What a brilliant and delicious night it was! I haven’t been to the Toronto Board of Trade for years and last night, local event and party planners were treated to a colourful and tasty showcase of their new function rooms and facilities located in the First Canadian Place in Toronto’s financial district. Oliver & Bonacini catered the event, along with a few other local foodies who brought along some extra special treats.
Joining me was uber fabulous photo journalism student Gabriella Luchetta, who took a lot of these photos and she had a ton o’ fun schmoozing with the guests and the great O&B staff who plied us with the most scrumptious food and drinks.
Upon arriving, we were treated to a pretty in pink glass of champers poured over candyfloss….we kept going back for more!!
Then Gabriella and I enjoyed the entertainment from the boys of Train Reaction downstairs along with yummy handcrafted ice cream courtesy of Cremahh (www.cremahh.com) Thanks to owner Sabina Morell for piling up generous servings for us.
Back upstairs, we scoffed down some amazing mini donuts courtesy of Glory Hole Doughnuts (www.gloryholedoughnuts.com)
We all enjoyed the musical entertainment presented by www.TheyLounge.com and the sultry sexy song stylings of Deena who was pretty awesome and those shoes…damn!
Gabriella and I worked the room like crazy, networking with Bay Street types, party planners and even a few film folks, too.
Ran into the fabulous Roni Feldman who manages/produces corp. events and meetings at one of the food stations and had a laff with her about the crazy “dragon breath” popcorn that Gabriella really got into….
…..and then …taa-daaah. Who did I run into but the fabulous Julio Reyes of @fashionights fame and his gorgeous fiancé Daniel. No sooner had they showed us their rings when Justin Edmead of @TDotTV and his lovely lady friend crashed our circle of friends. Such lovely people to run into.
Big thanks for the warm hospitality – the evening was a great success for the Board of Trade and O&B, and thanks especially to the men with the meat who kept me happy all night long…yum yum yum.
