I eated ALL the food

It's a blessing that the escalators chose last night to channel their inner stairs, because I am pretty certain I left no sample untasted at the CORE after-hours shopping event last night.

Sure I got the vapours a couple of times after getting caught in a crush of slow moving fashionistas. And I might have been one of the only people there sporting hiking boots instead of sparkly stilettos. But the event was for a good cause (half of the money raised went to the National Music Centre). And oh, the food!

Deliciousness! Hope they raised enough to at least offset the dessert costs. ;)

I understand they did considerably above and beyond that, Al. 7500 people in attendance. That's a lot of cream puffs...

Festive food!Those look so good. Also that "Escalators acting like stairs" sign is the best thing ever.

I did a double take when I saw that sign, BAP. I simply had to walk back and snap a photo.
And the desserts were killer.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so the pictures did nothing for me. But it sounds like you had a good time and it was for a good cause, so good stuff.

It just shows you what a bad photographer I am, John, because the top photo was bison canapes and the bottom one was seafood. I admit I concentrated my attack on the dessert though. You may have liked the single-malt scotch sampling!

where are the pictures of the legs in the sparkly stilettos?

What a spread! I love those kind of events...especially when there are stairs to hike.

I didn't want to appear TOO creepy, Kelly. I got some nice shots of Chantal Kreviazuk if that will do.

There were a few too many fashionistas there for my liking, Leazwell. I'm not great in crowded malls. But the food was worth it!

Bison and seafood? Now you're talking!

See? Something for everyone, John, especially if you are a fan of $600 shoes.
