Hi Booty bits. It's Dave here of Promise. My friend Irving and I have been throwing a string of one-off parties typically in a different place each time. It has to be some sort of a warehouse, dance studio, or a club that has something special about it to recommend it to us.
We take a lot of time to listen to the sound in a place, imagine dancing around in it etcetera, and then work to change it to exactly what we feel will be proper for a good night. We invite friends and friends of friends and generally just connect with interested/interesting people from all over the spectrum in Toronto. Travellers, creative types, ravers, musicians, shy peoples, whatever and their dogs.
People really like it. We're proud
We had a party at Temple because we liked it and found it interesting and there is room to dance. Also, the 'official' capacity of their place is much lower than the amount of people that you kinda want to cram in there, so we were definitely on the owners to keep letting people irregardless. It has two levels, so much like Mad Bar, you can fill the place to 'capacity', and then people just get all steamy and shoulder to shoulder dancing in the upper level. It was a really sweet party and worth the effort for us and for those who came. But you definitely gotta 'bring your own entertainment' if you know what I mean cause they are gouging $8 a glass of wine there. whoa. we tried to get them to bring the prices down, but they didn't know us that well and didn't want to budge in that way.
I notice that someone mentioned that it wasn't as 'proper' a place for a party as some, and I agree in a way because it is not massive and doesn't have two seperate rooms or anything like that, but it was charming enough and warehousey enough that we had to do something there. That's why we had it on a Friday instead of a Saturday. And we brought in an outside system for some good loud clean sound. I would say that at the total minimum about 3/4 of the people were dancing their asses off and smiling and that's why we do this in the first place - to see people have an honest good time.
I loved your comment about our last party and I love your user name. So we wanted to pass it on to our friends. We are having a New Years Party in that warehouse that you were in a couple of weeks ago - I hope we see you there. Please introduce yourself to myself and Irving.
