Fashion East was happy to be a part of the Big Day Downtown event this year and give some love to the great shops & attractions of downtown Halifax. This year we were asked to pick three keywords out of a hat that would shape our adventures: Dramatic, Creative & Playful.
With these adjectives in mind we headed downtown this past weekend to The Drawing Room at the Henry House on Barrington St. . The bartender poured us a delicious & dramatic-looking cocktail. The Drawing Room is the closest thing to a time machine in Halifax where you can order a drink off the menu based on the year it was most popular. We recommend the hit drink of 1915, the French 75.
Afterwards we headed to The Seahorse Tavern for J-BRU's CD release featuring other local rappers Quake Matthews, Jay Mayne and Toronto’s GQNumberOne . The crowd was appreciative, the rhymes were creative and Propeller's Horsepower beer had kick. We rounded off the night with a quiet 3am bike ride home.
To capture the last bit of summer on an otherwise bleak Monday we got in touch with our inner child and stepped into Yeh! Frozen Yogurt & Cafe. With so many options it was hard to choose only one topping ( Fruit Loops or Pop Tarts? ) so we ended up with some playful creations & maybe a slight sugar rush.
Much thanks to the Downtown Halifax Business Commission for inviting Fashion East to participate for another year!
