From the Facebook Event Page:

A few summers back we felt like the city needed a brunch with more flavour and soul, so we got together with celebrity chef Chef Rob along with DJs and performers to put together Winnipeg's first R&B brunch and day party! And people LOVED it.

We've had a lot of brunch parties and even more night events since, and for the first time we're doing both together - brunch during the day AND a Winter Warm Up Party at night! No work Monday!

Holiday season is done, spring/summer still seems way off, and it's the first long weekend of the year. RHYTHM & BRUNCH is back Sunday February 17th! Come out to TEO'S on Corydon @ 12:30 pm for good food, good music, dancing, drinks, and you know there's always good vibes at an RNR party! Chef Rob will take you on a culinary tour of comfort foods from warm destinations with a multi-course gourmet brunch, while DJ TAYNE Christine Cosino adds your favourite R&B and soul music to the mix, AND we have a very special guest performance to complete the experience for all of your senses! Not to mention champagne included, and exclusive craft cocktails made especially for Rhythm & Brunch.

Your ticket to the Rhythm & Brunch experience also INCLUDES PART 2 - the night event starting at 10:00 pm back at TEO'S on Corydon with DJs Chubby D and Matt Henry bringing the R&B, Reggae and good vibes to you!

- Complimentary champagne with your brunch for everyone , and tables of 4+ will get a bottle.

- Brunch event advance tickets (includes night party) $45

- Night party only - $10

Put it in your calendar and come down for some amazing food and music!

When purchasing tickets, call 204.414.6305 to reserve your table.
