Foodie Friday: Ottawa is Getting Juiced!

Written by on

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.

As Emmett became older, his love of records grew, and just over 11 years ago he started DJing. His DJing career began when a few friends, who... | Continue reading article
