It was a new foodie event in the Liberty Village sort of area at 99 Sudbury Ave. It was presented by Now Magazine and it was called EAT UP TO. It was a pretty small event as food events go. The thing that I wasn't fond of was the $20 entrance fee but I think that went to charity.. at least I hope so. There really wasn't a whole lot of actual food there. There was molecular gastronomy, Olive oils, drinks, services and social media apps and things that relate to food. I had a couple of things and left to try and make it to another event in Markham but I never made it to that one because of our great Toronto Traffic and construction combo. There were a few interesting things but I think I would have been able to try more interesting foods if I had gone to the other event. I think Toronto is getting to the point where there are too many foodie events at the same time. Maybe someone should invent a master calendar so that there's always something going on that you can check out. Overall it was a really hot day and the best thing that I had at this event was the popsicle below and the Blood Orange Orangina. I left before the fun guy making a Paella was finished otherwise I would have tried that for sure.
The one thing I wish I had gone later for was to hear someone from Gastropost my regular hangout speak about all foodie things in Toronto.. I went when it first opened so I was the first one to test the square payment system.. I couldn't find a bank machine in the area. So I guess it probably got a lot busier after I left a while later. Better planing on my part next time... Oh.. and there were food trucks there as you can see from the pics.... I kinda felt bad for them. .they usually get huge line ups and nobody was lining up... not a good day in the sun for them... well I hope to have time for more events soon... but in the meantime i am busy making money to be able to check out all the things going on in this city.
