I just returned from what is probably the most invigorating breakfast I have ever had, all to launch Amex's Summerlicious (July 4-20). But more on that later... right now I'm still buzzing from eating yoghurt & granola 35 metres above Yonge-Dundas Square.
As part of Amex's launch of Summerlicious, I was invited to have breakfast in the sky with Dinner in the Sky. 22 of us were seated, strapped in and hoisted up, up and up! Then the champagne was popped and we all cheered, while I gripped the edge of the table tightly.
The chef, server, photographer & safety guy were walking around in the centre of the table looking after us all. We were served Yoghurt, granola & fruit with pastries and we ate our breakfast, sipped our mimosas and snapped photos to our hearts content. All while dangling in the air on level with the huge billboards that surround Dundas Square..
The chairs even swivelled all the way around so you could dangle your feet and feel truly adventurous. All the while safely strapped into your seat with 3 separate seatbelts.
I've been waiting to try a Dinner in the Sky since I read about it being launched in London, so when I was invited to come out for it's launch in Canada, it was hard to control my enthusiasm.
It was the most invigorating breakfast I've every had and one of my top 10 dining experiences so far. The food was okay, the company was great and the view was spectacular. And it just got better when I relaxed enough to swing my chair around a bit.
This is a not to be missed dining experience and a fantastic way to build some buzz around Summerlicious.
