A Very Successful Series of Weekend Events

Thursday night was hopping at Just Jake’s and the Brew Pub. Live entertainment with a prawn boil outside. Very popular.

Friday afternoon at the Red Arrow Brewery was crazy busy. Lineups for beer tasters were over 20 minutes. Really well received as folks sat outside in the sunshine and sampled the new beers and indulged themselves in buttered prawns.

Saturday at Cow Bay Seafood had, as expected, long lineups for live prawns. First live prawns of the season!!

Farmers Market in Duncan. Jeff from the Firehouse had a really successful prawn BBQ and was ecstatic with the reception from the public. Had difficulty keeping up with the demand. Heard great comments! Cowichan Bay Seafood set up a booth and sold live prawns. There was a lineup at 0845 and it ended when they ran out of prawns at noon.

Appreciative comments from many, especially those with physical limitations who had difficulty in the past getting to Cow Bay. Weather was great on Saturday.

Residents were lined up before start time at Lake Cowichan to purchase live prawns. Sales were very brisk all day and again customers were most appreciative. Pawns were huge. Several people asked if Cowichan Bay Seafood could possibly come back again tomorrow? next week? Father’s Day?

Unsworth wine tasting and the ouside prawn boil again were well received. Jakes on the Lake was full of happy customers, with garlic butter dribbling down their chins, as they munched away on a basket of steaming prawns and quaffed back a pint of beer or a glass of white wine. Just after noon, the clouds dispersed and the sun came out.

And a BIG BIG thanks to Gregg and Anne Best, of Cowichan Bay Seafood, who without there unfailing generosity and community spirit, none of this would have have been possible.

Thanks again for your support. Always appreciated and wait until you see what we are planning for 2016!! ….. and a big, final thank you to Mark Madriga and the CBC!!
