On Thursday, June 11th I strode into B●Doggs Fine Street Foods and quickly saw the creative local entrepreneurial spirit continuing to thrive in Brantford.
Serving up deliciously elegant “street food” alongside craft beers from the area with some smooth live music for desert.
The patio, or “beer garden” is a great place to enjoy some live acoustic jams. It’s split into sections with greenery all around. There are plenty of tables and benches that surround the perimeter with a clear view of the performance area from any angle.
What makes one patio better than the next?
We believe it’s in the vibe, the tunes, the greenery and the name.
Doesn’t a “beer garden” sound much more inviting than “a patio?”
Ours is certainly worth a visit, or two or three.
Don’t be surprised if our play list jumps from a reggae one-drop to 80’s yacht rock or indie top hits.
Cory Mercer delivered some awesome original songs, along with a slew of great cover tunes.
Flowing through the genres, effortlessly switching from rock to folk, pop to alternative, again and again.
His melodic voice lent itself perfectly to any song.
Cory took a number of requests during his performance, including more Paul Simon than you could shake a stick at.
Unless you had a fairly large-sized stick, of course.
Cory had fun with the crowd, always friendly and engaging.
His bohemian style and attitude were perfectly aligned with the general vibe of the venue, very free-spirited.
His originals were beautiful hand-crafted songs straight from the heart, with plenty of hooks to keep the crowd grooving.
A great time, a great place, a great band. It was a damn great time for everyone.
It was also quite tremendous, wicked, exquisite, copacetic and excellent.
But mostly, it was great.
Every Thursday from 6pm – 10pm: live local music & fresh local cuisine at B●Doggs Fine Street Foods.

Folk rocker Chris Strei will be belting out his smooth originals and classic covers down at Manny’s, with possible special guests and a special announcement!
Be the first Strei fan to find out details about this year’s Strei Formal!
Chris has invited his fellow musicians to get up and jam (or marmalade) with him, anyone interested should get in touch, or surprise him the night of. Everyone loves surprises.
Sporting a slightly disheveled dedicated artist look, Chris Strei‘s smooth and vibrantly melodic voice lends itself beautifully to his pop-tinged folk rock originals.
Chris eats, sleeps and breathes music and it certainly shows. His commitment to the craft comes through in each composition, musical expressions of the vast tapestry of emotion and life experiences.
‘Wrong‘ written and composed by Chris Strei
