The Keg Gives Back

October15

I do not live a spontaneous life, but there are occasions when spur of the moment decisions can be made and it is a wonderful feeling. This past Friday night I was invited to a “wet run” of the newly refurbished St. James Keg and although I knew that Sister #3 could accompany me, there were two more invites available and I did not want to let the opportunity go unredeemed.

So I invited along two young Moms who really needed a break and a treat (especially when it meant that their spouses managed bed time at home for the little ones).

We shared a couple of appetizers including this succulent Shrimp Cocktail.

The food was perfect with the teeny exception of the butter for the lobster tail which was not clarified.

The steaks and prime rib were tender and precisely cooked and the sides and additional courses gave me the opportunity to try a couple of things that I do not tend to gravitate to on The Keg’s extensive menu.

We ended our evening with 4 spoons and an Apple Crumble.

The service by petite Sam (female) was more than attentive and it would be an understatement to say that a good time was had by all.

Equally important to me and this particular circle of friends was that the token amount of money spent to be a part of the evening was being funneled through the Keg Spirit Foundation to the Rehabilitation Centre for Children.  Our family has directly benefited by their equipment loans and modifications of adapted devices.  Therefore, we were happy to top up the $5 per dinner with a generous donation.

Being able to give back when you are so enjoying your evening, your life and your blessings, is such a pleasure.  The Keg makes it easy every year when they offer up a special menu that provides a built in contribution to their Keg Spirit Foundation.  A sneak peak at this years offerings include Herb Roasted Chicken, Prime Rib and Snow Crab, Sirloin with Jumbo Shrimp & Scallop and Baked Halibut.  I have to get back there soon…

Since 2001 the Keg Spirit Foundation has contributed more than $1 million to Big Brothers Big Sisters at both national and local levels.  Other national charities that have been supported include Free the Children (I will be  attending “We Day” again, later this month) and the Ladybug Foundation program, initiated by Winnipeg’s own Hannah Taylor.

I am looking forward to seeing what the final tally for the evening will be but in the mean time, the opportunity for a fun and relaxing night out with the girls-priceless.

Love-that is all.
