Tonight Live Music With Highrise Lonesome At The Tipper Restaurant & Review Room

1 Feb


The Tipper Restaurant & Review Room, 2066 Kingsway (at Victoria), continues its Saturday Night Concert Series with live music by Highrise Lonesome tonight. If you come for a bite of dinner first, come early, as the restaurant is small and can be busy. Or a personal favourite that is close by and within walking distance is the Green Lettuce Restaurant, 1949 Kingsway. The food is a mix of Asian cuisines (Indian and Chinese) and pretty delicious from personal experience and reports by others.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. at the Tipper Restaurant & Review Room and the show gets going at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10.

Tipper Restaurant & Review Continues Saturday Night Supper Series

8 Jan


The Tipper Restaurant and Review Room continues their Saturday Concert Series in 2014. On deck this Saturday night is Neighbourhood Night with hosts Andrea Smith and Barbara McGeough.  Hopefully, Andrea will do a song or two for everyone. This woman has an amazing voice with the looks of Meryl Streep and bit of the devil may care attitude that seems to go with both these women.   Then on Saturday, January 18th, The Tipper Room welcomes Just Duets and on Saturday, February 1st, the local bluegrass band, Highrise Lonesome.

Each of the evenings, music begins at 8:00 p.m., but doors open at 7:15 p.m. Reservations are not available, so either come early for dinner and grab your seat, or come and have a drink while you watch the show.  Cost of show is $10 at the door or pay what you can.  The Tipper Restaurant and Review Room is located at 2066 Kingsway at Victoria Drive.
