Latest Video: How Black Men in Toronto Really Feel About Relationships


Conversations & Cocktails is a social event series created by Nadine Mauricette to help bridge the communication gap between men and women of African and Caribbean heritage. We bring young professionals together in a chill and laid-back atmosphere where they can engage in an honest dialogue about relationships. NO FIRING SQUADS. NO BLAME. Just real talk that bridges the gap.

Presented by husband & wife duo Sean Mauricette, a.k.a. SUBLIMINAL and relationship writer, Nadine Mauricette of NavyJade. If you’ve read their exchanges on Facebook or viewed any of their YouTube videos, you’ve seen their chemistry and colourful banter first hand. This, along with the fact that Nadine is a writer specializing in relationships, makes it easy to see that they’re the perfect team to bring an event like this to Toronto.

Conversations & Cocktails is not to be missed and is a positive step towards bridging the communication gap between men and women and enriching and strengthening relationships within our community. This event is open to all – whether you’re single, married, divorced or simply just interested in some real talk.

And to end your evening on the right note, reignite your nostalgia of the good ol’ days. Stick around to mingle and engage in some friendly competition by playing some 80’s games! Yes, that’s right. We’re taking it waaay back with some of your favourite games: Connect Four, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Perfection & Operation to name a few! You won’t want to miss it!
