Rock Steady with the Drake and TIFF Milé Mothibe August 22, 2014 Art, Bars & Pubs, Celebrity, Events, Festivals, FOOD & DRINK, LIFESTYLE, Music, Night Life, Shows, WHAT'S UP T.O. The Drake Hotel (or just “the Drake”) is known for throwing wicked launch parties, particularly when it comes to getting the biggest film festival in the world underway. The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is but a couple of weeks away making it time to start gearing up for a “last call at 4am” soiree and there is just one rule: “Good vibes only.” It’s that easy. Last year we went Down the Line with Keys N Krates. In two weeks, the Drake invites you to Rock Steady with the X Ambassadors and Toronto’s very own, Brendan Philip. Get your street cred on and dress to impress with the street-style inspired décor that awaits you. The Pressure Drop (brought to you by Havana Club three year-old añejo rum and bourbon-aged brew from Goose Island) , is the drink of the night and you can enjoy it while getting a free tattoo by Speakeasy. If permanent ink is not your style, then get your nails did by Pinky’s Nails. As if all that wasn’t enough—stand a chance to win, as Topshop Canada awards one lucky winner the ultimate TIFF prize. Think black carpet with a $500 personal shopping experience. Wrap up the festival with tickets to the closing night film and party and sleepover at The Drake Hotel. Like they say: “From live music to great food, our art exhibits and nineteen unique hotel rooms; there’s always something happening at Drake.” Come one, come all—from dusk til dawn, think you can handle it?
