto the dancefloor - if in fact, such a prospect gives you great joy - then please contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.

(So, I don't just put on weird events, but I am also a visual artist and I share a studio in Montreal's Long Haul Studios, and this year one of our fundraisers is a party I've wanted to put on for a long time - HALLOWEEN IN SPRING! So while this event isn't actually one of mine, I am on the organizing committee and I will also be DJing the dancefloor that night!)
