Board Games Afternoon
The Toronto Gaymers host yet another board games event — but in the afternoon! It’s like previous events the gaymers have done, but now you can play all afternoon and still have the evening to do all the things you like. The featured games are Total Recall and Battlestar Galactica, and other games will be on hand as well.
1–9pm. Bar 499, 499 Church St. facebook.com/torontogaymers
Cherry Bomb: September Sessions
