The 100-year-old company celebrates the first year anniversary of its Armoury District showroom.

Last night, Ames Tile and Stone invited designers, clients and neighbours to a backyard celebration. Ames may be a century-old company (they€™ve been around since 1912), but today marks the one-year anniversary of their new showroom, located in Vancouver’s Armoury District.Boy With a Knife Catering (you may remember Chef Brandon Dac from our How to Butcher a Chicken in 5 Minutes or Less video) took care of the food, serving hor d’oeuvres alongside a fine selection of wine and pints from Strange Fellows Brewing.

Ames Tile and Stone’s West 2nd location is in Vancouver’s Armoury District.

Boy With a Knife Catering was serving delicious food€”like these crispy buffalo chicken sliders€”throughout the evening.
