Toronto (a.k.a. Accordion City)

Blogstravaganza (a.k.a. "Monkey Knife Fight") Tonight!

The preponderence of images of knife-wielding monkeys should be a hint to you that tonight is the night of the Accordion City (a.k.a. “Toronto”) Blogstravaganza, a gathering of this fine city’s bloggers. It takes place at a pretty convenient location: Fiddler’s Green, a pub located at 27 Wellesley Street East, just east of Yonge and Wellesley on the south site, and right above Wellesley Station. For those of you who are driving, there’s a parking lot beside Fiddler’s Green.

Over at his blog, Let it Bleed, Blogstravaganza partner Bob Tarantino writes that Fiddler’s Green has given us the third floor room. This means that as soon as you enter the pub, go up, up, waaay up to the third floor…we’ll be the group with the accordion. (The odds against there being two accordions in the same bar at the same time are almost nil…we observe a Highlander-like “There can be only one!” code of honour in the Brotherhood of the Bellows.)

Postmodern Sass tells me that there might be karaoke there. You might get to see The Master at work, you lucky dogs!

I myself expect to be there around 8:30-ish. I’m taking Wendy out on our weekly “date night” ritual prior. If you’ve got questions for Wendy about her new gig as Editor-in-Chief of Top 10 Sources, this is your chance! If you’d like to make a page for Top 10 Sources — a great way to get you and your blog noticed by the larger blogopshere, by the bye — this is also your chance!

For more on the Blogstravaganza (including why I’ve nicknamed it “Monkey Knife Fight”), see this earlier entry of mine. In the spirit of that entry, I share a song with you — Stevie Wonder’s funkafied cover of the Beatles’ We Can Work it Out [3.0MB MP3].

See you there!
