Well, Toronto - it's here. The weekend that so many have been saving for sweating for, and prepping for has arrived! This weekend is the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival, and the city is already bubbling with excitement!
Tonight, I'll be at a really dope event - a 2-for-1 kinda deal. The good folks of Fashionably Late Fridays have created a unique Caribana Friday event, composed of a comedy show called Dead Wit Laugh, and the official afterparty called Heat at Dazzling Lounge (291 King Street West).
Dead Wit Laugh features Marc Trinidad - one of the funniest comedians I've ever seen. This man will keep you in stitches and will undoubtedly say say some wild, off-the-wall type stuff! To say he's entertaining is an understatement, and as a Caribbean man himself, he just adds to the Toronto Carnival vibe!
Once the show wraps up, we'll get into Heat - the musical conductors will be DJ Blackie Lox and DJ Smooth B, who'll keep us rockin' into the morning with hip hop, R&B, reggae and soca! Good music, good people, good vibes. That's what it's all about.
The Dead Wit Laugh show starts at 8pm, and cover is $10 (which includes your cover to Heat!) - if you just join us for Heat, cover is also $10. See how that 2-for-1 thing works now?
Here's a quick video showcasing Marc at the very first Dead Wit Laugh - can't wait to see him bring it tonight! This is likely the only Carnival party I'll be hitting this weekend...so I'm looking forward to a great night :) If you're looking for a unique way to spend your Friday night, Fashionably Late and Dazzling Lounge have got you covered!
If you come out, make sure to say hey! And no matter how you're spending the weekend, be safe, be smart, and have fun!
