Hope you had a great long weekend
It's bee a pretty eventful week in Toronto, from news about our intrepid Mayor gaining worldwide attention, to a long weekend chock full of great shows, we've finally had a bit of time to catch our breadth and get on to the next week, and we've got another great week for you.
But first, I wanted to draw your attention to a really cool little cafe located just outside of the Junction. As you know, at 3030 we are big fans of vinyl, and also big fans of coffee, and when the two are combined that makes us big fans of Cabin Fever Collective. They are located a few blocks from Dundas West Subway station on Bloor, so stop on in, get a cup of joe and chat music with the friendly folks who run the place.
Free coffee or tea with every record purchased. Really.
So now that you've got your next destination for great music AND coffee, let's get to all the cool stuff that we're bringing to the Junction this week.
Some pretty big news coming out of the Kitchen this week, as we've taken the jump, and have launched lunch service during the week, from 11am - 4pm. Chef Adissa, has put his unique spin on an amazing lunch menu. Take a look at it, and make plans to visit us in the afternoon. The neighbourhood has spoken and we're open now!
This weekend, our friends from the culturally distinct part of the country are helping us to give you two great shows on Friday and Saturday. McAuslan St-Ambroise, who make one of my favourite stouts, are going to be bringing in some special, limited time only beers for our taps, while helping us to bring you both an awesome Burlesque show, as well as some great music from Montreal.
One of the first modern craft breweries, it was launched in 1989, and has been brewing some of the best beer in this country for almost half a century. We hope that as you're enjoying the tunes this weekend, that you raise a glass of theirs, and hopefully you'll get to meet our friendly rep Holisha, who will be providing free samples of some of their brews. How can you argue with that?
We've got a really eclectic line-up this week, and hopefully there is something in here which will appeal to just about anyone.
On Wednesday, it's the return of our exceptionally popular @3030Trivia brought to you by Junction Craft Brewing.
Experimental dub band, Masters of Love and Sound release their album in the back part of the venue on Thursday.
An overdue return on Friday comes with a high-school themed burlesque presentation brought to you by McAuslan St-Ambroise.
Phenomenal soul-funk-ska band from Montreal, The Key Lites return to 3030 as part of the #MetropoleTO series brought to you by McAuslan St-Ambroise, on Saturday.
Finally, on Sunday we've got an event the whole family can enjoy, with our Wonderful World of Lazy programming, featuring screenings of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs at 5:30 and Despicable Me at 7:30.
Thanks for taking the time to give this a read, and in honour of our amazing neighbourhood, I hope that you enjoy this Betty Lavette b-side.
