Summerlicious reservations accepted June 15 and 16 for American Express Front of the Line®
  
As part of their title sponsorship of Summerlicious, American Express is
offering Front Of The Line access to the reservation lines of participating
restaurants today. The lines will be open to the general public on Thursday,
June 17, which will be officially announced at a media conference at the Le
Royal Meridien King Edward Hotel's Café Victoria, 37 King St. E. The
conference, which takes place on Wednesday, June 16 at 2:30 p.m., will also see
Mayor David Miller and City Councilor Brian Ashton announce details of the
up-coming Celebrate Toronto Street Festival.

As a benefit of holding an American Express card, cardmembers automatically go
to the Front Of The Line for tickets, admissions and reservations for some of
the most popular events in the Toronto area. Many cardmembers have taken
advantage of this exclusive service to purchase great seats to sold out shows
such as Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Diana Krall, Lord of the Dance and Toronto
Raptors home game.

By simply providing their American Express card number in advance of the card
purchase, the members will be able to make reservations at Summerlicious'
participating restaurants on June 15 and 16, before the reservation line opens
up to the rest of the public on June 17.

Admission to the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival is free and getting there
couldn't be easier. All five festival sites are accessible via the Toronto
Transit Commission (TTC). Festival subway stops on the Yonge line are Dundas,
Bloor, St. Clair, Eglinton and Lawrence stations. TTC one-day passes can be
purchased for $7.75 on both Saturday and Sunday.

For more information on the Celebrate Toronto Street Festival, the public can
call Access Toronto at 416-338-0338 or visit
