Send in the Clones

GC and I are having a tough time trying to decide what to do tonight, because there are soooo many interesting things happening around town. We’re divvying up the following events amongst ourselves and our clones. I thought I’d share them with you too, in case you’re looking for something to do tonight. (I’ve also tacked one on at the end for Sunday.)

1. Ember Swift’s CD Launch at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, at 9:00 tonight. I’ve never met Ember Swift, but we play a lot of Scramble together on Facebook. She’s an amazing Scramble player, and a fine musician too. Her new CD is billed as “A Folktronica Collection – World and Folk meet Electronic and Groove.”

2. Ottawa blogger Laurie Kingston is launching her book Not Done Yet: Living Through Breast Cancer. 7:00-9:00 pm, First Avenue Day Care, 73 First Avenue. Go Laurie!

3. Stafford Studios Annual Open House and Reception, 7:00-9:00 pm. This is an artists’ collective of nine professional artists. Nepean Creative Arts Centre, 35 Stafford Road, Nepean. (The reception is tonight but the open house continues Saturday and Sunday.)

4. Celebrate Barry Doyle at the Elmdale, on what would have been his 42nd birthday. This event also features a silent art auction, including a piece by one of my favourite artists, Meaghan Haughian! (Hat tip to Miss Vicky.)

Those events are all happening tonight. Here’s a heads-up for Sunday: The Experimental Farm is hosting a Rare and Unusual Plant Sale.

    Thanks for the ideas but some of us are hockey fans and I am having people over for the game tonight at 7:00 and pulling for Washington all the way!

    You may have already gone out by now but I wanted you to have something to read when you and GC returned home tonight!

  • Laurie’s book launch was last night – so maybe we’ll see you at the ‘dale!

  • …if you have access to a car, the annual Vankleek Hill May Show is on next weekend. Lots of art, music, crafty stuff and Beau’s Beer… Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Make a reservation at the Trillium Tea Room for lunch: (613) 678-6892, it’s really, really good. Ask for the iced tea.

  • Thanks Kat – I hope your team won.

    Miss Vicky – ooops! (I hope nobody showed up for Laurie’s launch a day late because of me. If they did, I’m so sorry.)

    Gabriel, that sounds great, I might do that.

  • Hey Zoom-

    I had fallen behind on my blog reading this week so just read your last three posts – backwards.

    First of all, I want to say how sorry I am that you have breast cancer. No matter what the diagnosis or the treatment path, cancer is hard and scary.

    I also wanted to say that if you ever wanted to connect with someone who knows the cancer centre and the whole treatment scene far too well, I would be more than willing
    to share what insights I have (and I have lots) Any time (laure DOT kingston AT gmail DOT com).

    Finally, I want to add that the strength and humour, bravery and honesty that leap off the page of your blog with each post will serve you very well. As will the fact that are surrounded by people and animals who love you. You are set up to do very well, indeed.

  • Thank you so, so much Laurie. I’ll be in touch. Hugs to you.
