The ZReport - November 4th - 11th

Fall back! Hopefully y’all enjoyed that extra hour of sleep on Sunday, and are settling in to the beginnings of winter. Don’t be blue, we’ve got a lot of fun for you.

This weeks new game is the most successful arcade cabinet Sega released in the 1980’s ‘Out Run’. It’s non-linear game play design was a huge influence on later video games, and the cabinet even played a role in inspiring the ‘SynthWave’ genre of music.

We just tapped the ‘Go Ahead’ from Left Field, a raspberry & hibiscus gose, which we haven’t had in our line-up since the day we opened and it sold out in a week. Do yourself a favour and check this beer out this week.

At the Danforth Music Hall, another full slate of shows this week. Tiffany Young and Bea Miller kick the week off with a one-two punch of pop, followed by a bit of comedy with John Hodgman and The Football Ramble on Wednesday and Thursday. Canuck Matt Mays brings his rootsy rock to the Hall on Friday, and finally Big Wild will be dropping the beat on Saturday night.

Over here we’ve got an especially trippy version of Replay Thursdays w. DJ Vinyl Villain. Hip hop heads will want to roll in on Friday to listen to DJ Unknown, and on Saturday, DJ Jet Carson plays an open format set.

Ride free with them high falcons in the sun...
