Tonight's the night for one of the biggest Geek Nights of all. Our partners in geek hipness, Lost Marbles, presents it's third annual Kid Robot / Munny designer vinyl art toy event (this year titled in the movie tie-in themed name: The Colour of Munny). Mayfair doors open at 8PM for the gallery portion of the event, where you'll be able to check out the toy embellishing and adapting talents of dozens of local artists. And, as if that's not reason enough to attend, there will be a live art showcase and a ton of prizes.
Following that, at 9:30 will be the Canadian premiere of the much buzzed about documentary, The Vinyl Frontier (fresh off of it's screening at Comic Con). A history of the vinyl toy trend featuring all the artistic luminaries who helped make it an underground cult phenomenon.
Anyone who says there's nothing to do in Ottawa isn't coming to the Mayfair.
