Customer Appreciation Day is coming up on Saturday, November 29th, 2014!
That's right! We are celebrating 165 years at the corner of York and ByWard Market! Join us from 4pm to 2am for funtivities out the wazoo! All in all, it’s a day where we try and celebrate our amazing customers and biggest fans! We want to say “Thank you” by giving back to our regulars, our neighbors, and our community. We’ve sourced local prizes and gifts, and are using our power of social media to express our love of Ottawa and the ByWard Market – our home for the last 165 years.
As with every Saturday, Lucky Ron will grace the stage at 4pm. Later on, as a special treat, the Billy MacInnis Trio from P.E.I. will be swinging by for a late night show at 9pm. Billy toured with the late Stompin’ Tom throughout his career and his fiddling is a definite must see! Click HERE for a sneak peak!
In addition to live music, we have over 100 prizes to give away! Some we will be handing out, just as souvenirs of the day. Door prizes will be given out before, during, and after all the live music performances, and you must be present to win! On your way in, you’ll get one ticket. If you bring an item to donate to the Ottawa Food Bank, you’ll get one ticket for each item you bring. There will also be many a chance to win more tickets throughout the day! We have a couple larger prizes up for grabs – you’ll be able to purchase or win ballots, and all proceeds go as a donation to the Ottawa Food Bank! I’ll draw for these around midnight, but you don’t have to be present – winners will be contacted.
And finally, we some larger items up for auction. All the money raised from these will benefit the Ottawa Food Bank and we hope to raise at least $500 from the auction alone! HINT: check out our Facebook event page for pictures and posts of what is up for grabs!
Throughout the evening, we will come around with food and cupcakes to help the celebration along! There may be a free beer or two (or three) handed out as well!
Join us! We’d love to say “Thank You” to you in person. See you at the Laff!
