It seems I’ve made it through my 5th day of work. Only two more days to go and then I’ll have a day off. I’m thinking about how I’ll want to spend the day.
So Andrew invited me to a small charity event last night called Arrhythmia 2009. It was held at Art Square Café, a boutique café near the AGO. The venue was quite cute with a small art exhibit. Andrew introduced me to some of his friends, but besides Eric and his girlfriend, I don’t remember very many of the others. Eric’s girlfriend, Mariam, mentioned that her father owns Domani Restaurant & Wine Bar. I recall the restaurant on the Summerlicious listing. I definitely want to check out the restaurant at some point.
I had a good time mingling among strangers and watching the live performances. There was a hula dancer, a beatboxer (who was actually really good), and this guy with a beautiful voice who sang “Killing Me Softly” and a number of JT tracks. That dude was good too.
Eric later invited us to his aunt’s party, and what was supposed to be a walk to get the car turned into…well, a walk. Andrew and I ended up just going on spontaneous walks in different places. After picking up some Starbucks and grabbing some grub, we went down to the waterfront. Andrew took me for a walk through the Music Garden, which I had no idea it even existed. Even though it was dark, it seemed like a beautiful place I would enjoy. I’d really love to go back there some time to see the garden in daylight.
Then we drove over to the Distillery District and took a walk there. Andrew showed me the places he worked security at. I got to take a few nice pictures. But I must say, the wonderful thing about the night was the fact that I could just hang out with a friend, do spontaneous things, and not worry about it being mistakened as a date. Sometimes, it’s just nice to be able to do that. Anyway, I’ll leave that topic for further discussion in a future post.
This coming week’s outing will be at the Drake Underground on Thursday night. Our pal The iDC is opening for Tiny Danza. Now that we’ve been named “official fans” of the iDC (lol) of course we’ll be there to show some support. So if any of you are free this Thursday, September 3rd @ 9pm, come on over. I’ll see you there!
Alright, I’m heading out for a drink/dessert with Pam now. She’s leaving to Ottawa for law school, so we’ve got a lot of catching up to do tonight before she leaves!
