I had the pleasure of going to Mr. Greek, one of the main sponsors of this year's Taste of the Danforth, for the launch party, courtesy of firstname.lastname@example.org.
As with most such launches, there were speeches from those involved with the Taste, such as the Chair (John Maniatakos), Krinos, George Raios the President of Mr. Greek, and from Turtle Island.
Food was delicious: typical Greek fare with skewers of well-spiced chicken and pork. Wines were basic red and white bar pours, but some sambuco and ouzo came out later, as did coffee. It was on their patio, and the weather was gorgeous for a change. Some of us stayed well past the 7:30 closing time of the party -- I didn't get home until 9:30. And, of course, the Taste of the Danforth, now in its 15th annual version, was a spectacular success. Kudos all round...
