TIFF | The Gladstone Hotel Presents: A Dark & Stormy Cocktail Soirée
To say the next couple of weeks are going to be busy would be an understatement. A colossal understatement. As I sit here on a Saturday afternoon of a long-weekend scheduling, organizing, confirming appointments, planning logistical back & forths between work so Canela can be walked & fed because fashion week and TIFF are lined up one after another; was not my idea of a Saturday (cue sarcastic, YAY). But, as much as I complain about my early start times and late nights the next couple of weeks, I love it. I love everything to do with Toronto during TIFF, now that we have fashion week just before the festival; the excitement is palpable throughout the city. So to kick off some of my coverage of events, parties, shows, presentations, lounges & dinners, I have something YOU can all make your way to!
