Voulez-Vous Café closing – last day is today July 29, 2014

voulez-vous-cafe
After 4.5 years, one of our favourite local spots, Voulez-Vous Café, has its last day today. Owner Sean is looking for a new location along Queen Street. Let’s hope it’s nearby.
Thanks for being such a great community gathering spot.

It’s disturbing that rising rents are forcing our local gathering places to move elsewhere. R.I.P. Red Rocket at Queen and Vancouver as well. That one didn’t work out too well as anyone walking by the now-empty 1402 Queen East will attest.

Tango Palace continues in the same spot. Landlord is key. Or owning your own building.

All the best to Voulez-Vous.

The Beaches Jazz Festival continues until Sunday. The main Saturday-Sunday concerts are now at Woodbine Park, Coxwell and Eastern – easy for us to get to. See the musical lineup at Woodbine Park Friday July 25 to Sunday July 27, 2014.

Woodbine Park has been buzzing this summer, it’s great to walk over to so many free events. With the many music festivals there, the farmer’s market at Jonathan Ashbridge Park, the flea market at the Ashbridge Estate, we have a lot going on close by.

Speaking of Jonathan Ashbridge Park, this Sunday evening July 27 come out to see a movie in the park. This is from Councillor McMahon’s office:

“Last 2014 Movie Night with Councillor McMahon

Once again this summer, Councillor McMahon has been hosting a series of free movie nights in our local parks. There is just one more left for this summer – hope to see you there! Come at 8 pm with your blankets and chairs. Movie begins at dusk.

Sunday, July 27

Jonathan Ashbridge Park, 20 Woodward Ave.”
