Today, Mike and I went to a wonderful couples’ wedding celebration at the Jamaica Pavilion on Parc Jean Drapeau, the site of the Expo 67 World Fair! So exciting- we took the metro (a system that was inaugurated in October 1966 under Mayor Drapeau) and a bus which dropped us off at the casino (bleh) and then we got to walk through a fabulous park. The October leaves were lovely and we took advantage of the casual-come-as-you-are dress code and wore cozy fall sweaters in autumnal colours. It’s neat to explore a part of one’s hometown that yer not familiar with- especially with such cool history. The Jamaica Pavilion has recently been rebuilt and was a beautiful spot to celebrate the union of these two excellent people, one of whom has Jamaican heritage. Best part of all: the meal, a Jamaican-inspired BBQ, which was provided by the folks behind one of my fave food blogs …An Endless Banquet.
