Christmas SPCA Day 2017 at Urban Deli

Today’s our annual SPCA Christmas, the day when we have a few friends and regular customers volunteer to be our servers as we give our staff some time off. They’ll be on the floor today till 3:00pm.

We usually do this Christmas Eve day but since that falls on Sunday this year, we’re doing it today. It’s our eighth (we think) Annual SPCA Christmas!

AND as our volunteers give serving a try, we’ll donate ALL the tips to one of our favourite charities — The Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue — fabulous people doing wonderful work. Our owner Liz and her husband John are big SPCA supporters, as is owner Gord, who has made significant donations to the cause.

Storm and Bear

Liz and John have made adoptions over the last few years: Whiskers (a cat), their beautiful dogs, Storm and Bear. They are hugely grateful for the work the SPCA does, their dedicated staff, the enthusiastic volunteers and everyone in Saint John that has adopted and given an animal a home. Kudos to everyone!

We hope we can send something their way today through the tips and donations. If you’re in the Uptown, drop in for a bite or just to say hello. Any donation you care to make will be gratefully accepted and keep in mind, any tip you give goes to the Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue.

We hope to see you! Follow us on Facebook. We’ll have some pics up and invite you to post your own in the comments. It should be a fun day!

It’s Crazy! We Just Turned Eight!

Yes, it’s our birthday – July 13. Urban Deli opened in the Uptown on this day in 2009 and we’ve been having a blast ever since.

As with every year since we’ve opened, we’ve been busy: with the restaurant and with the catering. Our menu changed a bit this year with some new additions. Most popular on the menu? How about …

  • meatloaf sandwich
  • montreal smoked meat
  • turkey club
  • sour cream lemon pie
  • carrot cake

Each year, we have so many people to thank it’s hard to know where to begin. We love and are tremendously grateful for our customers, and couldn’t ask for a better staff of people. What do our customers and staff have in common? They both make coming to work every day something to look forward to.

Thank you all so much! We hope to have another great year with all of you.

Our Annual SPCA Christmas Eve Day

Storm and John

Storm and John (John Mallory Fitness) remind us that a happy dog is an adopted dog and without the Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue animals like him would be without a friend.

It’s Christmas Eve day (24th), and we’re doing our annual thing (maybe our seventh year): Have a few friends and regular customers volunteer to be our servers as we give our staff some time off. They’re on the floor now till 3:00.

AND as they give serving a try, we’ll donate ALL the tips to one of our favourite charities — The Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue — fabulous people doing wonderful work. Our owner Liz and her husband John are big SPCA supporters, as is owner Gord, who has made significant donations to the cause.

Liz and John have made adoptions over the last few years: Whiskers (a cat), their beautiful dogs, Storm and Bear.

We hope to see you!
