Seize the moment with Dan Aykroyd's National Caesar Day contest - Toronto SunThursday, April 12, 2018
My Girl….very proud of that award.”Aykroyd is also here to tell me all about his passion for his award-winning Crystal Head vodka, a unique brand manufactured in Newfoundland and Labrador that is one of the purest, made with “sweet peaches and cream corn grown in Chatham-Kent, Ont.,” and the pristine iceberg waters off Newfoundland and Labrador. The vodka is bottled in the iconic smiling glass skull, a vodka he founded with artist John Alexander back in 2007.“Crystal Head doesn’t have any additives, like glycerol, sugar or citrus oil. This is a very pure manufactured fluid, and I know bartenders around the world love it because it’s a blank canvas to which they add their own signature…gawd, I’d like to get a bottle into the hands of (actor) Jennifer Lawrence, given she’s a purist when it comes to enjoying a vodka martini,” added AykroydAykroyd is also involved with Caesar Day (which falls on May 17 this year) and a party being planned with a group of his buddies – that you can get invited to. “When I learned Canadians consumed more than 407 million Caesars last year alone and that a group of Caesar-loving Canadians created a day just to celebrate Canada’s Cocktail – I knew I wanted to be a part of it,” said Aykroyd.Now in its fourth year, the legendary actor is joining the team to create the official Caesar of 2018, which he calls the “The Hot Head Caesar,” a zesty take on the classic. Aykroyd blends fresh garlic, lime juice and Sriracha sauce with his own Crystal Head vodka and Mott’s Clamato – but what’s missing is the garnish. And that’s where you come in.Aykroyd is giving Canadians a chance to create a garnish worthy enough for his Caesar – and if you win, you get to enjoy the Caesar in person in Toronto with Aykroyd and his friends, on National Caesar Day, no less. Canadians from coast to coast can enter until May 2 – and yes, Dan will be judging – with the winner announced May 7.“A Caesar this great deserves something more inspired than a celery stalk,” said Aykroyd of his Hot Head Caesar. “I’ve seen Canadians create some spectacular garnishes over the years, so I want their help to choose the best one for my Caesar.”Personally, I’d go with something a little spooky – like a ghost pepper garnish. But that’s just me, after chatting with Dan.Check out GarnishDansCaesar.ca for more details. And may the best garnish win.CommentsShare your thoughtsDan Aykroyd Ghostbusters Let's block ads!

Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
