The Wolf of Wall Street
If you’ve been to East Village Pub + Eatery, you’ve most likely seen 34-year-old Owner & Operator, Mike Lambert. On a Saturday night, you might even find him there serving up drinks behind the bar!
Born and raised in Fort McMurray, he continues to invest himself in the community, doing charity work and donating through EVP. “I’m proud to be from Fort McMurray,” he shares, “because it’s rich in opportunity, culture, and family.”
The success Mike has experienced with East Village Pub + Eatery is the result of years of hard work, learning the ins and outs of the hospitality industry, and tailoring it to the needs and wants of Fort McMurray. He is dedicated to doing the hard work, and is committed to excellence.
As the recipient of the Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce 2017 Business of the Year award, it’s clear that Mike and his team are doing something right. “We take it seriously, and love doing it,” he says.
“Don’t sweat the small stuff,” is the best advice he’s received, and Mike puts that into practice every day as he helps to shape the restaurant scene in Fort McMurray, and the future of the community.
When talking about his hopes for Fort McMurray he says, “I hope that we continue to grow and prosper as a community.”
