Happy 150th Manitoba! 

I know this isn’t how we all expected to be celebrating 150 years, but in some ways, the pandemic is showing exactly why we should be proud to be Manitoban: we are strong, we are resilient, and we are here to support each other in times of need. I am proud to be a part of the Manitoba business community who is showing tremendous creativity in finding ways to keep our businesses alive. I am also proud to show my support by buying locally, finding ways to safely keep my employees working and paying their bills, and protecting my community by doing my part in showing measured, responsible responses to each stage of the shutdown and re-opening.

This too will pass, and when it is in our rearview mirror, I look forward to celebrating with all of you with an ice cream at the BDI, a concert at the Forks, and a beautiful steak on the 529 patio! 

- Doug Stephen, President, WOW! Hospitality Concepts

So many of us have learned new cooking and baking skills during this pandemic, but if you are feeling like hanging up the apron for an evening, take a look at our DINE-AT-HOME or our two Small Gathering Dinner Party menus, designed for households with a minimum of four people.

Missing that human connection that can only be found with a dinner party? We’re here to help with our Virtual Dinner Party menu. Choose your dining experience, and we will deliver to multiple locations simultaneously, so you and your guests can sit down together, connect virtually over the platform of your choice, and enjoy each other’s company. You can also connect with Sommelier Christopher Sprague to pair your dinner with selections from the WINE-AT-HOME menu.

Virtual Wine Tasting: What is a 529 experience without the perfect wine pairing? Sommelier Christopher Sprague would love to help you host a virtual wine tasting, either alongside your Virtual Wine Party or as a separate group event. 

Call us at 204.487.8325 to arrange a wine tasting or to order your feature 529 experience. We are open for pick-up or delivery from Tuesday to Saturday, 5:00 to 9:00 pm.

TAKEOUT WINDOW OPENS FRIDAY

The long weekend is almost here and that means the opening of our takeout window featuring family-friendly summer fare like hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, and more! It will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday until Monday to help you kick off the start to summer. Regular weekend hours will continue throughout the summer from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday to Sunday. 

After ordering, feel free to stay and enjoy your food, safely socially distanced, on our patio overlooking Kildonan Park!

This week’s Prairie’s Edge Saturday dinner is a prepared feast that you can heat up at home! Orders must be received by 1 p.m. on Thursday for pick up between 2 and 4 p.m. the following Saturday. To place your order, call 204-284-7275. Voicemails will be returned to confirm receipt of the order.

ENJOY TAKEOUT ON OUR PATIO

May Long Weekend is the unofficial kickoff to patio season and we want 2020 to be no different. To mark the occasion, we have created a special takeout menu available from Tuesday to Saturday. You’re invited to pick up your dinner and dine on our patio. There will be no table service, but hopefully lots of sun!
