Food + Drink Update
▪️Having completed its second annual Knowing Our Neighbours survey, Parkdale Food Centre has declared today the Right to Food Day. The aim of the campaign is to draw awareness to the inability of their clients to access healthy food. There will be a service led by Elder Vince Kicknosway and live music from Juno award winner Lynn Miles, at the Right to Food Day event in Parkdale Park, coinciding with Parkdale Night Market. Today from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at 366 Parkdale Ave.
In other Parkdale Food Centre news, Maker House has announced that they will be donating 2% of their sales from now through December to the organization. That’s another great reason to do your Christmas shopping at Maker House, 987 Wellington St. W.
▪️Tonight's The Introduction to: Vinyl Cutting workshop from Square Lemon will be happening again, so don't worry if you can't make it tonight. $48.76 is all it takes to learn to set up the cutter, import the design, cut the design on vinyl, and apply the design.
▪️A new festive season tradition is born: Dairy Distillery has released a lactose-free Vodkow Eggnog Cream Liquor. Your boozy Christmas drinks sesh will now be powered by a local brand. $29.95 per bottle.
▪️The Nita Beer Craft Holiday Beer Calendar is now on sale. $152 includes 22 hard-to-find beers.
▪️It’s last call to order the Thanksgiving Take-home dinner for two from Maker Feed Co. in the East End.

Old Montréal Rd, Cumberland.
▪️Curated by Beckta is back, this time with a Thanksgiving Dinner for Two Food & Wine package. The roast turkey is accompanied by pea and a sweet potato tart, and your choice of expertly paired wines. A YouTube vid and instructions complete the package. $135.
▪️You might not buy your turkey dinner from Pelican Seafood Market & Grill but you could pickup some snacks, sides and party platters to offer your festive meal guests. Imagine this: you, in your festive apron or smoking jacket, passing around oysters, lobster and shrimp rolls, and crab pops.
▪️A new bakery has opened in Cobden, Sour Jo's bakery, and they cannot keep their sourdough bread in stock.
▪️Peter Hum at the Citizen loves the brown 70s vibe at Retro Gusto. Owned by the Farinella pizza guys, Retro Gusto doesn't offer Uber or SkipTheDishes. You want takeaway, you have to phone.
