On this week’s Apartment 613 Live, Ryan is our lonely host for an hour full of local happenings.
Last month’s Nuit Blanche was reportedly attended by something close to 30,000 people, and next year’s nuit can only get bigger. The art-filled night’s organizers are already in the planning stages, securing sponsorship and debating layouts. Nuit Blanche 2013 is planned for September 21st. Visual Arts Editor Diane Bond joins Ryan by phone to offer her perspective on these early planning stages.
Next, Amie Beausoleil of Unshaven Mavens discusses the benefits of growing underarm hair for charity. Every October, Ottawa women sign up with Unshaven Mavens, vowing not to shave in support of Rethink Breast Cancer. Tonight, the Mavens are throwing a Red CarPIT bash to honour their supporters. Awards will be presented, including the “Jolie Pit” for the nicest armpit and the “Brad Pit” for the fullest hair growth.
The restaurant Union Local 613 recently ran into some difficulty when Service Ontario told them their name needed to change. The reason? The name might confuse people into thinking the diner was an actual union. Now that the province is allowing the restaurant to keep its name, co-owner Matt Stanton joins Ryan to tell the whole story.
