My outdoor lunch at Celsius. Sue Frause photo.
O Canada! Yes, there is a Canadian connection here in the Big Apple, where my husband and I are spending the Christmas holiday with our son who lives and works in Manhattan.
Celsius: A Canadian Lounge is located at the Pond at Bryant Park, right in the heart of midtown Manhattan. It's sponsored by the Canadian Tourism Commission and they have several activities during the holiday season:
Holiday Tree ~ The 51-ft. balsam fir tree was donated by the Jean-Luc Beloin Farm in East Hereford, Quebec. Designed by Shawn Gibson of Teatro Verde (with support from Winward Canada), it is decorated with 30,000 white lights and 3,000 sparkling ornaments.
Mountie Mondays ~ Monday, Dec. 29 is the final day that members of the famous Royal Canadian Mounted Police will be at Bryant Park, posing for pictures with visitors, etc. Stop by and say HI!
