Silent book club tonight at 7:30! Bring a book and enjoy some quiet reading time among like-minded book lovers

Tuesday, April 2nd @ 7:30pm: our first ever silent book club! Bring a book (any book!) and read quietly for an hour.
PS - it’s still a bar, so anyone not reading is still welcome [email protected] out for cocktails as per usual!) 📚🥃

Yay - the sun is shining and it finally feels like spring! Come celebrate with a cocktail...

I created this cocktail ‘Bel Ami’ for the Giffard West Cup on Monday night. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, so we’re offering it as a special feature tonight. C’mon by if you’d like to try it! #gwc2019 #pineapple @giffardcanada

Tonight! Bring in a book you loved and take home one of someone else’s favourites! #bookexchange
