The Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend?

We’ve had a hard day’s spring. If the seasons were Beatles, it’d be safe to say that we’re at the Ringo stage of the year. Even Ringo knows he’s blowing it on the lead vocal right now. But don’t worry, you’ve got a ticket to ride out of weather blah and into good times with […]

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend?

Confession time: I’m not from Ottawa. I am so not from Ottawa that I typically retreat to area codes that Drake sings about on long weekends. But last weekend was different. Ottawa shows and sun are too damn nice right now. Instead, my dear 613 family and I followed our Easter Sunday dinner with Sunday […]

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend?

The manic pixie dream billboard of Justin Trudeau and Barack Obama hugging in Sandy Hill (thanks CBC!) just might have brought sunlight back to Ottawa. We may not have state dinners, but we are beaming with endless arts and culture festivals, shows, and outdoor adventures. Sunny ways are back, baby! Versefest, Ottawa’s international poetry festival, […]

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend?

You’ll notice that a chunk of the hibernation-shattering events going on this weekend are at Pressed Café. On top of an excellent new wave of venues such as House of Common, Black Squirrel, and Happy Goat, Pressed has been a beaming example of welcoming diverse programming and patrons – zines on zines on zines, transparent […]

Quoi faire ce weekend: What to totally not do in Ottawa this weekend

You’re staying in this weekend? Okay, cool. No, I mean it, I’m checking out. It’s more frigid than Stephen Harper’s heart. There’s nothing that could beat rewatching Friends or cycling between Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in a continuous boredom feedback loop. Zero. Zip. Nada. It’s not like six of the city’s most flavourful restaurants are […]

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend?

Hey, do you wanna feel SO ENERGETIC? Try FESTIVALS! Our rep as one of the best cities for fests is no exception in the winter. Between Megaphono and the TD Ottawa Winter Jazz Festival for music, and Cracking-Up the Capital for comedy (now that’s a tongue-twister), you’ve got plenty of reasons to leave the house […]

10 can’t miss bands at Megaphono

One of Ottawa’s newest festivals is already one of its best. Megaphono is back for a second edition of 613 music from February 2-5, filling local venues as well as unexpected places (three words: skating bonfire party) with sounds, talks, and mixers that you can’t miss out on. Whether you’re looking to discover more awesome […]

Quoi faire ce weekend? What to do in Ottawa ADB?

2016 will go down as year zero A.D.B. – After David Bowie. It’s major sad to lose a talent who’s still staring back at us across culture: art, fashion (beep beep), music, and even comedy bears his mark. But wallowing away isn’t The Bowie Way. The Bowie Way is to get creative, get out of […]

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend! Welcome to 2016!

We’re just past the edge of 2016 and already, Ottawa is full of better-looking people with better ideas and more talent. And they’re actually really, really nice. Just look at this weekend – there’s a new wave of parties, comedy shows, and art exhibits that you can take full advantage of. Don’t miss your chance […]
