Royal wedding events

Iron Horse 

Since the folks at the Iron Horse didn’t receive one of the 1,200 invitations sent out to Meghan and Harry’s personal guests either, they’re bringing the spirit of St. George’s Chapel and Windsor Castle to the Iron Horse Hotel for a very British brunch and viewing party.

Live viewing party of the Royal Wedding starts at 6 a.m. projected on their big screen. Brunch is 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Plus, there will be plenty of pints and a set by DJ Paul H.

Red Lion Pub

Red Lion is also doing an English-themed royal celebration brunch and champagne toast. They'll be open at 5 a.m. Since it's the event of the century, they're recommending that you make reservations.

Three Lions Pub

Their sister restaurant in Shorewood, Three Lions, is doing a royal tea party starting at 5 a.m. Enjoy the warmth of our authentic British pub atmosphere, while sipping Twinings Tea, paired with delectable mini sandwiches, British savory favourites and English sweets and pastries.

Little Duck Kitchen

Odd Duck in Bay View is opening an event space next door called Little Duck Kitchen and Catering. To kick off the opening of this rental venue, they're hosting The Spring Foragers & Farmers dinner. The original event on May 20 sold out, but a second dinner, on May 19, has been added and will serve spring entrees of foraged ingredients. Watch out for future beer and wine dinners, brunches and pop-ups, even classes at Little Duck.

Morel Mushroom Dinner

Looking for some morel support? Mushroom Mike is back with this signature event for the third year in a row with the Morel Mushroom Dinner at Lake Park Bistro on May 24. With a bounty of rare mushrooms, him and his other chefs will be hosting a five-course dinner paired with wine. The event is sold out, but this menu is inspiring.

Paella Palooza

This event isn't sold out...yet. Paella Palooza is on Sunday, May 27. It's like Lollapalooza but with paella! Hotel Madrid & Movida are having paella cook-off featuring Spanish cocktails, G&Ts and of course, sangria. Eat all the paella you could ever want and see who takes home the Golden Paella Pan.
