Doug and I entertained friends during a recent weekend stay at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto. We'd eaten at the hotel's Consort Bar/Lounge before and enjoyed the food; the real plus, though, is being able to converse while dining. Carpeting, drapes and upholstered/leather furniture help reduce distracting background noise.

Owners of Girasol Collectables: (top left) Leigh Mechem and (top right) Neil Mechem visit us in Orillia throughout the year as well as when we exhibit in Artist Alley at Fan Expo Canada.
Chris Houston - Marketing Director at Tourmaline Editions Inc/exclusive representatives of DK - exhibits at Fan Expo Canada; we enjoy talking with him and buying DK books during the 4-day convention. It was great fun meeting his wife Rebecca at lunch.
Since I had my camera with me, I decided to photograph a few of our meals at the Consort Bar/Lounge:
beer battered halibut cheeks
ginger shrimp saute
fettuccine with seared shrimp
Doug's oldest daughter Julie and her husband Doug stopped by for an afternoon visit.
