Hey, remember Nuit Blanche? You know: that all-night cultural art thing a little over a month ago that maybe wasn’t all that great. That thing.
While the city did a pretty spectacular clean-up job, they’ve missed a spot: a sign sturdily attached about ten feet up a pole outside the Isabel Bader Theatre at Queen’s Park and Charles Street on U of T campus still welcomes visitors to Zone 3, and invites them to text DEEP to SCOTIA if the exhibit that they can no longer see inside the theatre is their favourite. (We tried texting the number for kicks, but it encouraged us to enter the Scotiabank CFL contest instead.) Maybe the city’s just burned itself out on clean-up and has decided to keep all of the remaining remnants of Nuit Blanche up for next year, like those people who––defeated, lazy, or defiant––decide to leave their Christmas lights up year-round. Or maybe they just wanted to confuse tourists.
