Sarah van den Hoogen-     Front House Manager      I have been with The Red Shoe since its opening with the Rankin sisters in 2005.  I was a server/supervisor for 6 years and have been on board as a front house manager for the last 6 years. I have a couple of favourite things about working at The Red Shoe. One is the awesome people I work with, I so enjoy seeing everyone working together as a team and the friendships that develop while there.  Another reason I love working at The Red Shoe is the people that visit.  Guests come from far and wide to experience the culture and atmosphere of the shoe, and they appreciate so much the talent we have at our fingertips here in Cape Breton.  It still amazes ME the amount of culture and talent that oozes out of the people of Cape Breton and is showcased at The Red Shoe on a daily bases.

   Becky Rankin-     Server      I grew upin Rankinville in Mabou andhave been a server at "The Shoe" for 4 years now. My favourite thing about working at here is seeing people from near and far appreciating the music and culture the we are lucky enough to have around us everyday.

   Heidi Wambolt-      Server      I came to Mabou last year to spend a month with my grandparents. The four weeks were almost up and I had a job to return to in Halifax, but I wasn't ready to leave. I wandered into the Shoe inquiring about hiring. After sending Angie a resume I came back to Halifax not knowing what would happen next. I received a call from Angie asking to start work at the Shoe the next day, and that afternoon I was on a shuttle back to Mabou. What are the odds the cab driver escorting me to the shuttle would be wearing a Red Shoe t-shirt? I took it was a good sign and knew it was the right decision. I am super excited to have a full season at the Shoe and be surrounded by the beauty of Cape Breton and lively culture!

   Cullen MacInnis-     Bartender      I was born and raised on Backstreet in Mabou, right across from The Red Shoe. I am super excited to be part of the Shoe's staff this summer, I was getting tired of mowing lawns and bringing dinner over to my brother Neil during his shifts (who bartended for three seasons at the shoe.) I think of "The Shoe" as a super lively place booming with culture. I look forward to meeting the tourists that come in along with all the regulars.

What I'm Looking forward to most this season is being able to spend my summer nights listening to Cape Breton Celtic music with the first-timers and eating more 'Perfect Pairs' than I can handle!

 Abbie Beaton-  Server   Living in Mabou, I am lucky to experience the warm and welcoming culture that is so heavily expressed here. It is especially noticeable when you walk through the doors of the Red Shoe Pub and that is why I am so excited for a busy season filled with delicious food, lively entertainment, and great company.
