Fine food should know no budget!
In an attempt to prove that Parkdale can foster foodies of all income levels, PCHC is challenging chefs from Parts & Labour, Barque, and Local Kitchen to create an affordable and tasty meal for a family of four on a budget of $10 or less. To up the ante, all food, spices and seasonings must be purchase in Parkdale and can only be prepared using toaster ovens, hot plates, microwaves and kettles.
Great challenge, great message, great food. What more could you ask for?
Guess what? Some of our staff used to be in a really cool band called Mother Tongue and they’re reuniting to play at the 11th Annual Benefit Bash for WELNepal Friday September 21, 2012 at The Academy of Spherical Arts.
From left to right, the band is represented by Carlo Cesta, Chip Yarwood (Gladstone AV Manager/Music Director), Celina Carroll (Gladstone Human Resources), Yared Tesfaye, Conny Nowe (Gladstone AV Tech), Maryem Hassan and Rachel Melas.
Musical influences from around the globe are fused into the inspired sounds of the band Mother Tongue, The recipients of “Music Africa” awards as “Best Pan African Band” in 1994 and “Best African Band” in 1995, nominated for a Juno Award in 1994 for their album Enat. Get ready to dance to the infectious rhythms of Mother Tongue as this WELNepal reunion performance sees the band ready to “Stir the Pot” once again.
WELNepal’s overreaching goal is to provide women with the best tools for self-improvement, literacy and education. Their literacy training consists of 14 months of classes held two hours a day, six days a week for up to 30 women of all ages. To date, they’ve given literacy training more than 3,500 women.
Having organized the music for the WELNepal fundraiser over the past several years, Celina Caroll even has a women’s literacy class in Nepal named after her!
Check out Mother Tongue at the 11th Annual Benefit Bash for WELNepal Friday September 21, 2012 at The Academy of Spherical Arts in Liberty Village and really see what stuff our staff is up to.
Thanks to everyone who came out last night for our first ever and best ever Gladstone TV Trivia Night. With a back to school focus on Saved By The Bell and Degrassi Jr. High we were beyond impressed by the caliber of audience participation and trivial TV knowledge. A gold star goes out to the grand prize and prestige winners: Hot Sundae who beat out the competition with a stunning A++ score.
It was a fun/funny filled night with special back to school prize snacks, interpretive “Sprain” dancing and hardly any Degrassi-style bullying.
Tune in next month on Oct 2nd for a Friends trivia battle. That’s right, the next one is all about your favorite Friends, Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe and Chandler Bing (plus all your fave side characters!) and it will be challenging, so brush up friends.
Named The Gladstone Classic for a reason, room 414 uses a unique toile wallpaper to incorporate narratives of the hotel, the guests, workers and patrons who have enlivened the Gladstone over its rich recent history. Designed by Day Millman and resident Gladstone artist Bruno Billio.
Working with images from the archives, and in consultation with the staff, this room exudes classic Gladstone.
