Steps for Kids 2016

Steps for KidsWe’re proud to be participating again this year in Lutherwood’s Steps for Kids, a fundraiser for children’s mental health. It’s a walk/run where teams take pledges benefiting the Lutherwood Children’s Mental Health Centre. The event takes place on May 1st of this year. We’ll be bringing some grilled veggie wraps and chicken caesar wraps to feed participants and volunteers.

Artilicious 2016

ArtiliciousWe are proud to be participating in this year’s first ever Artilicious. We don’t know too much about the event, but it’s taking shape as sort of a food-meets-craft show featuring local food vendors and artisans. We’ll be manning a booth knocking out some bite-size versions of our brown butter squash sandwich. The event is at the Marketplace in the Kitchener Market, our home turf, and takes place on March 10th, world kidney day, which is no coincidence as ticket sales are in support of the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Check out the event page here.

Happy New Year

FireworksWe came back from the holidays for Saturday the 2nd, and will be back in full operation this week coming. Our new menu for January – February will be posted and effective this week. We’re looking forward to meeting some customers new and old this year and working on expanding our growing lunchtime delivery business. Wishing you all the best in 2016!

Film and Food

The Three AmigosWe’re kicking off a partnership with Apollo Cinema whereupon we’re going to be collectively inventing and serving food that fits a movie theme. The first such event will be on May 24th entitled “Breakfast of Champions with the Three Amigos.” Apollo will be showing the classic 1980′s comedy starring Chevy Chase, Martin Short and Steve Martin. We’ll be serving up some delicious egg burritos at the cinema for you to try and eat at your seat between bouts of hilarity. Scrambled farm eggs, house cured bacon, sautéed peppers and onions and a lightly spicy mayonnaise in a toasted 10″ tortilla. We’re excited to come up with more ideas for film tie-in food and make this recurring event a winner! Check out the ticket page for the inaugural event.

Steps for Kids

Lutherwood Steps for KidsWe’re proud to be sponsoring Lutherwood’s annual Steps for Kids this summer on May 3rd. The walk is a 3-5 km walk through scenic North Waterloo, starting and ending at the Lutherwood Children’s Mental Health Centre, for which participants are fundraising. We’ll be on-site at the event, grilling up wraps made from our ever-changing menu (TBA by the way) and handing them out to participants.

Cakes for House of Friendship

In Support of HofF logoWe’re baking cakes and donating half of the proceeds to House of Friendship Kitchener, our neighbours on Charles Street. We’re taking pre-orders at our stand, or by e-mail. You choose your type of cake – spiced apple, carrot raisin, or chocolate chip BB Cakes- and your pick-up date, and we’ll bake cakes for you at $8 tax incl. each, $4 of which goes to HOF. We’re thinking of it as sort of a pre-ordered holiday bake sale. We’l be selling cakes this way into February so that we can donate then, so think of this option into the new year as well if you’re interested!

Funds Raised!

Nuclear ThroneThanks to your generous donations, we raised $250 for Children’s Health Foundation in London, Ontario. We took part in a fundraising campaign called “Extra Life” where we marathon-played Vlambeer’s “Nuclear Throne” for a total of 24 hours (non-consecutive, we’re not that hardcore!) Many mutant lives were lost, many a golden weapon dropped, and many inter-dimensional police raids went horribly wrong. We’re still not bored of the game – a break is however definitely in order.

Shop like a Chef

ShoplikeChefNick will be conducting a little shopping tutorial at the Kitchener Market on Saturday, October 4th with some tips and tricks about buying produce, meats and dry goods. Expect some insight into getting more bang for your buck, picking out primo vegetables, and generally broadening your comfort zone with preparing food. We’re wrapping up the tour with a lunch at Breadbaron sponsored by the Downtown Kitchener BIA!

Craftoberfest 2014

craftoberfest-logoWe’re looking forward to sampling some local craft brews on Saturday at the #craftoberfest launch party while we sling some fresh goodies from a little pop-up in Imbibe’s kitchen. We’re going to be bringing reubens, chicken caesar, and last but not leek sandwiches for the vegetarians. We’ll also be putting some nachos in the convection oven to order topped with braised beef, chopped salsa and of course cheese!

Thanks Imbibe for hosting such an awesome event and including us, and happy 2nd birthday!
