Since starting Oh So Dope in 2020 (previously Dope Haus), I've wanted to do an in-person thing. You know, meet all of my internet friends, because I truly feel like y'all are my girls irl. Come out, enjoy brunch, good company, good music, and a dope lil' pop up by yours truly. If you're game, please choose an arrival time that works for you and your friends. Can't wait to see your face :)
11am - 11:30am // Staggered Arrivals
you'll be greeted at the door, if you bring a book, it will be collected before you get seated
11am - 1:30pm // Brunch and Music
enjoy the delicious eats, take pics, and kiki
12:30pm - 2pm // Book Swap & Pop Up
once you've wrapped up your meal, make your way to the back to grab a book and check out some new Oh So Dope merch
Q: Do I have to bring a book?
A: Nope, absolutely not. The book swap isn't mandatory. Simply enjoy the brunch and pop up shop!
Q: I'm not certain that I can make it, can I reserve a spot and cancel closer to the date?
A: Things happen. Since we have limited tables, ideally we'd like people to confirm once they're certain they can attend
Q: Can I bring a friend?
A: Yes! Once you reserve your time, just use the notes box at checkout to let me know how many people are in your party
Q: Why are the entrance times staggered?
A: Staggered entrance times make for a better overall experience, people won't have to wait to be seated and serviced. Plus, your food will be ready and fresh in a timely manner
Q: Can we see the menu ahead of time?
A: For sure! We're finalizing the details, everyone who RSVPs will be emailed the brunch menu *licks lips*
Q: I want to add additional people to my reso, how should I do that?
A: To add more people, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Can I come alone?
A: Yes! We'll have a "singles table".. kinda like at a wedding, only better
Q: What should I wear?
A: Whatever you feel most comfortable in! Personally, I'll likely be in sneakers and activewear lol. The vibe of the venue is very casual
Q: What's the parking situation like?
A: There is a Green P parking lot right behind the restaurant (201 Claremont St, Toronto, ON M6J 2N1), each half hour is $1, daily rate is $5 (no maximum time limit). There is also street parking if you're lucky!
Q: How does the book swap work?
A: Once you arrive, we'll have a box where you can drop your book. During Brunch, we'll be setting up the book swap area, putting everything on display. If you bring 1 book, you can take 1 book, if you bring 2 books, take 2 books etc.
Q: Do I have to wear a mask?
A: It's totally up to you!
Q: If it rains, will the event be cancelled?
A: Nope, we're rolling rain or shine. Brunch is indoor!
Q: Is this a FREE event?
A: Yes, the only thing you're responsible for is your brunch bill, server tips and shopping if you choose
