Beer Of The Month

Shinicked Stout

5.2% ABV, 19 IBU, Muskoka Brewery

Shinnicked Stout is named after a slang word for “that numbing, gasp-for-breath feeling you get when you plunge into a Muskoka lake for a chilly late-night dip in the fall or walk outside on a -20 winter day.” It is a rich, velvety beer brewed in collaboration with local coffee company Muskoka Roastery, using their signature Lumberjack coffee. Shinnicked is infused with flavours of dark chocolate and hints of coffee, toffee and dried fruit.

FUNked Up Fridays

Every Friday night at 10:30 PM, $10 Suggested Contribution

It's a brand new year and we are giving our live music program a reboot with a series of Friday night concerts featuring a rotating list of fun and funky bands. 

January 27, Requiem MMXVI: Bowie, Prince, Cohen, Frey... from Drei Peters & Special Guests

2016 was a hard year for the music community having lost many respected artists to death. One of our regular Friday bands, Drei Peters will play tribute to these fallen icons with a special performance.

Three mainstays on the Toronto music scene share the same surname and the passion for a good times soundtrack.

Peter Graham: Plays with Steely Dan tribute, Pretzel Logic. Has worked with Martha Reeves, David Foster and Arthur Brown in music. And Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington, Liam Neeson and Second City as an actor. 

Peter Mueller: Played with Tom Cochrane, Alan Frew, Ann Murray and Tom Jones. The on-screen guitarist on the Canadian Idol show for 6 years. Prolific writer of instrumental music for various music libraries. 

Peter Nunn: Currently the keyboardist with the touring band Honeymoon Suite. Has worked with the Kings, Alan Frew and Andy Kim. Appears on numerous recordings.

February 3, Metronome Chomsky

Metronome Chomsky is a seven piece Motown/Soul band specializing in funky good times! Playing around the GTA and beyond for the past several years they have garnered a reputation as a perfect band to keep the dance floor moving and smiles on the faces of the less energetic onlookers. Their set leans heavily on the classics of the horn driven Motown era and 60s soul tunes as well as a few reworkings of newer pop songs and the occasional 90s Hip Hop track. Fans of that era of music (everyone?) will delight in MC’s renditions of their favourites as well as some deeper cuts slathered with punchy horns and big vocal harmonies.
