Choice events in the city this week


Tapette: Edition Bouge de la

With the closure of Henhouse, DJ Phil V has packed up his baguettes and is squatting at Miss Thing’s (formerly Wrongbar) until his French dance party can find a more permanent home. This edition includes performances by Igby Lizzard and Champagna Enemea.

Saturday, Aug 1, 10:30pm. Miss Thing’s, 1279 Queen St W.


The bulge. The plump ass, framed by straps. The hairy legs (if that’s your thing). The chance of a wiener popping out to say “howdy-doo.” What more do you want? Men are encouraged to wear only jockstraps at this recurring dance party. DJ Mark DeMarko spins.  

Saturday, Aug 1, 10:30pm. The Black Eagle, 457 Church St.


Encore Board Games Night

While the burly butt pirates are off dancing in their underwear and the dainty Frenchies are voguing on Queen Street West, the nerds take refuge above a bookshop for an evening of table-top games. This month’s featured game is Channel A, but others are also available.

Friday, July 31, 7pm. Glad Day Bookshop, 598 Yonge St.


Kinky ’n Queer

A bunch of puppies and other kinksters show off and sell their artwork, handmade sex toys and gear — everything from penis-shaped chew toys to leather gauntlets with built-in wallets. The Toronto Sisters of Joy are on hand if anyone needs Hail Marys or whatever.

Saturday, Aug 1, 5pm. Glad Day Bookshop., 598 Yonge St.

The New Wave: Violet Wands, Sounding and Play Space Etiquette

Slutty buggers who enjoy being mildly electrocuted and having things shoved up their cocks in public places (or who enjoy doing this to others) attend three workshops on violet wands, sounding and play space etiquette. The New Wave is for people ages 19–35.

Saturday, Aug 1, 5pm. The Black Eagle, 457 Church St.

Sticks and Balls: A Puppy Pool Night

Kinky human pups play pool. And because they’re always an almost excessively welcoming bunch, everyone else is welcome too (except squirrels). This is Pup Sprocket’s (Toronto Puppy 2014) last official event before handing over the milk bone, or whatever, to a new pup.

Tuesday, Aug 4, 7:30pm. Pegasus, 489 Church St.
