Hi everyone,

We just wanted to let you know that we will be closed for Thanksgiving on Sunday and Monday this week.

We wish everyone the best for the Holiday long weekend, and hope you will be enjoying some local food and drink with family and friends!

We also wanted to let you know about a few things coming up in the next little while:

Saturday, Oct. 17 – Print Preview: Family

We’re opening at 2pm for a special fundraising event. Join poets and storytellers in Antigonish for an afternoon of readings and spoken word on the theme of Family. Suggested donation $10 with all funds raised going to Syria-Antigonish Families Embrace – SAFE Society. SAFE’s goal is to sponsor a displaced Syrian refugee family to resettle in the Antigonish area. Kids are welcome at this event!

Side note:

Sat. Oct. 24, Bethany – Crowdis Bridge & Colin Grant

We’re helping to organize another SAFE Fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 24, 7pm, at the Assembly Hall in Bethany Motherhouse. Come see bluegrass and celtic music in one of the loveliest rooms in Antigonish. Tickets are $20 ($10 for students/unwaged) and will be available soon at The Townhouse and Lyghtesome Gallery!

Tuesday, Oct. 20 – Mary Beth Carty & Shannon Quinn, 9pm, $10

Mary Beth, whom most of you will know and love, brings us her new friend, Shannon Quinn – a fiddler and vocalist whose exploits include being featured in performances with The Chieftains and Cirque de Soleil. The pair of super-talented multi-instrumentalists will be playing a mix of original and traditional/folk/celtic/eclectic music.

Tuesday, Nov. 10 – Tyler Messick/The Museum Pieces, 9pm, $10

Tyler Messick and his band are back after a 10 yr hiatus which saw him touring as a guitar tech with one of the biggest bands in the world (Arcade Fire). “Messick’s influences range from regional heroes like Joel Plaskett and Stan Rogers to the “Pentangle British folk stuff” of Bert Jansch, Mic Jones and Richard Thompson and especially country & gospel king, George Jones.” – from a recent Coast article

Saturday, Nov. 21 – Morgan Davis, 9pm, $10
Detroit-born, Nova Scotia based blues great Morgan Davis returns!

Menu Change – Bring back the mash!

Yes – we are changing up the menu for the fall and winter season! We’re just starting the process and hope to change things up in a few weeks time! We’re still getting in beautiful tomatoes and basil though, so its hard to let go of summer…
