Venue Menu: Treat yourself to Toronto-inspired beer with a classic Chicago touch at Goose Island Brewhouse

Starters

Goose Island Beer Company has collaborated with Bier Markt to build Toronto’s premier Goose Island Brewhouse; a Chicago-based craft brewery in Old Town Toronto. This venue is approximately 19 years old and has been revamped into a cozy brewpub on The Esplanade.

The brewhouse is Goose Island Beer Company’s first endeavor into the Canadian brewery business. Premium beer is prepared at the state-of-the-art on-site brewery and is served from 12 taps. As you walk in, the well-lit space features modern wooden decor, complemented by rustic brickwork all throughout the venue. It also features very long bar, behind which sits seven fermentors.

Mains – Features

In the brewhouse, catch a full view of the brewery operations of head brewer Bernard Priest and his team, right from your seat. This casual, yet refined venue space has a capacity of 100 guests mingling and approximately 75 seated. It’s ideal for any social gathering such as a networking event, farewell party, or beer-paired dinner. The brewhouse also offers smaller dedicated sections for groups of 20-75. After your event, take home a Beer Growler (64oz) or Howler (32oz) of a brewed-in-house favourite! Do you have a bigger event? Book the brewhouse and Bier Markt Esplanade for a maximum of 700 guests mingling.

Sides

Enjoy al fresco dining at the Beer Garden. This outdoor space boasts a wall of homegrown hops climbing the surrounding four storeys of exposed brick. It’s an excellent space for a team building event or summer social. While enjoying craft brews paired with from-scratch cuisine, challenge a friend to Giant Jenga ® and Connect-4 ™.

Desserts – The Icing

The food menu was developed by Bier Markt Executive Chef Kevin Maniaci and Chef de Cuisine Shawn Jackson. The menu is seasonal, as the team uses fresh and local ingredients, with dishes designed to pair with the beers on tap.

Canadian Helen Keller Centre honours ROM at award luncheon

The Canadian Helen Keller Centre (CHKC) Award was launched in 2005 to recognize individuals and organizations for their notable contributions to the deaf-blind community in Canada. The event is hosted by–and is a project of–the Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons (CFPDP).

The deaf-blind community is a unique community of individuals with this dual disability. CFPDP aims to help change the way Canadians think about physical disabilities. For this, the CHKC and awards were launched. CHKC is Canada’s first training facility dedicated solely to deaf-blind persons. Programs include necessary everyday skills such as home organization, grooming, personal finance, computer skills, communication skills like sign-language and braille and many more.

On Friday, April 27, the 14th annual luncheon will be held at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. This year, CHKC will honour the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The award will be accepted by Josh Basseches, Director & CEO, ROM and the guest speaker will be Josh Saunders.

From Backstage to the Catwalk : CityEvents Produces ATSC Fashion Show

 

On August 22nd 2017, CityEvents took part in the Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada Trade Show at the International Centre. CityEvents presented the crowd a fun and trendy fashion show to the mix of some already great seminars that take place at the yearly trade show.

The show featured some amazing designers from students out of George Brown, Seneca College, OCAD, Fanshaw and Humber College to some trendy up and coming Canadian designers. Amongst this mix were student designers such as Anastasiya Lyevina who opened the show and set the mood for the day, along with Kennie Lampkin and Sepideh Ghahremani whose designs took the stage by storm.

Some of the featured Canadian designers consisted of Gift Gowns a stylish alternative to those boring hospital gowns that everyone is so used to, Katiya Lifestyle Brand whose designs were comfortable and perfect to wear during your downtime.  

KM Brand who was also featured in the trends lounge that displayed how you can take one outfit and turn it into another. KM designs featured cool zip off clothing pieces that turned short sleeves into long sleeves and pants into shorts in a matter of seconds. Last but not least Julia Grieve’s designs closed the show with her brand PreLoved and showed off some great sustainable pieces that could be added to any fashion lovers wardrobe for this up and coming fall and winter seasons.

The show also featured some of the amazing designs from the exhibitors that were already on the trade show floor from Bangledesh, China and India.  This show provided the public the option to stop by the booths and check out designs that were being featured in the show.

With a professional stage, awesome music and great lighting no wonder people were stopping by to take pictures as the models strutted everything from outerwear to formal wear and designs for every season.

CityEvents was pleased to take part in the production for this show by recruiting designers from all over. The experience of marketing and producing the show was a joy to the team. Thank you to all the schools, models, designers and supporters who came out to help and check out the show.
