The following post is from our advertisers, Virgin America, Tourism Toronto, and Only in San Francisco.
We know what goes through your head when you board a Virgin America flight and see that signature purple glow in the cabin: I wanna dance! Or maybe: Get me a drink, let’s party! Perhaps even: Is there room for a talented indie rock band to perform in here? Sadly, there’s not much room in the aisle for busting moves, and it’s not often that bands perform during flight (but, believe it or not, it’s happened before). Sure, you can order a drink, but the fasten-your-seatbelt sign will still be laughing in your face.
Thanks to Virgin America’s Hometown Hideouts Contest, five winners and their friends got to experience that groovy purple glow with all the aforementioned delights. Virgin America flew SFist winner Kailen N. and seven guests to our blessed city, where Broken Social Scene played a private Halloween concert at Parkdale hot spot Parts & Labour. Our four Torontoist winners, Lee C., Michael J., Elliot C., and Heather C., and their guests also attended. Good music, good food, good drinks, and good company made for a fun and very entertaining night.
Check out the above photo gallery for pictures of this very special All Hallows’ Eve. If you think it looks fun, you’re right. It was. And the fun isn’t over yet. The Torontoist winners will be flying to San Francisco courtesy of Virgin America for a two-night stay at Hotel Rex. Get in on this, and try out Virgin America’s new Toronto-San Francisco route yourself!
Congratulations to the winners once more, and loads of thanks to Broken Social Scene, Tourism Toronto, Only In San Francisco, and Virgin America.
