The Beneficiary:

The Ottawa Fringe Festival "is a forum that unites artists and audiences in a fun, exploratory environment. The guiding principles of the Fringe include unrestricted artistic expression, accessibility and community development. The Fringe encourages artists to explore and test boundaries and make bold choices in the creation of art."

The Eats:

-Curries - Indian Restaurant and Sweet House

-La Vecchia Trattoria

(228 Preston Street - 613-230-0009) - Ottawa's Little Italy is once again represented, this time by the Italian fare from La Vecchia Trattoria.

-assorted sushi

this selection was added after the unfortunate and unexpected closing of the planned food sponsor Greek Greek. This restaurant has given previously to numerous events in the artist community and will be missed. The assortment of maki sushi will include: oshinko (pickled diakon), cucumber, fried tofu, inari (tofu pockets)

The Beats:

Always free CD's to giveaway from Six Degrees Records and always swanky in house beats.

beats w/ Lance Baptiste

Live Art:

Last month we all witnessed an opening of DASER's amazing canvass work at the Mercury Lounge. This month we will get to witness his work in progress as he paints live in the Mercury Lounge.

Special Guest Host:

Mike MacNeil (a.k.a. the door guy) has been the longest standing, most dedicated volunteer to World Beats and Eats, having donated his time to every single event since the first in January. For this reason he is perfectly suited to assume the responsibility of guest host for the evening as Volunteer/Organizer Brad Campeau (a.k.a. B Rad) takes a night off to celebrate his birthday for this Special Birthday Edition of World Beats and Eats.


November 4th - 7-10pm
