As many of you know from last night, Pivot’s search for a new venue has been successful. As of April 22nd, we will be coming to you from The Steady Café, located at 1051 Bloor St West. The Steady is a known entity for Toronto book types, as a host of many launches as well as home for our friends at Speakeasy Reading Series.
How do I get to The Steady?
For most you, the new location will be a quicker commute. If you live anywhere at or north of Bloor, or east of the west end, just get on the subway and go to Dufferin Station. From there, it’s two blocks east on the south side.
The Steady has a front room, a long hallway, and then a back room where we will do our thing. Their beer selection is on point, and they do bar snacks. The owner and bar staff know reading series and should be great hosts.
We have signed on for the last four shows of our 2015 Spring Season, on April 22nd, May 6th, May 20th, and June 3rd. Once we go through those shows, we’ll evaluate how it went (and, I imagine, The Steady will evaluate us) and decide whether we want to re-up as a permanent part of their schedule.
So, please let us know what you think of the place either before or after we start using it. Our general anonymous feedback form can be used for that.
Thanks everyone who suggested venues or followed up with friends. We definitely felt the love during our moment of crisis. Onward and upward and all that.
Jake and Lex.
