Pirates will Play

Pireat Playland_f

Well it’s true, it’s finally happening! The current Kids Play Area at the Clubs has been demolished and painting is beginning.

The current area closed for renovations on Monday morning (22 May). We understand the pressure this places on parents, and children, to keep occupied during their visits to the Club. But we promise, the next two weeks will fly by quickly. During that time you’ll see new pieces go in, walls transformed, floors changed and eventually a brand new Pirate Ship will dock.

Pirate Playland is on it’s way. Pretty sure we’re more excited than you right now.

Pirate Playland Opening Soon_3On Saturday 3 June, we will officially open the brand new Pirate Playland area to all members and visitors of Toronto Workers Club with a full pirate weekend. You know, so all pirates get their play.

Broken into two sessions on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4, each little pirate can enjoy pirate hosts with face painting, eating one of our pirate ship meals for free and possibly picking up one of the prizes for being the best dressed pirate. The times are 12 until 2pm and then again 6 until 8pm.

We recommend, due to the hype of the event, you get in quick to book your table during those times. The new playland is in high demand and we totally understand why. You can make your reservation by phoning 49592011.

But once the playland is open, it won’t stop there. There will be more news to come on our Pirate Playland Adventures, so be sure to stay tuned across all our social media and online communication.

PS – big Pirates also welcome…our team will be joining in!

Oh Yeah Yee-Haa!

YeeHaa Hoedown

You’re sitting in your lounge room, kids watching TV and winter chill has set it. Slippers, dressing gowns, heaters and soup are all a necessity. Hold on though, don’t get too comfy, Saturday 27 May will warm you up with a Yee-Haa Hoedown. How you ask? Well let me tell you (we can even show you)!

https://youtu.be/d05tQrhNMkA – Ok, so Brooks & Dunn won’t be at the Workers Club but you get the gist on how you can warm up with Bev Sandiford & the Coastal Bootscooters (show in photo below). Coastal BootscootersWith live performances, they’re even going to throw in some crash courses in learning to boot scoot. This is all happening from 3pm – 5pm in the Club’s Main Lounge. Adults, Kids, Learners, Experts, you’re all welcome to come down and scoot up the dance floor!

So you’ve got your steps down packed, ok maybe the kids do, you’ve still got to practice. They can then take their newest talent down to the Kids Area for the Free Cowboy Cowgirl Disco from 6pm. All the while you feed them for free!

You’ve rested, eaten, refuelled and ready to boogie. Chad Shuttleworth Duo will deliver fantastic country tunes, because now it’s your turn to practice your new talent. You can scoot around the floor, we’ll even let you make up your own steps, as long as you like from 8pm. Again, not Brooks & Dunn, but these guys have got the voice and the talent, don’t worry, they’ll deliver!

So, are you warm yet?

Yee-Haa Hoedown_2Now while you sip on your cup of tea, toasting in front of your heater in your favourite uggies, think “what would I do with $20,000?”

Oh did we forget to mention, the night you’re dancing, warming up, burning the dance floor and feeding the kids for free, you could also win a neat $20,000 cash, just by being in the Club at the time of the draw. Of course you have to be a member, but that’s easy. We can fix that up for you.

Hmmm what else? The Club will be filled with our very own Cowboys and Cowgirls; the country version of the TWC Group A-Team. The Jose Ho-Down cocktail will feature for the day, and you know what, why don’t you dress up as well for some fabulous photo opportunities?

Are you warm now?

Good. Then hop up, put the Yee-Haa Hoedown on your Calendar, send out the SMS to your mates to get them to make a fool of themselves with you, and make your dinner reservation at the Club by phoning 49592011.

We look forward to seeing you…. and your “boot scootin’ boogieeeeeeeee” (you sang that part didn’t you?)

Everyone loves Lego, even the big kids, so this time we’ve launched two Lego Workshops. Wednesday 12 and Wednesday 19 April. A Pirate Lego Workshop and an Underwater Lego Workshop. Hosted by a qualified Lego builder and representative, there will be building competitions, games, activities and prizes. The Lego workshops are a little more involved and are open to children 6 to 12 years of age.

Then to finish us up we’ve got one for all the Mermaids at heart, with an Underwater Party on Tuesday 18 April. Proudly presented by our Mermaid Host there will be games, activities and prizes. We’re hoping to see everyone’s mermaid scales and beautiful tails. This party is suitable for children 4 to 12 years of age.mermaid10

Each party and workshop is accompanied by lunch, a drink and a qualified party host. The only condition is, parents or guardians must remain on the premises, as the parties and workshops are not a creche or care program.

Tickets for each of parties and workshops can be purchased from the Club or by phoning 49592011. Tickets are $15 per child. Reservations cannot be held without a paid ticket. We do prefer that all tickets are purchased in advance as there is only 30 spots per party available.

Bringing It Back

We’ve located the LED floor and found our combs for our afros. We’re ready to party on Saturday night with the Solid Gold Party and Dave Cochrane. Oh, you don’t know what we’re talking about? Let me catch you up to speed…

retro-revival-2017_ad-1Saturday 18 February will see the retro dance floor come back with all your favourite tracks, cocktails and dinners thanks to the Club’s Retro Revival evening. Even the team is involved with the day providing them an outlet to get inspired. That is, they can come dressed as the best 60’s, 70’s or 80’s dance floor queen (or king) for their own satisfaction.

The Club will open at 9am with the team dressed to impress from the time we open to the time we close. Retro-Tails (which are all your favourite old fashioned cocktails) will be available for purchase from the main bar from 9am.

The Cafe and Indulge then become involved with your old favourite retro treats and dishes (including the good old apricot chicken).

From 8.30pm Dave Cochrane brings the dance party to our LED light up dance f
loor with all your favourite tracks from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. There’s even prizes for you to be involved. Prizes for the Best Retro Revival Outfit & Best Retro Dance Moves. Make sure you come prepared because I hear the dance competition will be “hot”!retro-revival-2017_ad-2

Don’t worry, we have’t forgotten about the littlies. The kids can join in from 6pm until 8pm with their very own Free Kids (80’s themed) Disco. This will be featured in the main kids area and hosted by our very own party hosts from Party Star. Even the kids get their own dress-up (80’s style). This gives you permission to get our the hair crimper, thousands of bangles and fluro attire. Oh, and they even eat free in Indulge from 5.30pm.

Retro Revival is here for you, here for the staff and here for Saturday 18 February 2017 only. Don’t miss it. It’s that one time that we will accept your rainbow flares, platform shoes and big hair (no judgement here). Enjoy it!

Who’s Your Valentine?

Valentine’s Day…that day where everything turns red and pink, is dominated by love hearts and all that mushy goodness. There’s always different opinions on V-Day…single people hate it, some couples over indulge and then there’s every one else who’s indifferent.

v-day-be-mineThis year Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday. Middle of the week. Not even close enough to the weekend to hold off. Usually the day or two before pay day. So the gifts, if you’re buying, need to be advanced planned, delayed until after pay day or on the cheap so you’re not feeding your date 2-minute noodles.

Although Clubs don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, we decided to make it easier for everyone, if they wish to participate. Our Valentine’s Celebrations started on February 1 and will end on Tuesday 14.

Our deliciously fresh made cocktails will carry you through for two full weeks of celebrations. So bring in as many dates as you like, the v-day cocktails will be available until close of trade on Valentine’s Day.

v-dayHowever, the food is what most of you are after. And with a little advanced planning you can have several V-Day celebrations. Our three course menu specially designed by our Head Chef is available from Friday February 10 until Tuesday February 14 for dinner.

Enjoy Greek Style Lamb Cutlets for your entree, Crispy Skin Pork Belly for your main and a Choc Hazelnut Tart to finish with. If you can’t eat three, that’s OK. Mix and match your courses as you please. If you choose to eat dessert first followed by your entree, then do it. The dinner celebration plan is completely up to you. And our friendly beverage staff will help you match a wine, beer (or soft drink) to your meal. We do recommend you book though, make sure you phone 49592011 to make your reservation (let us know it’s a Valentine’s surprise).

If you’re coming to dine on Tuesday 14, be sure to request the Amethyst Dining area. Roxy will serenade you and your date on our very own piano from 5.30pm. We’ve planned you the perfect atmosphere to meet your budget.

We’ve taken all the thinking out of it for you, all you need to do is find your Valentine’s date…or a variety of dates if that’s what makes you happy.

We want each of our Valentine’s Dates to feel special, loved and experience happiness while in the Club. That’s what we strive on. So…HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO ALL!
