Due to a scheduling conflict October’s HASK meeting will be held at The Red Stag (further details below) located in the famous Alexander Keith’s Brewery. The Red Stag delivers classic Nova Scotia hospitality with great food and cold draft beer. The outdoor rooftop patio, private function room, and historic landscape makes it the #1 spot for any patron or visitor to Halifax.
