Friday Meatball Madness

meatball madness

It’s no secret. Brad loves meatballs.

So every Friday (except on Canada Day on Friday, July 1) we celebrate meatballs at KITCHEN by Brad.

Each Friday, we make a different flavour of meatball and a different side dish. They are piping hot and ready for you to eat for lunch. There’s been Mexican meatballs, “beef dip” balls, meatballs made with Irving’s farm fresh pork, Rangeland bison, wagyu beef and more.

For $8.00, you get three just-prepared meatballs and our side dish of the day, which could be mashed potatoes, fried rice, roasted potatoes — who knows!  You’re welcome to each your lunch at KITCHEN, or you can take it back to the office or across the street to the park.

Follow us on Twitter as we tweet this week’s meatball flavour and side on Friday mornings. Meatball Madness is available only on Fridays from 11:30am to 1:00pm. The meatballs often sell out so get here early!

Preparing for your long table dinner at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village

UkrainianVillage_4136The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village (UCHV) is located 30 minutes east of Edmonton along Highway 16, just 3 km east of Elk Island National Park. (During summer months, please allow up to 60 minutes travel time due to construction work on Highway #16.) For detailed location information, please see their website.

The UCHV is open to the public daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Labour Day, and you are welcome to visit this award-winning living-history museum at your leisure earlier in the day.

Upon arrival at the UCHV, please stop at the Admissions Booth and indicate you are arriving for the long table dinner. From there, park in the main parking lot and proceed to the main Visitor Centre. The pre-dinner program will begin at the Visitor Centre at 5 p.m.

At the Village, you will be stepping back in time into a rural outdoor setting, we recommend all guests prepare by wearing/bringing the following:

  • Good walking shoes for our gravel roads and paths.  There will be some walking involved in the pre-dinner program, as well as a walk back to parking at the end of the evening.
  • Sun protection and bug spray. During the beginning of the program guests will likely be enjoying some lovely late day sunshine, and as the sun goes down some mosquitoes may be out.
  • Jacket or sweater. As the sun goes down, this will help you remain comfortable in the cooler evening.
