Although there’s no official opening date for Pick 6ix, the new Drake-affiliated restaurant at Yonge and Wellington, it had a hell of a soft launch last week when Drake and friends hosted two nights’ worth of celebrity-filled parties in the space. Here’s what went on.

The first party, on January 9, was billed as a birthday celebration for Cleveland Cavaliers player Dwyane Wade, to be hosted by LeBron James. Drake was there with his friend and security minder, Nessel “Chubbs” Beezer. Both of them were clearly dressed for comfort:

The following night, Pick 6ix hosted a “friends and family” gathering for Drake and company. Here’s the big man pressing the flesh with P.K. Subban:

Party queen Mona Halem was there, too. She was the subject of a Toronto Life profile in 2014:
