The Spoke Club Book of The Month: Selection Day
Monday, Feb 27, 2017
This February the Book Club selection will be from Aravind Adiga, the bestselling, Booker Prize–winning author of The White Tiger. Selection Day is a wonderful new novel about two brothers in a Mumbai slum who are raised by their obsessive father to become cricket stars, and whose coming-of-age threatens their relationship, future, and sense of themselves. Filled with unforgettable characters from across India’s social strata, this book combines the best of The Art of Fielding and Slumdog Millionaire for a compulsive, moving story of adolescence and ambition, fathers, sons, and brothers.

St. Patrick’s Day
Friday, Mar 17, 2017
When St. Patrick’s Day happens to fall on a Friday, we say “Erin Go Bragh” and let our Irish pride shine. It’s lucky for us that Spoke Hour just happens to be the same day, so to celebrate we’re doing something special for that hour with a very on theme beverage. Come hungry because we’ll also have something for you to nibble on before you go out on the town and celebrate.

We always take pride in maintaining a sustainable menu and during Earth Hour this month, we’re really letting our love in all things local shine. We have a carefully curated menu of items that have been sourced 100 km or less from our city–all regional, all delicious. For that hour we’ll turn off the lights, have candles burning at every table and remember how thankful we are for this beautiful Earth of ours.
