Journey Down the Rabbit Hole - Meet Our Sponsors - Braised

Braised Restaurant & Bar settles into Leslieville in Toronto's east end. The focus is on slow cooked comfort food, using local and seasonal products. "Raised and braised" dishes are available for lunch, dinner and brunch on weekends. A trendy spot for private parties, semi-private events and grabbing a casual bite with friends.

Their eclectic, modern decor is thanks to their connection to local artists from the GTA. You can see pieces from Mark Gleberzon, Stan Olthuis, Andrea Rinaldo and Andrea Rinaldo. It's worth popping in just to see the amazing artwork, but trust us you'll want to stay for the food. The laid back, inviting atmosphere is just one of our favourite things about this must see Toronto hotspot.

We actually met the owner Sam through his past restaurant, the Danforth hotspot Lolita's Lust. He is a huge supporter of the arts in many ways... featuring local artists and DJ's and allowing new filmmakers to take over his restaurant to shoot their first short film (cough, cough). We shot our first short film, 'How Not To Look For Love" at Lolita's and couldn't have asked for a better experience.

If you loved Lolita's as much as we did, you will truly love Braised. The food is incredible and the hospitality is on point. We are SO THRILLED to be connecting with Sam again for Rabbit Hole and can't wait to show off the exclusive pre-fix menu he has created for our show.

Countdown to our NOT Another TIFF Party Fundraiser

DAY #3 - Today's post is all about the life of the party, our incredible alcohol sponsor!!! We were lucky enough to get a tour of the winery today in Port Dover and have an exciting behind the scenes tour to show you BUT we're not gonna give it all away at once! Keep checking in as we get closer to the event for more goods, a lucky reader may even get some Frisky Swag out of it before the party.

Because of the incredible generosity of Smokin' Beaver Winery , we will be serving 3 different wines throughout the evening Frisky Red , Frisky White and Blushing Beaver.

Join us and give all three a try!  If you love it as much as we do (which we guarantee you will) you can pick some up and enjoy it at home. 

Order online or from your local LCBO.

It started as a dream...

Then some wine drinking, serious thoughts, more wine, and some outlandish plans and the result was Frisky Beaver.

100% Canadian - made from 100% Canadian grapes. Where else would you expect your Beaver to be from? We pledge to provide magnificent wines that you would be proud to share and enjoy with friends.

Frisky Beaver is an award winning wine being named a Top 20 Under $20 Wine twice! On top of that, it has been featured on CTV News!
