Shouldn’t all weekends be three days long? I certainly think so! Crawling out of bed this morning was particularly painful and my full inbox has me already day dreaming about next weekend.
Like always, I have the inside scoop on the best upcoming events. Today’s feature: the Art & Soul: Clash of the Titans party at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Saturday, February 20 at 8pm. It’s going to be AMAZING.
My insiders tell me that there will be three floors of fist-pumping dancing action with performances by The Lytics, MEMETIC DJs, DJ Co-op and DJ Hunnicutt. The Aveda Institute Winnipeg will have an onsite beauty bar and will be giving free makeovers all night long. Albert Street Cocktail will be serving up delicious mythical creature-inspired cocktails. Best of all—it’s a costume party!
Which favourite mythical creature are you going to dress up as? Sweet and beautiful goddess of love Aphrodite? Strong Athena, goddess of wisdom and war? Personally, I think I make a pretty fierce Medusa.
Whoever you choose be, you’re going to need a costume.
And what’s a Greek party without a toga?! Mitchell Fabrics on 637 Main Street is your go-to-place for all your ancient linen needs, and clearance cloth prices start as low as 99 cents per metre.
I found some amazing local jewellery at the Downtown Farmers’ Market last week that fits perfectly with my goddess gear. It’s a Cree-owned company called Boreal Workshop and they create all their handmade jewellery right here in Manitoba.
If you’re in a pinch, I find Ardene at Portage Place is perfect as a one-stop-shop for all your accessories for any party. I found a pair of gladiator sandals (3 for $10), some golden necklaces (4 for $10), and a flowy peasant top ($10)—I love a good bargain!
Tickets for the event start at $55 and for an additional donation you can get some pretty sweet perks. For an added $10 donation, you will receive a laurel wreath to complement your costume. An added $25 donation gets you access to the exclusive VIP lounge in The Bacchus Room. And either donation will get you entered to win a night’s stay at the Mere Hotel, dinner for two a Cibo, and two tickets to see Rhianna, April 18 at the MTS Centre.

As for me, time to get back to the work day and start tackling all these emails!
