I remember that party vividly. I was sooooo impressed with the space and decor (remember the pick up truck that was jutting into the middle of the room?) and the overall attitude of these Thunder Bay imports who were actuially giving out free candy and water, if I remember correctly...
And that's where I first met Jelo!
I was also quite flattered when the E! folks told me that they patterned the look of their parties on the old Nitrous events.
Oh man. Don, I remember meeting you a few times there but I'm not quite sure if you were aware of who I was by that point! I think that was the beginning of our friendship though. I seem to recall the first time I ran into was at a party on Dufferin run by some English guy under the name of Cultural Vibes.
Anyway, I went to this place many times in 2nd year university as my friend Marinko often DJed there at the time. I think I might have even graced the decks there once but my memories from those nights are hazy.
There used to be this hippy guy who would roam about the place handing out free mushrooms. He just gave me a hanful, said "Have fun" and walked away. Surreal! That particular night I remember just walking out into the parking lot after everything had finished and my friend and I just sitting in his car tripping our heads off and being too fucked to move anywhere fast.
The place was sort of sketchy, but that added to the appeal! It was certainly full of interesting characters!
And whatever happened to Citrus, Ryan-7, etc?
