September 18th, 2013 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release

Did you find your wellington boots in time for Tropical Storm Gabrielle last weekend? Hope so. She came swooping down, bringing torrential rain that at least filled the wells and soaked the parched flower beds.......

September storms, though, always make the late summer days seem even more glorious.......So get out and enjoy them to the fullest! Then put on a sweater and check out what's happening in the village for those cooler nights.... LOTS of music this week:

This Week in Chester

The Fo'c'sle has PETER GRANT & 3 FOR NOW performing on Friday and THE KLUNKERS on Saturday. Cosy up, eat a warming meal and then sweat it out on the dance floor to warm up after the surprise suntan from the September sun. 9pm showtime for the bands.

LANA GRANT is performing at the Playhouse on Saturday 21st September at 7.30pm. Lana is a singer/songwriter from rural Nova Scotia who recently had a cookbook published with Granite Records, entitled, "Musicians, Memories & Morsels ~ An East Coast Story Cook Book". The cookbook is a collaborative effort between over 40 well known Atlantic Canadian musicians sharing their favourite food memories and recipes. Through the book, they hope to raise awareness about mental illness. Also appearing at the Playhouse during the evening are Norma MacDonald, Kev Corbett, and Asif Illyas.

If you're seeking a different venue and genre, there's a GOSPEL CONCERT at the Chester United Baptist Church, 84 King Street on Sunday 22nd, with BRENT REID of Cornerstone. Everyone's welcome to come and sing along from 6:30 pm onwards after which, Brent will take the stage at 7pm. Fellowship (tea and coffee etc) will follow the concert. 

If you haven't had a chance to visit José Valverde's gallery yet this summer, you have two more weeks to do so as they will be closing on September 29th. Doreen and José will still be selling artwork over the internet and one can make an appointment to view artwork on the premises, but they will no longer be having a gallery for impromptu viewing with established gallery hours.

Now that most of the family and guests have gone back to school, or wherever they came visiting from, if you haven't already, why not treat yourself to a gourmet dinner at NICKI'S INN?  You've barbequed enough all summer and eaten copious amounts of green salad. Her risotto is to die for and with the change of season there are different treats on the menu. Check out that blackboard. Sunday's Carvery is still as extravagant and delicious as ever - just skip breakfast and lunch to find room to fit it it all in. The true champions are those that can still find room for dessert. Open Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm-8.30pm.

A sure sign of fall, there are only two more Fridays to get to the ARTISAN AND FARMERS MARKET in 2013. Held at the Old Train Station/VIC on Hwy 3 in Chester, it's open from 10am-2pm promising bushels of autumnal bounty, baked goods, coffee and crafts.

Look at the size of Dan's marrow! How's yours looking?!
