Here is the mise-en-place for what turned out to be a really good puttanesca, one of our absolute favourites.

What If They Gave A Party ….

July 16, 2017

… and no-one showed up?  That was kind of what it was like at Grandview Park this afternoon.

Today was the first of three Sundays In the Park events that the Commercial Drive Business Development Society (the local BIA) are organising this summer. I am pleased they are taking this initiative but clearly they need to work on their promotion of the festivities.  The event was scheduled for 1 pm to 4 pm and there were, perhaps, less than forty people in the Park at three this afternoon.

I don’t recall seeing any posters for the event on the Drive. I did see some notice in Twitter earlier this week, but that was it.  The weather was perfect — a touch cooler than earlier this week, and with a splendid breeze — and the patios on the Drive were full and bustling with business, but this Zoomba and Salsa party didn’t attract the attention it may have deserved.
