You need to get on this like white on rice!

In September we launched our pop-up dinner and entertainment series on the Thomas Craig Oliver Terrace right here at NAC. Seven courses of phenomenal cuisine followed by a wonderful performance by Niagara’s own accordion heartthrob Mark Lalama. Here’s what some of you said:

“Last nite’s event was smashing! We enjoyed every minute and every bite and every sip and every musical note! . . . and bonus—met some more wonderful St. Catharine’s people.”

“Wonderful evening, all around! You guys did a great job.”

“St. Catharines never had it so good. NAC does the unexpected and consistently makes it extraordinary. Can’t wait to see what you do next.”

Well, that wait’s almost over. The next edition in NAC’s series of fine dining and knockout entertainment events is coming down the pike like a snow plough on full throttle!

Our generous chefs are back with us again to create our epicurean feast; Andrew McLeod and Kyle Paton of Bolete (soon opening downtown), and Adam Hynam-Smith of El Gastrónomo Vagabundo (the pioneering and award-wining food truck that’s rambled all over Niagara and the GTA these last five years). Since our last event, Chef McLeod placed second in PEI’s prestigious Garland International Chef Challenge. So let’s be real here, these are not only some of the best chefs in Niagara, there some of the best chefs anywhere!

Though we won’t be under the stars at NAC this time, we’ve found a venue a few doors down at our end of St. Paul that will provide the eclectic energy we thrive on.

The Kwong Chow is one of the oldest, continually operating restaurants in downtown St. Catharines, first opening its doors in 1981. It’s a brightly shining example of the classic Chinese/Canadian restaurant that was once ubiquitous in towns and cities of all sizes. The place is renowned among downtowners for its rare style: chandeliers, red velvet wallpaper, and a tabletop video game. The Kwong Chow—we are near certain—is also the last place on this earth where hamburgers and cheeseburgers are sold at the same price, we invite you to an alternate universe of free cheese!

Working from nothing more than a mention in passing, Wing and Soo, the Kwong Chow’s proprietors, have generously offered their restaurant as the host venue for our MOVE ON OVER fundraiser. That’s mighty neighbourly.

The event’s entertainment is sure to astonish, we guarantee it. However, for legal reasons, news of our headlining act must remain confidential at this time.

Seating is limited, buy your tickets early!
