Dish WeeklyPADMANADI CHRISTMAS BUFFETS
Everyone and their (vegetarian) dog knows how awesome Padmanadi’s buffets are. What could be better than the best in Indonesian vegetarian cooking, and as much of it as you want? I think that buffets are the best way to eat at Padmanadi—you can try things you’re not familiar with without the fear of having to drop a lot of dough on a mistake, you get to meet other like-minded veggies, and there’s a spirit of joviality in the restaurant even more so than is usual.
This year there will be two Padmanadi Christmas buffets—the first is this Friday on Dec 5 (12 pm - 10 pm) and the second is on Fri, Dec 19 (12 pm - 10 pm). The cost is $15, including GST and more information is available at padmanadi.com.
If you thought that wine was a heartwarming part of the holidays, you should try the warmth of whisky! It can be consumed before dinner, after dinner, under the Christmas tree, prior to and during a Christmas party, in a rocks glass, a highball, or a sweet, sweet eggnog, and it makes a great stocking stuffer.
To help you pick out the best whisky for your tastebuds and price range, Devine Wines will be holding an event where samples will be tasted, and whiskies can be purchased. Everything from an eight-year-old Tullibardine John Black to a 21-year-old Benromach. The cost for the evening is $45, and more information is available at devinewines.ca.
FLIP CBC THE BIRD
Old cranks across the nation will be excited about this event. From Fri, Dec 5 until Fri, Dec 19, the CBC is holding a Turkey drive in support of the Edmonton Food Bank with the cheeky title of “Flip Us a Bird.” Brilliant. Every government subsidy hating, dyed-blue-in-the-wool, liberal-baiting, gun-loving, coalition-protesting CBC opponent ought to be giving multiple turkeys to this one. That goes double for you, dad.
Turkeys can be dropped off at the Edmonton Food Bank (11508 - 120 St, Mon to Fri between 8 am and 4:30pm) and CBC Downtown (10062 - 102 Ave, Mon to Fri between 7 am and 6 pm) For more information visit edmontonsfoodbank.com. V
