Once again Nuit Blanche Toronto 2013 transformed my city into a huge, interactive, indoor/outdoor art gallery. Just because you can’t see it all in one night doesn’t mean I wasn’t gonna try. This year I made the trek entirely on foot, covering about 20k of Toronto’s core and taking in around 40 of the exhibits . Although the event goes from sunset to sunrise I only made it until about 3:30 a.m. when the rain started and I realized the number of inebriated 20-somethings pouring out of clubs into the night was growing exponentially with every passing minute. That was my cue to call it a night. Taxi!
