You never know who you are surrounded by. It could be your neighbor, your coworker, even your best friend at school.  Vampires have seamlessly melted into modern day society and have lived side by side regular citizens for hundreds of years now.
But all that changed in October 2014.
This is the night primal instincts go unchecked.  Blood thirsty vampires will give chase to transform citizens to increase their numbers and strength, while citizens will run to protect their mortality.  The hunt begins when the sun sets.
Be sure to check the website for upcoming cities, dates and times.

Anne Rice and the Vampire genre; Why are we so fascinated?

Have you ever entered the word “Vampire” in your search engine just to see what comes up? Well, I have and besides the normal entertainment sites that promote everything with fangs, it is amazing to see the amount of genuine interest and legitimate lifestyle discussions that come up as a result of that one word query.
These results have me thinking, “What is our fascination with the myth that is the Vampire all about”? What is it about these lifeless creatures who existence was first promoted in the pages of Bram Stoker’s breakthrough novel, “Dracula”, that has intrigued us and prompted us to create a multitude of books, movies , television shows and games based upon them?   Read More

Bovine Sex Club
542 Queen Street West
Toronto, Ontario
M5V 2B5     416-504-4239

Few things are more fickle than fashion, but the club scene is one of those things. Even so, the fact that the moody Bovine Sex Club has been “in” since it opened in early ’91 isn’t too hard to figure. It could be the nifty Dada look. The result of local artist collaborations, or it could be the music, a mix of cutting edge rock, retro 80’s, punk, glam, metal, 70’s funk, and British pop. Located on Queen Street West in the mega city, Toronto, and open 7 days a week for your drinking pleasure.
