WEEKEND ROUNDUP – MARCH 15TH

Posted: March 15, 2019

March Break might be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop – there’s still lots to see and do before everyone’s regular schedules commence again on Monday. Get out, explore, and have fun this weekend. Happy adventuring, friends!

Ancaster
Located in Ancaster’s Village, in a 200-year-old stone building, the  Coach & Lantern  is a true British pub with great food and great beer. Grab a bite to eat here this weekend, and learn the history and folklore of this building.

Burlington
Jesse Cook, master guitarist, known for his intoxicating fusion of world music, is performing at The Burlington Performing Arts  Centre on Sunday, March 17th . Cook has released ten genre-defying albums, garnering eleven JUNO nominations, and one win in 2001 for Free Fall in the World Music and Instrumental categories. Will you be hearing him perform this weekend? Head to Crawford Lake and visit the reconstructed Iroquoian Village to learn how maple syrup was discovered and used by Indigenous People, as you take in an interactive (and edible!) Sweet Water demonstration. Nostalgia is served in the afternoon as staff demonstrate how to make taffy on snow. Try a tasting flight of different grades and types of syrup. Open weekends until April 7th , 2019.

Dundas
Celebrate all that is Irish and green this weekend with live Irish music, Irish food, festivities and of course beer at  Shawn and Ed Brewing Co . Note that there is a cover charge of $5.00 at the door.

Hamilton
Lights, camera, action. This weekend, be sure to check out the newly opened  Westdale Theatre  – a 1935 heritage building – in Westdale, and  Playhouse Cinema  on Sherman Ave, which was believed to have closed its doors in 1913 and is the oldest movie house in Canada. Experience the old world charm of cinema and entertainment, while also supporting your local community.

Gage Park’s tropical new greenhouse is finally opened – well, a soft open, as it will officially open at the end of the month. But now is the time for those eager neighbours, avid gardeners, and locals near and far to take a peek at this 1,300 square foot light-filled space, full of tropical and semi-tropical plants. Visit this weekend for the Spring Tide Bulb Show. Admission is free but donations to Hamilton Food Share are appreciated.

Waterdown
Just outside of this community, you’ll find West Avenue Cider House. Visit this weekend and taste their award winning cider, and up your Instagram game, as this place is rustic-chic swoon worthy.

Open house
Stop by and say hi to Team Smulders’, Brian Gerrard, this Sunday at 25 Park Street E, Dundas for an open house. Move-in ready, this 3+1 bedroom house, plus garage, could be your next dream home!
