The Hollows and Ayden Collaboration Dinner

This Sunday (October 29th) The Hollows and Ayden had a collaboration dinner! I was lucky enough to be invited along to document the night (and taste the cocktails ;))

This blog is going to focus more on the life and times of The Hollows Family as a whole, instead of just the happening of Goldie's.

Started the night at the bar with these two talented beauties! Ian Miller bar manager of Ayden and Adrian Chappell bar manager of The Hollows.

Big thanks to these two for letting me photograph them and their food all night long! If you don't already know these two beauties I am sure you are aware of their amazing businesses in Riversdale. Jackson Wiebe is the owner of Collective Coffee  (make sure to check out the breakfast sandwiches at his Ave P loction!) and Julia Darling is the owner of High Noon Barber Shop!
