"Spirited"­ Sisters Holiday Dinner

*Note: I have had permission from the restaurant to increase our group size to 20

Let’s get in the “spirit” of celebration and meet for a little holiday cheer!

Badali’s is a newer restaurant located on Yonge St in Aurora.  Formerly a ‘pub’ it’s been remodeled into a chic urban restaurant featuring mostly Italian fare.

There’s a special “groups” holiday menu (with choices) that includes 3 courses – appetizer, main, dessert and coffee – for $44/pp. Please note that this price  includes taxes and gratuities.  Other beverages (alcohol etc.) are extra and will be individually billed.

I’ve booked us for a Thursday as weekend commitments abound and many places are busy this time of year.  I hope you can join us!

If we get a good number and the ‘event’ is a go, I’ll take a poll to see if anyone wants to do a “Secret Sister Santa” gift exchange – might be fun!  We could do a “healthy living” theme with a low $ value gift to make it a little different from other holiday events. I’m open to ideas!  It’ll be optional to participate in the gift exchange of course.

Payment will be collected at the restaurant on event day.  Cash only. Thanks!

    What great responses - thank you to all!

    I'm SO happy that everyone enjoyed our outing - it was truly my pleasure to organize it and ESPECIALLY to meet friends and welcome new "spirits" to our group! Thanks to Lexie for helping with the ornament and decorating 'theme' and I happily admit that any success was due to her awesome gift of creativity! Happy Christmas and New Year to all and a special and big spirit hug to Monica who makes it ALL happen for our group throughout the year!

    Here's to an awesome "spirited women" 2014! I feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful, positive and inspiring group.

    Hi Ladies! Just got off the phone with Ali and she said you had a great time. I am so disappointed I had to miss (gee....red wine with the "sisters" or driving to a hockey tournament in Sudbury - I drew the short straw!) Just saw a few pictures it looks like you had fun. I hope you got a kick out of the xmas decorations, Alison and I had fun making them. Perhaps it will become a tradition....I'm getting my crafty hat on for next year! Have a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2014!

    Is there going to be a Secret Sister Santa?

    December 1, 2013

    • Alison B

      No Susan, I didn't get much uptake on the idea so...NO shopping at least, so that's a good thing. There may be a little surprise there though.... :)
