Bittered Sling Bistro

A big thanks to Lauren Mote and Chef Johnathan Chovancek of Kale & Nori for hosting the second "Bitter Sling Bistro" event at Legacy Liquor Store. Featuring Cascade's (and soon to be The Union's) own Arthur Wynne, the bartending challenge last night was to create cocktails using Maker's Mark bourbon to pair with the evening's food.

The drinks Arthur prepared started with a cocktail of Makers Mark, fig gastrique, roasted yam puree and prosecco; followed for the main course with: Makers Mark, chamomile simple syrup, thai basil leaves, cilantro, lime and soda water; and finishing off for dessert with Makers Mark, okanagan apple compote with cracked long pepper, apple juice, cigar infused cream, flame spritzed with ceylon cinnamon infused rum.

So, we may be a little biased, but we think Arthur did a brilliant job!

Bitter Sling Bistro is a twice monthly event. Check out their site for info about upcoming events.

Movember at The Cascade Room

The Cascade Room and Public Lounge have teamed up with Main Street Pilsner to put together a team of dashing moustaches to help raise awareness and funds, for prostate cancer in the annual Movember.

The more the merrier on our team, so if you're up for it, join the Mo' Street Pilsners and show how much we all care about this great cause.

The hairier the upper lips the better!
