DANNY MICHEL’S “SCHOOL NIGHT MONDAYS”

I’m pretty sure that I’ve already gone on record to say that Chris Hadfield is the coolest astronaut ever (duh). This was reconfirmed for me last Monday, to the quadrahyper-cosmicth degree (that’s a space term I learned from Chris, no big deal), when Chris Hadfield beamed himself in to be the special guest at the first week of Danny Michel’s Dakota Tavern March residency in Toronto!! Dude can not only fly spaceships… turns out he’s pretty good with an acoustic guitar and some self-penned tunes! His music flew a spaceship right into my heart. Did you ever watch Hadfield’s video about what it looks like when you cry in space? That was my reaction. Except for the space part. Danny Michel’s awesome “School Night Mondays” recognizes that not everyone can party until dawn every single night of the week (I can, of course), but that you might rather take in some good live music as opposed to being a slave to your Netflix queue. This is food for your soul (not to be confused with chicken soup) and you’ll still be home in bed by 11!

And for those of you who don’t mind staying up all night, The Beauties are back! Every Sunday night at the Dakota Tavern for the rest of the month, you can party until the wee hours of the morning.
