Canada Day celebration at Kooky Canuck this Sunday

This Sunday, July 1, Kooky Canuck will host a Canada Day celebration. There will be food and drink specials, a poutine eating contest, and prizes for best Canadian attire.

Drink specials will include 34 ounces of Labatt Blue beer for only $3, and $5 34 oz. 40 Tea. There will also be specials on their 29 Canadian whiskys.

Food specials will include the following:

Soup: Split Pea Soup

App’eh’tizers: Perogies and Poutine

Entre’eh’s: Montreal Steamies, Donair, Maple Sirloin Steak

Desserts: Butter Tarts, Maple Bread Pudding and Nanaimo Bars

There will also be a poutine eating contest. Poutine is a Canadian dish of fries topped with cheese and gravy. The contest will start at 2 PM, and whoever can eat the most plates of poutine in the specified time will be declared the winner. Sign up here if you want to be in the contest.

There will also be a “Most Canadian” contest. Wear your Canadian colors or jersey and have your photo taken. Entries will be judged online after the event, and winner will get a $100 gift certificate. (I bet a Canadian flag tube top would do well in the contest.)

They’ll have Canada Day shirts and cups available for purchase. The event is sponsored in part by Honourary Canadian Consul to Memphis, B. Lee Mallory. Come on down to Kooky on Sunday and celebrate our neighbor to the north.
