Somebody put me on the list and I got invited to the YYZ LIVING magazine second issue launch party at Ultra Supper Club on Queen St West on Thursday 16 June 2011 evening 8pm. It wasn’t hard to get invited to this event, everyone was there.
The evening started at 8pm upstairs on the white paint of the Ultra patio which had just come into shade cast by taller brick buildings west on Queen St. The food was tasty. The free drink was orange juice and champagne w strawberry
The two bartenders on the south bar were overworked from the start.
It was a nice night that actually got warmer when the sun went down. It was downright steamy later.
This highly anticipated party did indeed bring out some interesting people from the world of fashion art and media, and this really was an almost perfect evening for an outdoor patio party.
The YYZ LIVING Magazine launched its summer issue here to build a following among a class of Toronto’s most prolific influence-rs, and people that appreciate a distinct ambiance of class and glamour. The atmosphere the night of June 16th was perfect for the club’s exclusive patio opening party of the summer. It was a night of mingling, cocktails, stylish hors d’oeuvres, and dancing.. but there was no dancing. There were no hors d’oevres either.

Later the Wine Ladies were talking to a well known rapper “PB $TYL$” and his partner model “FREE”. I had to get a picture and capture that …
Forgive me I forgot or misspell anyone’s names and if anyone knows please leave them in the comments and I’ll add them to this post later.

The north station bartenders were fast as hell; they were both really pretty, super efficient drink making machines. I really regret that I didn’t have the presence of mind to make a movie of them mixing drinks – they were so machine-like. arrgh I get the best ideas after the events.
