Group C enjoyed a dinner at the Muddy Duck restaurant on Dundas hosted by Ron and Lorraine Linklater. We were almost a full house, including a guest from another Probus Club.

A prix-fixe menu was the favourite choice, offering a variety of main entre‘s, appetizers and cakes. Discussion covered current events, sports, travelling …etc.

Probus Dinner Group H convened at Michael’s Back Door restaurant on Wednesday Feb 19th.  Present were Andrew Barham, Pete and Vera Foreman, Rod and Sybil McLeod, Ron and Ruth Ormiston, Reg and Alison Perkin.  Absent were Dave and Anne Irwin, holidaying in Arizona. 
We were seated in a private room on comfortable chairs around a large table with soft background music. Relaxing and easy to visit with everyone.  One waitress looked after us and the food was excellent. And to top it off, the joke I’d chosen, a tradition in our group, was well received.  Recommend Michael’s for good food and good service.

Dinner group C enjoyed a lovely outing at Jesters Restaurant. Our host, Sam Barnes arranged to have a separate room which allowed the exchange of conversation between all of us. Naturally, current topics were discussed: from corvird-19 to train blockades, but as usual, travelling experiences were told.

Our second dinner outing for the fall of 2021 was held at La Castile on Wednesday evening, Oct. 20, 2021 and attended by the Baileys, the Allans and the Marks.
Our conclusions were: yes, expensive;
yes, the quality was outstanding; yes, the service was impeccable.
The restaurant was very diligent in checking vaccine passports, IDs and spacing out of tables.
Highly recommended if the pricing doesn't bother you.

Attending the dinner were John and Elsa Bedell, Joyce Reissner, Ray and Anne Thompson , Doug and Mary Cleland.
The dinner was co-ordinated by Diane Stephens who was unable to attend because of illness. Fran Corkill and Marion Rogers were also unable to attend.

Chelsea is small cozy restaurant in a refurbished 19th Century home. The proprietors  talked to us about the history of Chelsea which goes back almost a hundred years (we even saw  a picture of George Renfrew when he was a lot younger).  The service was friendly, prompt, the food was delicious and the prices quite reasonable. We ordered Rack of lamb, stuffed Dover sole, Chicken Parmesan and all were great. You can also bring your own bottle of wine and they will serve it to you with a $10 corkage charge.

We would definitely recommend Chelsea for other dinner groups.
