Welcome! Come on in, grab a cocktail….Christopher Barry, Manager of Tourism Toronto’s Special Projects & Business Development, welcomed TT members last night to the fabulous Beer Hall party space at the Mill St. Brew Pub in the historic Distillery District in downtown Toronto.  And what a fun bunch of members they were, too. I shared a table with Tina Doull, Director of Mkt’g for Centreville Amusement Park/Wm. Beasley Enterprises Ltd and Jamie Leitch, Director of Sales and Mkt’g for the Irish Embassy Hospitality Group (below)

20141021_163620 20141021_163613Thanks to Mill St’s chef (below) for supervising the delicious food stations throughout the Beer Hall and keeping the nibblies coming all evening…burp! I’m definitely heading back there for a proper sit-down dinner soon.

Of course, the wing left-overs barely lasted an hour once I got home….see?

Big thanks to Christopher, Denise and all the great Tourism Toronto hosts, and the folks at Mill St. Brew Pub – great staff who were so very patient with all us rowdies! I highly recommend you visit
