By popular demand, Foodsluts at Doll & Penny’s Café , the serial is now a book!
When Tony Correia moved to Vancouver in 1988 with the return portion of plane ticket purchased from a classified ad, he didn’t think he would last six months in the city. Twenty years and a popular newspaper serial later, comes Foodsluts at Doll & Penny’s Café, his memoir about the notorious drag cabaret located on Davie Street in the heart of Vancouver’s sleepy West End.
Set in the late 80’s and early 90’s, Foodsluts follows Tony as he explores Vancouver’s counterculture during the height of the AIDS crisis. With a cast of characters that include drag queens, prostitutes, go-go boys and the religious right, Foodsluts revisits a period in Vancouver’s history that has all but been erased. With queer spaces in Vancouver disappearing faster than developers can build glass towers, Foodsluts paints a portrait of a vibrant gay enclave in the heart of a conservative stronghold that you have to read to believe.

I haven’t had a vacation in almost a year so I decided to head down to Miami with some friends this past Easter weekend. I’ve never been and heard that it was fun. I found a flight for under $500 return and we rented an apartment just off of Lincoln Road Mall. I met up with three friends from Montreal and several friends from Toronto were also down there at the same time. It was fun to have a big group specially hanging out on the beach all day.

I’m excited about SKMPEEZ new styles for Spring Summer 2012. Not to mention they’ve also revamped their website. I’ve loved the designs and fit of this company from day one and they have been great friends of mine. I’m all about supporting Canadian businesses and the best part is they are based here in Toronto.
They new swimsuit styles are to die for specially the new BANDZ style which is a leaner cut than their previous styles and features a 2″ waistband which is super sexy! I’m off to Miami for Easter weekend and I am definitely gonna sport my BANDZ ZAP style swimsuit on the beach.
They’ve also ventured into men’s underwear, aptly names UNDEEZ and not only are the styles great but they are also very very comfortable. Trust me, I know. I have 2 pairs and I’m loving the stretchy fabric and wide waistband.

H&M has been teaming up with bloggers to get them to pick and style their favorite pieces from the Divided collection.
I think it’s a great idea to be able to show non-model people how to dress & style certain pieces and translate them from runway to street.
The hat-loving British blogger Carrie from wishwishwish.net is trying out some cute and sassy looks using the H&M/Divided Collection. Check out the video on the next part of the post.
Earlier this month was my birthday… my first birthday celebration in Toronto. There were also a few friend’s birthdays on the same month so a lot of social things happened. So here’s what went down and some Toronto spots to check out.
Feb. 13 – Monday was my friend’s birthday and we had dinner at a place called 416 Snack Bar which is just North of Queen Street West on 181 Bathurst. It’s a small place but it didn’t take us long to get a table. The food was great, they’re more like tapas which included steamed buns, Korean fried chicken, steak tartare and etc.
Feb. 14 – Single me spent Valentine’s day having Lychee martinis at my place with one of my friends. It was so nice of him to keep me company making sure I wasn’t alone. Tipsy Tuesday!
