Do Make Say Think: 5 Things To Do This Weekend
Five ways to have a cultured late fall weekend.

Don’t let late fall malaise get the best of you. Here are five things you can do this weekend to keep active and cultured.

Thursday
 

1. Hennessey Artistry presents: The Global Art of Mixing ft. DJ Jazzy Jeff & DJ Premier

90s hip-hop heads rejoice. Tonight at UNIUN, the Hennessey Artistry Series hosts “The Global Art of Mixing,” featuring local rap standout Tre Mission and legendary hip-hop DJs Jazzy Jeff & and Premier, spinning together for the first time ever. 9PM, UNIUN Nightclub (1473, Adelaide St. W).

2. The Bloomsbury Collective Presents: A Room of One’s Own.

It was a mere few weeks ago that University of Toronto professor David Gilmour caused an international furor over his comments to Hazlitt’s Emily F. Keeler on why he doesn’t teach female authors, which means it’s perfect timing to fully appreciate this immersive staging of Virigina Woolf’s 1929 lecture series turned classic book, A Room of One’s Own. Naomi Wright stars as Woolf. 8PM, Historic Campbell House Museum (160 Queen Street West), running until November 24th.

Friday

3. Moe Funny, No Problems Presents: Primetime

This new monthly comedy show is hosted by the energetic and occasionally frantic Moe Ismail, a young comic coming off a standout performance at Kenny Robinson’s Nubian Disciples show at Yuk Yuk’s. The line-up features powerhouse Alex Pavone (recipient of a five-N review in NOW Magazine), and headliner Keith Pedro, best known for his appearances on Much Music’s Video on Trial and Degrassi: The Next Generation. 8:30PM, Avli Restaurant (401 Danforth Ave).

Saturday
 

4. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibit. 

Take your internet cat gif obsession to the next level by visiting the Wildlife Photography Exhibit, located in the ROM’s level 3, centre block. This exhibit–which highlights the best in wildlife photography in the world–features 100 photographs selected out of over 43,000 submissions, and is based on an internationally-run photography competition that is the product of a collaboration between the BBC and the London National History Museum. 8PM, the ROM (100 Queens Park).

 

5. White Girl @ Parts & Labour

This party advertises Houston/Atlanta/Los Angeles/New York/Toronto rap from 1993-2013, which is more or less all you need to turn your worst behaviour into the best party on a Saturday night. They also promise to make room for Mississauga. 10PM, Parts & Labour (1566 Queen Street W).
