Mayor's Clean-up Day - Saturday, April 21
Following our success in 2006, we're back again to clean up the lanes, parking spots, back yards and hidden nooks and crannies. You can drop your unwanted litter at three locations along Parliament Street: Amelia & Parliament, Carlton & Parliament and Spruce & Parliament. Free pickup is handled by the City of Toronto
Exact times will be posted soon.

Cabbagetown Film Festival
Fundraising Retrospective Screening
Stone Grill, 51 B Winchester Street
Sunday, April 29, 2 to 5 pm
This great annual event is launching off on its own this year. After fifteen years as a partner with the BIA, the Festival is now an independent, registered non-profit group.
And like all new creatures, they need money. So they've organized a fundraising afternoon that can't be missed... a screening with a silent auction. Ten dollars gets you in the door for an afternoon packed films, asilent auction and lots of other Cabbagetown people. Plus great food and drinks in the beautiful Stone Grill.

Three New Businesses
Have you tried our new restaurants?

Piccolo is a beautifully renovated room in a familiar location at 226 Carlton offering a great Italian menu and a well-selected wine list.

Stone Grill at 51B Winchester Street is a stunning new room in the amazing Winchester building. Their menu and wines are already creating a buzz in Cabbagetown.

Saigon Hot Pot on Parliament south of Wellesley is a welcome new addition offering good Asian food at very reasonable prices.

Barbeques for every need!
Home Hardware can provide everything for your summer barbeque menus. Whether you're doing up a huge steak or a tiny shrimp, they've got a Broil King that's just right for the job.

So, what's new with JavaVille?
Don't know yet - but when we do, it'll be here.
