Caribana 2009: The Jams

Caribana 2009
Caribana 2009

The Caribana weekend is fast approaching, and with that said, Toronto will be bursting at its seams with a plethora of nightlife events, party revelers and celebrities.  For 4 nights (or 5 depending on how you look at it), well over 50 jams will take place as thousands upon thousands will celebrate Caribana in the Adelaide Street/Richmond Street vicinity.  This is, to many, the weekend to go out.  So, which jams are you going to?  We give you “Caribana 2009: The Jams”, a comprehensive guide to all the nightlife this Caribana weekend.

tips

Before trekking out to any of these events, please keep in mind that this is by far one of the busiest weekends in Toronto.  Expect long lines, pricey cover charges and large crowds of people.  To help minimize these issues, arrive early!  If your jam starts at 10pm, then show up for 10pm…not 12 am (as some establishments will increase their cover charge by the hour).  Even if you are a little early, you can always roam the streets for a bit and then come back.  It’s better than being stuck on the DVP/401/Gardiner at 11:15pm because everyone else is trying to get downtown, much like you.  This not only avoids the line-up, but it will also avoid paying more than you had anticipated.

Another way of beating the pricey cover charge (this weekend, promoters and establishments will usually charge double to quadruple the regular cover) is to buy advanced tickets, if available.  This will control the price you pay as most events will have advanced tickets that are much lower than if you paid at the door.

Have lots of patience.  There will be crowds, no matter where you go.  And most establishments will be at capacity, so please expect that.  There will also be more Police than usual in the entertainment district.  Keep that in mind.  And of course…please don’t be stupid: do not drink and drive!  Cab it or do breakfast club until the alcohol wears off.

“****EVERYONE CLEAR YOUR CARIBANA SATURDAY****
….because we’re blaming it all on the Alcohol!

Yes, we acknowledge the fact that there are better things in life than alcohol…. BUT…. alcohol makes up for not having them!  Some say the glass is half empty, some say the glass is half full, we say “are you gonna drink that?  Alcohol does not make you FAT – it makes you LEAN… against tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly people…

With that in mind, the good folks of Platinum Touch Ent are inviting all party people to come out on August 1st (Caribana Saturday) for a night of fun, bottle poppin’, good music, dancing, and overall good vibes at the most anticipated party of the year …“Blame it on the alcohol”.  The hangover from the last one is finally gone and it’s time to do it all over again, Caribana style! Seriously, what better time to blame it all on the alcohol than at the biggest festival of the year?

Be prepared to be musically overwhelmed by some of

Toronto’s biggest DJs:
DJ Na$ty from The Platinum Touch Family
Super K ( Black Reaction)
DJ Rych Kydd
DJ Spoonz
DJ Steallo

Masters of Ceremony:
MC Studz
Kamakacci Juice

Special Guest: Toronto’s very own:
JD Era
Jerzee Tha Icon
George Reefah
Jonny Roxx
and many more…
