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!
The Twisted veggie or grass fed beef Burger comes topped with Homeslaw and onion jam, served with a side of these very addictive Kettle Chips!
Come in and grab a latte on this chilly afternoon and get a free Temper Temper button while they last!!
TONIGHT! Come check out the Temper Temper Art Exhibit on your Art Crawl adventures! Lauren Olson’s monsters and creatures are eery, cheery and a pretty wild trip. Plus, there’s live music all night - the rainbow-freaking-connection of rock with Revery Eyes, Father Figure, The Human Race and Pete Van Dyk & The Second Hand Band!!
We’re having the most splendid evening at this all ages Autism Centre Benefit fundraiser and concert! We snapped a bunch of photographs of the action, and we’ll keep updating as the event carries on! So far, we’ve been treated to performances by the Celebration Army, and Till The Morning Comes, Glenn MacDonald and Matthew Dezoete!
Happy Birthday to Homegrown owner Mike Pattison! He’s one of the hardest workers anyone’s ever known and we’re glad he was born on this day… 21 years ago… Righhhhht! (Wink wink wink!) <3
This Egg, Cheddar and Tomato sandwich (available on bread or a bagel) paired with this fresh Greek Salad totally makes our mouths water!
This is the very first week without Open Jam former co-host, Wally London. He had his last night hosting last week! Thank you for everything Wally! For those who didn’t know, Wally was also the host of the former Sky Dragon / Homegrown open mic night, The Seen. Your dedication has been outstanding, buddy. We will miss you! (Wally got a big promotion so he doesn’t have time to host all these Open Jam shenanigans anymore!) :)
Without too much long winded pre-amble, here’s all the video from tonight and last week’s jam when Dave returned from the Yukon!
Both last week’s video and this week’s are all after the jump. Excuse? Our Social Media coordinator Lauren is the featured artist for the May 10th Art Crawl show, and she’s been busy painting stuff.
Check it all, after the jump!
