Wednesday Food + Drink
▪️Shifter magazine has published their Top Five Afro-Caribbean restaurants in Ottawa. (Number one, Soleil Des Iles)
▪️People in Ottawa are the second most-likely in Canada to say 'Thank You' to their food delivery drivers. People in Gatineau are the sixth biggest tippers but ninth pickiest in special orders. Ottawa did not make the top-10 for healthy food ordering cities. So says Uber Eats, anyway. [Cravings Report]
▪️Smiths Falls’ 4 Degrees Brewing has posted its new hours: Wednesday to Sunday 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Head there for a great selection of beer, merch, and even Mighty Valley fair-trade coffee.
▪️Lots of news out of Flora Hall this week: first, we hear that the chef is about to mix things up with a new menu; also, we’ve spotted a gorgeous Christmas prezzie in their merch lineup that will thrill coffee and beer lovers. It’s a Flora Hall “Coffee” mug! It’s not only stylish but it’s got a cheeky message on the side (“Could be Beer”). $19.78
▪️Here’s a chance to win round trip tickets for two anywhere Porter Airlines flies: it’s the Beau’s Porter Getaway Contest. Unique entry codes are located in specially marked six packs of Beau’s Lug Tread beer.
▪️Stray Dog Brewing is offering #movember participants a little extra incentive: For every $350 you raise, you can redeem a a 14oz beer or flight, and a brewery t-shirt. All you have to do is send the brewery your Movember page details so they can track your progress.
▪️Spark Beer Night Markets will bring local makers and beer fans together for festive shopping events on Friday November 19th and Friday November 26th, from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. The events will unfold in the back “Sparking” lot at 702 Somerset St W.
▪️The menu’s been updated at Carp’s Ridge Rock Brewing, so if you’re headed out for a day trip take your appetite. Personally, we would keep it hearty with a Winter Squash Salad followed by a Skor cheesecake, but that’s just us.
