If you have nothing to do on May 9th. (Yes I know it’s a Thursday night! :P)
Why not check out this event called J’Adart!
Here is a blurb about the event:
J’Adart is Ottawa School of Art‘s fundraising for 2013.
Guided by their motto “Teaching art to everyone”, OSA has been Ottawa’s leading centre for visual arts education in the region since 1879.
In honour of this amazing night, they would very much appreciate your attendance to a memorable evening like J’adart.

Herd Magazine held their issue #3 launch at Mercury Lounge.
It was a takeover on all three levels at the venue.
In case you have forgotten, Herd Magazine is Ottawa’s free magazine.
Definitely was a huge success.

A compelling collection of photographic work by SPAO Portfolio students. This year’s exhibition pays tribute to classic photographic processes and explores nature and the environment, identity and self-discovery, and contemporary social issues, among other themes.
