The Livery Restaurant is open - Chef Barrie Elliot and her team debuted July 7. People were packed in among colourful horse art, eagerly devouring the new menu samples and signature cocktails. The evening went well past the late summer sunset - fully celebrating the newest restaurant on the block.
A delicious and dangerous drink on their menu is the Maple Bourbon Cider.
Maple Bourbon Cider
1.5oz Makers Mark bourbon
Fresh lemon juice
.5oz maple syrup
Topped with apple cider
Shaken on ice, poured into a rocks glass and topped with a pinch of cayenne pepper.
To many people’s horror, neon returned to the fashion scene this spring. Neon tanks, jewellery and hats are all trending right now. Either you embrace it or hold your breath until it’s over.
The right way to wear neon is to essentially use it as a highlight. Full head to toe neon is too bright, no one needs to be a human pylon. Try a neon tank with jean shorts and simple sandals. Or a colourful array of neon bracelets and a simple white tank. Neon bikini? Yes - go all the way! Maybe just your toes are as far as you are willing to go.
Neon makes the most sense when on a beach, but when dressed down with neutral colours it can really make a chic statement at dinner.
I give neon the green light for a hot sunny August!
