The lazy, hazy, crazy (and artful) days of Summer…


Well, folks, that’s the way it has been on the Salamanders patio ever since the rainy season finally stopped and the sun came out – with a vengeance. The patio is packed with sun worshippers and those folks that are solar averse find refuge in the cool inside on the family or the bar side at Salamanders.

Our regular guests have noticed and commented on the beautiful art that has been a feature of Salamanders for quite some time now. Every month or so, a new set of Artists in Residence come in and display their considerable talents. We are now proud to announce that on Saturday, 20 July, 2019, there will be an Al Fresco Vernissage at Salamanders, featuring the considerable talent of members from the North Grenville Arts Guild. Ok, so for folks that are linguistically challenged, “Al Fresco” is the Italian for “outside”; and “Vernissage” is the French that literally means “varnishing”, originally referring to the day prior to an exhibition when artists were allowed to retouch and varnish their works of art. A goodly number of artists will be participating from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm (or later if we are still receiving folks). We will be featuring a special menu that day, for those who want to drink or have lunch and some nibbles for those just passing through on the way to Kemptville Live. We will be serving Blue Gypsy wines that day as well, particularly Louis Gal’s cool refreshing Cranberry wine – simply delicious! Also and in addition to showing her art, Mary Moore – of considerable renoun - will be providing musical entertainment for the event.

Speaking of Kemptville Live, we are usually run off our feet that entire week, i.e. from Wednesday to Sunday, July 17 to 21, so please don’t forget to give us a quick call to reserve your favourite table inside or outside. It’s simple: just punch in 613-258-2630 and let us know that you are comin’ our way. Kemptville Live is THE premier summer event in Kemptville.

And all you kayak, canoe and small boat enthusiasts, you might follow the example of some of our guests and use the Reach and the municipal dock to paddle or motor in, partake of refreshment and begone back down towards the Rideau River. It makes for a great day of fun and frolic.

Come one, come all: it’s Summer at Salamanders!
