Pre-Festival Brunch & Fringe Act Tapas

Special edition of our monthly Sunday brunch.  In addition to the our usual fun social antics, we're adding a tapas of the Fringe into the mix --- sneak peeks (3-5 min live previews) of approx. 6 shows at this year's festival! 

Our venue this month is Murrieta's on Whyte in their lovely main dining room.   The performance/stage will be in front of the fireplace.  Seating for our brunch will be a bit different - rectangular tables of 10.

To accommodate our large group, the Murrieta's team is offering us an all-inclusive price of $25 for any of their brunch entrees + choice of coffee or tea.  Taxes and gratuity are included in the $25...which each member and guest will pay individually

Here's an image of Murrieta's brunch menu:

Newcomers are always welcome! 

If the RSVP limit is reached, members are encouraged to join the waitlist.  The event hosting team will look into increasing the reservation.

    Darn. It conflicts with the Edmonton Folk Festival, the highlight of my year. I know the day will come that I can’t manage to get tickets, but it hasn’t happened as of yet. (Whoops, that sounds like favoritism---but I do love the Theatregoers group, too!)
