Hey, hockey fans! It’s the best time of the year again. That’s right, the Blues will be playing their very first home game of the season tonight, October 4, as they face off against the Winnipeg Jets. Maybe you’ll be going to the game to cheer on the home team. Or maybe you’ll watch the game from the comfort of your home. Either way, the 2018-2019 hockey season is a time to celebrate and hope for a Stanley Cup win this year, so it’s time to set the tone right with a party!
The month of August can mean a lot of different things. It signals the end of summer vacation and the beginning of the school year. But did you know that August is also officially National Sandwich Month?
Named after John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, in the late 1700s (yes, this is a real thing!), this popular lunchtime delicacy has been enjoyed for hundreds of years, so it’s only right that we dedicate one month of the year to celebrate it. And what better way than to savor new sandwich choices at McArthur’s Bakery?!
Check out our fresh, delicious menu selections below to celebrate National Sandwich Month right!

Congratulations! You’ve just gotten engaged! We have no doubts that you are beyond excited and are looking forward to your special day. Along with your wedding day, you should be able to enjoy yourself by celebrating with your family and friends in many other parties as well! And of course, a good party isn’t anything without good food – but where do you start? We’ve taken all of the tough work out of it for you! Here are some ideas of food you can serve at your engagement party, bridal shower, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and your wedding reception!
One of the greatest pleasures in life is sitting down and taking time to truly savor a delicious meal or a scrumptious snack. Some of the greatest memories we can build involve sharing a hearty meal with a good friend, celebrating a family member’s birthday or success with a sweet treat, or enjoying a piece of wedding cake at a close friend’s wedding reception. Unfortunately, we live in a society in which food can be seen as “good” or “bad.” We may shame ourselves (or others) if we were to allow ourselves to indulge in a piece of birthday cake or a donut for an event at work. We may ultimately see some of our favorite foods as “bad” and only feel worth if we only eat “good,” clean foods.
Your wedding cake should not only look beautiful, but it should also taste great! While you can definitely opt for low-key flavors like vanilla or chocolate wedding cake, why not get a little creative with your reception’s centerpiece?
Besides the tear-jerking vows, the gorgeous dress, and, of course, the happy newly-wed couple, our favorite thing about weddings is no doubt the sumptuous, decadent wedding cake! We’re not alone either – just about everyone looks forward to enjoying a piece of wedding cake at the reception, including your guests. The only trouble is finding the right size of cake that will both serve each guest and satisfy your tastes (and your wallet!).
The tradition of the groom’s cake can be traced back to the Victorian era in England. In those times, it was customary to have not only the main wedding cake, but also a groom’s cake and a smaller bride’s cake. The two smaller cakes were sliced and served to the groomsmen and bridesmaids at the end of the wedding.
You’ve got the dress, secured the venue, and have a sizeable guest list that you’re working on for your wedding. Have you decided on a cake yet?
