Our Year in Review

What a year it has been!

As we enter into the new year, we can’t help but reflect on the past twelve months and everything they brought with them.

We certainly have had some special doin’s at the café, and we are so fortunate to have shared them with you.

In March, our space underwent a small renovation, which saw both changes to the kitchen and front of house. With some serious help from our friends, a bunch of sweat equity, and some imagination, we were able to greatly improve the functioning of the café, setting us up for a productive summer season, and the ability to expand our offerings into supper.

Our first foray into supper service showcased our Head Chef’s passion for Southern Barbecue. Pulled pork, cornbread and shrimp ‘n’ grits were just a few of our tantalizing options, and kept our patrons coming back for more.

One of our favourite events of the year – Enigma – was held in support of Fogo Island Pride, and saw the local artist community band together to raise funds for the newly-established not-for-profit.

In August, we had the great pleasure of hosting Eamon McGrath at the café for a truly exceptional musical performance. If you missed his show, or haven’t yet had a chance to check out his music, we highly recommend heading over to his website immediately.

In fact, many times this year we were graced by the musical offerings of our local talent. Mike and Katie Penton were a crowd favourite, and of course, the band formerly known as ‘The Rubber Boot Band’ got our toes tapping like none other.

We loved having you all in the space for Trivia, and had the best time testing your knowledge and serving up un-ending brain teasers. We equally loved our Movie Matinees, Wing Nights and Take-Home Suppers, and truly felt the magic the night of our Thai Prix Fixe Supper.

Out of everything, we are most proud of our Cheer Drive, an annual initiative to bring holiday cheer to our deserving friends and neighbours.

As with everything we do, we do it for you! You are truly the x-factor that makes Bangbelly what it is, and we couldn’t do it without you.

Thank you to each and every one of you for making this an exceptional year and for your unwavering support and kindness.

Here’s to a happy, productive and eventful New Year!
