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.

Engines were roaring and barbecue was smoking as guests poured into 1903 Cafe, Toronto’s Harley-Davidson cafe. The grand opening of the cafe was supported by numerous open-bars, complimentary barbecue, a DJ and a JumpStart Rider Simulator.

The simulator is a stationary Harley-Davidson motorcycle, fitted to a Jump Start stand where attendees were able to sit on the bike and feel the power as they revved its engine. Even the most inexperienced of riders were able to take part in the fun.

Open just till September, 1903 Cafe gives Harley enthusiasts a look into the rich history of the company by showcasing an extensive lineup of bikes, tools and branded gear. 1903 Cafe aims to bring bike lovers from far-and-wide to enjoy the memorabilia, fresh coffee and great conversation.  The Harley-Davidson Cafe is a Canadian concept and the first of its kind in the world.

After a pour of one of their freshly made coffees, provided by Toronto’s Fahrenheit Coffee, the Harley-Davidson’s won’t be the only thing speeding off into the sunset.

The space is available for special events and can fit up to 350 people and currently has long, communal bench seating with a few lounge areas.
