Meeting Melanie from thirty four flavours

I FINALLY got a chance to meet Melanie from thirty four flavours blog. Once in a blue moon, you meet someone that you hit it off with instantly. And since I follow her blog religiously, it almost felt like I had known her for months.

Melanie invited me to the Media Profile Christmas Party at the very hipster-chic The Burroughes venue on Queen West. We spotted Lloyd Robertson in the crowd canoodling with a crowd of young ladies about a quarter of his age. You go Lloyd!

As you may know, the former CTV newscaster recently released his memoirs titled The Kind of Life It’s Been. Melanie and I had to fight off the temptation to ask for a photograph. Instead, I went the super creepy route of taking this very blurry photo of him.

Besides meeting Melanie and bumping into former newscasters, my favourite part of the party was maple syrup-covered cheese. Yeah you heard me. A catering company named Ninutik was there rolling balls of cheese over syrup on plates of snow. So abashedly Canadian and so delicious.

Big thanks to Melanie for the invite — we’ll have to hit up Bannock for brunch when I get back from my holidays 🙂

P.S. You can check out our photo booth photos here.
