Azure Restaurant at the InterContinental Hotel

Untitled
This year, we were invited to dinner during Toronto's Summerlicious event, where participating restaurants offer a prix-fixe menu. This is a great opportunity to sample some of the finest restaurants in the city - some people take it very seriously. #TeamLCF was fortunate enough to be invited to a dinner at the InterContinental Hotel's Azure Restaurant, #ICTorontoCentre. We got dressed up, and sadly, this was to be my last time with Eugene. I don't want to talk about it; the pain is still too fresh, too raw.

Dinner was enjoyable. Indeed, sometimes it's not about the food - it's about the company too. My buddy is leaving the country, far, far away. Who knows when I'll be able to see her again. We went to a friend's gathering at the Spoke Club later that night - yet another pair that's going away for school. So we treasure these moments when we have them. Until we eat and drink together again, my friend!
