Amelia, Peter and I headed up north for a long weekend in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) - mainly the trip was for one of my recruitment trips. And since the fair does not start till Sunday, we had Friday and Saturday all to ourselves. Joining us painting the town red and continuing in our usual gastronomical affairs were Bethany, Binh and Jessica.
Peter was delightfully please with the beer selection and Biermarkt downtown Toronto - you can see him smiling throughout our lunch session there. We also had our first steamboat/hotpot session of the year at Binthany's house - we got really fresh seafood to keep us stuffed all night. We continued the next day with dim sum and a sushi/sashimi buffet at Sushi on 7 by Highway 7 in Markam.

Of the mini shopping session we did, we managed to squeeze in a mahjong session shortly after we checked into our hotel on Saturday. We also feasted on the juiciest mangoes from south east Asia and found one of the best Cantonese cuisine in the Richmond Hill/Markham area called Dragon Boat Fusion Cuisine. All the girls.... Bethany, Amelia and I managed to also get sick - Jess caught very little of it. So when it came time to work at the fair - I was all sinus-y and headache-y. Ouch!
