Nice to See You: Sidewalk Opening!

Friday May 31st, 2013
12 - 3 pm
100 – 100A street & Jasper Avenue

Jasper Avenue revitalization and LRT repairs may not be complete (work continues on the South side of the street), but speaking from the North side of Jasper Avenue...


Some of us were here before Jasper Avenue looked like something out of a war zone. Studio J, Design Group and Crepe Symphony are happy to be seeing the light after such a long haul. Also during the madness, several brave entrepreneurs opened their doors well hidden from sight. The Underground Tap and Grill, Ricci Hair Co. and De Dutch Pannekoek House would love to make a formal introduction.

We are inviting you to drop by between 12 and 3 pm for tasty samples, product deals, nail polishing and information on all that we have to offer.

If you haven't already, you can also take a closer look at the 1st phase of Jasper Avenue's fabulous revitalization. We're all looking forward to seeing everything when the iconic street is complete.

Grand Opening Party! Jasper Avenue - Saturday, May 24, 2008

grand opening celebrations

Although Studio J officially moved into our new digs on January 22, 2008, it took some time to prepare for a great event. Guests enjoyed refreshments, snacks... and marvelous prizes -- including a spa day for two, dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House and a night at The Union Bank Inn.

#9 - Studio J's Signature Martini

I designed this martini with the help of tasters - Brian & Ida Kaliel and Mark Kandborg. I had 10 martinis lined up for tasting and # 9 was the winner.


1 1/2 oz. cherry brandy (#9 was made with the brandy that the cherries
soaked in for my mothers famous chocolate dipped cherries)
1/2 oz. soho
1 oz. pomegranate & black currant juice
splash of lemon

Stir or shake with ice, and I personally like to garnish with a pitted lychee.

*Just a note*
On the evening of the Grand Opening, it was premixed in large quantity and there was a tiny bit of sparkling water added to the glass (not shaken).

Also, you can replace the cherry brandy with 1 oz. of raspberry vodka for another option. Also really, really good!
