Hi. Happy Labour Day.

Fall is around the corner, and I am looking forward to it. Normally I'm not eager to wish the summer away, but I can sense how cozy it's going to be in Le Petit Bar come the cooler days and nights.

I can't wait to see the bar full of people, cozy in their sweaters and denim (my fall wardrobe is always my favourite!) with a glass of wine and a board of charcuterie. Some of you may be cursing me for wishing the colder weather upon us, but fall is inevitable, folks. And, it's my favourite time of year.

New warming cocktails, hearty reds and round whites are on the horizon. Can you see yourself in our front window with a warming cup of vin chaud (mulled wine)? We have ideas brimming over about how to offer comforting cooler-weather dishes from our 4'X4' kitchen, and we're brewing up apple & pear bitters for autumnal libations.

Come see us this month to enjoy the last of our summer wine list. Some real staff favourites right now include: 2011Birichino Vin Gris (a crisp, dry rose made from Grenache, Mouvedre, Cinsault and Rolle), 2011 Domaine Dampt et Fils Chablis (delicious unoaked Chardonnay from Burgundy) and 2009 Langmeil Valley Floor Shiraz (a Barossa beauty).

We're quickly making our way through the gorgeous artisan charcuterie from Les Cochons Tout Ronds, so hurry in! You really don't want to miss this stuff.

Hope to see you soon,
