Over the last year my good friend Jared has transitioned into an incredible barber. I really love seeing people who are truly passionate about their craft with a burning need to constantly improve and perfect their process. Jared set up a makeshift barbering setup in his apartment and invited me and our bud Mike over for a chill sesh, some drinks and a quick trim. The light coming from a couple tall windows shining into his place was perfect and worked perfect to give me a soft but contrasty light to work with. If you're in Charlottetown, PEI and are looking for a dope barber, you can find Jared cutting at Humble Barber in Charlottetown. Special thanks to Suavacito Pomade and Peace Collective for sending some of the things featured in these shots.
I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. We had a great little Canada Day keg party in Charlottetown at one of our friends parents beautiful home at the end of the boardwalk at Victoria Park. We had a great view of the fireworks and the Upstreet beer was flowing all night. Our bud Phil Enserink from East Cape Oyster Company brought shucked some of his best "Sand Dunes" oysters that he brought for everyone. All in all it was a great night, super underwhelming fireworks considering the Canada 150 thing and being in the birthplace of confederation and all but it never broke our spirits.
One of my favourite communal foods is hands down southern BBQ. My buddy Spencer spent 8 months designing and welding this insane custom smoker for our day one homie and chef extraordinaire Nigel Thompson. Spencer and his fiancé Abby were nice enough to allow Nigel to throw a super dope summer BBQ party which featured the Sneaky Cheats smoker at their home in Charlottetown. Nigel and friends cooked up some mind blowing slow and low smoked pork, chicken, salmon and some mind melting steaks to fulfill everyones imbibing needs. Nigel topped off the night of drinking with a mouth watering (literally) smoked Bologna sandwich platter which was chopped up in to personal slices and disappeared in a whole 10-seconds (I think I got a bite of somebodys). All in all there were plenty of incredible food, refreshing drinks, lots of wu-tang and some great friends made for a very warming PEI house party.
