DINE and Destinations - - TORONTO -

After hav­ing lived in Eu­rope, Natasha Se­mone missed hav­ing her aper­a­tivo. “I missed the after-work cul­ture of Eu­rope,” she tells me, and says she felt the need to recre­ate that cos­mopoli­tan at­mos­phere in Toronto with the Cock­tail Crawl & So­cial Club. Both a club and a so­cial event, but al­ways at a dif­fer­ent venue, this is a way to bring peo­ple to­gether, to net­work. “You don’t know when and where it will be un­til you get an in­vi­ta­tion,” she teases. The venue is cho­sen for its am­bi­ence and de­sign. Past events have been held at the Ritz Carl­ton Ho­tel, Troika Vodka Bar, the Thomp­son Ho­tel’s rooftop and The Spoke Club. There is al­ways a com­pli­men­tary glass of wine and a cock­tail like a caipir­inha, mo­hito, or a spe­cialty cock­tail to match the theme of the evening. It be­gins at 7 p.m. and lasts un­til the mood of the crowd says it’s time to go home. Don’t for­get to col­lect a bag of gifts on your way out!
