It’s November. That grim month between beautiful sunny October and snowy holiday filled December. It’s cold, it gets dark early, the trees are barren and your Hallowe’en stash is getting stale. To help get us through this dreariest of months, we need something to look forward to. And what better than gourmet food and wine??? Not much if you ask us.
November 14-17th is the 19th annual Gourmet Food & Wine Expo at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and we want you to join us as VIPs!
With over 1,500 beers, wines and spirits to sample, it’s a good thing the Expo is also home to some incredible international cuisine. Sample tickets must be purchased, but the Expo also features several free events, including cooking demonstrations by celebrity and local chefs and artisanal cheese tasting seminars. In my experience, pours tend to get increasingly generous as the evening goes on and if you make friends with the right people, those sample tickets can go a long way :)
We’ve been attending this delicious event for several years, but vowed, after arriving on a Friday evening last year to discover a three hour line up, that this year we’d find a better way. And thanks to Product Magazine we have.
At the magazine’s website launch party on October 17th, we were given a pair of VIP tickets to attend the Expo preview evening on Thursday, November 14th and, thanks to the lovely people at Product, we’ve got 2 pairs of tickets to give away to our awesome readers ($80 value)! Join us Thursday evening from 6-10pm for an exclusive sneak preview of the Expo before the commoners take over on the weekend.
