Life Is Short...and what we're doing about it!

Updated: Nov 23, 2021

Do you remember when we all learned that Christmas of 2020 would be "different" from any Christmas we had ever known before? For the first time in my 45 years of life (49 for Mark), we were not allowed to spend Christmas with family, friends, coworkers...virtually anyone really.

And although we pulled through (with Santa's help and yours of course), that moment put life into perspective and helped us remember that...

1) life is short and we don't know how much time we have together;

2) when time is limited, every moment needs to count;

3) when you have the chance to create "moments," don't wait for a reason...just do it.

And although we knew all of this before Christmas of 2020 was cancelled, the time passing around us has never felt so imminent as we try to catch up on 1.5 years of lost moments with the people we care most about.

So as we head into the 2021 holiday season, you might imagine that the Hub Town team would have a few fun things up our sleeves, because it's time to catch up, make memories and be together!! And heck, since store shelves will be struggling to keep up with demand (thanks to the pandemic level procurement problems around the world), all we may have is each other anyway...thank goodness, now let's make some memories!!

Hub Town EVENTS until the end of 2021...

November 5/2021: Taproom Comedy @theHUB

Taproom Comedy is back!! And we know you have a lot of laughs all ready to be released...fortunately, Kathleen McGee is in the house and she's going to help you out!

Do you remember having a babysitter who was the first person to explain what a bikini wax was? She was the one who always snuck into your mom’s scotch, gave you a nip, then had a screaming fight with her boyfriend on your land line, warned you off all men, then the boyfriend showed up and they spent the rest of the night making out on your couch. That's Kathleen...and her unapologetic and dark sense of humor will have you talking long after the show is over.


November 6/2021: JAZZ Night @theHUB

December 22/2021: BEER FAMILY Pajama Christmas Dinner - FEAST, FAMILY & FUN 2021!

If you were with us in 2019 (the last time we were allowed to have a beer family dinner), you'll remember the night fondly! It started with a BIG FAMILY DINNER (catered by our friends at Smokeshow BBQ, and you even brought your own favourite foods for sides), we added some beers and ended with LOTS OF LAUGHS as we did a White Elephant gift exchange!

So...why don't we do it again?? Here's what we're thinking:

For the FAMILY part:

  • That's YOU...your kids...your parents...your friends...your staff...whoever you have decided is your family...BRING THEM! Because your family is our family too!

For the FEAST part:

  • This time the incredible Chef Jordan Shane is going to bring you a feast to remember (plated this time though)!! Want to bring some extra eats along with you again? Go ahead...we know it wouldn't be "Christmas" without aunt Janice's Jello salad!

For the FUN part:

  • There's nothing quite as fun as a WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE!! You know the drill...everyone brings a wrapped (inexpensive) gift and then each person takes their turn opening, losing, stealing and winning back their favourite gift! And since we want to make this a little extra fun, we plan to add an extra fun gift into the mix once again!!


  • Let's kick this up a notch and make it a pajama party and throw in some prizes for best pj's!! But please...keep it's a family affair after all!!

So? Are you ready for a night of Beer, Family, Feast and Fun? Grab your tickets as soon as they're released and let's make us some serious Christmas memories!!

TICKETS HERE: (soon to be released)

Are you joining us?

Stay to be released asap!!

TICKETS HERE: (soon to be released)


So there you have it...that's what we have in store between now and the end of 2021 to help you remember the importance of being together while we can! We know the world is a scary place, but it's time to find our way back to each other and these are just a few ways we know will be worth every second!
