As part of the giant, weekend-long Blackout Anniversary, there's a Critical Mass organized for 8:45 pm. Judging by the article here: http://torontoist.com/2009/08/its_back_to_black.php it's tomorrow, Friday the 14th.
Can anyone confirm this? Thanks
Here are a few paragraphs pulled from that page:
Everyone has a story for that night when the lights went out.
It has now been six years since the Northeast Blackout of 2003, when on August 14, 2003, about fifty million people in Ontario and the eastern United States unexpectedly lost their power and were forced to quickly adapt without the amenity of electricity.
Three parties are planned to celebrate the anniversary of the blackout. The first (the aforementioned Blackout on Ossington Avenue) takes place on Friday between Dundas Street and Queen Street, starting from 8 p.m. with twenty-eight venues, buskers, live acoustic music, parking meter parties (you pay the parking meter and create your own mini-party), all under candlelight. There will also apparently be a not-to-be-missed "big surprise" at 10 p.m.
The second party is a group bike ride organized by Critical Mass, meeting at the Bloor and Spadina intersection at 8:45 p.m.
Anyone know how long these tend to last? I can't find a link to a page devoted to Critical Mass, though I'm probably not trying hard enough.
