Back before Stargate, before my years on teen sitcom Student Bodies, before my time story-editing for the CBS Saturday morning lineup, I was the Manager of Animation Development at an animation studio in Montreal. It’s been a long while, but I still keep in touch with a few of my former co-workers and even get together with them on occasion.
Like yesterday, for instance, when Anne-Marie Perrotta flew in for super-secret business. And dinner with us. At Patria, a Spanish tapas restaurant on King Street that came highly recommended from Prodigy Picture’s resident foodie, Natalie Cooper.
Also joining us on this night was another former face from my animation days, Natalie Dumoulin, now Vice President Creative Affairs at 9story Media Group.
What we had –
In addition to about a dozen other dishes including blistered pardon peppers, chorizo bombas, goat cheese with orange blossom honey and fig, patatas bravas, empanadas, roasted cauliflower, and chocolate pudding with olive oil and sea salt.
Patria: 478 King St. West
After dinner, we headed over to Natalie’s place for drinks – although, to be fair, she’s the only one who did any actual drinking, opening up a bottle of red to celebrate our re-connecting after all these years.
Just like old times!
But with more tapas.
And less voice actors.

That’s so cool that you’ve kept in touch with the old (old, old) gang!
I don’t think we’ve seen food pics for a long time! 🙂 I kinda missed them.
One of those Octopus looks like it is crawling away from it’s potato. Sounds like your kind of food. Why do your really old friends look so young? Where they fresh out of High School when you worked with them? Joe you have a lot of friends!
Lovely, enjoyable, pleasant all around
People still discuss Caillou’s voice on the mama message board I frequent. It’s the only show I can think of that doesn’t trigger sensory issues in the kids, but does in mamas.
Saw this and thought of you. Dogs eating peanut butter in slow motion. Enjoy.
Say hi to AMP for me. Long time no see.
Oops…Joey, delete that other one… 😛
@ Dallas – And I’ll see your peanut butter video, and raise you another minion…
Where are the obligatory chocolate offerings?
Yum, churros! And I love octopus, but without potatoes, please.
