Now enters the long, cold, drawn-out part of winter, the time when we dream about escaping to a warm beach or hibernating in front of the television at home. Instead of trying to avoid the season, why not laugh in its face this year with some friends, food and fine wine.
Winterlicious, presented by American Express Canada, celebrates its 10th year of bringing people out of their homes and into some of Toronto’s best restaurants. Running from Jan. 27 until Feb. 9, 2012, guests can enjoy delicious, three-course prix fixe menus at appetizing prices, like $15, $20, and $25 for lunch and $25, $35, and $45 for dinner. Diners can choose from 175 of Toronto’s top restaurants.
With prices like that, there’s no excuse for not getting some of your friends together and heading out for a night of fun. That’s what I’ll be doing on Feb. 3, 2012 at Estiatorio Volos. Along with dining on what promises to be a delicious Greek-inspired dinner, I’ll be hanging out with some local ladies who have been an amazing source of support to me and EverythingMom. Enjoying dinner and drinks with friends seems like a perfect way to kick-off our year by focusing more on our heart and soul, as well as embracing the moment.
Why not join us? For just $35 (plus taxes and gratuity) you can enjoy a choice of starter, entrée and dessert (see the menu here), along with some fabulous company including myself, Tamara (@WonderMoms_ca), Christy (@IMFreckles), Caroliine (@ParentClub), Sara (@InfoSara) and Maria (@BOREDMommy). The more the merrier. To join our party, call Volos at 416-861-1211 or book online.
Even if you can’t make it out to dinner, you can join us virtually as we tweet from our table on the evening of Feb. 3, 2012; just follow along with the hashtag #DineWithAmex.
