This happy “hour” is technically almost three days long, but we’re not complaining (and we’ve lost basically all concept of time anyway). Homer St. Cafe’s dine-in happy hour now lasts from Sunday afternoon until closing Tuesday, and includes all wines and daily food specials (think charcuterie, maple glazed pork belly and steak tartare) for 25% off. And, of course, they’ve got a takeout menu, too.
Mount Pleasant’s Little Mountain Shop closed in June due to COVID-19, but they’re sneaking back in business for the holidays. They join the Polygon Gallery’s holiday shop this week. Expect locally made goods highlighting women-led vendors—this is how to Christmas shop in 2020.
Elevate your takeout game (or maybe treat someone special to an elegant spread) with Faubourg Bakery’s new Christmas afternoon tea offering. A $70 order gets you tea for two with your choice of 20 savoury or sweet items, including smoked salmon and cream cheese croissants, chicken salad choux, candy cane macarons, and raspberry chocolate opera cake.
The show goes on online at Upintheair Theatre, and this week four new works are streaming for audiences everywhere. On the lineup is House of Rice (pictured above), Hunters, Tricksters & Mystics, Popcorn Galaxies and rice & beans theatre, each with a 15-20 minute sci-fi show that explores what the future holds for us. Spoilers: there’s aliens.
