Pardon all the Twitter handles (though, actually, we’ll all be referring to ourselves that way anyway in the not-so-distant future, probably) but last night the fine folks from @TallboysBar put on another edition of their outstanding @PitchTalks series at the Centre For Social Innovation – Annex, featuring great talks from MLB stat pioneer @RGriffinStar, along with @TSNScottyMac, @CathalKelly, @BKennedyStar, @BaseballAlexis, the premier of the latest video (which you can see below) from @CashewMirman, great food from @LOFTKitchen, and awesome beers from @LFBrewery.
I think that covers it. Though the pic of Griff and I, which can be found on the DJF Instagram, is probably worth checking out, too. I assure you, 2008 Stoeten would have never believed it.
And, obviously, as you can see above — or as you probably guessed when you saw that I was writing a post about it — I’m pleased to let you know I’ll be taking part in the action the next time, at PITCH #4 – and it’s happening soon. The event will take place Thursday, June 19th, and is moving a bit up the street to an even bigger venue, 918 Bathurst: Culture, Media, and Education Centre. Along with me it will feature @JonahKeri, @MichaelGrange, and @MorganPCampbell.
The event starts at 7 PM, costs $15, and you can grab yourself some tickets here.
Since we’re all here, I should point out that a week prior to PITCH #4, we’re also doing another DJF event at Opera Bob’s — and not for one of the games with an odd start time, either. We’ll be taking over the bar on Thursday, June 12th for the Jays’ 7 PM game against Baltimore from Camden Yards. I’m sure I’ll mention it a time or three between now and then.
Oh, and since I mentioned everyone else’s Twitter handle, I might as well encourage you to follow mine, as well. I’m way more on top of news-worthy stuff than the DJF Twitter, which mostly serves to notify folks when posts go up here (all of which I tweet out, as well), plus there’s a good chance at some point I’ll yell at you. Win-win? Anyway, follow me at @AndrewStoeten.
And finally, as promised above, here’s the brand new Cashew Mirman video, which he premiered at last night’s event. Check out his YouTube channel for more gold (or just keep watching the clips that follow this one in the playlist, apparently). Now, Space Jays 3…
