What’s an evening without music? It’s the perfect compliment to good food and drink. Which is why every Sunday at 7 pm, Pourhouse hosts the rotating sounds of Russell Sholberg, Gord Whyte, or Paul Dohrty, and the popular singer, crooner, and guitar player Curtis Parry. The Dire Wolves play now and again, filling up the restaurant with fans and their bluegrass tunes. They even play the washboard!
We hopefully predict that the bright, warm days are going to last well into October (dare we say November?). Either way, summer is definitely not over quite yet, which means it’s always the right time to try a new refreshing cocktail. Two favorites to try: the “Don’t Mind If I Do”, a beautiful blend of Hendrix Gin, limejuice, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, egg white and celery bitters. If gin isn’t to your taste, the “Old Cuban” is a warming glass of Havana 7-year aged rum, mint, limejuice, angostura bitters, and sparkling wine.
The well-known and respected Chef Jean-Christophe Poirier has joined up with Pourhouse this summer and menu changes followed as he implements his own touch. We can now look forward to in-house baked bread to go along with their comfort sandwiches of meatloaf, a tuna melt, brisket, pulled pork, and vegetarian mushroom.
And lastly comes the newest news to print. Coming up this fall, Pourhouse is starting a new series “Kitchen Table Family Dinners”. The name says it all – spend an evening at a private table in Pourhouse’s kitchen, while talented staff prepares platters and bowls to share with your party. How do pre-dinner nibbles, followed by a roast with mashed potatoes, peas, corn, gravy and then perhaps a freshly baked apple pie with some homemade ice cream sound to you?
