What TL Insiders can look forward to in August

What Insiders are saying

July was another fantastic month for TL Insiders. Members enjoyed one-of-a-kind dinners, including a night with Tamarack Farms at the iconic Canoe and a pig roast at Stackt. They also took in a wine-fuelled patio party, a whole whack of cooking lessons and a private party at the Toronto Botanical Garden. And August is looking just as exciting, if not more so. Here’s just a sample of some upcoming events and offers.

YYZ meets YUL

Maison Selby’s chef John Horne is teaming up with chef Kevin Ramasawmy of Montreal’s Bar George on August 20 to bring Insiders a cross-section of bites, highlighting a mix of Québécois flavour, U.K. whimsy and Parisian style. Also: delicious cocktails made using spirits from Dillon’s Distillery.

Another wine-fuelled patio party

On August 20, Drink Toronto invites Insiders to come sip wines from around the world (and beer and cider and cocktails) alongside plenty of tasty snacks—not to mention sweet views—at the top of 150 King West. This is the last patio party of the season, so don’t miss out!
