Spacing’s fifth anniversary party and new issue

Read more articles by

The next issue of Spacing that you’ll have in your hands will likely be our fifth anniversary issue (see larger version of the cover).

Spacing launched December 3rd, 2003 at the now-defunct 360 Legion Hall near Queen West and Spadina. We weren’t even sure if there would be a second issue, so we feel quite fortunate to have reached 13 issues over five long years.

Next week we’ll reveal more details about the content of the issue set to hit newsstands in the first week of December. But we wanted to make you aware of our release/anniversary party before anyone else books you that night for a holiday party.

WHEN: Wed. December 10th, 7pm-1am
WHERE: The Great Hall, 1087 Queen Street West at Dovercourt
HOW MUCH: $5 for subscribers or $10 (includes mag)
RSVP: please note that, in accordance with our liquor license, you need to RSVP to this event. You may do so via the Facebook event listing, or (if you don’t have a Facebook profile) by email to

We’ll have large panels displaying the finalists from our thinkTORONTO urban design ideas competition. Rannie Turingan will be manning the photo portrait station again. Rose Bianchini will be filming people’s answer to the question: name five things you like about Toronto. And,  saxaphonist and former Shuffle Demon Richard Underhill will perform solo (he performed at our launch party in 2003, bringing this party full circle). And lastly, the DJ trio Track Meet will provide us with danceable music throughout the night.
