Notable Now Toronto: March 28, 2014

Rom Prom
Date: March 29
Location: Royal Ontario Museum

Part costume party, part professional and social networking opportunity, and full-on excuse to take complete advantage of an early ‘spring’ Saturday night out, ROM PROM is the Young Patron’s Circle’s largest fundraiser for the Royal Ontario Museum. Inspired by the ROM’s Centennial exhibition, Forbidden PROM will be a night of live entertainment, dancing, gourmet fare, Chinese astrology readings, and tempting lounge areas. It’s fancy time, people.

D.W. Alexander
Date: April 3
Location: D.W. Alexander, 19 Church St. Toronto

We’re having a party and we want you to come. D.W. Alexander recently opened its doors in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood and we plan on bringing you along to mark the occasion. ‘Cause it’s not everyday a true Canadian cocktail bar sets up shop (they specialize in rye-based drinks). We’ll be hosting a Notable Night in celebration of the recent launch of this downtown gem and we want you to be there. Hit up to see how you can gain access to this exclusive throw down.

Date: April 18, 19, 20, 21

Forget the Easter Bunny for now, ‘cause this is all about planning to get the most out of your long weekend. Maybe it’s religious, maybe it’s not; either way, we’re not here to get into your business, we just want you to be thinking ahead and sorting out how you’re going to be spending that extra day (or two) away from the office. It’s been a long winter for all of us and while a day off isn’t much, it’s definitely better than more polar vortex.   

Aretha Franklin
Date: April 12
Location: Roy Thomson Hall 

Rolling Stone named her the greatest singer of all time, to which Mary J. Blige added, “You know a force from heaven. You know something that God made. And Aretha is a gift from God. When it comes to expressing yourself through song, there is no one who can touch her. She is the reason why women want to sing.” Amen to that. Go out and show a little respect (sorry, we had to) for the first woman to ever be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Earth Hour
Date: March 29
Location: Earth 

Tomorrow night from 8:30pm until 9:30pm local time, we’re going dark. And if ordinarily well-lit world landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Times Square, and the Vegas Strip can handle an hour of shutdown, we’re pretty sure your life won’t end if you power down too. Also the fact that Vancouver was crowned as the first ever Global Earth Hour Capital last year means we have to participate. Those guys hate it when we beat them at anything. 

Blue Jays
Date: April 4
Location: Rogers Centre

The boys of summer are back (apparently no one told them it’s still freezing outside). And while they officially start their season on a four-game series in Tampa Bay on Monday, we’re really looking forward to seeing them in person at the home opener on the 4th – against the Yankees, no less. Too many people have already written the Jays off, but we happen to know that some significant baseball insiders are saying this could be the sleeper team of the year. You heard it here first.
