Corktown, Toronto eNewsletter for the week of December 7, 2015

PARTY TIME: The big news this week is that it’s time for the annual Corktown Christmas Party!

This neighbourhood-wide event will take place this Sunday, December 13 from 5 to 9 p.m. Our gracious hosts this year will be Odin Cafe + Bar (514 King East) and Socrates Apallas, local realtor.

Join your neighbours for some holiday cheer! We’ll have live music, a silent auction, free hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and more!

It’s always a great time. If you’re new to the neighbourhood and looking to get to know some fellow Corktowners, this is an excellent way to get started. You can RSVP on Facebook.
