Friday: Caplansky’s opening party
Posted in: Uncategorized
It’s been a crazy couple of months for Toronto’s Caplansky’s deli. After a June opening, Zane Caplansky was flooded with so much demand that he ran out of meat and had to shut down twice. He’s since been written up in every local newspaper, been touted as a deli savior by fans and friends alike, and has even served Geddy Lee from Rush. He’s switched meat suppliers, faced rent hikes, and recently had problems with steamers, ovens, and staff. He’s also received near daily offers from investors, salesmen, and chefs. Oh, and he started a blog.
Ahh the life of a deli man. Great from afar, but often it’s far from great.
Which is why Friday night is special. With summer drawing to a close, Zane is going to open the doors of his deli-in-a-bar even further, cutting up smoked meat and letting the music fly with his official opening party. The festivities kick off at 7pm on Friday night (erev Shabbos no less), and will roll on until the cops bust the place up, the meat and beer run out, or some combination therein.
Besides his hand cured, hand cut, delicious smoked meat, Zane is promising top notch entertainment. Prior to his life as a deli man he was in the music business and you can expect free performances from Toronto rockers Major Maker, hipster soulster Steve Singh, and klezmer musical god Socalled. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
Unfortunately I will be in Cleveland this weekend (don’t ask) but you’d better get over there and rock out with some meat, a beer and Zane. Show up you fool!
