Lets get a bit serious... Have any of our lovely customers been harassed/threatened/solicited by the men staying at Mission Services? Any other businesses in the area have problems with this? This has been an issue for us since we opened. Recently, it has gotten worse. At almost all hours of the day and night there is public drinking/intoxication, drug use, cat calls, sexist remarks, solicitation.. etc. Yesterday, our server was racially insulted twice and the comedy host was threatened and called a "faggot". I support social services but they need to be handled properly and I really don't think Mission Services is doing a very good job. What, if any, experiences have you had? I'd like to compile them before moving forward. Yours Truly Frustrated, Joel

Joel, any chance you are opening early today? Open Streets Hamilton is on and James St is closed.

I ❤ Hamilton (my Instagram specifically) is featured in July's issue of Canadian Living! So proud to represent Hamilton! It's always so hard to pick favourites but I namedrop Girl on the Wing, WORK, Cannon Coffee Co. and of course Supercrawl! They chose to include a photo of one of my fave murals by Lester Coloma on James North - photo by Lisa Vuyk!

WE'RE OPEN ALL WEEKEND! Easter or not, we'll be slinging beers and kimchi all weekend. Come out and enjoy a reprieve from the Garth Brooks traffic and parking nightmare. $5 cans of STASH from Collective Arts Brewing and $5 tallboys of Wellington Brewery (SPA, Arkell, Dark). If Tomorrow Never Comes, at least you can take solace in knowing that you've done The Dance with Friends in Low Places.

NYE, the day of disappointment. If you're like us, you've felt that pang of embarrassment, that sheer panic, and the cold, dark loneliness of not having special plans with special people. If you're like us, you've never taken a selfie on NYE to broadcast your complete and utter coolness to the world. Hey, maybe you've spent the night cowering in the basement just imagining all the pretty boys and girls you're not kissing because you weren't invited and now grade 7 is going to be REALLY HARD, MOM! WELL, TONIGHT, NONE OF THAT CHANGES! NOW ANNOUNCING OUR COOLEST OF THE UNCOOL CONTEST™! There is no winner, there is no prize, but--thankfully--there are NO losers. Wait, no, there are ONLY losers. There are no pressures, there is no champagne, there is NO KISSING, there are only the coolest of the uncool™... Only at WORK® TONIGHT: Regular business hours TOMORROW: CLOSED

Published WORK on 2015-12-31 14:41:43 GMT

So, we're gonna be closed today too. Don't worry kids, it's not your fault. Back open tomorrow for suresies!

THANKS FOR A GREAT YEAR! We're CLOSED for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but reopen on Boxing Day. We may or may not have something special planned for those of you who don't like to make a big deal of NYE. Since you don't like to make a big deal of it though... probably not.
