Foodie Friday: Awaken your inner chef with Culiniste

As a foodie, I certainly can’t knock the novelty and decadence of frequenting a restaurant for dinner. From the expertly crafted ambiance to (hopefully) attentive service, the experience extends beyond your meal. Still, often there’s something even more delicious about a quiet, comfortable night in. And, in my mind, a leisurely evening at home and […]

For the love of Comiccon

One meeting room hosted a conversation on how mathematics can be used to solve the dilemma of the zombie apocalypse. Down the hall, line ups formed for discussions on how to improve your steampunk cosplay and character. Further lines around the outside of the building ushered fans into the next celebrity Q&A. The very idea […]

Five great craft beers – and where to drink them

This content originally appeared in Scene, a free newsprint prologue to the National Arts Centre’s Ontario Scene Festival. Scene was created collaboratively by Guerilla, Apt613, and Herd Magazine.

Irene’s: 30 years in the Glebe

Thirty years ago in 1985, a woman by the name of Irene Corey opened the doors to her modest-sized pub in the then up-and-coming neighbourhood on Bank Street called The Glebe. Originally called, “Cap’n Pinky’s”, it bore the charm of a cozy, rustic Maritime seaboard local, which rapidly became home to a regular clientele in […]

One year already! On April 20, Ottawa’s Lowertown Canning Company celebrated its first year in business at Oz Kafe. More than 40 guests attended the event enjoying drinks, charcuterie and of course a wide variety of Lowertown Canning products. “The past year has blown by. It has been exhausting at times, but 100% worth it,” […]

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend?

True to form, the arrival of spring has brought with it spring showers. A weekend of rain may be in store for us this week, but we’ve got plenty going on to brighten up the mood. Head over to Ritual Nightclub tonight, for a hip hop showcase from the 613 to the 416. The Home […]

Foodie Friday: Empire strikes back

A few years ago, I attended a birthday party for a friend at Empire Grill. Having never been before, and with the meager budget of a university student, my jaw dropped upon glancing the prices on the menu. It was definitely the first time in my adult life that I was a patron at a […]

Foodie Friday: Ottawa is Getting Juiced!

I recently moved home to Ottawa from Vancouver, where the juice craze is in full force. Vancouver’s The Juice Truck, a florescent-coloured kitchen on wheels, parks in trendy Gastown every day – serving cold-pressed juices and scrumptious smoothies to business-people and yogis alike. Retailers like Glory Juice Co and the Juice Box have moved from […]
