Comedy THIS Saturday Night!

Jay Malone is one of the funniest dudes we’ve ever had on our stage and a great way to help kick off our 15th Anniversary celebrations. Jay’s also recording and shooting his set, so come out to be part of the audience, you know, for posterity’s sake. And Clair Belford is also performing! We guarantee it’ll be worth your comedic while. AND, it’ll be over by 8:30, so it’ll leave you plenty of time to get up to whatever shenanigans you’ve got in mind for the rest of the night.

Mind you, hanging around later to see Tevon Tynes & his fab Superstatics band for free wouldn’t be the worst idea…

Burger Bash!

Why Spam and pineapple? Because it’s a delicious combo that hits rich/fresh/sweet/salty flavors and crisp/moist textures. Take a tropical break this Burger Bash and enjoy a juicy smoky pork patty and classic seared spam slice, with sweet tangy pineapple chutney, umami sesame dressing, cabbage slaw, crispy onions, and teriyaki sauce ($14). Pair with famous Carleton frites or side salad ($6) and quench your thirst with a cold Garrison Tall Ship Ale on tap ($6.50). $1 from every burger sold, every side sold, and every brew sold goes to Feed Nova Scotia so a full meal deal means we contribute $3 to this worthy cause!
