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.
Although this was CityEvents’ last Schmooze of the summer, Maison Mercer will continue to host Schmooze every Friday until September 2! We also have many upcoming events! To stay up to date, be sure to check out our website for full event listings. http://torontocityevents.ca/

Their name comes from one of the most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century: Glenn Gould. Their first mission is to honour the legacy he left behind by supporting the arts and to continue to operate as a Centre of Excellence for Canadian and international performances.
Glenn Gould Studio is also a superb recording facility which offers sound isolation, state-of-the-art recording facilities and acoustics that are ideal for classical and jazz recordings. The place is modern and glamorous with the red carpet and the cordons at the entrance. You will feel like a celebrity!
In addition, they are the home to many business functions for local and internationally-based companies, offering an environment ideal for meetings, product launches and seminars.
Indeed, the stage welcomed many concerts and CD recordings by very famous singers such as Shania Twain, Blue Rodeo, The Trews, Mariah Carey, Matt Dusk, Gordon Lightfoot, Natalie McMaster and Feist. And for those who have seen Life of Pi, The Right Kind of Wrong, Our Man in Tehran, Being Julia, One Week and Glitter; these film scores were all recorded here.
This place is ideal for all your events thanks to the unique style of the place, offering a glamorous image combine to a design and modern atmosphere, which will charmed your guests for sure! One thing that impressed us also was all of the in house technical equipment. Having everything in the studio saves from renting all of the expensive AV equipment and paying for labour to set it up. With the new look and feel of the location and in-house equipment the space is ideal for many events especially if a performance is involved.
