In today's Urban Planner: The ultimate girls' night out, a week of original TV pilots, and more Summerworks.
PARTY: Billed as “The ultimate girls night out,” the fourth Divalicious event (for women only, sorry, guys) features samples and demonstrations from over 45 different vendors of beauty products, dance fitness, and various luxury items. Programmed by DivaGirl Fitness and partners. C-Lounge (456 Wellington Street West), doors at 7 p.m., $15 in advance ($20 at the door).
COMEDY: Comedy Bar’s second annual Pilot Week kicks off tonight. Each night, local writers and comics will pitch their best made-for-TV ideas and scripts by staging them live for audiences and judges. (We wrote all about the winners of last year’s competition.) Entrants in tonight’s “prime-time” lineup (from 7:30 onwards, with four shows, each starting at the half-past mark) include a buddy (parking ticket) cop comedy from Ely Henry, a single-camera sitcom about online life from Mantown’s Adam Cawley, and more. Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West), 7:30 p.m. onwards, FREE.
SUMMERWORKS: The 2012 SummerWorks Festival, running August 9 to 19 at several venues along Queen Street West, features a dizzying abundance of local, national, and even international theatre, performance art, music, and more. To help you zero in on the hottest events, we’ve previewed the Theatre Series, the Music Series, and the Live Art Series & Performance Bar. Prices and times vary; visit the festival website for more details.
