Chocolate. Chocolate-making classes. Chocolate-making classes in a lesbian-owned store. Does it get any better?

The class originally scheduled for October 24 has been moved to Wednesday, November 1 (7 to 8:30 p.m.), but all the other details stay the same. You can still learn how to make truffles in the company of other chocolate-covered gals, and take home a dozen of them. The truffles, not the gals.

These private classes are $42 per person (including tax). That includes instruction, supplies, and the truffles you’ll take home. It doesn’t include other chocolates you may want to buy while you’re there. 

Classes are at Decadence Chocolates (70 Sherbrook): https://www.decadencechocolates.ca  

You’ll learn some things about chocolate, watch how a ganache is made, and then roll and dip your truffles. Ooo la la. 

Email praxis2121@gmail.com by October 20 if you want to attend. Payment will be required in advance to secure the booking. Maximum 12 people.

SYNOPSIS (https://www.cineplex.com/Movie/the-carmilla-movie)

It has been five years since Laura and Carmilla vanquished the apocalypse and Carmilla became a bonafide mortal human. They have settled in to a cozy apartment in downtown Toronto; Laura continues to hone her journalism skills while Carmilla adjusts to a non-vampire lifestyle. Their domestic bliss is suddenly ruptured when Carmilla begins to show signs of “re-vamping” – from a fondness for bloody treats to accidental biting – while Laura has started having bizarre, ghostly dreams. Enlisting their old friends from Silas University, the couple must now uncover the unknown supernatural threat that’s tied to Carmilla’s past.

Nuit Blanche

  • September 30 (9-10 p.m.)
  • Cinematheque 100 Arthur Street

Toronto-based group Drunk Feminist Films brings feminists together to dissect their problematic Hollywood favourites with a drink in hand (alcoholic or otherwise) to mock the gender stereotyping they see at work in Hollywood filmmaking. They host regular sold out public screenings as well as webisodes and other online content with outlets including CBC and VICE. As their mandate goes, “At Drunk Feminist Films, we would rather laugh than cry our way through Hollywood representations of gender, race, sexuality, class and other aspects of identity.” Drunk Feminist Films produces lighthearted events and media that use cocktail-fuelled feminist commentary to tease apart the tropes of mainstream movies. Seeing as how they are based in Toronto the group has prepared a special video introduction for the Winnipeg screening which compiles some of their funniest episodes and sharply satirical analyses. Featuring much laughter and clips from The Bodyguard, Crossroads, Save the Last Dance, Gone Girl, Love Actually, A League of their Own, Twilight and Burlesque!

Plays With:

Snapperdoodle / Directed by Arlea Ashcroft & Andrea Von Wichert, 2007, Canada, 4 min / A woman paints with her vagina to please the art hungry masses that crowd her gallery and her life.

Generously Sponsored by Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and On Screen Manitoba. Coinciding with Culture Days, Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is an all night exploration and celebration of contemporary art. These events are free to the public and encourage and celebrate arts and culture in our community.
