Wednesday Food + Drink Roundup
▪️Broadhead Beer has released Cryo Hop Hazy IPA, packed with citra hops that fill the air with citrus fruit vibes. Perfect for humid days like today. $4.50 for 473ml can.
▪️Merry Dairy wrote a book! Great Scoops: Recipes from a Neighbourhood Ice Cream Shop will be available for preorder in December, and in our hands in May 2022. Meanwhile, to get your hands on some fresh Merry Dairy ice cream today, head to the postal code pop ups in K2H (George Brancato Park), K2L (Beaton Park) and K2K (Walden Park). We want salted caramel topping on ours!
▪️Grace in the Kitchen is moving to larger premises at Kanata Centrum in November. The kitchen and dining supply store carries pretty much every knife and gadget you need for a hard working kitchen, as well as lovely table linens and other gift ideas. They also carry food items imported from the UK, which is important news for those who favour a dark chocolate HobNob or three with their cup o’ tea. The new shop opens in November, but in the meantime you can shop online and at the current location 442 Hazeldean Rd.
▪️Beyond the Pale brewery is the setting for the Brewery Comedy Nights on Thursday August 26th. Mike Rita and Nick Burden will burn up the stage while you enjoy cold beer and a hearty smoked meat menu. For your chance to win one of three two packs of tickets, head to Brewery Comedy Nights’ Insta.
▪️The Moon Room is on the hunt for new team members. If you love serving gorgeous cocktails and small plates under magical skies, this could be the job you’ve been waiting to apply for. Drop your resumé off at 442 Preston St.
▪️This is taking Christmas prep very seriously indeed: Aux Délices Bakery is now taking orders for the 24 Days of Cookies advent calendar. The pre-sale gives you $10 off the regular price of $80 so get ordering but it’s only on until the end of August.
▪️Amore Gelato in the Byward Market is running a sweet giveaway. Up for grabs: one $100 gift card to Amore Gelato, and four $50 gift cards, which will certainly buy a substantial amount of gelato or vegan Sorbetto.
▪️The Citizen thinks the pizzas from Giulia are pricey but good
▪️Sweet N’ Nice has launched a subcription service for its Caribbean influenced ice-cream.
▪️Ottawa has a choice of two places to get a Croffle, a combination waffle/croissant.
▪️The Kitties are all right. After putting a call out for donations, the Feline Café on Wellington can stay in business.
