Depot and I hit the town last night for a mid-week, open bar, charity event. We donned our chic fall outfits, pretty heels, more makeup than usual for a Thursday and headed to the Burroughs building for Project Sunshine’s Yuppie event, Shine on.
Eventing, in my opinion can go one of two ways 1. Bore fest full of pompous suits and holier than thou women or 2. Highly entertaining evenings in Interesting spaces with eclectic people. This night was definitely the latter.
• Excellent food: tasty and plentiful appies PLUS a midnight poutine bar courtesy of Smoke’s Poutinerie
• Booze: readily available and included my fav, Steam Whistle
• Entertainment: an Art Battle included four artist in essentially a ‘paint off’ – was phenomenal to watch and the talent, and resulting canvass’, were top notch
• Self Directed Fun: a silent auction and an excellent photo booth that depot and I hogged – best photos of us ever!
The only downside was the lack of seating – not a chair, bench or banquette in the joint. Not the best situation when teetering around in heels! When the photo booth was temporarily shut down for the art battle, we had a stroke of brilliance and used the bench to have a quick sit down!
We had an excellent time – left with smiles on our faces, full bellies and a slight limp. Thankfully, my hangover was shockingly almost non existent – my system was probably just thrilled I wasn’t drinking out of my Oktoberfest glass again 🙂
