MeetUp - In Defense of Food - Michael Pollen & Soho House- Special Event

Hello Brookies!

Our next book selection is "In Defense of Food by Michael Pollen”. 

I am super excited to announce our next Meetup. We will be hosting this special event at the Soho House Toronto. It is a private members club that was founded in London for those in film, media and creative industries. Therefore, if you are not a member, you may not get a chance to experience this exclusive venue.

We will be sitting on the third floor which is home to the Pretzel Bell Bar – named after the tavern which originally occupied the building – and the Roof Terrace, a partially covered space with greenery, sofas, armchairs and an outdoor fireplace. This will be fully booked just for us!

The brunch includes made-to-order waffle and pancake stations, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, roasted fish, salads and sides, assorted breakfast pastries, bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon and accoutrement, and artisanal cheeses and charcuterie. It will be a fun foodie experience!

Here is the kicker, since The Soho House is an event venue and not a restaurant, we will need 30 people minimum to make this happen.

The cost of the buffet brunch is $ 40 including gratuities and taxes. I will need everyone who does RSVP to send an e-mail money transfer to [masked] and use Soho as the password ahead of time to secure the venue. I will need this by September 15th. If we get 30 people, then it is a go.

I will not accept the transfer from everyone until we hit 30 people.

So if you do RSVP, please send the transfer as soon as possible so we can secure the numbers and venue.

Everyone is welcome to invite a friend or significant other to get the numbers up quickly. If you do, please RSVP + 1 and e-mail the money transfer for two people.

Please do not RSVP if you are not serious about going. I had to use some of my networks to make this special event happen for a reasonable price.

Again, if you do RSVP, please send over the money within a couple days of your RSVP so we may secure the spot.

I have already received money from 3 people for this event. We need 27 more.

I hope you are as excited as I am about this!

    Hey there... you say you need 30 people for this thing, but you've limited attendance to 26. Just wanted to point this out. I'm more than happy to still hand over $40 and hope for the best. Let me know. Thanks very much.

      We have another 13 people that have paid and rsvp'ed to the event and paid not on meetup. Originally we did not have enough people in the timeframe and needed to go outside meet up.

    Hi Zuzana, I've accepted but have no idea how to do an email money transfer. Never used it before so maybe you can give me some details. Thanks. Jacqui

      Hi there. I bank with HSBC and don't have the option to make email transfers from my online banking site. Do you have PayPal?

      September 8, 2013

    • Zuzana

      No, I don't have an account. We could always meet up in the city and you could write a cheque.

    Why was this book selected when Milan Kundera received the most votes in the poll?

    1 · August 26, 2013

    • Zuzana

      It was a close second and the group decided that we should do a food related theme based on our next venue meetup

      August 26, 2013

    • Zuzana

      I should have mentioned that in the meetup. Sorry!
