HIT SHOW
LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE
ENDS RUN OCTOBER 30

Toronto, October  21, 2010 - Producers Michael Rubinoff and Daryl Roth today announced that their hit Toronto production of the award-winning Love, Loss, and What I Wore will end its hugely successful run on October 30 at the Panasonic Theatre.

The Toronto production began performances on July 16, 2010, winning both popular and critical acclaim and was extended twice.

"We've had a fantastic run of more than 3 months," said Rubinoff in announcing the closing date. "With 105 performances by the time we close, the Toronto run of Love, Loss, and What I Wore will be one of the longest running non-musicals in this city in the last decade," he continued. "I am gratified that it struck a chord with audiences and we look forward to sharing the show with new audiences across the country as we make plans to present it in other Canadian cities in the future."

An intimate collection of stories that cover some of life's most poignant moments and their corresponding wardrobe by sisters Nora Ephorn and Delia Ephron, it features a cast of five that changes every four weeks and is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman as well as personal reminiscences from the Ephrons and their friends.

By the time it takes its final bow on October 30, it will have featured four different star-studded casts with each cast bringing their own unique qualities to the piece.

(Images include, from the top, Trey Anthony, Leah Pinsent & Stacey Farber.)

Jewellery With A Conscience: Kind Karma

Jewellery With A Conscience: Kind Karma Check Out The Collection Kind Karma blends timeless jewellery with a social conscience. Founded in Toronto in 2017, the company makes classic jewellery pieces using a unique business model - the artisans who produce the handmade pieces are at-risk and homeless youth.  "I always wanted to be an entrepreneur," explains founder Laurinda Lee-Retter. "I wanted to give back." She combined her passions in Kind Karma. Laurinda serves as designer for the jewellery line, with pieces that are classic and minimalist, and that can be worn with anything. "I made jewellery as a hobby when I was young," she says.  The jewellery is then crafted by hand by the young artisans from sterling silver or gold fill, a durable construction that uses multiple layers of real gold over jeweller's brass. The result is much more resilient than gold plate. All the pieces are hypoallergenic, won't tarnish, and are designed to last for years

Travel By The Glass: Seven Cocktails From Around The World W e may not be able to travel, listen to live music or eat in restaurants, but we can always drink. Here's a look at some famous cocktails, and the stories surrounding their origins from all over the world. The Bloody Caesar (Calgary, Alberta Canada) The story goes that back in 1969, the Calgary Inn asked bartender Walter Chell to create a new cocktail to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant inside the hotel. Taking his inspiration from the restaurant's Italian cuisine, it took him fully three months to ocme up with the Caesar - as inspired by spaghetti alla vongole, which is essentially pasta with clam sauce.  Chell crushed clams for their juices, mixing it with tomato juice and spices. The classic version includes clam nectar - nowadays more often substituted by Clamato juice - Worcestershire sauce and celery salt. In an interview, Chell said he also added a dash of oregano.
