Beer and History night Nov 3rd.

outdoor, community-wide escape room style of Magic on The Danny, (Danforth) Sunday, November 4 from 11am- 5pm

Sunday, November 4th from 11am – 5pm, Magic on The Danny will challenge game-players to complete creative puzzles hidden within the businesses of the Danforth Mosaic Business Improvement Area (BIA).

 

The family-friendly mystery event is the latest initiative from east-end escape-room Looking Glass Adventures, and sponsored by the Danforth Mosaic BIA.

 

Owner of Looking Glass Adventures, Christine Hibbard, worked with local business owners along the Danforth to conjure up the magical storyline for game day. The escape-room style event tasks participants with collecting secret stones to unlock an all-powerful wand, while solving puzzles and interacting with mysterious characters along the way!

“The outdoor, community-wide escape room style of Magic on The Danny will highlight the uniqueness of the area, our businesses, and the kind of community feel we have here. It’s a hands-on experience,” shares Hibbard. “We’re creating puzzles at each location that reflect the business. The challenges are immersive and as players walk around the Danforth, they not only get to enjoy the mystery, but also get to see the neighbourhood in a new light.”
Featuring a range of game-locations from restaurants, to coffee shops, art studios, and retail stores, Magic on the Danny is sure to intrigue players while highlighting the diversity of the neighbourhood.

Good morning Halloween, a Halloween face painting brought from nature

2720 Dundas St West, a giant pink Junction sign, that simply states as a developer we know nothing about the community nor do we care too.

Slate Asset Management which honestly states they are a private equity firm, which values real estate and seeks to redevelop to unlock value in land location, and use.  What that simply means is they develop to bring the highest returns to their investors. A activity that many people approve of and seek. However when that effort moves so aggressively to diminish the character of a community and diminish the value of many other people life investment in the community it is wrong.

Slate Asset’s lab to put a large pink sign at simply the word Junction, is mildly put in bad taste, and even more disturbing ugly and disregards the Junction’s ethics and meaning built up by so many people.

This is a part of this building most Junction person do not want to happen.

A place to see & play with illusions, the new Museum of Illusions in Toronto

Just bought across from the Young Peoples theatre on Front Street there is a rather interesting new attraction being built, It’s a place to see & play with illusions. Inside daily people are working diligently.

Text from there site,

The Museum of Illusions in Toronto brings you a space suitable both for social and entertaining tours into the world of illusions which has delighted all generations. It’s a unique place for new experiences and fun with friends and family. Not only is it a place for children who adore coming, but also a place for parents, couples, grandmothers and grandfathers.

Be brave enough to jump in a illusion created by the Vortex Tunnel! It will drive you crazy and make you believe you’re heavily struggling just to make a step forward through a rotating cylinder – on a surface so stable and flat! See yourself on the ceiling of the room, let yourself free in an Infinity room, resist the laws of gravity and size ratio, and make pictures of yourself in EVERY POSSIBLE POSE!

Enjoy in our collection of holograms, look closer at every optical illusion and observe thoroughly each installation. They are such a brilliant, playful reminder that our assumptions about the world we perceive are often, nothing but a specter of illusions.

The genuine heritage of showpieces will more certainly make your jaw drop!

Amusing and awesome tricks will teach you about vision, perception, the human brain and science so it will be easier to perceive why your eyes see things which your brain cannot understand. Make sure you visit our playroom with intriguing and educational games and puzzles. These brain bashers are definitely great fun but tend to be frustrating as well.
