8 to 11 p.m.
Bi & Beyond LGBTQ+ Lock & Key Mixer at The Mouse Trap (Good Robot), 2736 Robie St
Meet Gay/ Lesbian/ Bi/ Trans/ Genderqueer/ Non-Binary/ Poly 'singles' from across Nova Scotia {No cis men, please.}
Do you know what a Lock & Key Mixer is? In a nut shell, half of the room gets keys and the other half of the room gets locks. Meet as many people as you can and see if the lock and key are a match. If the lock opens the lucky couple will come to us and be entered into a draw for the potential to win the door prize. You then get either a lock or key (the opposite of what you had last time) and away you go again.
This mixer is intended for everyone looking to make new romantic connections. Unlike a speed dating event, matches will not be provided the next day. If you would like to see someone again, it is up to you to exchange contact information.
25+ event.
Tickets are $28.75.


9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Bear Ball: Midnight Edition at Atlantica Hotel (1980 Robie)
Bear Ball is an event where bears, cubs, otters, furries and pups can dance, nudge and mingle with friends and admirers.
It’s midnight in the city. You arrive at the leather bar to find an inviting stairwell leading downward into darkness. A burly guy in a harness trades glances with you as the DJ leans into a fresh take on a bygone era. A furry, cigar daddy watches from the corner as an eager pup awaits your arrival on the dance floor, the beat gyrating his jock and boots. A bearded cub brushes past and flashes a seductive smile. The bartender beckons you over and pours your favorite libation. This is the night when possibilities are endless. This is Bear Ball: Midnight Edition.
Tickets: $20 Pre/$25 Door. Tickets availabe on Eventbrite. You can RSVP on Facebook.
Accommodations: Special room rates available at $179/night (current standard rate is $229)
