Picnic in the Sky

Let's take advantage of the gorgeous weather and have a picnic dinner in the sky :) I have the rooftop patio booked for Sun Aug 18th from 6pm to 10pm. Technically, there is no alcohol or booze allowed but you can bring Sangria or "punches" and that's usually fine. There is a BBQ grill available but please let me know ahead of time if you want to use it.

Some food suggestions:
BBQ chicken
Salads
Fresh fruits
Pies
Sandwiches
Cheese plate
Bruschetta
Sushi
Ok basically anything :)
Drinks

I'm going to try my hand at a homemade peach pie

    I really enjoyed my 1st meetup with this group .. food was delicious .. view was stunning .. so many nice new friends I made at this meetup .. looking forward to many other meetups. I also enjoyed coming back to the old neighbourhood .. I miss my old office in the former Woodward's building as it was a favourite 2nd home to me.

    Hi all says 70% chance of rain all day Sunday. I know that's hard to believe with all the great weather we have had and of course it could change. What would be the alternate arrangements? Is patio covered?

    August 13, 2013

    • Bonnie

      Yes, there is a large indoor party lounge on the same floor so not to worry :) Hopefully the weather will hold out though !

    Hi all I can bring drinks, non alcoholic of course, lemonade, ice tea. any requests for summer picnic beverages?

    August 13, 2013

  • Ming C

    I'd like to use the grill. I'll bring some chicken wings.

    August 12, 2013

  • Amy K.

    Pondering what to make!! Also, please be mindful of Bonnie's comments on "Alcohol" and if you are going to bring Sangria or a "punch" please make sure in a plastic unlabeled container. We don't want out hostess to get in trouble with her building!!! Bonnie, is the grill a gas grill?

    August 9, 2013

    • Bonnie

      Hi Amy, yes I think so ... sometimes the lighter doesn't work though so better to bring your own ! Let me know if you need to use it. I'll get the key from concierge.

      August 12, 2013

    • Bonnie

      PS No need to go all crazy disguising the alcohol. My friends were drinking beer up there last year and no one checked. Just be discrete and it's better to not have wine or beer bottles

      August 12, 2013

  • Jan

    Beautiful venue, I have a girlfriend who lives in the building.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
