New Year’s Eve at The Gladstone Hotel

Hi. I hope you've had a great first week of 2018! All is fine here, in spite of record breaking cold weather we've been having in Toronto, which has meant facing the probability of frostbite within only a few minutes of going outside.

Such frigid temperatures resulted in Nick, Meghan and me standing in the longest coat-check line any of us had ever experienced, as everyone got rid of their multi layers before heading to the dance floor at The Gladstone Hotel's New Year's Eve Disco Party.

The wait was worth it, though, and was made as enjoyable as any long line-up could be, with a bar stategically located at the halfway point, a live dj picking upbeat tunes, and the friendly people behind us.

Our first stop at the multi-roomed event was the ballroom, where 6-piece band called Tush were performing their original dance music. They were great!

Following Tush's set, we headed to the Melody Room Lounge, where a friend of Meghan's, deejay Gramera, was spinning, accompanied by Dennis P on the saxophone. Lots more dancing there.

The room was decorated to resemble Warhol's Factory, with silver walls and soup can lamps.

It was a really fun party; being there as the clock struck midnight, started our year off on a very good note, indeed!

↑ Thanks to Corby Spirit and Wine, public transit was free from 7pm to 7am. We were grateful to partake on our way to and from the venue, 'cause baby, it was cold out there! ↑

I hope you had fun last weekend too, ringing it the new year exactly as you like it to be done!

Thanks for reading.
