She’s boisterous, she’s beautiful, she’s bountiful and she’s back! Conni Smudge gives you brunch like no other. The Elbow Room is tame compared to this gal. Eat, drink and laugh your ass off at Hot Smudge Sundays. 11am–3pm. The Junction, 1138 Davie St. No cover. junctionpub.com

Condom Packaging Party

You think you’ve handled a lot of condoms? You’ve got nothing on these guys. From 6–9pm they cram, stuff and pack condoms and lube into tight little packages . . . sound familiar? Plus they get a fabulous meal from one of the neighbourhood restaurants. Help them! Health Initiative for Men, 310-1033 Davie St. checkhimout.ca
