STEVE GOODTIME
A hilarious rock n’ roll circus show performed by the super handsome and witty Steve Goodtime. With routines including mouthstick, fire breathing, and juggling, he tops it all off with the greatest rock show your odd hippy uncle has ever seen! He’s also great at air guitar, high fives, and kick jumps. Steve isn’t the only one that gets to have all the fun, there is plenty of volunteer participation in the show. If you don’t make it on stage, don’t worry, you’ll still feel like you’re in the greatest party of your life!
MICHAEL JAMES​
Michael James takes his 30+ years of magic experience and mixes it up with his unique sense of humor to present a comical magic show like no other! Witness a miracle with a piece of fruit, an ancient Chinese mystery and more than a few surprises along the way. Jam-packed with audience participation and enough laughs to make you choke on your vegan hotdog, this is the show you will be talking about this for weeks to come!
RHYTHM WORKS​
Rhythm Works Is a high energy Team of two drummers, dancers, beatboxers, and noise makers on everything they can find. Troy is the former lead of broadway show STOMP, and Alonzo is a comedian dj and drummer from Toronto, they both perform at Toronto Raptors games as the official drummers for the team. get ready to laugh and dance and get involved and be amazed by amazing beats moves flips and stick tricks.
SILVER ELVIS
​In a world of 58,000 Elvis impersonators there is only one Elvis simulator, The simulation of the inspiration Silver Elvis. This is the “most unique spin on Elvis you will see.” Cash activated, robo-electro Elvis is silver from his caddy chrome coif to his silver shoes , as he gyrates robotically to the platinum hits of Elvis!  Grandmothers swoon , teenagers freak , parents are amazed as toddlers clamour to dance with the king of bling, SilverE.

As part of the #ReduceSingleUseOctober campaign, each day in October we will be featuring a business who is doing their part to reduce their use this October!

At NovelTea Bookstore Cafe we are launching our new 'Travel Mug Library!' We are asking our customers to bring us a few of the many travel mugs that so many of us have stored in our cupboards. Our NovelTea team will then inspect, wash & sanitize them, and then the various travel mugs will be available for our customers to borrow as needed, and hopefully return - so that each mug can be used again and again!

This new initiative is in addition to:
- Dine-in option with washable cups, plates and cutlery.
- 5% discount for bringing your own reusable travel mug with you.
- encouraging customers to bring their own reusable take-out containers.
- Offering compostable cutlery, take-out containers and trays.
- Offering a great selection of reusable straws, and cups for purchase.

Thanks NovelTea Bookstore Cafe for reducing single use!!

Do YOUR part this month and take the pledge to #reducesingleuse. To take the pledge, go to bit.ly/2lrDUeH . All entries will be entered to win one of two great prize packages which include reusable YETI cups, straws, bags, bottles, and more!

As part of the #ReduceSingleUseOctober campaign, each day in October we will be featuring a business who is doing their part to reduce their use this October!

At Divert NS we already have a disposable coffee-cup ban, but for October we have also implemented a fast-food wrapper ban as well as a ban on "grab-and-go" containers (like grocery store salads). Along with this we have a $0.25 fee for failure to comply which goes to our social fund.

Thanks Divert NS for reducing single use!!
