On Saturday, I attend the Governor General’s Gala. It’s a formal, annual event held in Ottawa where they celebrate great Canadian performing artists. The evening started with mingling amongst appetizers of sushi, mini quiche, bite size salads, small bbq’ed veggie skewers, rice balls on a stick and more. The drinks were flowing and everyone was out in their best attire.
After about an hour, we were ushered into the large theatre where we watched different presentations, dances, speeches, the orchestra performed, etc. to celebrate each of the artists being recognized (I think there were seven of them). There was an intermission and more recognitions, but the best part was the VIP After Party on the roof top. Keep reading below for more…
Again with the Baguette-Me-Nots photo ops.
A panoramic view of the roof-top tent area. Hard to see but there was a ton of food, drinks (they were strictly serving Belvedere vodka, if you wanted vodka #ohyoufancyhuh), a live band that included a celo, beautiful chandeliers, and just a great time overall.
