Looking for something to do this month? WindsorEats has a handful of events that might get students over their mourning of the start of school and parents celebrating its arrival.
Friday Night Lights
Friday, September 4, 2015
Putting it simply, Friday Night Lights is a pub and grub crawl on two wheels throughout the city of Windsor. We encourage guests to deck out their bikes in bright lights to light up the night and enjoy the company of good folks and the flavours of three great establishments.
Our September 4 ride will begin at Willistead Park and visit Tiki Sushi, The Manchester and another location to be determined.
Riders meet at 7:30pm and the ride departs at 8:00pm.
Drinks of Walkerville
Saturday, September 5, 2015
Come see for yourself why the Drinks of Walkerville was chosen as an Ontario Signature Experience!
Windsor has a vibrant and colourful history along an international border that many have no knowledge of. With a resurgence of interest in the Canadian Club brand through hit television programs Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire, guests can learn all about a history of smuggling and gangsters during prohibition from a uniquely Canadian perspective.
Guests jaunt through historic Old Walkerville, the town that Canadian Club built, and learn about its architecture as well as some well known and not so well known tales and folklore associated with the neighbourhood, including its rich rum running history and visits by Al Capone. You can even touch a bullet hole purported to have been shot by Al himself.
You’ll walk through the hallways of the Canadian Club Brand Centre, home of Canadian Club whiskey, which was made popular again through acclaimed television programs Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire,and be brought through the history and brewing process of Walkerville Brewery. All this before finishing off the tour discovering the street art at The Willistead Restaurant.
Tickets are $50 per person and well worth it.
