Not Bad Connor

So Connor McDavid put on a show last night scoring 5 goals in the Billy Moores Cup. Yes he is an immensely talented player, just remember, that was against other Jr. players. Hold off thinking he’s going to do that a lot times this year. Is he going to be a star? I think so. Everything points to it. Should everyone in Oil Country and hockey fans in general be excited about this guy? Absolutely. However, like I said last week, don’t go all Bugs Bunny Yeti guy on him. Okay, I’d like to talk more about him, (because you know, he may feel ignored if we don’t talk a bit about him) but I have a TV appearance to get ready for over at CTV Morning Live at 8:15. See you at noon.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US: We are celebrating our 4th birthday this Friday, July 10th from 11-3 and you are all invited. We’ll be serving up some of that incredible tasty Chicken & Prosciutto MacnCheese Alfredo. There will also be free brewed coffee and birthday cake for you to enjoy. Hope to see you here.

TASTE OF EDMONTON July 16-25: We will once again be at Taste of Edmonton this year and for the week of July 20-24th, THE CAFE WILL BE CLOSED. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but then again it’s also why I am telling you now. Be prepared, make lunch plans. However, don’t worry, we’ll be back on Monday July 27th.

Festival Time

It’s Friday, Street Performers festival kicks off today. This excites me a lot, because that means Elephant Ears will be plentiful as well. As much as I love Street Performers, I love Taste of Edmonton a whole lot more. Always have ever since I moved here in 2001. This year will mark the third year in a row we have participated in Taste. This year we have a pretty tasty pair of selections. Returning is the refreshing Affogato which is Espresso Coffee poured over Vanilla Ice Cream. It’s a real nice treat on a hit Edmonton day or night. Our other item is one we are really excited to be serving up. Our Saintly Good Meatballs are going Prime Time Baby! We are serving ALL BEEF MEATBALL SLIDERS! Our tasty all beef meatball along with our in house made Tomato Sauce served up in a nice baby bun. I think you’ll love it a lot. It will be just one of the many tasty treats being served up at Taste this year….A week from today, we’ll celebrating our 4th birthday, albeit 10 days early because our actual birthday falls on July 20th and we’ll of course be at Taste Of Edmonton. You are all invited to come in for lunch, have some free birthday cake and coffee. It will just be regular hours, so if you can make it out, fantastic.

TASTE OF EDMONTON July 16-25: We will once again be at Taste of Edmonton this year and for the week of July 20-24th, THE CAFE WILL BE CLOSED.

It’s Thursday, Right?

So, is anyone else feeling a bit off after the mid week day off? I know it happens with Remembrance Day quite often too. It just feels that Wednesday Canada Day’s bind you into staying closer to home, unless of course you are already on vacation, then it doesn’t matter. For me, this was the first time in a few years that I wasn’t at a lake enjoying some down time. The good part though, it is Thursday which means tomorrow is Friday. So there’s that at least. Well I certainly hope you enjoyed your Canada Day. We’ll see you at noon.

Welcome To Oil Country Connor

So not sure if you all heard, but the Edmonton Oilers drafted this McDavid kid from Ontario. He’s supposed to be pretty good, so that’s a positive. What’s impressive is how smitten everyone in Oil Country seems to be with this guy. All kinds of celebratory things for him and street namings and day namings, yada yada yada. Jeez, some of you all be turning into that yeti in Bugs Bunny, grabbing poor Connor by his neck promising to love him and squeeze him. Well, I can jump on the bandwagon as much any one else can. So welcome to Oil Country Connor McDavid. I hope you enjoy it here. On a side note to that though, at no time will this place ever become McLittle Italy Pasta Panini & Catering. Nor will we rename anything like McDavid Good Meatballs, or Chicken & Prosciutto McMacnCheese Alfredo. And yes Connor, you have to pay for your meals here. Win a couple of Stanleys than we’ll talk about a free lunch…..So here we are, the end of a pretty awesome month. It’s last call really as Cannoli Month wraps up and there will be a nice cheque going to my friends at Ronald McDonald House. Although today is the last day, you can place an order and pay for it to be delivered at a later date.  A big thank you to everyone that generously purchased more than a few cannoli…… As June wraps up, July kicks in, and it will be a fun and crazy month to be certain. We have our 4th birthday coming up next week, with more details to follow. The big party though is Taste of Edmonton. So excited to be launching our All Beef Meatball Sliders. Our saintly good ALL BEEF Meatballs with tomato sauce inside a baby bun. SO GOOD!!!!  Returning this year as our second feature, is the Affogato (espresso over vanilla ice cream)…..Keep in mind tomorrow is Canada Day. We will be closed, but back to work on Thursday. See you at noon.

JUNE IS CANNOLI MONTH: We are teaming up with our friends at Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta for a delicious fund raising campaign. All month long in June, ALL PROCEEDS raised from EVERY cannoli we sell will be going to RMHNA. WHY? Because it is an amazing place with some incredibly strong and inspirational people that are going thru a lot right now, and I think they could really use a little more love and support in their lives. Now you may also be wondering, what is a Cannoli? Well it’s origins trace back to Sicily, and it’s a tube shaped pastry shell with flavored Ricotta Cheese. I went and gave them a whole lot more deliciousness to them though. We make a wide range of flavours like the Skor, Oreo, M&M, Almond, Strawberry, Cherry Cream, Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Nutella, and Caramel. You can order Cannoli and pick them up or for any order of a dozen or more we can deliver them for $10.00. Also, because these are especially made, on all orders of 12 or more, a minimum of 4 per flavour is required. To place an order, call 780-960-8500 or email gerry@littleitalypasta.com

June Is Ending Fast

Well here we are, the last 2 days of June. School is pretty much out. I must say though, I have never been a fan of mid week Canada Days. You just can’t really get into it unless you have the week off or at minimum the next day off. Oh well, just means that we’ll be sticking around town that day and partaking in some of the festivities offered up locally. Really though I just want to ohhh, ahhh and oooooh to the fire works. So ya, keep in mind we will be closed on Wednesday for Canada Day. You do though, have two days left to participate in Cannoli Month. It would be pretty awesome to sell 227 more cannoli so we can hit our goal of $2,000 raised.

Thank You Yelp

Last night was one of those nights that you just love to be a part of. We had the pleasure of participating in YELP Edmonton’s Night At the Royal Museum of Alberta Event hosted by Jennie Marshall of YELP. We were able to use the event as a preview to our Taste of Edmonton entry this year; All Beef Meatball Sliders. The feedback was more than positive and I sure hope they are as well received at Taste. Also got to hang out with some pretty awesome people like Chef Dave Omar from Zinc, Chef Rafael D’Alcazar from Melting Pot and Lindsey Porter from El Cortez just to name a few. Of course none of this happens without the talents Jennie Marshall and her invitation to us to get to play nicely with everyone else.  Please be aware, we will be closing at 2PM Today to prepare for a private event tonight, sorry for any inconvenience. Now, it’s back to lunch service mode. See you at noon.

The First Job

So, Summer is in full bloom. Think this little cafe would be a fun place to work? Or perhaps be an ideal summer job for your kid looking for their first position of professional employment. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work for me? It’s actually a treat of sorts. You are subjected to the melodic tones of my singing voice which are up there amongst the crooners like Martin, Sinatra, Elvis and Weird Al. Having a bad day? Well the minute you walk in the cafe and see me, it’s like I am the sun to shine upon your otherwise dreary day. Plus, we always get to watch Corner Gas at 10 am and that is just a reason alone worth showing up to work for. However, I will lose my calm demeanor if you turn stupid on me. For example, let’s say you enjoy eating the Italian food of another restaurant within the Capital region. Say a place that rhymes with Shmolive Darden. If a customer asks you what a certain type of dish is like, the wrong answer would be to say something like “It’s okay, it’s not as a good as Shmolive Garden though”. Yep, that actually happened once. You can’t say stupid things twice when you’re not brought back for a second day. Even if you think it’s true, don’t say it. That alone is argument enough not to pay someone $15/hour but that’s a discussion for another day. Truth be told, I have had a few people that worked for me that I would love to pay $15/hour. Oh well, someday, that could be a reality….Looking forward to this Thursday night as we will be one of the food vendors at YELP’s Night at The Royal Alberta Museum. I would tell you how to get tickets, but the event if full, and the best you can hope for is get taken in off the waiting list. Details at www.yelp.ca/edmonton…. Ok, Cannoli Month needs your help. We need to sell 308 more Cannoli to reach $2,000 for Ronald McDonald House. More details listed below.
