A Night Out at Nuite Blanche

What a night out, last night was. I decided to go explore the city, because it was that one night of the year when my frugal self and my art loving self can collide. I absolutely love Nuite Blanche. I love getting out and enjoying the sights, the people and of course the art.

Headed over to Nathan Phillip square for the Flight Path and Flight school but even early in the evening there was a huge line. So moved on.

Headed down to the Free Shop, this was the only place I stood in line. I waited ever so patiently to meet the artist Basil Alzeri.

Why is it that we have so much attachment to our stuff? After waiting and actually choosing something I wanted from his store of all his life’s possessions, I chose a beautiful pink Sari that he had handpicked in the Indian market in the UAE. How cool is that? So now I own a beautiful pink Sari. As I left the installation I bumped into two of Basil’s friends who explained how he had literally brought all of his worldly possessions from his apartment, minus his bed, laptop and camera. I wonder what he was left with this morning.

A couple who had met at that very location were about to arrive..who knew even Starbucks have a great heart and you can reserve that romantic corner? So you know I am a romantic at heart so had to wait while I sipped my pumpkin spice latte ( my treat for the night).

My final stop for the night was Egerton Falls on the Ryerson University campus, a peaceful way to end the night when I found out I won a dinner cruise from WagJag for participating in their twarty. So who wants to go on another adventure with me as I cruise the harbor?
