Pop Up Neighbourhood


Our first Pop Up Neighborhood was a celebration of Hamilton's downtown core where we took a group of adventurers on a fabulous tour of four phenomenal eateries in one night!  Each restaurant prepared a trio; three signatures dishes that showcase their culinary horsepower.  On the way, we threw in some surprises!  Have a look and stay tuned for an announcement about Pop Up Neighbourhood #2! Tickets on sale soon!
