Tennis Star Suzie’s annual comfort food holiday party was last night and so we decided to combine a stay at Le Meridien King Edward Hotel (our home-away-from-home when we travel the 15 minutes by subway downtown) with the party. Life at the King Eddy is heavenly and it has the best club lounge of any hotel in the city, complete with free drinks and hors d’oevures and breakfast.
After stopping by Blee’s for pre-party cocktails we headed over to Tennis Star Suzie’s new digs at Harbourfront and dug into every manner of comfort food imaginable. Is it not interesting that many comfort foods tend to be beige? Cheese, mac and cheese, lasagne, grilled cheese sandwiches … very odd.
9) neon-orange bears by the Haida artist Dean Drever at the Toronto Sculpture Garden on King Street; 10) the very funky duck made completely of kitchen stuff outside Victoria Restaurant at the King Eddy
11) one of these would look great in our condo!
Five days till Christmas now ….
