Scenes from CanLIT (Canadian Livers in Training) 2012

canlit collage

There’s a traditional annual party held by and for Toronto’s tech and social media communities called CanLIT, which is short for Canadian Livers In Training. It’s an excuse to get together and “warm up” for the South by Southwest conference, which sees a lot of attendees from Accordion City.

Want to see last year’s CanLIT photos? They’re over here.

Lee Dale of Say Yeah hosted this year’s edition of CanLIT, and it was spectacular. Here are some photos from the bash.

The kitchen was a-rockin’, so come on a-knockin’!

When called for, I broke out the accordion. The big hit was when I jammed along to Nine Inch Nails’ Closer.

The other big hit: I decided to dress up a little and wore my little-used black Hugo Boss suit and black shirt. It received much lady-attention and appreciation. I’ll have to wear it more often.

It ain’t a party until both Justin Kozuch and Raymi the Minx tear up the dance floor!
