Another super fun and happy night! Life is so very good.
Thank you City Palate for making this fantastic vision come true! Dinner outdoors in a summer night with live music by The Polyjesters, laughter at the table, attentive service, spontaneous waves of raising glass up and down the really really long table. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Food tastes so much better when shared with others. Imagine how good it was sharing with 238 others all together!
Dinner was $150 a head and $25 per person for wine pairing. Proceeds went to Red Cross Flood Relief, most definitely a night worthwhile. It’s unreal to think downtown Calgary was under water on June 20th, 2013. With less than 90 days after the major flood, we recovered to be strong enough to party in the middle of 8th avenue, heart of downtown. It’s a blessing.
5 courses were served and 7 of our personal frequent choice of restaurants on 8th avenue participated, Blink, Catch & The Oyster Bar, Charcut, Divino, Teatro, The Belvedere, and Trib Steakhouse. Wines were chosen by The Cellar for those choose to pair with their meals. Our Mayer Nenshi only had time to stop by for a fun filled speech while drooling over what’s in everyone’s dinner plate. He had to get back to his Mayer duties.
I hope City Palate plans to throw this amazing party again soon. Maybe add an alcohol free mocktail for those non-drinkers, wink wink!
