A tip for everyone out there. While they make great sandals, Birkenstocks are NOT appropriate footwear for dancing.

I went out on Saturday night expecting to wander from restaurant to bar to dessert bar or coffee bar or something similar. Instead we wound up at the Funhaus/Zen Lounge (in Toronto) where VNV Nation was on site to show a 35 minute preview edit of their forthcoming Pastperfect DVD and spin some tunes. I didn’t even know this was happening (I really should visit Dark Toronto more often) but am I ever glad we went. The music was amazing and the crowd was just as great. We danced for a few hours … me in sandals. By the time I left I was amazed my feet weren’t bleeding. Still, it was worth it. I haven’t had such a great night in months.
