Calling all Nerds! You know who you are.

You’re invited to celebrate with local foodies and some of the city’s best farmers and chefs over a multi-course, gourmet luncheon at the 5th annual Harvest Table presented by Savour Ottawa. Eager to learn more I got in touch with Trevor Haché from Savour Ottawa who attended Harvest Table for the first time last year... | Continue reading article

Apt613 was invited to Archery Games, a new recreational facility that celebrates its grand opening in Ottawa this weekend. Inspired (in part) by dodgeball and paintball, the sport is guaranteed to make you sweat and won’t hurt if when you get hit. Standing outside an 8,000 square foot arena before game time, Ramsay Jackson focuses on a foam target in the distance as he shows how to load and shoot “marshmallow tipped” arrows. “Hold the bow with your non-dominant hand and avoid chicken wing arms,” he says, raising his elbow... | Continue reading article

Ottavienne, je l’avoue, il n’est pas souvent que je fais la touriste de l’autre côté de la rive. Pourquoi? Bref, c’est un concours de circonstances, j’imagine. Cela dit, vendredi dernier, je suis sortie en date avec mon chum pour la première fois depuis la naissance de notre petit Léandre, et voilà que notre choix de divertissement s’arrêta sur le spectacle aquatique multimédia AGWÀTÀ, présenté à la tombée du jour, du 24 juillet au 2 août. Un délice expérientiel : le fruit de la créativité d’artistes et de collaborateurs locaux. AGWÀTÀ : 15... | Continue reading article

If you’ve been roaming the streets of downtown, soaking up some of this temperate summer weather in the last couple of weeks, you might have noticed some rather peculiar black-and-white posters taped to utility poles. No fancy pictures. No attention grabbing graphics. Just: #WALK TOGETHER JULY 18TH PARLIAMENT HILL 2:00PM This may have created more questions than it answered. I spoke with one of the creators of #WALK Together, Kenneth Antonio, to figure out just what this walk was all about. “#WALK together” is a sort of “un-demonstration”, a statement... | Continue reading article
