Coming soon to Chinatown: a new board game café


Published:

Board games and lattes are a popular combination in Toronto. With Parkdale’s Go Lounge and the Annex’s Snakes & Lattes showing no signs of slowing down, a new competitor is adding itself into the mix. Castle Board Game Café is opening soon at Spadina and College in the former Saigon Palace space.

The approximately 3,400-square-feet venue will seat about 90 people and will offer games like Cards Against Humanity and Blokus.

“Games bring people together,” says owner Gwen von Harten.

Castle will also have a communal table that seats about 14 people and will feature a different board game every week (Castle Panic will be the first one featured when the café opens up).

Von Harten is aiming for a mid-May opening.

Castle Board Game Café 454 Spadina Ave., 647-748-1955

Comic Stripped: Try stoner comedy while you still can

And what might this have to do with Toronto comedy? Well, for one thing, they won’t be arrested if they spark up outside their favourite club. Comics generally like pot. It’s use is rampant and almost universal in the community. A lot of them feel there’s a link between its use and creativity. Well, at the very least, it does make you giggle.
