Local Lounge and Grille

Even if you can only crawl up the Grind…the day will be well worth the food!

ImageNew update!!  Local Lounge • Grille  will be  providing Complimentary Buffet Breakfast for all Giants Head Grind Participants from -8:00 am – 10:00am prior to the race start. Thanks so much to Christa-Lee and Cam along with the entire team at Local for this generous sponsorship.

Local, in their own words is a  “multifaceted food and wine concept that merges casual sophistication with an upbeat urban style. They feature a large local VQA wine selection coupled with a menu that blends classic styles with seasonal local ingredients. The atmosphere is often described as an urban retreat with amazing views of the water and natural elements”.

Located at 12817 Lakeshore Drive South, Summerland, B.C.

The line up for the day just gets better and better with Breakfast really kicking the entire event off on the right foot! (so to speak).  Following breakfast there will be an hour of yoga at Peach Orchard Park from 11:00 a.m. until noon and then the main event, the race start at 1:00 p.m.

I am sitting in the Vancouver Airport and Rianna is playing ….lots of emotions and so many memories…can’t believe we are planning a race …wonderful…the support…amazing…and the reason…. shocking …….

Brodo KitchenIn the midst of all this emotion we are so pleased and excited to have the remarkable and always smiling Paul Cecconi, Chef and owner of Brodo Kitchen and Catering in Penticton, confirmed as our Race Chef! …his motto is Simply Fresh Food!! Paul will be bringing the BBQ to the park at the end of the race and in his true style  it will be remarkable.   ….for more on Brodo Kitchen, go to www.tastebrodo.com Thanks Paul …we are thrilled to have you and your Brodo team on board!

True Grains…and about those wonderful people at True Grains in Summerland. There couldn’t be a nicer group of bakers than those at True Grains where not only their breads are organic but their spirits are too. We are more than fortunate to have them in Summerland where I have seen them open there doors after closing time to provide product to a customer in need. True Grains will be joining us for the Grind to ensure that all the bread products and delectable cookies and snacks are healthy…thank you so much Todd Laidlaw and your team!  www.truegrain.ca/index.php/hours-3/summerland-location
