Pop-Up Picnic – June 29, 2016

This year we’re doing Pop-Up Picnics EVERY WEEK this summer! This week’s location is the McDougall Centre grounds and the theme is “Sinatra in the Park”

Don’t miss this clam-bake for an extravaganza of Sinatra in the Park! With Johnny Summers and his 8 piece “Little Big Band” performing Frank Sinatra hits, you’ll want to Come Fly Me while singing WOW-EE WOW WOW as Sinatra would say. Bring your lunch, and enjoy entertainment in the park, as well as vendors, and lawn games like ring toss, horseshoes and giant jenga!

Pop-Up Piano – June 30, 2016

The Street Piano Series continues with more duets on the Woodlands piano on the corner of 6th ave and 3rd street SW. Laura Reid and Mark Limacher will be performing a violin and piano duet.

This will be the last of the piano duet performances, and in July there will be solo performances on Tuesdays and Thursdays all month long (noon to 1pm). For more info and to see the whole line-up, visit our website.


Downtown Libations – June 29, 2016

We’ve partnered with some of Downtown Calgary’s finest to make happy hour, even happier on the last Wednesday of each month! This month we’ll be at the 4th Avenue Keg Steakhouse for a patio party. Join us from 4 to 6 pm, no RSVP or reservation required. Just mention Downtown Libations to the host when arriving.

The 4th Avenue Keg cocktail hour menu offers your Keg favourites at a price that’s almost as great as the items! $4 Beers and $5 Caesars, Margaritas and Mojitos … just to name a few. View the full cocktail hour menu here: http://ow.ly/jYuK300U23F
