Last Friday Barbara and I attended Intersection, a gala event at the Design Exchange, Canada’s design museum. The annual event also happened to coincide with the museums grand scale re-launch. Patrons mingled through the events many art installations, including one by Douglas Coupland.
Later, we were whisked up a secret elevator to sample a food tasting by Parkdale’s resto-bar Parts and Labour. Beef tartare, Atlantic salmon caviar and a chocolate truffle-like dessert were served to guests down an elongated dark table. With our stomachs full, Barb and I enjoyed the rest of our night dancing and sipping pomegranate vodka martinis, carefully concocted with Absolut Elyx, one of the event’s many sponsors.
The event was perhaps my favourite night out in the past few months. Not only thanks to the art, food, and drink, but also in part to people in attendance: the young and old, the fashion crowd, benefit hoppers, and the art scene; the crowd was equally as unique and diverse as the art installations themselves.
