#SummerRehab

If you like dancing and you like food, I'm pretty sure you're going to want to attend this party.

One of the best things to do during summer is to be day-drunk. It is a great feeling knowing you'll be home by a decent hour and get enough sleep to tackle work the following day. You know what also helps with battling daytime intoxication? Putting some food in your system while drinking! With the purchase of a ticket to Summer Rehab you will also be getting a pound of wings combo from an exceptional wingmaster, my friend Rob of RobNWings

I am not the biggest wing connoisseur, but let me tell you his IG-Honey wings are to die for. I know a lot of my friends really like his famous Southside Sauce, but for me it is definitely the IG- Honey that makes you reconsider your whole diet. 

The wonderful humans who will be throwing the party are my good friends Flexx + Terri, members of the #HOM duo (House of Masqueraders). They will also have some guest DJ's this year with DJ DOC, Junya Menace, DJ B. ROB alongside another swell guy, MC Ovaaseas. 

Where: Burgundy Bar and Lounge, 5 Bethridge Rd. 

When: Sunday, August 26th from 2pm to 8pm

Cost: $20 tickets are available now on Eventbrite (that comes with the pound of wings) or you can contact Flexx directly and get some single admission tickets for $10.

Hope to see all of you lovely people there eating some wings and shaking a tail feather. (Yep, I definitely just said that.)

#HOUSEWARMING

You need to come to this fete

That should be the only sentence required for this event. If I say this will be good, it will be.

I place that much trust in what my friend Flex puts together as a partnering member of the #HOM duo (House of Masqueraders). This will be a great fete because it is being thrown by those who love soca and know what they're doing to ensure a good and slack time. Along with Flex DJing, other people I am personally fond of such as Smartiez, BuzzB and Flip will be making sure we all do some stuff we hope a camera does not catch.  

Am I biased perhaps? Likely. But I assure you, aside from all of these aforementioned DJ's being good people they also know how to mix more than vicious alcoholic drink. They will have all of us getting on. 

If you require any more convincing, listening to the Housewarming Promo Mix may also get your palette wet. Get you ready for the vibes this party will bring to your otherwise well behaved and mundane life. (Who the hell wants to be well-behaved? Trust me, you need some slackness in your life!)

Info: Reign Toronto, 3454 Danforth Ave. - Friday, May 26th @ 10pm - $15 tickets (you can contact Tenn, Kabeer, Flex for)

#BESSFETE

I hope you are all ready for the best time of year in Toronto - BOAT RIDE SEASON!

Every year I look forward to this time where we all get to go on a boat, drink profusely and dance on the water while looking at our incredible city from a distance. This year for #BoatRideSZN there is one specific event I would like to bring your attention to that will be thrown by my good friends at BESSGUIDE

#BESSFETE DDI Down D Islands Pre-Carnival Boat Ride will be held on Saturday, July 29th. Sailing 12:30pm-4:30pm (boarding @ noon) on the Empress of Canada. 

This boat ride is the weekend before Caribana so we can all get to pumping early, consider it foreplay? 

It will be food inclusive and there is bottle service available as well. 

Not only will you be fed, enjoy an awesome view and obviously get to dance with me (I will try to keep up) the DJ lineup for #BESSFETE includes the incredible Dr. Jay, my good and very talented friend Flexx Got Next, and Hypeman & DJ Ana straight from Trinidad. 

Early bird tickets are available until the end of May for $40 on Ticketgateway, $50 regular.

And to top it all off - for my readers only, $35 tickets are available with the promo code ImpatientBess for the first 30 people! 

I hope to see you all there!

#Cozy2

Fun story about me, I hate high heels. I also hate pants, but since it is not socially acceptable to go outside without pants on - I usually settle for not wearing heels instead. 

If you are like me and hate having to dress up to go out and dance, then I suggest you come to #Cozy2 this upcoming Sunday, April 16th. The party that precluded this one was the original Cozy party, and that was a big success. The music consists of 90's and 2000's R&B, hip hop and lovers rock with two very talented DJ's to mix it all together.  The host is the wonderful Rebeka who also throws the super fun #FuckIt parties.

It says on the flyer that cozy/comfy clothes are highly encouraged and I feel many people will take advantage of getting to party without all the fuss of 'omg what to wear!'

See you there Sunday!

Info: One Loft, 292 College St. - Sunday, April 16th @ 10pm - $10 entry

#F*CKIT

I don't know about the rest of you, but I LOATHE St. Patrick's Day festivities. As someone who was a bouncer for so long, the day itself gives me such unhappy memories of stupid drunks and green beer. Luckily, (aside from the parade today) the clubbing/dancing/drinking part of this is all done. This is where my friend Rebeka comes in. She throws these parties that are called #FuckIt every couple of months on a Monday. 

I have been to at least five of these parties, and it is always an amazing time and amazing vibes. So if you, like myself, avoided going near any dance clubs this weekend because of the nuisances tied to St. Patrick's Day behaviours - #FuckIt is for you.

Info: Harlem Underground, 745 Queen St. West - Monday, March 20th @ 10pm - $10 Entry
