Seen on the marquee over Zanzibar’s, a downtown Toronto strip club, this weekend: Welcome Alcoholics Anonymous. Hot Girls and Cold Soft Drinks—Come On Inside

Toronto is hosting the annual convention of AA this weekend, and 60,000 delegates are in the city, making it the biggest convention Toronto has ever hosted. Walking around downtown they are very easy to spot, with nametags and special transit passes hanging from distinctive blue lanyards that read “I am responsible” in at least three languages. Kind of defeats the “Anonymous” part, doesn’t it?
