Monday, May 15: No You’re the Wvrst
What better way to start the week than with $5 pints? Add in top-ranked fries, a boisterous atmosphere and lots of great friends to hang with and it almost feels like Friday. Hosted by the Barley’s Angels Toronto Chapter, head to WVRST (609 King Street West) from 6 to 9pm and treat yourself to a wild Monday night. This is a women’s only event, but as always your favourite men are welcome to join after 9pm!
