Mother in law visiting - any suggestions

dawson | | Mar 5, 2007 07:23 PM

My 81 year old british mother in law is visiting mid March. Any interesting ideas would be appreciated. It is a fairly scripted visit, but here is what we were considering. Our base is Queen street west (Triinity Bellwood Park area). We will be cabbing due to mobility issues, she does like to be "spoiled", i.e. she would prefer high tea to a pub, and she prefers seafood- specifically fish. We will be eating early, of course, so I doubt reservations will be a problem. Cost - not an issue.

She arrives on Thursday pm. Thinking of Canoe if she is up to it. My husband works right there, views, fancy from her perpective. Any other suggestions, or anything in our area in the event she is tired.

Friday: possibly CasaLoma in the afternoon - is there a place to get soup, quick sandwich? We are going to the Raptor game and considering eating at the TD Platinum Club. I know, expensive vs quality, but again we are navigating an octurian here. Maybe the Royal York?

Saturday - Afternoon Ballet at the four seasons centre, any lunch suggestions? Again, lunch we probably need something light - but a bar for me :). Dinner more challenging. We must invite family members in Toronto, well established financial background - very old boy's network type. They live in the donvale valley area, we really don't want to go up there. We made reservations at Bymark for the group. Any other suggestions?

Sunday: It is her last day, would like to make it special. Always difficult for dinner. Thinking CN tower. Her day I am not too sure about, maybe the ainsley gallery (sp?) distillery district?

Thank you for any suggestions.
