Kevin is one of Atef’s 5 Children. He is 27 years old & has an undergraduate degree from Wilfrid Laurier University & currently enrolled in a postgraduate program at George Brown College in Digital Media Marketing. These are his stories (actually his favourite things about working at S&R as a teenager)… Click this link to understand my reference then continue reading the rest of the article
The first year he worked at Sin & Redemption was 2009.
Started back in the kitchen cleaning dishes, taking about the garbage & doing
light food prep. His biggest passion was peeling potatoes & using the Winco
Fry Blade. Nothing was more satisfying than that. He would even bring friends
from school & show them how cool this was. Peeling, cutting & blanching
fresh potatoes made him feel like a real adult. At 16 years old it is hard to
believe that someone would brag about this part of their job, but for some odd
reason – he did.
This is exactly what the cheesecake & Belgian
Frites look like. YOU HAVE TO “FRY” THEM!
Now the feeling of working & being rewarded financially for the work you put in is usually a sensation that everyone enjoys but to Kevin the real reward was getting to eat good food whenever he wanted. It contributed to the weight gain over the next two years but nevertheless the Belgian Frites & the cheesecake at S&R were rewards that money could never match. When you’re working hard Kevin thinks that many people almost forget to eat but food is one of the most important aspects to living a healthy life. But that caramel chocolate cheesecake is hard to forget about even when you’re working hard.
When you think of garage doors you probably think of a house. For Kevin Sin & Redemption was another home. Spending all of his free time trying to make extra money & learn what he could in the kitchen. It surely extended to real life at university being able to cook some pretty good food. He really enjoyed the breaks sitting at the bar & having the garage doors open behind him. A really unique atmosphere to feel inside & outside at the same time; a big perk of being an employee or customer at S&R.
Even though Kevin didn’t get to drink & doesn’t drink much to this day but he really enjoyed the fact that every beer has its own designated glass. It was like looking at art every single time the bartender would pour that Belgian beer into that beautiful tulip Delirium glass. A true art, works out well as you can go directly from the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) straight to the next museum of Belgian & German beers.
The juxtaposition of the bar across the street from a church was really interesting location & knowing that people go to church on Sunday & other days of the week, we knew they would surely come to the bar to unwind. Hence Sin & Redemption. The best of both worlds. The church to redeem & the bar to sin, not for everyone though. The church was against the bar name at the beginning. Now they are some of our best customers.
We strive to provide the best selection of European beer & Schnitzels in the City!
