Waffle Movie Night

Our first Speak Easy Lounge event of the year is open to you here on our beloved land, a place were we seek to create a harmonious culture of humans living in attunement with the natural world.

Our Speak Easy Lounge will be offered two Fridays every month. Each one will feature a different offering, from wild food nights, elixir crafting, Wild coffees and teas, cob oven pizza nights, music jams, skill sharing and more.  Stay tuned for our future events!

For our first Speak Easy event of 2020, settle into our outdoor lounge by the fire and enjoy 3 unique artisan waffles crafted by 3 of our Elemental Guardians. From sweet and savoury flavours using organic heritage grains, wild acorn flour and local bacon to vegan, each offering will titillate and expand your waffle repertoire in unexpected ways. While we are enjoying waffles a screening of the original Dark Crystal movie and the first episode of the prequel will be aired.

Feel free to bring a blanket and dress for weather. If it get’s wild outside we’ll move indoors. Our event is open to children, however parents keep in mind the movie can be a bit scary in parts. You are welcome to bring your own drink, please keep to local crafted artisan spirits or even better home brewed ferments. We’ll have some wild teas to offer as well.

Please make your reservation ahead so we know how many waffles to make. Donations can be e-transferred to ElementalCollective2020@gmail.com using the password “elemental”.

If you prefer cash payment that can be arranged, just send us a message so we know your coming.

Sliding scale donations $20-30 goes to Save the Shire initiative. Children are free!

Stop waffling and join us for a night of culinary delight!
