Nuit Blanche 2012

White Night. Toronto’s annual dusk til dawn city-wide art crawl. For some people, Nuit Blanche is about experiencing culture and discovering works of wonder. For others, its just an excuse to pull an all-nighter with friends and party on the streets. If you’re lucky, you do both. If you’re crazy, you do so from the early evening to the early morning. This year, I ventured out on Sat Sept 29 at 7pm and didn’t get home until Sun Sept 30 at 7am. Not bad for someone who originally planned to “skip it” this year. I’m glad I didn’t. I tried my best to document my 12 hour journey below.

I ended my night (or should I say my morning) at #86 – All Night Convenience. I was ridiculously happy to take home these glowing groceries. Shout outz to my NB partners-in-crime, Rannie and Carly. Until next year, bonne nuit!
