IT'S THE WEEKEND: Toronto Hot Spots And Excellent Events

Toronto has got some big things going on in the next little while, so I wanted to drop a quick post to let y'all know what's happening!

Have you ever had 84.5% proof rum? Whether your answer is yes or no, you should find your way down to Fashionably Late's Sunset Rum Punch party at Dazzling Lounge tonight! I was introduced to St. Vincent's Sunset rum, also known as Very Strong Rum (it says so on the label) - this stuff is no joke. If you can drink with the best of 'em, I dare you to take a shot or two. If you want to take it easy and pace yourself, indulge in some of the Sunset Rum Punch that will be flowing at Fashionably Late's party tonight! Sunset is only available for a limited time in Canada, so come get your fill! A beautiful venue, dope music, and the taste of the Caribbean? What more could you ask for? Let me know if you're rollin' - I'll be there!

This Sunday, I'll be at Yonge & Dundas Square for NXNE (North by North East Festivals and Conference). In it's 18th year, NXNE spans 7 days and 7 nights, and consists of showings by up and coming artists, major label headliners, filmmakers, and digital innovators. So, what's so special about this Sunday? Well, I don't know about you, but I'm all for a free show by Raekwon and Ghostface Killah *swoon*, with Killer Mike as the opening act! Check NXNE's Schedules and scroll down to "Raekwon & Ghostface Killah" for details. Can I hear a Wildflower and a Cherchez La Ghost?

On Sunday, June 24th, my homie Telisha of Goddess Intellect is hosting the Toronto edition of her Battle Of The Sexes event at Peridot Lounge! The 1st event was held in New York last year, and was off the chain. She's finally bringing the fun and controversy to her hometown, with Lincoln A. Blades, Stacey Marie Robinson, and Dr. Vibe joining her on the panel. Will ratchetry or reasoning win out? Check the event page for details on how you can purchase tickets to attend or watch via live stream!

To really give you a taste of what this event will be about, take a peek at this short promo commercial! ***SHAMELESS PLUG*** I'm making my Youtube acting debut as Angela! *waits for Tyler Perry to watch and cast me in Madea's Angry Black Family That Preys Reunion*
