Toronto came alive on Wednesday night, with events popping up in every neighbourhood. Preppy-chic retailer J. Crew hosted a cocktail with the National Ballet and Artbound, a non-profit organization that raises money for Free the Children, held their annual shindig in the east end. On the west side, society types stopped in at Spoke Club for a look at Candid, a photo show by party photographers Ryan Emberley and Tara Noelle. The exhibition featured snaps of social set regulars from columnist Shinan Govani and eTalk’s Tanya Kim to Suzanne Rogers and fashion designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong of Greta Constantine. The Canadian television crew – Natalie Brown, Erin Karpluk and Chad Connell – showed their support as well as local songstress Sarah Slean. It’s official: the party circuit has sprung. parties@globeandmail.com
