CITYBITES: When freelancers get invited to a restaurant launch

A couple nights ago, I was invited to preview the newest restaurant in Toronto's financial district, SpeakEasy 21. Media types like me (I love calling myself a media type) gathered on the far side of the restaurant, far away from those people with the crisp suits and expense cards, and gorged ourselves in tacos, burgers, and this heavenly bacon-wrapped Medjool date thing. We washed it down with vodka, rye, and then tequila. And then we went home to invoice the night because hard work deserves pay. Read about my experience at SpeakEasy 21 for City Bites Magazine.
