The Hot House Cafe is an informal venue, popular with many Irish groups, that provides good food and service. We will have our own area, the Mezzanine - a large, open, and private section at the back of the restaurant - both for the cocktails and for the meal. There is parking nearby the restaurant and it is close to public transit. Underground paid parking is available off of Church Street between King and Front at INDIGO. There is also a Green P Parking Lot at Church & Esplanade.

Menu: there will be a choice from several main courses (see below) ordered on the night together with salad, desert and tea or coffee. Soft drinks are included. There will be an additional charge payable by individuals for non-alcoholic beverages such as juices and espresso based coffees. Wine and other drinks are not included and can be purchased separately and charged to individual tabs for settlement with the restaurant at the end of the evening. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know.

Format: the cocktail period beforehand will be a cash bar for 1½ hr to allow for circulation of people for mixing, mingling, and networking. Seating will be an individual choice. There will be no head table or formal speaker. It is hoped that people will circulate to other tables between courses in order to meet more of those attending.

Dress: Respectably casual.

Price: $70.000 per person including coffee, tea and soft drinks as well as taxes and gratuity.
