Visitors will walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them. Insane! Read More

Veteran celebrities such as Michael Clarke Duncan, Teena Marie, Mekhi Phifer, Rapheal Sadiq and Golden Brooks were in attendance as well as some fresh new faces such as Bresha Webb, Karimah Westbrook and Kendyl Joi. Doug E. Fresh kept the party jumpin’ as he played Emcee host for the evening.

Comedy is an impervious profession in the entertainment field. Night after night dedicated comics travel great distances to triumph or bomb the stage. They do this because they are passionate and addicted to the art form and laughter is their sedative. Read More
I had no plans for Memorial Day weekend. Work-wise the previous month had been somewhat brutal so I was actually looking forward to doing absolutely nothing for the next few days. Doing nothing is figurative for catching up on some reading, watching a bit of TV or taking in a movie etc. I sank into my couch and was thinking about making a dent in an 800 page book on Mao Tse Tung that I purchased many months ago but never got around to reading. Yup. Finish a few books and maybe I can actually be as intellectual as I pretend. Just as I as was about to go dig through a stack of other unread books to find it, my phone rang. It was DJ Higher calling to invite me to hang out with him. He said he was going to be spinning at four different parties and it was going to be fresh and it was popin’ off right now! My excuse to decline didn’t come to me fast enough so I graciously accepted the offer. Besides, who am I to refuse a reasonable request from a close friend. I guess the books and my intellectualism would have to wait.
So I ended up on Monday night in this spot on Sunset Boulevard called Libertine. If my memory serves me, a Libertine is an individual devoid of any moral restraints sanctioned by the larger society. (In all honesty I just googled that bit of trivia). The name is intriguing enough, but I was sure that it held a more intrinsic meaning to the owner. I won’t go as far to say that what I witnessed was a referendum on morality. I will however state that this establishment goes out of its way to distance itself from the plasticized scene sanctioned by the larger Hollywood society .
