The fan-favourite returns!

Summer is finally here and so is Comic Shop Ladies Night! Join us at The Beguiling for a special ladies night event in July with comics, coloring, door prizes, snacks, drinks, lotsa ladies and even more fun!

Comic Shop Ladies Night is back in full sun for Summer! This is a ladies only event* where you can embrace your geeky side, share your opinions on movies, TV shows and video games, and discover new comics, as well as new friends! So come spend the evening with other nerdy ladies in a casual environment, surrounded by three of the greatest things ever, comics, merch and food.

This Ladies Night will be held at the new Beguiling location on College St in downtown Toronto. The store has tons of comics, toys and merch and will be open for business all night with special sales just for Ladies Night attendees. We’ll also have amazing door prizes being raffled off all night!

As always, we’ll have a nerdy photo booth and our popular colouring table, so bring your pencils and imagination. Check out pics from past events and share your own using #CSLNTO!

Snacks and beverages will be provided. We’re also pleased to welcome back Muskoka Breweries as our wonderful drink sponsor! (If you’d like to bring snacks to share too that’d be just swell, just make sure we know what’s in them.)

So come on out and enjoy the nice weather chatting and snacking with other great geeky gals. First timers and serial attendees are all welcome, but don’t forget to RSVP get your name entered for the door prizes!

*This event is intended for all women and is emphatically queer and trans friendly! 

** While this location is accessible, we regret that there are not accessible washrooms.
