The Flying Beaver Pubaret™
Okay so the reason it's been so long since I updated this site is because I've been doing THIS!:
HEATHER MACKENZIE AND MAGGIE CASSELLA PRESENT
THE FLYING BEAVER PUBARET™
Located in the Heart of Trendy Cabbagetown
For Dinner, Shows, Dancing, and Sunday Brunch!
Maggie Cassella and Heather Mackenzie present the grand opening of their joint venture: THE FLYING BEAVER PUBARET™
Okay so to answer your first question, a "Pubaret™" is a word we made up for our Pub/Cabaret concept. That's right a Pub/Cabaret. As to your second question, The Flying Beaver, well it's an airplane you dirty birds. Go look it up!
The formula for The Flying Beaver Pubaret™ is simple. Good food, good service, and a sweet cabaret room where you can sit and enjoy a show (from music to comedy) while our wait staff brings you food and drink and does everything for you except go to the loo! (And we’d do that for you too if we could because we’re aiming to give some great customer service).
You actually have to come in and see it because the way The Flying Beaver Pubaret™ is set up you can have dinner in the pub side while a show is going on in the cabaret and never even know it. So you could do JUST dinner, or dinner and a show or just a show or just drinks or just come for dancing. At The Flying Beaver Pubaret™ you CAN do it all! And remember there’s never a cover in the Pub(ber) (even if there’s a show going on in the Cabaret).
Our head chef Michelle Lindo brings her eclectic tastes of the islands cuisine to The Flying Beaver Pubaret™ menu. Infused with Asian, Island, Indian, and even Spanish, she’s veering from the path of the usual Canadian pub grub.
Hours of operation are Thursday thru Saturday from 4pm to 2am. Shows are on Friday and Saturday and are followed by DJ Carol Hylton on Fridays and guest DJ’s on Saturdays and for Sunday T-Dance. Sunday brunch begins at 10 am.
Coming Friday and Saturday April 1st and 2nd comedian CARLA COLLINS!
Coming Thursday and Friday April 7th and 8th Cameryn Moore in her one woman show “Phone Whore”!
TIX for shows are cash only and available at the bar in advance for a reduced price OR on line at Brown Paper Tix with Credit Card. Door prices the night of show are higher.
Dinner reservations before show are recommended.

New Year's Eve Disco and a Show!
Why spend New Year's trying to keep up, when you can fall back. To another era. It's a retro NYE party and comedy show hosted by Heather MacKenzie and Maggie Cassella.
Come as you are! Or as you were. Or as you might have been if you were alive when polyesther was flammable. Kristen Becker, Vong Sundara, and Heather Gold kick off the night with a comedy show to may you yuk yuk. ... Showtime 8:30pm THEN, DJ Carol and DJ Cat spin retro music (or whatever else you want to hear - these DJs take requests) into the New Year. DJ's start spinning right after the show. Party favours. Munchies. 70's games for prizes! (No, this is not a key party but you may get lucky you never know). Tickets can be had for the show only or the dance only or the entire evening. Show Only: $15 Dance Party Only: $20 The Whole Enchilada: $30 (8pm - 3am) Come hang with us in the trendy east end! No need to drive. Right on Queen Street streetcar line (goes all night). Everyone is welcome - let's all play together! - but this is an exclusive event at this venue. Club is only open to our ticket purchasers! This is an intimate venue so buy early and often. :) Maggie and Heather's first foray into a cabaret plus party kind of evening. It shouldn't suck! :-) NOTE: No one under 19 years old will be admitted ONLINE TIX: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/138047
Six Live Xmas Shows With Lea DeLaria - Dec 2-11th!
You Better Watch Out!
That's no threat people (geez, just cuz we're Italian, you racists) - it's the name of our Xmas Show!
The musical, maniacal, mental variety show starring stand-up jazz diva Lea DeLaria and sit down current events comic Maggie Cassella, hits the road for six shows starting December 2nd!
A combination sketch, stand-up, jazz vocal, and Glee infused stampede, You Better Watch Out! is a bit like watching the old Carol Burnett show on Ex.
Find out the true meaning of “the spirit of Xmas” when the butch and butcher girls set out to raise money for the tykes, enjoy the cool swingin’ jazz of Lea’s dulcet tones, then sit back and let the spew wash over you for Maggie’s Because I Said So “Year in Revile”, and of course, learn the real story of the Magi as performed by Lea and Maggie complete with show choir song and dance moves.
And as luck would have it, You Better Watch Out! Is happening just as Lea’s new swinging jazz Xmas CD is being released. So you’re in for some extra special holiday tuneage performed like you’ve never heard them performed before.
