This zesty and hearty salad totally hits the spot with just the right combo of fresh veggies and greens, cheese, grass fed beef and our organic salsa! We like it when things are crunchy, healthy AND filling.
It’s Monday night, and while we don’t usually bust out a live show at the very start of the week, we’re switching up the status quo tonight with SPEEDY ORTIZ (coming all the way from Northampton, Mass)! Adam Bentley and The Ednas are opening, and the whole thing gets started at 9pm.

Only a few weeks left to see the beautiful and inspiring Serbian Art Exhibition at Homegrown Hamilton! Eight amazing artists have come together for the exhibit, which will hang until May 9th 2013.
Our gluten free Lemon Loaf is the perfect snack companion to a cup of Ethiopian Sidamo medium roast!
We’ve got these refreshing GRB bottles stocked up for tonight! Try our Russian Gun Imperial Stout for an extra flavour experience.
The Butter-Meister! Jäger and Butter Ripple Schnapps gettin’ it on in one shot. On special for tonight’s Maylee Todd show!
Saturday night calls for a plate of the Homegrown Veggie Nachos! Fresh peppers, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, served with a side of organic salsa and sour cream. Yes, you can add vegan cheese or chicken if that’s your style, too!
Oh boy, tonight is going to be packed! Maylee Todd is putting on a killer show with The Big Ups and special guest DJ Donna Lovejoy. Curious? Maylee is a dynamic and multi-faceted artist, based in Toronto. Her creativity derives its inspiration from a wide range of artistic disciplines: songwriting, production, film, performance art, and design. Maylee’s music combines organic and electronic forms, including elements of boogie, bossa, space funk, psychedelia and soul. She’s shared the stage with the likes of Janelle Monae, Lee Fields, Aloe Blacc, Little Dragon, and The Budos Band, just to name a few. Advance tickets are going for $10 and you can snatch ‘em up at Homegrown or The Brain! See you tonight!
Before tonight’s live music, we had a chunk of time aside to recognize the person who inspired the Hamilton Independent Media Awards - the one and only Maggie Hughes.
Friends and colleagues, including Amanda Stewart, Matt Jelly, James Tenant, Kevin MacKay and Mike Hampson, just to name a few, shared a portrait of a woman who was unfailing in the face of her illness.
Maggie’s legacy is one of a strong independent journalist who never quit reporting on topics like worker’s rights, issues concerning poverty and the environment. She was well loved and respected.
She maybe never knew what impact she carried, but so many people did - and that’s what the awards will be about next spring, recognizing our independent journalists for all their contributions to the community. Without independent media we would not be a healthy society. We need different voices.
Speaking of voices, we had a lineup of musicians who were also passionate about the work Maggie was doing, and gave us all a concert after the reception. Big thanks to
Raphael Smith Keelan, The Safety Collective and Steve Sinnicks for making the night a wonderful listening experience. All the video after the jump!
