Insomnia Tweetup

Finally organized my very first tweetup yayy^_^

I heard several good reviews about Insomnia so I decided to host my first tweetup there.

Since there were some people I knew as well as some new faces thought it would be fun to create a seating chart. Nobody minded about the seating except for one particular person. (You know who you are missy:P) But it's ok since she was just kidding, hopefully.

Since we were such a large group we had to wait a bit for our table. Once we were seated then the fun began.

I had the eggs lorraine which came wit 2 poached eggs, peameal bacon, cheddar cheese topped with house made hollandaise served with a side of home fries and baby greens.

Unfortunately, my eggs were overdone where the yolk wasn't even running. Majority of the people ordered a benny and mine was the only one that was overcooked:( But our waitress Emily quickly corrected that and brought me a new plate afterwards and it was perfect.

Loved the home fries. They even mixed in the ketchup so I didn't have to do anything except just eat them.

While they prepared another dish for me the waitress offered me a drink on the house. I decided to go with a caesar. Yum:)

Here are pix of some of the food others had. I don't know what they were but they sure looked good. Think a lot of people had the same dish as me so I didn't take a pix of every dish.

Here was a slice of blueberry pancake which was graciously given by Dan. Apparently this was not even a quarter of the dish. I wished I had taken a pix of the whole pancake since it was humongous but it was scrumptious. I am definitely ordering this next time I come here. Thanks again Dan for sharing your pancake oh and Sand for giving me a piece since technically Dan gave it to him lol:)

At the end of our meal, our waitresses came with a tray of complimentary shots. That was so sweet of them and it was a perfect way to end the meal. I'm not sure what it was but it was good:)

Aside from my first dish the food was delicious. The portions were enormous. Everyone enjoyed their food and we all had a great time.

I want to thank @Sandwongsta, @manleyh, @mgip, @aarietta, @chrisunagi, @lo_tek, @soda_ninja, @cinna_min, @wherejessate, @deguzzi, @boneats, @thebonnielui, @raykao, @rsizzlex, @kiki_BFF, @lu_amy7, @msgfonz, Tina and Ben for making my first tweetup an awesome event. Had so much fun and definitely a lot of laughs.

I also want to thank the staff at Insomnia for accommodating our large group and providing excellent customer service. They were quick, friendly, and very attentive. I'm sure we were a handful and boy were we loud or maybe it was me lol. Regardless, I was so happy that everything turned out great. Now gotta return again and try that mammoth size blueberry pancake.

TOTAL BILL $9-11/dish...EAT HERE NEXT!!!

If you made the seating charts just for the tweetup then I'd love to see what you do for a dinner party!

I had always thought that place was a late night bar. My friends are so fixated to goto Perkins for brunch and this great when we recover from getting wasted on bloor west. :)

I would love to come to one of you tweetups! :)
