Repost from @alderroom - We don’t really feel like going home after service tonight. Come by for cheap wine, loud tunes and food that has nothing to do with the restaurant! Random snack night! 12am-2am.
Super stoked to be cooking at the @vignettesyeg pop-up restaurant tomorrow!

Much needed break.
Well, today is the day. Two and a half years and it's finally here. I cannot express the gratitude to all of my family, my friends and my partners, who I'm so fortunate to have and support me. We've all worked so hard and put so much into this little building. Now the real work begins. We'll do you proud, #yeg.
