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)
Thanks 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.
Being such a turkey lover, I was thrilled to see such a huge roast bird, sparkling under the display lights, and the cheery carver behind the table, Anthony, was kind enough to serve up not only the samples to all the guests but he and the chef kindly sent me home with a doggy bag of my favourite turkey bits…wings! Of course, the wing left-overs barely lasted an hour once I got home….see?
Lots of great schmoozing with other TT members including the fabulous ladies from Beerlicious, Chef Scott Savoie of Culinary Adventures and Jennifer from the Queen West Art Crawl. My colleagues from Urban Source Catering and Urban Gallery had a blast tasting everything and enjoying the great hospitality…they were such busy social butterflies but we did manage a questionable selfie (below) featuring the three of us – Kaspara, Wayne and moi!
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 http://www.millstreetbrewpub.ca
