Night at the Museum – With Cairo

Indulge, style

The Very Blustery Day

On a chilly Friday night, after a long week of going out every evening, we had the chance to go see our friend’s band, Cairo, play at the Royal Ontario Museum. The ROM opens its doors for evenings of live music, food and drink, all whilst enjoying the fossils, gems and artifacts, where people come to see and be seen with the art and culture from seven until the wee hours.

The DJ preps the crowd – Sanga Genesis.

Food stations, bars and a maze of flavours to experience were all interwoven with the exhibits.

In the band’s green room, someone had left their skeletons out.

The bison is faux-chewing, while the rest of us are doing the real thing.

Our talented friend plays electric violin and adds her dreamy voice to the sound of Cairo, which is consequently – one of the most attractive bands I’ve ever laid eyes on. Their music filled the space and drew a crowd, and was followed by diverse acts such as DJ Sanga Genesis (clever!) who spun tracks that had our booties shaking, and downstairs in the main hall (beneath the brontosaurus skeleton) there was a live brass oldies band, Oldies 990.

A beautiful sonic moment

“With You” – just released in music video form. Chills.

Food included naan and butter chicken wraps, deconstructed sushi (served ironically beneath manatee and sharks in the sea life display area), mac ‘n cheese sandwiches, ostrich burger, beet burger, Indian tacos… and a whole host of other incredible nibbles. If you can get out to the ROM this fall/winter to soak up some of this fun… do it!

The space was filled with people, but the sheer expanse of the floor plan allowed us all to mingle and move freely.

Sushi served under the sea… creatures.

Or you could play Indiana Jones and take photos (sponsored by Ford) of yourself all decked out for adventure.

Check out Cairo’s new video… it’s a good one!

Shake, Rock and Roll

Shake, Rock and Roll

I have found a new love. A dance party. Saturday nights at Clinton’s in Toronto, the djs spin oldies from the 50s, 60s and 70s… and I haven’t sweat and smiled that much in AGES.

For a party where everyone in the room feels like friends, with a rock & roll vibe and everyone cutting a rug… faux leather feels just right.

One key piece, the leather pant, provides a slew of options for cool, cool, cool.
