The temperature may be cold, but there are a lot of events happening this weekend that are making Windsor and its surrounding area a hot place to be. Here are some events we think you should participate in this weekend.
Winter Bites Restaurant Week
We’re in the stretch run for the popular event that is in its tenth year. Participating Winter Bites restaurants are offering up some fantastic value with 3-course menus at discounted prices. Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation as they usually get booked up on weekends during the restaurant week. Winter Bites Restaurant Week ends Sunday night. Visit www.winterbites.ca to view participating restaurants and their menus.
North American International Auto Show
The North American International Auto Show opens to the public this weekend and, while not technically in Windsor, it’s a short tunnel bus ride over the border into Detroit and a favourite activity for a lot of Windsorites to visit. A perfect opportunity to take in a Winter Bites meal before and/or after the show.
Drinks of Walkerville
An interactive experience with plenty of tasting opportunities, the Drinks of Walkerville never disappoints. This experience was named an Ontario Signature Experience and gives guests a hands-on experience through North America’s largest distillery, home to J.P. Wiser’s. This weekend, you can get tickets for $20 off the regular price by using the WINTERBITES18 promo code. Buy your tickets here.
Feasting the Lab
Join the University of Windsor for a unique opportunity to commemorate the opening of the new Incubator Lab, a hybrid laboratory at the intersection of art, science and ecology, located in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Windsor. Feasting the Lab includes special guest Marta De Menezes, live entertainment, beverages and bites from Thyme Kitchen that keep in the theme of bio art. It’s a free event that takes place Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 7:30pm to 10:30pm. Be sure to arrive on time to catch the beginning of the show as we’ve heard it, and the bites, are a must-see!
