Stations of the Heart

Lawyer by profession, writer by avocation, Darlene Madott practices family law on Bond Street, across from St. Michael’s Choir School and Cathedral.

Ben McNally’s bookstore at Bay and Queen carries her Stations of the Heart, which the author says would make a wonderful gift for Valentine’s or post-Christmas giving: the way to anyone’s heart being “an unexpected gift at an unexpected time.”

“Sensual, vivid, intense,” Madott’s women remain open and vulnerable, despite heart break and betrayal: from station to station, each is on a singular pilgrimage toward joy, intent on embracing life openly and courageously; her men understood with a rare forgiveness.  Madott’s fiction has garnered literary awards. Stations of the Heart is her 6th collection of interconnected stories. Her 7th, Making Olives and Other Family Secrets (Ripasso) will be launched at the Columbus Centre, May 14, 2014, and can be pre-ordered through Ben McNally’s.

March 26th is Purple Day for Epilepsy Awareness and we need your help!!!

Across the country on March 26th individuals and groups will be participating in Purple Day to raise public awareness about epilepsy.

Here in Toronto, Epilepsy Toronto will be working with community groups, schools, businesses, and hospitals to help raise awareness about epilepsy. We are asking you to take part as a Purple Day Ambassador and help us get information about epilepsy on Purple Day!

Started in 2008 by Cassidy Megan, a nine-year-old Nova Scotia student who wanted to educate her school after being diagnosed with epilepsy, Purple Day has spread across Canada and was officially recognized by Parliament in 2012.

Epilepsy is an important issue in our community. Across the country 1 in 100 people live with epilepsy, meaning 40,000 people in Toronto from all walks of life and professions are affected by the disorder. Some have seizures that can disrupt their lives on a daily basis; others can manage with medication or surgery. What they all have in common is a public that often misunderstands or is misinformed about the realities of living with epilepsy.

We are asking for your support to wear purple, hand out epilepsy information, hang a purple day poster or incorporate purple into your window display. With your support we can build awareness of epilepsy throughout the community, breakdown barriers and stigmas and raise funds to allow Epilepsy Toronto to continue to support people living with epilepsy.

Contact Brandon for flyers, buttons and posters at brandon@epilepsytoronto.org

What's New in Downtown Yonge

The World’s Biggest Bookstore scheduled to close at the end of March

Toronto, ON ‐ Paracom Realty Corporation, Brokerage announces its appointment as the exclusive listing/leasing broker for 20 Edward Street, currently the World’s Biggest Bookstore, scheduled to close at the end of March 2014.

The new property owner, Lifetime Developments, is envisioning an exciting and transformational new Restaurant Row for the site that will be ready in time for TIFF 2015.

Conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Toronto steps from Yonge & Dundas Square and The Toronto Eaton Centre, this new culinary mecca at 20 Edward St. will add to the ever improving landscape of the area, including the recently announced flagship Nordstrom’s and Sax Fifth Avenue stores.

Designed by Turner Fleisher Architects, with multi‐level patio opportunities, soaring ceiling heights, column free space, and common ‘back of house’ elements, this new restaurant row will be the best dining experience Toronto has to offer.

With 250 feet of frontage, each of the 4 restaurants will have numerous eye catching signage and branding opportunities to pull in the millions of yearly patrons from the many office buildings, stores, hotels, universities, theatre and entertainment offerings Yonge and Dundas has to offer.

“We are really excited to work on this project and know that being steps from Toronto’s busiest intersection the site will attract the best ‘New to Market’ operators along with established Canadian brands and international chefs and concepts. 20 Edward Street will be Toronto's ultimate restaurant destination” says Jordan Karp, Vice‐President, Retail Advisory Services and lead for Paracom on the project.

For further details please visit www.twentyedwardretail.com and/or contact the Listing Brokerage for comment.

March Café Charity: Earth Rangers

Mission: To educate and empower children to Bring Back the Wild

About Earth Rangers: Picture every person you know working to protect biodiversity. Picture all of these people acknowledging the impacts of their small, daily actions. Picture our planet thriving because a new generation of leaders is mindful about its health. At Earth Rangers we imagine this every day. We believe children can make it a reality.

We all get busy and forget how our daily actions affect the world around us. We forget that, while important, we’re just one part of a huge ecosystem. Children don’t – they’re passionate about protecting life on earth. When they learn how their behaviours can help, they don’t ignore them, they act. Earth Rangers provides children with the opportunity to protect animals, to improve the environment and to make a difference. We are the Kids’ Conservation Organization.

The Carlton Cinema presents THE ROOM with special guests Tommy Wiseau & Greg Sestero March 14-16

Sometimes a movie is so strange, so different, so indescribably odd, that it transcends the boundaries of bad and becomes something altogether wonderful. The Carlton Cinema, already known for embracing so-bad-it’s-good films such as the sold-out “Sharknado,” are excited to be bringing Tommy Wiseau’s cult film masterpiece THE ROOM to Toronto audiences.

THE ROOM, often referred to as ‘The Citizen Kane of bad movies’, is coming to The Carlton March 14-16 with special appearances by writer/director/star Tommy Wiseau & co-star Greg Sestero.  Sestero has recently penned a tell-all book on the making of The Room, titled “The Disaster Artist”, which has just had its film rights bought by James Franco!

Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero will be on hand for a meet and greet / Q&A period after each of the following screenings:

Friday, March 14 – 9:00, 9:30, 10:30, 11:45 & 12:15
Saturday, March 15 – 9:00, 9:30, 10:30, 11:45 & 12:15
Sunday, March 16 – 9:00, 9:30, 10:30

Carlton Cinema, 20 Carlton St. (at Yonge) $15 in advance, $18 at the door - Tickets available in person or online at www.picatic.com/TheRoomToronto

Beer, wine & mixed drinks (including “Scotchka” - the odd Scotch/Vodka mix characters are seen drinking in the film) will be available at our bar to enjoy in the auditorium.

The Room merchandise, including blu rays, posters and bobbleheads, will be available for purchase in the Carlton lobby.

THE ROOM
March 14, 15 & 16 – ONLY at the Carlton

TOMMY WISEAU & GREG SESTERO

Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored of him and decides to seduce Johnny's best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again.

The film has cultivated a dedicated audience akin to The Rocky Horror Picture Show and screenings of THE ROOM are known for their raucous audiences who delight in participating with the film as it plays.  Lines of dialogue are screamed back at the screen and viewers gleefully throw plastic spoons through the air.

DON FRANCKS, SUNDAY NIGHTS IN MARCH AT THE JAZZ CELLAR


Jazz Bistro, the home for live jazz in the city, is pleased to present legendary vocalist Don Francks as part of a new series that takes place Sunday evening in The Jazz Cellar, our beautiful 3rd floor lounge.

At 82 years young, Francks has just released “21st Century Francks,” a live recording captured in 2002 at The Top O’ the Senator. He will be performing songs from the CD, with many surprises in store along the way.

When Don Francks opens his mouth to sing, he takes his audience on a journey. This celebrated singer and actor is widely regarded as one of the finest and most authentic jazz voices in Canada, having released several recordings including “Jackie Gleason Says: No One in This World is Like Don Francks” (with guitar legend Lenny Breau) , “Lost and Alone” (featuring orchestra arrangements by conductor Patrick Williams) and the original motion-picture soundtrack to Finian’s Rainbow; among others.

Francks has starred in many CBC television specials with jazz compatriots Jimmy Dale, Guido Basso, pianist Maury Kaye and the late, great Ron Collier. In the sixties he moved to New York City where he performed on The Jackie Gleason Show, sang at The Blue Angel, and recorded a live album at the Village Vanguard. He also made several appearances on the Johnny Carson, Mike Douglas, Dick Cavett and Merv Griffin shows. Next stop: Hollywood, where he guest-starred in shows like The Wild Wild West, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mannix, and Mission: Impossible. “La Femme Nikita”, “The Listener”, “My Bloody Valentine” and “I’m Not There”. His list of work as a voice-over artist for ads and cartoons is simply too vast to even begin mentioning!

Don Francks will be performing on Sunday, March 9, 16, 23 and 30.  The music starts at 8pm and there is only a $5.00 cover charge.
