Al Dente Italian Restaurant 39 Main Street

The Pubs and Restaurant list is provided as suggested locations for decade groups to meet. These businesses are independently owned and operated, and are not under the management of the reunion committee. However we are making arrangements with each pub to ensure they can accommodate our groups.

Angus Glen will host the after golf pub party and overflow for all other decades who run out of room. Last time the '70s and '80s both exceeded the pub capacities. Angus Glen has a great pub facility and they are more than happy to accommodate our groups. Angus Glen is located at 10080 Kennedy Rd., North-West corner of Kennedy and Major Mac.
