‘Tis the season

Looks like a shopping expedition for some evening wear is in order as my Outlook calendar seems to populate itself with awards shows and galas on an almost daily basis at this time of year.

Looks like a shopping expedition for some evening wear is in order as my Outlook calendar seems to populate itself with awards shows and galas on an almost daily basis at this time of year.

Kicking off the season is the hotly anticipated Agency of the Year/Media Agency of the Year and B!G Awards on November 1st . Hosting this year’s soiree are David Crichton and Graham Lee of Grip. Their goal – as lofty as it may be – is to match the performance of the Dentsu team of Glen Hunt and Chris Pastirik. Not sure if they’ll be brandishing Samurai swords or sporting blonde wigs or Rochewear, but I can guarantee some laughs. For tickets go to strategymag.com/aoy/2007 They’re going quickly and there’s little question they’ll sell out.

So you get the weekend to recover before heading to the Cassies at the Liberty Grand on Nov. 6th. The program’s been revamped to a swank evening affair, and tickets are available at cassies.ca. But don’t put away the party wear just yet. The CMA Gala is at the Westin Harbour Castle on Nov. 16th, and all the details are at the-cma.org. cm
