Cake and Trivia: photos!

Seventy-two Canadians mingled, drank Molson, ate poutine and Canada Day cake, answered trivia questions and sweated profusely at today’s Canada Day Cake and Trivia event! A million thanks to staff at Sammy’s for hosting us on the patio on this hot summer day (38 Celsius) and providing us with Canadian treats and lots of water. We loved the bilingual sign at the door!

Additional thanks to Royal Bank of Canada, Winnipeg Jets, Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and private individuals for donating freebies used as raffle and trivia prizes. A big thank you to Susana, Ian, Shesha and Caroline for making it all happen.

Enjoy the pics and stay cool!

Music in the Gardens: The Sadies (June 27)

A Canadian rock and roll / country and western band from Toronto, Ontario, The Sadies will be playing at Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Wednesday, June 27 at 7 pm.

Versatile and imaginative, they skip from astral psychedelia to shuffling bucolics and leap from puckish pop to righteous garage-rock without losing momentum or mastery. They’ve worked with a veritable roots-rock hall of fame, whether backing Neko Case for years, supporting Neil Young during a tribute to The Band, or joining X’s Jon Doe or Jon Spencer for full-length collaborations. But their albums, released since 2002 by North Carolina’s own Yep Roc, deliver masterclasses on pointed songwriting, lockstep harmonies, and a devil-may-care attitude to expectations and past successes.
