Jinglebones, Jinglebones, jingle all the way

Okay, so it doesn't have quite the same ring to it - but listen up - it's a gathering of trombone players organized by mon frere to celebrate the season and raise some funds and food for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

Plus, it's at the Rhino which has a vast, vast selection of beers - especially some lovely Yuletide varieties from across the pond.

That is the slightly annoyed Sam - the Jinglebones spokesmodel if you will and he certainly does speak that is, particularly when he is hungry.

It starts at around 7:30 ish....

Had a lovely meal at Alhambra in Bronte Village last night - Middle Eastern and North African food - amazing dips - with fava beans, home made pita bread and the most delicious couscous/tagine I've had - Vegetarian Casablanca it was called and indeed is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I was there with the Veggies of Halton Peel. I am now trying to analyze how they made it - no tomato in evidence - possibly a saffron/fennel/cinnamon vegetable broth - veggies included artichokes, turnip, carrots, potatoes and chickpeas. The owners are lovely people as well - check it out if you're out that way - I understand it's often really, really busy...here's the link to the menu - it's not strictly veg....

Disappointed I can't see "Ramona and Beezus" this afternoon - that was supposed to be the showing at 1:30 downstairs - for me and all the other kids...oh well..hopefully "How to Train Your Dragon" is available tomorrow....
