Where to Eat Naked in Toronto

Last year, members and visitors found Liz to be their favorite operator of the Bare Bistro to date. But it sees to be true for the media too!  First it was the restaurant review by Ian Brown in the Globe and Mail. Today, there is an article in blogTO.

In their own words, "blogTO is a web site about Toronto written by a group of obsessed artists, musicians, photographers, politicos, advertising and media types, dancers, tech geeks, food lovers, aspiring film directors, fashionistas and people for the ethical treatment of animals." The website is popular with urban youth in Toronto and has 500,000 unique users and 2,100,000 page views per month.

It's funny that our restaurant is such a fascination to the textile world!

Over 100,000 podcast downloads!

The Naturist Living Show has exceeded 100, 000 downloads (not hits or impressions) of the show! And that number to continues to grow every day and the rate of growth is also increasing. Here are a few facts about the podcast:

  • It is audio-only so only true naturists or those genuinely interested in naturism listen (we don't get downloads of the show from people just looking for nudity because there are no pictures)
  • Each download is many megabytes in size and the show is nearly an hour long so the involvement level is very high. (it's not just a 'hit' or 'impression')
  • Unlike a radio or TV show, the podcasts are available forever. Even the oldest episode is still growing in listenership as new people discover the show and catch up on the older episodes. 
  • While there are no specific demographics available, the audience is obviously technologically savvy which suggests that they are well-educated and younger.
  • There are listeners from around the world. (18% Canada, 39% USA, 26% Europe, & 17% other)
