The Mercer Tavern located in the historic Mercer Warehouse, est. 1911, was the location of the Elite Event: March Madness At The Mercer! We ate, we drank; oh boy did we drink! We took a ton of cool pics, interviewed with Don Cherry in our own Coach's Corner and showed our love for our favourite team. "I started off with my die hard Habs jersey, pealed it off for my Team
Canada jersey, and brought it home with my Red Devils Korean Soccer
jersey" shares George H. Talk about a wardrobe Hat Trick!
Everyone knows Yelpers love to eat! So the Mercer invited us to try out, give our input and feedback on the items that will be part of the Mercer's New Menu. The Ruben was the all around hit: "They in house smoke thee meat for 24 hours with maple. To die for!" reveled Kristin K. And Andrew H melted: "If you're a cheese lover, the grilled 4 cheese sandwich will make you
say, "I fromage you" because you'll love it like the sandwich child you
never had." Jodie M swooned; that the "vegan tomato soup (with basil oil) was lovely."A special thanks to Flirt Cupcakes for Wendy P's Birthday surprise!
Over a century ago the Mercer building was a warehouse used to store liquor, cigars, and wine. And on March 27th there were definitly no shortage of liquids! Absolute Vodka's newest flavour, Cherrykran, was the star of the show with the Five Hole martini. Sapporo beer was flowing on draft, as was Creemore Springs. The suprise hit and subject of a lot of talk the next day was the Jacob's Creek Moscato!
The photo master Dave Tameling was on hand snapping pics in the United Cycle sponsored photobooth. Oh Canada, can we rock a hockey themed photo booth that will have you sayin' "puck, I look gooood!" Like many of the ladies, Lea A "left with a super great shot of me punching my husband in the face with hockey gloves. That's going on the mantle!"
The night was definitely one H.E.double hockey sticks of a good time!
