The celebration begins at 5pm and will last through to midnight. Rome’s birthday is officially April 21 every year and since we’re located in Windsor’s Via Italia, we’re going to throw a birthday party celebrating the Eternal City! The 2776th birthday party is free to attend.

Year Two of Masters of the Brewniverse is fast approaching and it’s looking to be bigger and better than last year.
Masters of the Brewniverse is a one day event that encourages friendly competition of one-off beers that are exclusive to the event, giving breweries the opportunity to showcase their creativity and win bragging rights.
There will be two awards handed out: People’s Choice and the Master of the Brewniverse which will be decided by a panel of judges.
Session One tickets are $47 and Session Two tickets are $50. Each ticket includes a branded Masters of the Brewniverse tasting glass and 80oz of beer. That’s 80oz of beer and for an event themed after an 80’s cartoon that just seemed appropriate.
Naturally, we’ll be playing the best hits from the 80’s throughout the event and, of course, 80s attire is entirely optional but welcomed and encouraged. Tickets are limited, so make sure to get yours ASAP
Cinco De Mayo – May 4-7
Who doesn’t love a celebration that includes tequila and tacos? Not us! From May 4-7, we’ll be hosting a weekend party for Cinco de Mayo that will include Mexican food and drink specials, live music, dancing, and more! Come celebrate Cinco de Mayo at WindsorEats‘ location at 400 Erie St. E. in Windsor, Ontario.
Our bar will also be pumping out classic cocktails like our popular margaritas and mojitos all day and night, all weekend long.
