THE ANNUAL LE BURGER WEEK

partners for the first time with United Way

September 1st to September 7th

 

 

Winnipeg’s Le Burger Week, presented by Saputo and now in its seventh year, will present 120 restaurants featuring new and fan favourite burgers, from September 1st through September 7th, all in support of the community and its charity partner, United Way.

 

A partnership whereby $1 dollar for each burger sold goes to feed thousands of hungry kids across the city at United Way Winnipeg agencies.

 

In 2012, Charcoal Collaborative, a Winnipeg-based food blog, who, alongside running Le Burger Week and La Poutine Week, seeks to promote the culinary scene in Winnipeg, was approached by Le Burger Week to organize the culinary event here in their city.

 

As the festival is set to kick-off, participants can expect to participate in voting of their favourite burgers similar to some of last year’s winners: The Krakow Burger (Brazen Hall & Kitchen Brewer),  Burgers, Beets, Battlestar Galactica (Nuburger Stradbrook) and The Purple Rain ( The Grove Pub & Restaurant).

For those who have never experienced the festival, organizers share a few tips: attend as a group, try many burgers and experience as many new restaurants as possible, and wear your comfy pants!

We all have that one main person in our lives that deserves something extra special around the holiday season – a spouse, partner, parent, work husband/wife, or best friend. From being by your side during the biggest milestones of your life, to being your scotch sipping partner when you needed it the most, crossing them off your holiday shopping list this year will be as simple as raising a dram!  

 

This year, give the main person in your life the gift of luxury, style and prestige with a bottle of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old. Boasting notes of creamy butterscotch with a hint of apple, candied orange, vanilla custard, and newly felled oak, it truly is winter in a bottle! 

 

The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old marries the classic Macallan style and the unmistakable sweetness of American oak; aged in 100% sherry-seasoned European and American Oak casks, the liquid comes together as a harmonious single malt with a warm character. Hailing from one of the most respected single malt distilleries in the world, sharing a bottle of The Macallan this holiday season with that special someone in your life will not soon be forgotten. 

 

The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old is available in liquor stores across Canada and retails for approx. $100.

Toronto, ON (August 13, 2019) - Givex, the cloud-based customer engagement solution that helps to streamline business operations from end-to-end, announced today a partnership with the Winnipeg Football Club that sees its point-of-sale (POS) and loaded ticket technologies, deployed stadium-wide at the team’s IG Field for the 2019 season.

 

Givex’s POS system is being deployed to 166 stations and 27 hand-held tablets across the stadium’s concessions, corporate suites and VIP lounge. The conversion to Givex’s fully integrated, cloud-based platform allows stadium staff to better, and more quickly, service the venue’s 33,000 guests on game days and at special events.

 

“We’re always looking for ways to improve the fan experience at our games,” said Wade Miller, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club. “By introducing these technologies into the stadium, we’ve been able to process orders faster at concessions along with being able to provide pre-loaded ticket offers for our fans.  To date, the success has been two-fold by providing our fans a better game day experience and unique ticketing offers while making it easier for our great game day concession staff to serve our fans. After several successful games with Givex, we’re really excited to expand the use of their solutions going forward.”

 

This partnership also brings Givex’s loaded ticket technology - Uptix, to stadium goers. The Winnipeg Football Club will be adding stored value funds to certain ticket packages, allowing ticketholders to scan their tickets to pay at concessions.  

 

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Winnipeg Football Club to implement some of our most popular technologies into a major Canadian stadium,” said Givex CEO, Don Gray. “We’ve seen how integrated technology systems have improved fan satisfaction and improved the bottom line for both teams and stadiums in other markets and are excited to bring this tech to IG Field.”
