E - January 2020
Dinner Club E dined at Aielli Restorante in Port Credit on Tuesday the 14th, hosted by Joan and Bill Tourgis.

We had a good turnout with 4 of our 5 couples attending. Art and Sheri Howard chose to dine in a warmer climate. The menu variety was wide, and our choices were quite varied, and enjoyed by all.

Several of us had not been to  Aielli’s for years,  and agreed we would certainly try it again.

Dinner Club A had its January get-together on Tuesday, January 21 at
Merlot restaurant on Bloor Street West near Royal York Road.  Merlot is an
interesting French bistro with great food, a friendly staff, and art and posters covering the walls.  Two of our couples were missing in action -- one in the sunny south and another because of a prior commitment -- but much fun was had by Gil and Frances Clay, Bob and Beth Martin, Ken and Marg McCuaig, and the host for the evening, Bob Weese. The food garnered rave reviews with special mention of the complementary sparkling wine, the onion soup, the Arctic Char, a lovely pasta dish, and the wonderful desserts -- though there were a couple of complaints that the steak was a bit chewy. It was a real treat to spend a very wintry night with great food and drink and in the company of good friends.

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.
