Royal Ontario Museum | Getting it On at FNLROM

Last updated on May 17th, 2021 at 10:12 pm

Going through my draft blog posts, I came across an unpublished piece from my former life!

If you haven’t been, you’re missing out—with the decline of Toronto’s Entertainment District and the condo set looking for safe places to get their party on, the Royal Ontario Museum’s Friday Night Live (or FNLROM) has become an amazing addition to Toronto’s nightlife!

On Fridays from May 2 through June 27, from 7-11:45 PM, you can dance, explore and wander through the Museum until close—galleries are even open ’til 11 PM!

So let’s take a trip back to Spring 2012, when the ROM first started FNLROM and I discovered that the museum offered more than just a bunch of old bones!

#100HappyDays Day 31 was a busy one, returning me downtown for some training, instantly feeling at home with its slushy sidewalks and people reminding me of the times I’d spend at the mall or wandering with friends, taking the energy of everything in. When I wasn’t dashing through the snow, I kept busy with many events—but which one made me happy?

#100HappyDays—Day 31— Pogue Mahone—Steak and Mushroom Pie

The first adventure had me wishing an old boss well, hanging with my old team at Pogue Mahone, a regular haunt for many working in Toronto’s Yonge/College area. I got my Steak and Mushroom Pie—my favourite item on their menu —and shared laughs with some of the best people I’ve worked with yet. It made me wistful for past days, and though I had a great lunch and great times, it also made me a little sad and contemplative about the future, so I don’t think this is the winner.
