Well Well…How time flies!
I’ve been busy, Tastefuls, very busy, but I am here to tell you two things
Firstly, though I’ve been continuing with various private events and projects, but I’ve been spending most of my time since last years’ California Wine Tour with the Drake One Fifty bar – the new brainchild of The Drake Hotels’ Jeff Stober – in assisting to bring edgy art, fabulous food and captivating cocktails from Queen West to the Bay Street crowd.
I have to say that the team here is amazing and I find myself eager to work with such a group of professionals, a working relationship that seemed for me a no-brainer to merge my largest event of the year to this location, to further bring my Queen West love of all things local to the Bay Street crowd.
Which brings us to the second thing to announce; that it’s that time of year again, to bring together some of the most exciting local wines, cheeses and producers in Ontario for an afternoon of exploring and tasting for the 7th Annual Ontario Wine Fair!
It is game-on, my friends, and as the venue is larger than our usual Parkdale venues, we’re doing 26 wineries for you to spend the day enjoying here near the Bay Street hoopala – Certainly public transportation this year will be a breeze for most!
The details in full are as follows:
