Verne Andru 

Verne grew up during the dawn of the television era with its wacky worlds of Beatlemania and Bugs Bunny. While he dabbled in music and drawing, it wasn't until he met the crew from Captain Canuck Comics at a high school "career day" that he found his calling. He quickly became the studio pest, dropping by weekly to show off his latest. During this period he created the "Captain Cannabis" character and comic book, the first of many to come.

His career took off with his first paid job - cel painting on "Blowhard," a National Film Board animated short, followed by animation assignments for Hanna Barbera's Saturday morning line-up. He continued in comics illustrating stories for Phantacea, doing ink and colour on Captain Canuck, cover art for Charleton and inking for Marvel.

Working on Nelvana's "Rock & Rule" animated feature Verne bridged old with new - on the one hand he was privileged to work alongside masters Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnson, two of Walt Disney's 9 wise men, while at the same time he was designing leading-edge computer-controlled visual effects with Industrial Light and Magic.

Verne then turned his focus to advertising and marketing in Toronto and Vancouver. He provided the creative behind a number of high-tech success stories including 'Simply Accounting,' one of the best selling small business accounting brands, and the successful Pigtronix musical instrument effects. As CEO of Virtual Access he produced a range of content for web and broadcast, including the highly successful "Kid's Club" TV spots for Swedish furniture retailer, IKEA.

Today Verne is using his advanced skills on the release of his Captain Cannabis comic book and film series. Combined with current relaxation of cannabis attitudes, it is destined to become Verne's Ultimate Hit!

Wings Restaurants & Pubs is a local staple for good times and even better food. Now, they're winging in that same quality food to the outdoors, in their Wings Outdoor Grill food truck.

Although the menu features a wide variety of all American classics, the wings are where it's at. And they are by no means average. Wings Outdoor Grill offers up an impressive 25 homemade sauces to smother their wings in, from sweet Thai and Canadian maple bourbon to savory Tokyo teriyaki and outback BBQ.



Kafka's Coffee on Wheels is a full-service cafe. They serve espresso based drinks, filter coffee, tea, nitro cold brew, lemonade, breakfast sandwiches and pastries fresh from their Great Northern Way location.

Kafka's coffee is roasted weekly to ensure freshness. They brew each cup of coffee and tea individually, and with great care. They precisely prepare their beverages to provide clarity of flavour. Kafka's pastry case is a hand-crafted collection of both savory and sweets that will appeal to anyone's taste buds.

You can expect the same craft on the truck as you would at their cafes.

Kafka Coffee


REEL Mac and cheese offers gourmet, made from scratch macaroni and cheese with a variety of movie themed menu items.

They serve up inspired comfort food made from scratch right on the truck. They start with real butter, add whole milk, select spices and seven different cheeses, the result is creamy deliciousness.
