On the subway. Next one: Soon!
Deep below the streets of
Toronto on Planet Earth, subterranean bliss erupts before
your eyes. You step onto a subway car, hear three chimes
and suddenly you are riding the rocket. Ads are replaced
with art, aliens blow bubbles, astronauts dance and robots
sing. On Tuesday, August 16th, you earthlings are invited
to join a subway party for a night of cosmic proportions.
Bring: costumes, instruments,
bubbles, cameras, decorations, space toys, glowsticks, moon
boots or just a friend to the southbound track of Downsview
station at 11:22 PM. Your
destination: alpha centauri! You blast off with enough
time to catch the last rocket back to Earth.

What's a subway party?
The fine print: You
can join the party at any point on the Yonge-University-Spadina
line (just wait by the last car at your station). This event
is all ages and 100% free.
There is no need to sign up, simply show up, but make sure
to join our mailing list! Contact kevin
or lori (at) newmindspace.com. Please respect our transit
workers: leave the subway car clean so they
will welcome us back. Check back nearer to the event in case
the time is changed (to accommodate the last train). If
for any reason you have not reached Finch by 1:10 AM, get
off the train and go south again.
Please forward this to fun people and relevant blogs!
