Click here to download the list of nominees.
Spent the evening at a cocktail reception for the Toronto Arts Foundation Awards finalists – I nominated one of my favourite companies, Expect Theatre and am so pleased they’re in the final round.
Saw this article on Blog TO the other day and I am extremely impressed – GREAT concept for a hospital fundraiser!
Speaking of fundraisers, all of you who swore up and down you would be attending the Fringe Festival fundraiser – it’s NEXT WEEK! In ten days people will be savouring a delicious tasting menu courtesy Fidel Gastro AND learning about what they’re eating, AND drinking sexy one of a kind vodka based cocktails, AND eating cupcakes AND bidding on cool auction prizes AND dancing to DJ Ricky. And if you buy a ticket, you too can be one of those well fed, well informed, well libated prize winning dancing fools. And if not – well….
Dumbwaiter (four Dora noms yesterday!) has added two shows to their run, so visit their website for details.
And Sister Mary’s a Dyke?! is moving and grooving along and has some amazing ticket deals – take a wander to the Cahoots site for more info and then take a wander over to Aki Stuido to see what all the fuss is about!

Complete list of Dora Mavor Moore nominations here! It’s been a solid year of theatre – congratulations to all!
This is awesome.
Get your show trailer on Praxis.
Also awesome (from Mashable) – Facebook Finally Lets Page Admins Schedule Posts, Have Different Roles.
Now don’t get carried away with the scheduling and the walking away – it is not a Showtime Rotisserie where you’re gonna set it and forget it. Facebook pages require interaction, back and forth, question and answer, call and response – it’s a dialogue, right? I’m all for scheduling some posts, but not all of them. I did try it out last week, it did post on the correct date, but not at the right time. Which I knew because I was paying attention. Off you go – give it a shot with a completely unimportant update nad start playing around from there.
Have something on hold at the library? Do not forget to pick it up or they’ll charge you a dollar, it’s a new thing – the unpicked up hold fine. The library has a whole slew of new ways to manage your holds and get them on time, though.
Can’t believe they’re charging you a dollar? I can. It’s another one of those crazy things I love about the library – the hold system.
“I want to read this book. But it’s at a library all the way across town.”
“Oh. Which one? Let us know and we’ll send someone to pick it up and bring it somewhere closer to you so you can read it. And we’ll email or call you to let you know it’s here. “
“But wait – how much will it cost me to do that?”
“Oh, it’s free. But you have to pick it up on time.”
Considering the base rate for any package delivered by cab in this city is ten bucks…
