April Tonic - 30 Under 30 Launch! The Drive Coffee Bar On April 11th

"Look at you kids with your vintage music
Comin' through satellites while cruisin'
You're part of the past, but now you're the future
Signals crossing can get confusing" -- "Love" by Lana Del Rey

Tonic is pleased to present the launch of 30 UNDER 30: An Anthology of Canadian Millennial Poets from In/Words Magazine and Press

To celebrate we're having readings that cater to short attention spans from our local team of millennial poets: Adèle BarclayDominique Bernier-CormierSelina BoanKayla CzagaCurtis LeBlanc, & Mallory Tater.

Hosted by our fave Generation X-er Chris Evans.

Anthologies will be availble for purchase. So get ready and get all dressed up to go back to work or the coffee shop and toast to this new wave of poetry

It'll be fun. 100%. 

Admission is, of course, FREE.

This event takes place on unceded Musqueam, Sḵwxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh land.

Accessibility info: The Drive Coffee Bar entrance is wheelchair accessible and there are wheelchair accessible bathrooms. The space, however, is narrow and difficult to navigate when busy. We'll reserve seating and space at the front for anyone who needs this. Feel free to contact us ahead of time so we can make sure to save these spots for you so that you can be comfortable for the event. Please contact us at or via the event page to make requests and/or ask any questions! 

And a reminder that going scent-free is a simple way to make the space accessible and safe. For more guidance on the matter, how to go scent-free and why it's important, please read:
