Brew Donkey brewery tours are well established here in the beer community and in the local tourism sector. It’s a great concept, get on a classic yellow school bus to learn about beer and then visit breweries to put that knowledge to practical use.

Let us begin with a bit of good news: this weekend promises a little nugget of sunshine and a whole lotta great things going on to compensate for the rain drops and grey skies. From there, we jump head first into this weekend’s goings on.
Art House Café has quickly earned a positive rep as a solid new go-to for community, culture and more.
Inside, bright lights adorn each wall compelling you to explore the dozens of artistic treasures inside. Every carefully selected piece hails from a local creative professional living and working in the 613.
Sky Lounge, one of Ottawa 2017’s signature events, is an exclusive culinary flight of fancy. With a cocktail and a dinner option, attendees enjoy fine dining prepared by Chef Stephen La Salle and his team from Andaz’s Feast+Revel restaurant as you float 150 feet above Ottawa, suspended by a crane parked at City Hall. Apt613 took to the sky above Ottawa Friday night as a guest of Ottawa Tourism to enjoy the dinner service.
