That's right y'all. Hugg Passion four years running! Come blow off some holiday stress!

Like usual we'll be playing only the best music from throughout the year. All 2009 all night - rock, pop, indie, electronic, rap, danse - everything. But this year we're moving to the comfy confines of The Double Deuce Saloon on Queen just west of Beaconsfield. If you haven't checked out this new bar (opened in 2009, natch) here's your chance. And for all the old fogies things get going at 9 if you wanna make an early appearance... ;)

2009 was a great year for tunes. Please join us.

Music by Huggs & Sarah Smallfry.

Hosted by Grace.

Happy Holidays!

9pm - FREE (all night)
Double Deuce - 1168 Queen Street West

Miss Murphy

Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack, has a photography website completely dedicated to Brit. She is the subject of every photo, and there are tons amazing shots. I especially like the few I have posted, but they are all worth checking out. I still can't believe she is gone! So sad.

R.I.P. Brittany Murphy

"You're a virgin who can't drive" - one of the best lines of all time, from my favourite movie of all time, delivered by Brittany Murphy. Clueless, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Girl Interrupted, Spun...she was a fave in my books that's for sure! Devastated by her sudden death, she will be missed.

Tea Time in TO

To top off today's date with BK we stopped by The Red Tea Box for tea time. I believe we got the Mad Hatter's Bento. Deliciousssssssssssss! You should go.

Holiday Horrors

This holiday season I have come to realise that Travel Agents are worthless human beings. That may sound harsh, but after my recent personal travel trauma, I don't care. Let's see now, when my flight to London was booked last June, the appointed travel agent misspelled my name on the confirmed ticket. Let's fast forward to December 16th 2009, the day I arrived at Heathrow Airport to return home for the holidays, only to find out that I had missed my 9am flight. Why did I miss my 9am flight? Well, I missed it because the flight I was aware of was at 3pm. Long story short, the same travel agent forgot to notify me of the completely different flight that I had been moved to by Air Canada. Genius, I tell you. After 7 hours straight of tears and standby, I returned the next morning to get on a new confirmed flight to Toronto via Ottawa (gross). Feeling sorry for myself I did a bit of Duty Free shopping that started with a hott pink YSL lipstick and ended with my new monstrous Kurt Geiger's above (a few bits in between but they are not worth mentioning). Do we loooooooove these bitch clogs or what!? I do. xo
