Welcome to

Invite

Welcome to the third issue of Invite. When we started our little magazine here in the Port City, we envisioned an entertainment magazine that people could pick up and read about all the great venues in Saint John. As time has passed our magazine is taking a little pivot. Our team spends a lot of time on the streets talking to business owners and residents of this wonderful city, and a lot of them have some great stories about Saint John that they want to share with you. So, going forward we will be sharing stories of positive experiences residents have had in the Greatest Little City in the East. Think of this as more of a lifestyle magazine inviting you to everything Saint John has to offer.

Students have been educating local Elementary School Students in proper flossing and brushing, as well as participating in the West Side 50 Plus Wellness Day. In May, our College will be conducting a Patient Care Clinic for the public, by appointment only. These procedures include examinations, radiographs, polishing, fluoride, and pit and fissure sealants.

Competencies include theory and practical components, where applicable. Students are also afforded the opportunity to be supervised by local Dentists in practice. In the final month of the program, students complete a four-week practicum in a dental office approved by the college. Upon successful completion of program requirements, students are eligible to proceed with the final examinations to become Certified Level II Dental Assistants.

Mexicali Rosa’s! M

exicali Rosa’s, opened in May of 1991 by Paul Grannan, continues to be owned and operated by the Grannan family. From the moment the doors opened, “Mexi’s” has been a festive California style Mexican restaurant, introducing guests to a taste of Mexican flair. Donna Wallace accurately captures the essence of Mexi’s in her description of opening night, “The first night we opened Mexicali Rosa’s, people were lined up out the door. The atmosphere was festive with Mexican music playing and guests drinking margaritas and excited about trying new dishes.” Indeed, Mexi’s introduced Saint John to the tastes and sounds of a Mexican atmosphere. As Chris Grannan fondly recalls, “I remember when Mexi’s opened, no one had heard of salsa, let alone buying it in the stores. Now, salsa sells out like ketchup in the grocery stores. I guess Dad knew what he was doing!” Twenty years after opening its doors, Mexi’s continues to be a formidable entertainment institution, entertaining guests and providing exceptional service all year round. In 1999, Mexi’s was the first restaurant on Prince William Street to open a sidewalk patio during the summer season. Today’s guests continue to enjoy the themed sidewalk patio during summer months. Mexi’s is known by locals for its long-standing traditions. Many may be familiar with the entertaining tradition known as the “Ole Sombrero Birthday Song”. If you haven’t experienced this rite of passage on your birthday, then you’ve certainly missed out! Another famous tradition hosted by Mexi’s is “Margarita Monday”, when guests can stay late enjoying live entertainment and specials on Margaritas ($5.50) and Nachos. And don’t forget the “Late Nite Special”! This long-standing tradition includes a pitcher of draft and wings or nachos – still the best deal in town at only $11.99! Satisfied customers return year after year, establishing and enjoying traditions of their own.

If lunch or dinner is more your style, then consider the Lime Chipotle Chicken ($8.95) with a hardy side of beans and rice. This highlight of Mexi’s bountiful menu comes beautifully presented with a grilled chicken breast on top of a bed of rice, covered in chipotle sauce, and then topped with melted Monterey Jack cheese with slices of lime as garnish. The rice is colorfully flavored with a tangy tomato base, the chicken seasoned and tender, and the cheese deliciously stringy and gooey. The chipotle sauce is perfectly smoky. On the side, enjoy blended pickled jalapeno peppers. Aside from providing exceptional service and entertainment to dining guests, Mexi’s is also proudly involved with local community sports teams. The restaurant sponsors a variety of teams, including volleyball, soccer, hockey, and many more. Fun and festive, cheerful and alive – the atmosphere at Mexi’s helps create fond memories when teams come in to celebrate that special accomplishment, or just to build team spirit. Mexi’s is located in its original space at 88 Prince William Street, in the heart of Historic Saint John. Mexicali Rosa’s is part of the Grannan Hospitality Group which also includes Grannan’s Seafood Restaurant, Churchill’s Pub and Church Street Steakhouse. Drop by Mexi’s today and experience all the restaurant has to offer. To make a reservations, call (506) 672-DINE (3463) or, for more information, please visit www.grannanhospitalitygroup.com.
