The Carleton @ Imbibe 2023

A True Cocktail Event! Head out on the town and join The Carleton for a legendary evening at Imbibe 2023. Nova Scotia’s best mixologists representing over 20 restaurants/bars and the NSLC gather for one night only to create perfectly crafted, sample size cocktails made just for you. Snacks and DJ included!

This event gets underway at 7:00 pm Wednesday, April 19th, 2022, at the Light House Arts Centre, 1800 Argyle Street (Trade Centre Office Tower in downtown Halifax).  For tickets, visit:

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!
