April Shindig – Featuring Vanessa Cardui

Looking for an independent friendly venue to grab a drink and show off your fancy duds? Got a hankering to show off your coat of brown or the slinky dress you just bought your wife? Assuming your Cap’t lent you the funds of course…

Join us for our April shindig. Conveniently located a short 15-20 minute walk from the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo grounds, the shindig features song, dance, mudder’s milk and lots of good spirits and laughter.

Along with being a shiny way to get to know your fellow browncoats, April’s shindig is a charity fundraising event. Proceeds will be split between the Edmonton Youth Empowerment & Support Services (YESS) and Calgary’s In-Definite Arts Society.

If you can’t be on ship this is the best place in the ‘verse to be. Shindig highlights:

  • Costumes encouraged.
  • Shiny door prizes.
  • Member’s only prize.
  • Cash bar.

Eventbrite - Calgary Shindig featuring Vanessa Cardui

Tickets will also be available from the Alberta Browncoats Society (#503) and Cool Toys (#1105) booths at Calgary Expo on Friday and Saturday.

  • When: Saturday, 27 April 2013 at 7:00 PM – midnight (MDT)
  • Entertainment Guest: Calgary’s own Vanessa Cardui.

This shindig owes it’s existence to the sponsorship, planning & organizational skills of Calgary’s Cool-Toys.ca.  If you’re attending Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo please drop by the Cool-Toys.ca booth (#1105) and say hello.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not an official Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo event. Rather, it’s an after party taking place on the same weekend as CCEE.

NOTE THE SECOND: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the venue has changed for this event. It will now be held at Ramsay Community Hall (1136 – 8th Street SE, Calgary).

It’s time for a shindig!

Don your best flowery bonnet, grab your rainstick and join us for our first meet and greet. Listen to shiny music, partake in the Kaylee inspired buffet (nibbles), win a door prize and make new friends.

Join us Saturday, Nov 17 at the Alberta Place Suite Hotel (10049-103 St). Doors open at 7:30pm.

Marian Call – In concert – In conjunction with Happy Harbor Comics (10729 – 104 Avenue, Edmonton) we will be hosting a Marian Call concert on Monday, June 18, 2012.

Alaskan singer-songwriter Marian Call is returning to Alberta. Her music has been described by fans as “funky acoustic joy jazz” — she plays eclectic, humorous and heartfelt songs that appeal to crowds of all ages and demographics. Her signature Underwood typewriter, rain stick, and kazoo can be heard in most of her local (and national) performances.

Marian is not being paid directly for her performance; we’re suggesting a donation of $10-$15 per person to show your appreciation of her talents.
