Amex Delights: A Night to Remember at the Asado BBQ

By: Alison Silveira

Just when we thought BBQ season was over, Amex invited us to attend one last splendid South American inspired BBQ filled with tasty eats, lively music and a whole lot of fun! The 2nd annual Evergreen Brick Works Asado BBQ event was held to raise funds for Evergreen Brick Works.

As true foodies, American Express has given us the opportunity to head to the front of the line and enjoy scrumptious meals with both Winterlicious and Summerlicious, Taste of Toronto and most recently, the Evergreen Brick Works Asado BBQ event. 
It is important to create memories with new dining experiences and American Express Delights helped us do just that. 40 of Toronto's hottest chefs came together under one roof to create delectable dishes to tickle our taste buds. Being an Amex Cardmember certainly has its privileges. Amex Delights enhanced our experience, as we had early admission to the event with first access to the chef stations and tastings of the evening's fare. Amex's Black Bandana Lounge was a swanky roped section reserved especially for Amex Cardmembers, where we could kick back, relax and enjoy additional food and drink in style and comfort.
Partygoers were in a festive spirit with lively music pulsating through the speakers. Chefs Anthony Rose, Rocco Augustino and Steve Gonzalez grilled sizzling meats over an open-air parrilla barbeque. The chefs pleasantly served up mouth-watering tacos, biscuits, soup and grilled vegetables and it was a real treat to hobnob with them. 
We also had the opportunity to sample sinfully sweet treats we had never enjoyed before; the smooth and creamy supiro limeƱo was a decadent dessert like none other. Made with maple cinnamon custard and white port reduction, it was topped with a maple pecan cookie and was my favourite treat of the night. 
We whet our whistles on free-flowing fruity cocktails and danced to pumping live music. 
Revellers also had the chance to saddle-up and mount and ride a wild mechanical bull. For a more subdued activity, we had the chance to participate in a silent auction to bid on a range of luxury items from a high-end designer purse to a weekend getaway in Maryland. 

Not only does Amex provide exclusive access to fun and exciting events, the company also has a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility. I have come to love Amex even more now that I have learned that it supports important organizations such as Evergreen Brick Works.

We had a thrilling night at the Evergreen Brick Works Asado BBQ with many entertaining surprises and American Express Delights made it happen for us! American Express Delights is a rewarding online program that provides special offers and novel experiences for American Express Cardmembers. With busy schedules, we appreciate how super easy and convenient it is to purchase Delights and the packages take all the work out of planning a fun night out.
