Treat Yourself with a McCafé Iced Frappé

They were calling for some kind of summer storm last night in Toronto. And our McCafé party was on the rooftop of the Thompson. But my ma, the Squawking Chicken, she waved it off like she always does. "No problem," she said. "But ma, the meteorologist is seeing rain." It's meteorology vs Feng Shui Fortune telling. Guess who won?

It was a glorious evening.

And it was my first evening out in 10 days as a resident of Toronto. I bailed on Jacek and the unpacking for a treat with McCafé 's Iced Frappes and a spectacular view. And no guilt. Because it's going to be 6 weeks straight of balls-out work. Our new talk show launches on September 2. Etalk is back from hiatus on Monday. And there's TIFF prep. And a major writing deadline due August 26. And then TIFF. Oh, yeah, and after that I turn 40. So I'll take my McCafé Vanilla Chai Tea Iced Frappé with a view of the Toronto skyline any time I can get it!

You want to do it together? We're giving away freebies. Because we are not Leonardo DiCaprio who's been on holiday since May. Sometimes our treats last only half an hour. You may as well make sure it's refreshing and sweet.

So let’s get you set up with some drinks.  Like we did yesterday, we’re giving away 10 more McCafé Iced Frappés gift packs for you to share with your friends.  Each pack includes a $20 McDonald’s gift card and ten (10) “Be my Guest” drink vouchers to share with your friends and co-workers.   If you’d like a chance to win, email [email protected] with “More McCafé Iced Frappés” before midnight PT Friday, August 9, 2013.  Standard contest terms apply.  Value of each prize is approximately $40. 

Attached:  Some pictures of last night’s party! And bonus -- when I came home after my McCafé escape, Jacek fixed the hot water! I took my first hot shower in 10 days. It's like I was rewarded for going out.
