For me, the end of the week is usually a blend of exhaustion and euphoria; I've cleared a lot off my plate and am about to reach into the infinite potential of two days that I haven't made a schedule for.

A Canadian podcast crew with the catchy initialism of GRTTWaK or, as I pronounce it, “Grittwhack” are one of the best sources of humour on the event scene, and my Spotify playlists.
Described by their enigmatic host as "weird, wonderful, and [ready to] remind us of where we came from," their live events are as described: they're places where grown-ups read things they wrote as kids.
Err on the side of caution, though. GRTTWaK usually sells out minutes after their live events go, well, live. Though you can always join a Waiting List (by the power of Tito *cough*) on the event site.
Dates: Ongoing, but the next installment will take place in Toronto on October 12th.

Storytellers gather at Story Party to share their tales of love and loss. But only the hilarious ones. A self-proclaimed Tinder-alternative, they even (pretended that they) had Louis C.K. at one event.
Singletons are welcome to meet each other at the bar before hearing other people recall times they've been dumped, ghosted, or otherwise screwed over by love.
Early booking advised.
