It was a gorgeous night to dine outside for the Downtown Barrie’s BIA big event Curb Appeal. The backdrop this year was the downtown Barrie bus station on Maple Avenue. Perhaps a preview of things to come with talks of this being our new setting for the Barrie Farmer’s Market.
This year we were asked to participate by offering this adorable amuse bouche. The Lazy Tulip made an herbed tomato coconut soup that was topped off with an applewood smoked cheddar grilled cheese by the one and only Grilled Cheese Social Eatery. And in spreading the #Barrielove the Grilled Cheese used a sour dough bread from Barrie’s new downtown bakery called Homestead and the applewood cheddar from our local Barrie cheese shop – J’Adore!
Barrie’s Curb Appeal is not only a chance to socialize with lover’s of the downtown but it is also a fundraiser for the David Busby Street Center.
Another highlight of the evening was this performance by Courtney Dubois & Ben Lemen of the song “Downtown”. Another possible foreshadowing of things in the works!
