Mayoral candidates host dinner discussions at Bistro 990 (sadly, not at the same time)
Over the next two months, the city’s mayoral hopefuls will each host a dinner and discussion at Bay and Wellesley’s swank Bistro 990. George Smitherman kicked off the series, Discussions at the Bistro, on February 22, and last night was Rocco Rossi’s turn (though, thanks to Facebook, we know at least 2,000 people who didn’t bother attending). Non-mayoral candidate John Tory will host the next discussion on March 16 (we’ve got $10 that says he was called in to pinch hit for Adam Giambrone), followed by the most recently declared candidate, Giorgio Mammoliti. In early April, Women’s Post publisher Sarah Thomson will remind everyone about her bootstraps, then Ossington and Harbord’s favourite councillor, Joe Pantalone, will round out the series on April 13. Tickets cost $125 each or $1,000 for a table; a portion of the sales will go to Doctors Without Borders.
