Dave Gould’s toilet is in the building!!!! We can’t wait for tonight, when the World’s Greatest Looist is going to give us an interactive demonstration of toilet percussion techniques!!
We’ve been waiting for Dave to share his Yukon adventures with us ever since his triumphant return from the great white north!! Tonight, we’ll get to hear all about his visits to 6 different communities in his Multi-Media Show and Tell!! You can expect Dave, his toilet, videos, pictures, and… ANTLERS!! If you haven’t seen his blog, the Yukon Gould Rush, you can read up on his travels at http://www.yukongouldrush.blogspot.ca/
Open Jam let us blow off some steam last night. Everyone was still recovering from a myriad of amazing weekend adventures and the music was just the right combination of energetic and mellow to round out everyone’s collective vibes. Revery Eyes, The Human Race and Pete Van Dyk were on hand - making the night feel like a dejavu of the Temper Temper Art Crawl show where all three of these talented musical acts were gracing our stage!We loved Rob Brown and Zachary Aasman’s sets, flabergasted by the jam portion.
Check all the video after the jump!
It’s a perfect day for sitting on the patio, sipping on a fresh cold brew! Try Cool, it’s cheap (at $3.75) and delicious!

Our Espress-Cycle Barista Jo is enjoying a well deserved fresh Spinach Salad with Chickpeas and homemade dressing after a long day serving up delicious coffee on the go at the Ottawa Street Market!
The much anticipated Hero Coffee Bike, (we’ve coined it the “Espress-Cycle”) is finally road ready and making a debut at the Ottawa Street Market tomorrow! You can get a fresh espresso, latte or cappuccino just like it’s made at Homegrown from our biking barista Jo between 9am and 1pm!
You can follow our “Espress-Cycle” updates on twitter @herocoffeebike !!

Holy smokes, batman! Where did the week go?? It’s OPEN JAM time again tonight!! Sign up is at the “same bat time” of 7:30pm with host and drummer extraordinaire Dave Gould. If you’ve got a hunger on, you can fuel up on the Starvin’ Artist rice and beans special, and well have a rad selection of drink specials for all you talented folks!
The hard work of our local farmers is paying off in the Homegrown kitchen today! We’ve got a load of fresh seasonal asparagus, spinach and herbs like freshly picked coriander and baby basil. It all adds up to some mouthwatering soups like our Tuscan White Bean and Spinach soup and Vegan Cream of Asaparagus soup! Another thing worth trying? Our fresh Spinach Salad topped with any of our homemade dressings. Everything tastes better when it’s fresh and in-season!
