On Friday, Aug 12, CityEvents hosted the last Schmooze of summer 2016. It’s true what they say, you always save the best for last! The blue and white lantern garden theme set a nice mood, transforming the patio yet again for a magical getaway from city life.

Although the forecast called for rain all week leading up to the event, Schmooze was a fighting-force and cleared the skies just in time for 5 p.m. when the doors opened! Guests enjoyed the heat, celebrating on the rooftop patio while sipping on cocktails crafted by drink sponsor Grey Goose. The cocktails were made of Grey Goose Vodka, with a splash of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, topped off with club soda, and served with a lime. It was a hit, and the perfect way to keep cool on the heat.

To say the food was good would be an understatement. Guests swarmed the food station eagerly awaiting the feast served by Treeline Catering. The tacos which consisted of a corn coleslaw, seasoned ground pork, and crispy onion, topped with a chipotle mayo. And as if those weren’t enough, there was also barbecued corn on the cob seasoned with butter and spices.

The patio was filled with happy Schmoozers enjoying the last few weeks of summer. DJ Spence Diamonds had the music blasting throughout the night which kept everyone happy and dancing.

Schmooze just keeps getting better and better! This past Friday’s event was a huge success with over 200 people in attendance. The rooftop was transformed into a colourful, lantern decorated garden, complete with flowers and balloons giving the patio the perfect summer feel.

The sun was shining bright and warm, making the snow-cone machine a massive hit. Guests were also treated to complimentary barbecue courtesy of Treeline Catering, which included sliders and skewers. A new addition to this Schmooze event was the classic party game of beer pong, set up to the right of the bar. The game was played by many guests, and even created a spectator gathering.
