Preview + Giveaway: Family Feast at The Rec Room (Enter to win $150 Gift Card)

Family Feast - The Rec Room Edmonton

When I tell Mike we’re going to The Rec Room, or I want to go to The Rec Room, his reaction is always: “Oh, I love The Rec Room!” We both do. Since opening its first location in South Common last year (2016), followed by its more recent West Edmonton Mall spot, The Rec Room has become a pretty great place for food and entertainment in our city. 

There are multiple restaurants and bars, private dining rooms, and a ton of amusement games, along with live musicians, comedians, and karaoke, all in one building. 

The Rec Room has done a solid job always having some kind of entertainment happening in its building, whether it’s showing a game, hosting a trivia night, having live bands perform, launching a brunch menu, or putting on their upcoming Family Feast event taking place Sunday, Nov. 12 starting at 6 p.m.

FAMILY FEAST AT THE REC ROOM

This culinary event takes place in one of The Rec Room’s many private rooms. For $35, you get pickle brined fried chicken, your choice of a selection of sides including smashed fried potatoes, mixed greens, crispy brussel sprouts, and black pepper gravy, and apple crisp for dessert, served family-style. Think of it like Sunday Dinner! 

This is the first Family Feast event The Rec Room has done. They really wanted to showcase their culinary offering in a fun and social way so featuring some of Fall menu favourties served family style felt like a fun way to do it. The West Edmonton Mall location is also a Family Feast on Nov. 26! If these events are successful, The Rec Room will look at doing similar culinary feasts, different seasonal menus, more often!

After you’re done eating, you’re of course welcome to take in all the activities and entertainment The Rec Room has to offer! Mike and I will be going and can’t wait to eat and play some games. Join us at the event by reserving your tickets via email.

CLICK TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT AT THE FAMILY FEAST

I’m partnering with The Rec Room to help promote their Family Feast event, and am excited to give away a $150 The Rec Room gift card (so if you go to the feast, you’re really set for post-dinner games and activities!)

    We haven’t been yet, which is quite surprising as my bf LOVES playing games. I hope they’ve got a car racing game for me to try — those are the only ones I am remotely good at!

  • Laurie Keindel

    We visited the Rec Room when it 1st opened and did ylthe full date night experience. The servers were friendly with suggestions and helped us do a selfie when the food came! The game area was clean and fun. We ended with a caramel bacon donut. Fun place for a large group!

    I have NEVER been to the Rec Room………not yet! I have seen tons of postings about the food, so obviously, that will be my first choice! I would try the wood fired pizzas from The Loft, next might be The Pumps from The Shed and then I would def have to try and make my way through the draft meno at Three10. Hopefully, I won’t fall into a food coma, so that I can play some games too!

  • Diane

  • Anika

    I’ve been to the South Common and West Edmonton locations and love the types of games they have that adults don’t really get the chance to play anymore. The wristband aspect is effective and they look good. Plus the prize shop is one of the best parts!

    Virtual Reality is so much fun if you haven’t tried it! An hour goes by and it feels like nothing! :)

    I’ve been there once with adult friends and once with one of my sons. It’s such a fun place to visit and I was surprised that the food was delicious. Even if my 8 year old beats me at EVERY game, like he did at our visit, I need to go back with both with both of my kids. It would be a fun night out for us.

  • ROSE

    I am always looking for great places to go in Edmonton and The Rec has lots to offer.

Bündok is a pretty cool place on 104 Street, serving up delicious and beautifully-plated food. Their brunch menu includes both bistro and brunch options. There's french toast, eggs benny, omelettes and sausages, but the bistro dishes are my favourite - like sea bream crudo and chicken liver. Yuuuum!! Although this giveaway is for brunch, you also have to try their regular lunch and dinner menu. Bündok's gnocchi is unbelievable. Bündok should most certainly be on your list for a visit!
