Update: I mistakenly reported the party as being on Friday, but Jeff Kahl points out that June 10th is a Thursday. I just assumed that one throws street parties on Friday.
The neighbourhood in which Tucows is located [PDF
link] is called Liberty Village, named after the east-west Liberty
Street, which runs right through it. It is an industrial area that’s
largely been turned into an office area for the high-tech, design and
entertainment industries, some offbeat places to go (The Academy of Spherical Arts, Joe Rockhead’s, Liberty Cafe, and home to a number of Toronto’s quirkier citizens (including Cory Doctorow,
who used to live in a large
space near the bottom of Fraser Street).
This Thursday, the L:iberty Village BIA (Business Improvement
Association) is hosting a street party called Give Me Liberty. There
are posters for this event all over the neighbourhood promising three
of the things I like most: “Cold Beer. Hot Food. Cool Music.” The fun
starts at 3:00 p.m. and runs until 9:00.
Here’s what the poster looks like — click it to see their site:
I’ll see if I can’t find out more — I’ll bet that Matt and Brenda from down the street know something about this.
