Today's WagJag will "empress" you: $49 for a charter cruise with dinner on the Empress of Canada (a $109.61 value).
What better way to spend an evening than washing away the stresses of life on a beautiful three-hour cruise? While your eyes feast on the Toronto Harbour and Lagoon Islands, your belly feasts on a Latin meal you're unlikely to forget. Whet your appetite with a spicy black bean spread served alongside white baguette slices. Cubano quesadillas are next on the menu; tortillas are grilled and then stuffed with a hearty filling of ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese, dill pickles and mustard. Dinner conversation continues over an ensalada Cubano made of ripe tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, radishes and white onions, all tossed in olive oil, white vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. The Latin meal culminates in arroz con pollo (rice with chicken), a dish featuring browned chicken cooked with rice, onions, garlic, peppers and tomatoes seasoned with olive oil, oregano, fresh ground black pepper and chilies. Leave room for Pina Asada, a dessert featuring grilled pineapple slices with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon alongside espresso with warm milk. The meal is served buffet style so you can eat whatever floats your boat!
After you've digested properly, grab a partner and sway to Top Dance 40 and Latin beats played all night thanks to a professional DJ. The largest vessel cruising Toronto's Island Lagoons, the Empress of Canada offers a stunning night out with plenty of Toronto views, Latin food and hit music to entertain and inspire.
