Liberty Social Hour: Le Bel Été – Are You In?

Picture 9

Perhaps the atmosphere of last Thursday’s Liberty Social Hour is best captured by the name of our host venue: Merci Mon Ami – it was truly a gathering of friends. For some, it was the greeting of old friends but for most, it was being finally able to exchange names and numbers with the faces they’ve seen and the businesses they’ve come across in the neighbourhood.

Picture 8

Trinity-Spadina PC Candidate Mike Yen was there. Folks from Danceology, Kingwest Fitness, and other studios came by. Artists, techies, designers and chefs made appearances. Residents came out. Commuters dropped in. From veteran Villagers to aspiring hopefuls… the collection of guests were as varied and interesting as the Liberty Village mosaic itself.

And as usual, food was delicious and drinks were refreshingly apt for a summer’s evening.

I can’t wait for the next Liberty Social Hour at Locus 144. With live singer Lucia, drink specials and menu promotions all happening in conjunction with Live It Up.  Liberty Social Hour: Le Bel Été.
