Apres Snow: Vanier gets its 1960s groove back

From the well-known to the obscure, Vanier-born DJ Mimi la Twisteuse is bringing her vinyl collection of French yé yé to Après-Snow at Fontenelle, an evening component of Vanier’s Winter […]

Valentine’s Day Roundup

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching love is in the air (or yet again, it may just be your breath that you’re seeing with the ridiculous cold weather outside).

Foodie Friday: Dinner for TWO. Resos at SIX. Happy we {ATE}.

What springs to mind when someone mentions eating on Preston Street? Somerset most certainly equals pho, but Preston is a mélange of pricey Italian restaurants, beer-focused pubs and a few non-Italian ethnic eateries.

Looking for a good shuck? Check out the Elmdale!

I recently had the opportunity over the holidays to exchange emails with Peter McCallum and Joshua Bishop of Whalesbone Oyster House on Bank Street concerning their acquisition of the Elmdale Tavern in Hintonburg. Their joint ownership became official just after Christmas, though you may remember some hoopla a few months back when this purchase was […]

Support Local: Bronson Food Passport edition

The ongoing construction on Bronson Avenue has hit many businesses in the area quite hard. Whether it’s a decrease in retail sales, or dealing with the daily hassle of having their neighbourhood turned upside down, the impact has been significant.
