Of Course The Weather Sucks – That Doesn’t Mean Life Has To…

It’s true, February seems to be sucker-punching us in the throat and it hurts. BUT, that’s no reason not to soothe that insult with great music and some human warmth – and food and drink – at The Carleton.

Hornell:Sneddon

Two of the city’s best musicians, Matthew Hornell & Andrew Sneddon – along with this week’s guest, Pye on bass – will do their usual fabulous job playing a terrific mix of Country, Bluegrass, Celtic, Folk and whatever else they feel like at our joint tonight.

Live music starts around 9ish and is a downright measly $5 to get in. No better thing to do in Halifax on a Tuesday night so give it some serious thought!

You May Have Noticed That It Snowed Last Night…

Yes, it snowed last night. A lot. More than anyone expected. But it’s over now and there’s no reason to still be afraid.

If you’re looking for something fab to do tonight (Tuesday, February 3rd), come on down to see Matthew Hornell & Andrew Sneddon do their Terrific Tag-Team Tunes Tuesdays. It’s a great night of live music with a couple of the best musicians in the city. It’s cheap – $5 at the door – and it usually starts around 8:30 so early enough that you can get home to bed before the news at 11.

Unless you’re cowering in your basement, that is…

TaDa!

Howdy web browser. Welcome to our new Carleton website. It’s been a long time coming – and we still have a lot to do – but figured there’s no time like the present so we’re making the move. This version should be much better on mobile devices too. Bear with us while we work out the kinks (not the actual Kinks, although I would like to get Ray Davies in our venue one of these days) and please feel free to let us know what you think of it and/or point out problems if you encounter them.

As I said, we’re beavering away getting more content up so I encourage you to come back soon to see the progress.

If you haven’t been to a live show at our lovely restaurant in a while, make a point of it soon. If you’ve never been here – for a meal or a show – what are you waiting for!?!

We’re Open For Business As Usual

Well, it looks like the city has somehow managed to survive another “storm of the century,” or as I like to look at it, “just another winter day with a little snow.”

So, today – Wednesday, January 28th – we’re open for business as usual at 11:30 AM for lunch through dinner and our live music show tonight – Hornell’s Hump Day Hullabaloo – at 8:30 PM. Only $5 at the door for the best show in the city tonight.

Dateline Halifax – Tuesday, January 27th – Snowmaggedon / Snowpocalypse / Jeez-it-Just-Snowed-A-Little

Oh the humanity! OK, so it snowed a little today. I was up early, shoveled it, drove in it and then shoveled it again. Right now it seems like whatever it is, is probably over for now. However, as usual, the media has whipped the city into a cowering sweat over it so we don’t expect many folks will chance leaving their houses and taking “their lives in their hands” to come downtown to have yummy food and lovely drinks and/or to hear exceptionally good live music.

SO, we are reluctantly closing for the night and will move our usual Terrific Tag-Team Tunes Tuesday night with Matthew Hornell & Andrew Sneddon to tomorrow night instead. It’ll be the same start time – 8:30 PM – and the same $5 at the door to get in.

Hornell:Sneddon

The only problem with that is we’ll have to lose the “T” alliteration and come up with something else… hmmm… How about “Hornell’s Hump Day Hullabaloo?” Who’s with me!?!
