While Newmindspace have organized subway parties in Toronto, SkyTrain parties in Vancouver, and métro parties in Montréal, sometimes nothing beats an old-fashioned streetcar party for a beat-bumping, track-turning, three hour party tour of the city. The TTC will rent a streetcar (PCC, CLRV or ALRV) for a minimum of three hours for a pretty steep fee to just about anybody. The customer can request a custom route, like Newmindspace has, that takes advantage of many of the lesser-used streetcar tracks in the city.
This Friday’s streetcar party is a fundraiser to make up for the incredible costs of putting on Capture the Flag and the lightsaber battle at the ROM last month. The theme is a sort of winter wonderland, inviting polar bears, fuzzy igloo-dwellers and arctic adventurers of all kinds to play on the streetcar. Find out all the details on the Facebook listing.
A limited number of $20 tickets are available at Lavish & Squalor, 253 Queen Street West. Tickets entitle the bearer to reduced entry at RANDOMLAND.
Kevin Bracken is the co-founder of Newmindspace.
