Hello, and welcome to The Nook Crêperie Inc.’s first official blog post of 2016! We have so much to talk about with regards The Nook. But first, if it’s all right with you, I’m going to introduce myself so that you’ll be able see a person behind the writing. If you dislike introductions and you’re just here for the news, feel free to skip over this next section and head on down to the following section entitled “Crêpe Cones Are Back!”. Without further ado, let’s begin!
Who Am I?
So you’ve decided not to skip this part after all? Well, that’s very kind of you. You have my thanks and appreciation. Onto business then!
My name is Colin Prentice. I’m 19 years old, and recently finished my first year at Algonquin College in Ottawa. I took the “Introduction to Music Industry Arts program”, and plan on taking the full “Music Industry Arts” program next year. At this point, you may be wondering what I plan on doing with a college certificate in music. And my answer is that I plan on trying to make a living as a rock star! Impractical, I know. But I believe your life hasn’t been fully lived until you make at least one serious attempt at fulfilling your wildest dreams. This brings me to my hobbies. As you probably could’ve guessed, playing guitar and writing songs fills up a fair amount of my spare time. I generally try to write songs that sound similar to bands like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Oasis, Nirvana, The Sheepdogs, and Sam Roberts Band (great Canadian artist, check him out if you haven’t already, he has many roots in Pembroke). I also spend a great deal of time hanging out with my friends and my girlfriend. That’s pretty much me in a nutshell. If you took the time to read that, I sincerely thank you once again for taking an interest in my life. Now, let’s move on to the good stuff.
Crêpe Cones Are Back!
June has been an exciting and busy month for The Nook Crêperie Inc. so far, and it looks as if that trend will continue into summer. June 1st was the official opening of La Petite Nook Crêperie at the Pembroke Marina. A number of you took the time to pay us a visit at “The Shack” (as we sometimes call it) since it’s opening, and for that, we thank you! We hope to see you again soon. If you haven’t yet experienced what we have to offer at our Marina location, we invite you to give us a try. A brief menu (subject to change) has been posted below to give you an idea of what we offer…
Savoury Crêpe Cones (The Sienna, The BLT, The Ham and Swiss, The Veggie)
A meal that is both delicious and nutritious. Also note that we will happily accommodate all vegetarian customers!
Sweet Crêpe Cones (Cinnamon Girl, Strawberry Chocolate, Banana Nutella, Pecan Caramel, Peanut Butter Chocolate)
A sweet treat that’s as nice to look at as it is to eat! Comes with a small scoop of your favourite ice cream, or whipped cream.
Jumbo Freezies, and an ever-changing selection of Ice Cream flavours. If you find yourself searching for a sub-zero temperature snack, we’ve got you covered.
Our drinks range from Italian Soda (passion fruit, strawberry, blood orange, lemon) to the standard canned pops and bottled waters.
La Petite Nook Crêperie is open 12-8 Tuesday to Saturday, and 12-4 on Sundays at the Marina (weather permitting). We’re ready when you are!
Marina Activities Resume
Now that you’ve got somewhere to eat when you’re at the marina, but now you need something to do. We’ve got the low down on that for you too.
White Pine Yoga began last Wednesday, and will continue to run every Wednesday (6PM-7PM) throughout the summer until the end of August. This is a great way to strengthen both your mental, and physical health. It can also be quite relaxing. The yoga takes place about 150 metres from La Petite Nook Crêperie, so remember us if you need something cold to eat or drink after your yoga session!
Staying on the subject of Marina activities, have you heard that starting next Friday (June 17th), “Waterfront Live!” will be starting up at the Riverwalk Amphitheatre? For those who haven’t heard, “Waterfront Live!” is a summer program held by the Recreation Department of Pembroke that showcases local performers every night from June 17th until September 1st at 7:00 P.M. The amphitheatre is conveniently located about 100 metres from La Petite Nook Crêperie, so we’re looking to take full advantage of our close proximity by handing out some money-saving promotions to you and any who will be there to check out some of Pembroke’s local talent. Stay tuned for more on that front! Also, starting next week, I’ll be writing up a little story on one of the performers/bands playing at the amphitheatre in the upcoming week. The story will feature in this newsletter/blog post, so also stay tuned for that.
That will be all from me for this week. Thank you for reading, and have a happy and productive week until next time!
