We had a blast this past weekend at Steel Rails 2016. The event was, for the first time, not on a train, but instead emulated the train feel with a series of rented shipping containers plonked down around a factory, which all contained art of all forms – a food/celebrity pun series of printed art, live performances both acrobatic and acoustic, and a tarot reader were among some of the attractions.
We pumped out 600 sandwiches, most of which contained a delicious batch of braised pork shoulder and a house made barbecue sauce. We’ll likely have these little babies on our menu soon. We’re looking forward to Steel Rails 2017, whether we provide delicious food or just attend the event ourselves.
We’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.

We’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.
We’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.
