over on the Toronto board we've been getting together periodically for dinners. #1 was a visit to Ethiopian Village, as suggested by the Alpha Dog himself. #2 was to a spectacular mexican resto, #3 was yesterday for dim sum.
i thought that for our next outing, we could make a group pilgrimage to the Gourmet Food & Wine Show, happening from Nov 20 - 23 right here in TO.
i've emailed someone involved with the show, and she's willing to go to bat for us to get us a discounted group rate on admission (it's $15, normally). i doubt this would include the VIP dinner and gathering ($55), but it would work for us for the weekend.
so i'm going to need to know how many people are planning on attending the show, so i can arrange a group rate. please email me at the above address, with 'chowhound' somewhere in the subject line.
if you will be travelling from out of town, and require either transportation or hotel packages, please note that in your email, as i think she has some sway with those things as well.
