Casino night, book sale, flea market in the Glebe this weekend

April 20, 2018 | by glebeadmin


You’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya?

If you do, you should probably head to the Horticulture Building tonight for the 7th Annual Wine, Cheese and Casino Night where you can win some fantastic prizes, including two round trip flights to anywhere in North America.

The night is in support of Valérie’s Flutter Foundation – an organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness for rare cancers that lack funding.

This year’s event carries an 80’s theme and attendees are encouraged to dress up in 80’s attire. 80’s tunes will be blasting all night while a wide selection of wine & hors d’oeuvres will be served to guests. Tickets are $50 and can be snagged here.

The 80’s casino night kicks off another wicked weekend of activity in the Glebe – everything from yoga and brunch to the Lansdowne flea market and Earth Day events.

Looking to get lost in a good book? Head to Murchmor School’s Book sale Friday through Sunday at 185 Fifth Avenue. Explore more than 27,000 good quality used books – every genre from adult fiction, travel, sci-fi, and young adult to children’s books, LPs, CDs and even cookbooks. The book sale is now in its 35th year. All the proceeds will go to fun school council projects. Click here to start flipping the pages.

After you’ve mastered your downward dog, head over the Aberdeen Pavilion for 613 Flea, where over 100 vendors are offering up eclectic goods, hand made treasure, vintage finds and one-of-a-kinds. The event is free and runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Click here to start your treasure hunt.
