Urban Planner: August 1, 2008

20080801urbanplanner.JPGWORDS: Breaking Dawn, the final installment of author Stephenie Meyer’s vampire/romance book series Twilight, is being released at midnight. A masquerade-themed party at Indigo this evening celebrates the book launch, with Breaking Dawn-inspired activities, music, and prizes for the best costume. Plus, you get to buy the book—which will certainly suck—as soon as it goes on sale at 12:01 a.m. Indigo Books (55 Bloor Street West), 8:00 p.m., FREE.
SALE: Vintage boutique Marylou Flamingo is having a 30% off sale until next Thursday. A perfect excuse to buy (or at least try on) one of those sequined dresses you know you’ve always admired. Marylou Flamingo (984 Dundas Street West), 12–7 p.m, FREE.
SPORTS: The Toronto Argonauts take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
If you don’t follow the CFL, all you need to know is that the Blue Bombers have a crappy logo and are in last place in their division. Meaning we’ve got a good chance! Rogers Centre (1 Blue Jays Way), 7 p.m., $20–$75.
AUCTION: Corporate online auction agency Auctionwire kicks off their Toronto International Film Festival auction at 8:30 p.m. You can bid on things like VIP passes to after-parties, deluxe hotel packages, and TIFF gala premiere tickets. So if you really feel like spending money, and you’re really bored with eBay, why not pay way more than face value for a night in a Toronto luxury hotel? Auction Wire’s TIFF Auction, 8:30 p.m., FREE.
