COVID 19 Pandemic Update

March 19th 2020

As many of you know, we decided to temporarily close our doors on St. Patrick’s Day, Tuesday March 17th.

We will be closed until at least March 31st in order for us to share the burden of attempting to “flatten the curve” of the spread of COVID-19. This will keep our staff and customers -as well as Albertans – safer and healthier.
We encourage everyone to stay home as much as possible over the next two weeks.
In the meantime we are working on a special project that we can hopefully release to you before we are back to business as usual. And with any luck, we will see you in April.

Our Facebook and Instagram accounts will be updated more regularly than our website so please check them for more updates as news is released.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding an upcoming event or booking, please feel free to email us anytime and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Stay safe.
-BSB
