Sheepdogs Concert at Echo Beach

Last weekend Canadian Club treated Mum, Jenie and to the Sheepdogs concert. These are some of official event photos.  The T-List crew was in full force and we joined the band at Cadillac lounge for drinks after the show. Super nice guys.


Thank you Praxis for a great time. Mum had an awesome  birthday and it was  night we’ll never forget.








T-List Night Out @ Echo Beach

Good morning, good morning! Had a great weekend with the fams and all my besties. Cooked food for the week last night. Started a new book. Cleaned the house. Had a great sleep and woke up early. I’ll share the pro photos from the meet & greet with The Sheepdogs when I get them. Mum read us their Rolling Stone article as we were getting ready to head to the show. Hung out with the band at Cadillac Lounge after too. It was a heap of fun. Here’s some tweets from our crew. Big thank you to Praxis PR & Canadian Club for showing us a great time.

Pass the Courvoisier: BBQ Chicken & Cognac Cursed Peaches

The other day we had a BBQ inspired by Courvoisier as part of a their current Courvoisier Challenge contest. I must give credit where due because I was in charge of the cognac and Barbie did all the cooking. I’m no chef! It turned out REALLY tasty so I asked her to share the recipes. I took the peach photos.

If you are a budding chef, go get a bottle and cook something! The Courvoisier Collective Culinary call for Submissions ends Friday, August 24th. Visit or for details.  There are cash prizes and trips to Toronto.

You can copy the recipes below if you like!


BBQ Chicken with Cognac

Blend the following together:

  • 3 Inches Fresh Ginger
  • One Small Papaya
  • Honey to taste
  • Courvoisier by free pour
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt
  1. Marinate the chicken: Put chicken breast strips in a container or bowl. Generously pour marinade over the chicken; let sit for several hours, the longer the better.
  2. BBQ the drunken chicken:Brush grill with oil and put chicken pieces on the grill. Turn frequently and bbq till fully cooked. Enjoy tender chicken with whatever side your heart my desire – I recommend a spicy fried rice to offset the sweetness in the chicken.

 Cognac Cursed Peaches

  1. Buy a variety of peaches to make it interesting. Cut peaches in half and remove pits.
  2. In a bowl mix together 3 parts Courvoisier to 1 part honey. Add ground cinnamon to taste.
  3. Place peach halves in large Ziploc bag(s). Pour cognac marinade into the bag. Let the peaches soak up this marinade for a few hours, at least one hour before cook time.
  4. Brush the grill with oil. BBQ peaches on the grill, 5-7 minutes on each side or until you can easily press a fork into the flesh. Leftover marinade can be drank, as it’s delicious, or poured over the fully cooked peaches. Serve peaches with a side of your favourite ice cream or pie.

This Courvoisier Peach Nectar WAS AMAZING!


Media Dinner at Church Aperitivo Bar

I wasn’t sure what Italiam sashimi was but I love Italian food so I was in. The meal at Church was excellent and I tried a few things I’d never had before.  My notes are not nearly as neat near the end as I’m sure I drank a bottle of wine to myself.

Italian sashimi is cut thinner than traditional sashimi and comes served with toppings. I appreciated this because although I enjoy eating raw fish, sometimes it’s cut too thick at Japanese places and I struggle to get it down my throat then spit it out in a napkin. I know that’s gross but it’s true ok! I can’t be alone here?

I felt pretty great because they had a section ready and a personalized menu. Thanks guys!

#OSHEAGA! Day one!

Hi guys! Matt here, live from Osheaga in Montreal for casiestewart.comThe festival has been great so far. Lots of sun, some clouds, good food (but looooong lines), and most importantly, unreal music! And now, I present to you:

OSHEAGRAM: Osheaga by instagram – The festival told through nice photos.


Rue St. Cathrines. Super festive. Reminds me of Church Street in Toronto.


Watching fun. from the side! The crowd knew every word and head banged to Some Nights.


This is Yukon Blonde jamming out. Such a solid indie rock group. Definitely a highlight.

This is me drinking beer. Enough said.




Down With Webster was my favourite part of the day. Those dudes know how to bring it. They tossed beer cups into the crowd and got us jumping to every beat.


Franz Ferdinand! I’ve been waiting to see these guys for years and they did not disappoint! Playing a combination of new & old tunes they were a blast and a half.


And finally – Justice. What can you say about two dudes who make such awesome music and put on some of the most amazing shows ever?  Can’t do ’em Justice. (lololololol)


The sun started setting and Sigur Ross came out. Their smooth, dreamy melodies had everyone in a daze. Such an experience.


Here’s to hoping day 2 is even better than 1.Check out my Twitter and Instagram feeds (matttnificent) for live Osheaga updates!

Cheers n beers,
