One of the coolest magazines to come out of Canada in the last decade, Spacing—-the Toronto urban spaces journal—-will now have an Atlantic presence, thanks to a new blog, spacingatlantic.ca. The official launch for the website is Wednesday, October 28, from 7-11pm, at Eye Level Gallery.

Besides promising the same fresh, critical take on political, cultural and social urban affairs that Hogtowners have enjoyed, Spacing is responsible for that awesome series of one-inch buttons featuring the tile art and landmarks of every Toronto subway station. Expect to see a series of “cool Halifax-themed buttons” at the launch. I’m hoping they’re making WINO (Windsor and North) buttons for my ’hood.

Any other suggestions for Halifax neighbourhood names?
