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.

Tuesday, August 16th, 2005
Ride the Rocket subway party
Downsview Station, Toronto
. Meet at the end of the southbound track.

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) 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!

for more info, contact kevin or lori.
