Join the big party in Richmond or order a ready made party to go

While it’s not listed on any official holiday calendars, Superbowl Sunday is the biggest day of the year for many sports fans. It’s no different for us, so this year the Two Chefs and a Table and Big Lou’s Butcher Shop team is going all-out with  year to offer multiple ways to enjoy the big day with us.

The first is to join us for our first ever Superbowl Party at the new Two Chefs Richmond location. Your $20 ticket gets you your first beer and an all-game buffet of our homemade favourites like Big Lou’s hot dogs, Two Chefs Mac & Cheese, Wings, Pemberton Meadows Sliders and Burgers, Meat Hook Chili and salty snacks.

We’ll be offering drink and beer specials along with game day fun like a Wii Gol tournament, squares and a 50/50 draw. We’re even making transportation easy with bus ride to and from Two Chefs Richmond for an extra $15. There’s lots of room to make yourself comfortable and watch the game on our big screens at Two Chefs Richmond and we’ll make sure that you’re well fed and that you get home safely.

If you’re planning a house party, we’re going to offer the same range of delicious home made game food in our Superbowl Feast catering package.  This well-rounded package of favourites just require a little heating to be ready to serve.

We’re celebrating with a week of giveaways next week!

Time really does fly and it seems unbelievable that we’ll shortly be celebrating one great year of business in Big Lou’s Butcher Shop. The calendar doesn’t lie and so we’re gearing up and looking forward to celebrating the Anniversary next week.

Looking back, we’re very proud of the way that we’ve been embraced and accepted over the year by our Railtown neighbourhood and the city. Not only have we been able to serve our neighbours and locals, but we’ve also become a destination for people all over Vancouver looking for our specialty items like grass-fed beef from Pemberton Meadows, ethically-raised poultry from local Fraser Valley farms and our wide range of housemade items like terrines, pates, sausages, turduckens. And, of course, our famous 2 foot Fungo hot dogs!

A lot of great stuff happened along the way: we introduced hundreds of Vancouverites to the art of butchery through our popular in-store butchery and sausage making classes, we hosted communal table dinners in the butcher shop and we provided fresh creations for restaurants and caterers across the City. Even our little deli sandwich counter got busier than we could have imagined winning rave reviews for our signature creations like the Bahn Mi, Porchetta, Big Lou-ongo Meatball and 1lb housemade Pastrami.

To thank our friends and customers, we’re kicking off a week of giveaways next week through our Facebook page and Twitter account (@biglousbutcher). Along with prizes like lunch for an office, we’ll be doing daily draws in partnership with our suppliers for a range of delicious products.

What exactly will we be giving away? You’ll have to follow to find out and enter!

So, thanks from the entire Big Lou’s Butcher Shop family for a great first year. We’re looking forward to many more years offering specialty meats and artisan butchery to our neighbourhood and city.
