The culinary and country collabs of the Blue Jay Café pop-up are on from November 20-23.
Think hearty food, soothing country tunes and a couple of cocktails: it’s a recipe for Calgary-style comfort. That’s the Blue Jay Cafe. This collaboration between Eat North and Calgary Country is a songwriter circle series featuring comfort food, spirits, and 32 Canadian artists from across Western Canada. It’s popping up in Kensington this weekend, and you’re going to want to make room in your calendar (and stomach) to take in every note.
On the menu are holiday twists on classic comfort foods (think “Christmas ham” club sandwiches and “turkey dinner” hot dogs) and festive beverages including spiked hot apple cider and Jack Daniels whisky hot chocolate. Each songwriter circle contains two pairs of artists and only 54 audience membersit’s the intimate, cozy, delicious experience you’ve been waiting for.
