Dinner With Mr. D - Toronto Teacher Mom

Dinner With Mr. D

Last week, I was extremely honoured to be a guest of CBC at a special dinner with the cast of Mr. D. Hosted at P.F. Chang's at Shops at Don Mills, the event was in celebration of season 4 which premiered last Tuesday. If you aren't familiar with the show, Mr. D first premiered in 2012 and follows the hilarious antics of a private school teacher played by award-winning comedian Gerry Dee. Dinner with the cast was very amusing, to say the least, and the food was delicious. What surprised me the most? How extremely friendly everyone was. That and how incredibly dreamy Mark Little's eyes are. While I was somewhat disappointed that Jonathan Torrens and I sat too far apart to play footsies, I was lucky enough to be seated next to Wes Williams near Darrin Rose and Canadian Screen Award nominee Lauren Hammersley. For more photos from the event, head on over to BestOfToronto.net. Oh, and a big congratulations to executive producers Gerry Dee and Michael Volpe on the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards nomination for Best Comedy Series! It's well-deserved!
