Fall Brunch at Chill Winston

We’re always looking forward to enjoying brunch on the weekends. Chill Winston is offering brunch service every Saturday, Sunday and holiday Monday from 10am-2pm. There are plenty of fresh and local offerings to try. The weekend menu has a range of reinterpreted breakfast classics including handmade bison burger, house-smoked turkey club, chicken hash and omelets made with free-range eggs. Check here to view their weekend brunch menu.


Aperitivo Hour at Pourhouse


An after-work cocktail will be more enticing than ever. Pourhouse is now hosting ‘Aperitivo Hour’ featuring three aperitifs and three cocktails (on special) and exclusive menu items – all available Monday to Friday, 2pm-5pm. Their cocchi americano, carpano bianco, Milano Torino and Negroni are a few ‘happy hour’ drinks to add to your pre-dinner ritual. Visit here for more details by Scout Magazine.
