Friday Night Live at the ROM

Drinks. DJs. Dinosaurs. History just got hot” is the intriguing and simple one-liner the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is using to promote their 10-week program called Friday Night Live. I attended the event on Friday, May 3rd and the theme for the evening was Fashion, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI).

First of all, I’d like to say THANK YOU! This is what I’ve been waiting for! An event targeted to my demographic, that is affordable, accessible and so much fun!!

There was a wide selection of food choices, from oriental noodles to waffles and ice cream. There were also a few bars that you could obtain your beverages from and spend your ROM bucks.

The music was great with the DJs spinnin’ some beats and there was a bit of dancing going on! You could also go and listen to lectures relating to the theme of Fashion, including one from the Textile Museum curator, Sarah Quinton.

Not only was all of this going on, but you got to check out the museum as well! I especially liked chillin’ with the dinos!

This event reminded me a lot of N8, a hip and happening event that takes place in the Netherlands. I think it’s a brilliant idea and highly recommend it to everyone! It’s definitely worth it at only $9 for entry!

Hopefully I will be able to attend another one soon!

If you have attended or plan to attend an FNLROM event, please let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments!
