An Exclusive Summerlicious Lunch at c5

Summerlicious Lunch with SIP: July 12, 2011
Every year we participate in the Toronto's Summerlicious program and use the excuse to renew networking in an intimate environment and meet some members, advisory panel and volunteers. This year lucky 13 met at the exquisite ROM's restaurant, c5 Restaurant & Lounge, located at the pinnacle of the new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.

SIP Members Enjoy "Level 5" Service and Socializing at Summerlicious 2011!

The Society of Internet Professionals held its annual Summerlicious Lunch Meeting at c5 Restaurant & Lounge at the Royal Ontario Museum this past summer on July 12, 2011. SIPpers were treated to an epicurean three-course lunch featuring a choice of upscale fare.

I went with the Arugula & Strawberry Salad to start and the Lake Erie Whitefish for my main course. The desserts were tempting to say the least — Summer Berry Shortcake, Chocolate Mousse Cake and Panna Cotta — but didn’t exactly suit my gluten/dairy-free diet. Luckily, Manager Scott Sawyer and his staff were more than accommodating, and I was served up an eclectic mix of gourmet sorbet featuring exotic flavours such as Apple/Fennel — the perfect finish to the perfect light summer’s lunch on a hot Toronto day.

If you’ve never been to c5, it’s worthwhile to check it out, if for no other reason than the vaulted ceilings (top floor of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, hence the name) and contemporary look definitely give the place an open and futuristic vibe. In many ways it was the perfect setting for SIP, always looking to the future of online technology and the impact the Internet continues to have on businesses and professionals from all walks of life. Speaking of which, the eclectic mix of SIPpers at my table made this year’s Summerlicious event a truly memorable one — not least for the leads it produced.

I’m looking forward to next year’s Summerlicious, and all the truly enjoyable and valuable SIP events between now and then.
