Watch all your favorite sports games at Carvery Kitchen on our big screen TV!

Last night was the 89th annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Held at the Dolby Theatre right off Hollywood Blvd, the event is watched worldwide. The Academy Awards is also a great excuse for many to throw their own Oscar themed viewing parties. It’s a great time to bring all your friends and family together. Common at Oscar theme parties is to make predictions, drink champagne, enjoy hors d' oeuvres, and bask in the revelry of the Hollywood’s most glamorous night.


Theme Parties

Academy Awards theme parties, just like many held at your own homes yesterday evening, are one of the reasons catering exists. We want everyone to know that Carvery Kitchen caters to all events. This includes everything from a theme party to a backyard barbecue to corporate events…you get the idea. Champagne and cheese for a bridal shower? Wedding catering? Kid’s party? Baby shower? We’re spreading the word - we’ve got you covered for catering to all of life’s events. 

Now that we officially have our liquor license we can throw fantastic parties for our patrons. Currently our beer list includes Leffe Blonde Belgian Pale Ale, Fat Tire, Lagunitas IPA, Red Stripe, and Stella Artois. Last week we did a little bit of wine tasting and selected several different varieties to choose from.




Our wine selections include a Chardonnay from Cline Cellars, a Pinot Noir from Acacia Vineyars, a Kuma Malbac, a Layer Cake Wines Cabernet Sauvignon, a brut wine, and a Moscato that has yet to be determined. We will now be offering weekend brunch whereby you can pick up a glass of orange juice and a small bottle of sparkling brut wine to make your own mimosas right at the table. This will run from opening (10am) to afternoon (3pm).

Tips on Staying Sane this Valentine’s Day

                Whether you love it, hate it, or merely tolerate it, there’s no denying that February 14th is fast approaching. You see the evidence at the supermarket, with entire isles decorated in red and pink hues. Your spam folder is filled with deals on for items such as boxes of chocolates and flower deliveries. Oh and if you’re thinking of taking your significant other out for dinner on the 14th be prepared for the overpriced menus and pre-fix menus. We understand the struggle, the pressure, and hereby offer some alternative options that will hopefully make this upcoming holiday a little bit easier to handle.

Don’t Go Out

                Trust us on this one. While everyone needs to eat and food is an important factor of any Valentine’s game plan, it’s just not worth it. Restaurants tend to be overly packed to the point where there’s hardly any room between your table and the those adjacent to it – hardly romantic when you feel like you’re practically dining right along with the strangers next to you. That new restaurant you’ve been meaning to try? Pick literally any other day to do so. Instead, order in. Get delivery. Get take out. Find your favorite menu items from Carvery and stock up as though you’re preparing for the impending zombie apocalypse. You can still have a great candlelit dinner with a great meal from the comfort of your own home and avoid the madness out there in the outside world on that day.

Go ahead and grudgingly brave the Supermarket…and the Florist

                As a compromise to not going out, hit up the supermarket and the local florist and stock up on some traditional Valentine’s day goodies. Get the flowers, get the chocolates, and present your partner with a thoughtful trinket. Oh and get some wine. No forget that - get a lot of wine. Or if you don’t like wine get whatever your usual purchase is from the liquor isle, you’ll need it. Put the phones away and unplug from social media. Have a film picked out to watch after dinner. Make sure it’s something both of you will enjoy and make sure the ending is a happy one. You don’t want to risk feeling depressed on what’s supposed to be a happy day, regardless of what your personal feelings are about the holiday. Then let the libations pour and feel the stress leave your body as you relax comfortably on the couch.

Single? We’ve got you covered too

Girls, time to organize a girls night in with a movie marathon, tons of food, cosmos, and ice cream. Guys, grab some cases of beer and get your best buds together for some serious video game action. Call Carvery Kitchen, get a head count for how many people you expect, and order your favorite dishes to enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Don’t feel like staying in? Get your squad together and find a nice comfy dive. Many venues hold singles only events to give those without a significant a reprieve from all the lovey dovey couples that will be out and about.

Most importantly, remember it’s one day out of the year. Breathe. In 24 hours it will be but a distant memory and life will be back to normal. Oh and one final pro tip – get to your local drugstore/supermarket early the next and snag those super discounted bags of leftover Valentine’s day candy. Enjoy.
