In a conversation with new Fury FC coach Paul Dalglish, we find out what kind of team Ottawa can look forward to seeing in 2016. Paul Dalglish has been in Ottawa just a few weeks, but he’s been hard at work ever since he arrived.  Since being named the new coach of Ottawa Fury FC, he’s found a place to live in the Glebe but he hasn’t had time to explore any of his new city beyond his new workplace at TD Place stadium.  Even skating on the canal will... | Continue reading article

Yoga on Tap: Find yourself… in a brewery

It’s all about balance. When I first found Ashley Kokelj’s Yoga On Tap sessions online, I was uneasy with the thought of combining draught beer with deep lunges. But after talking to “The Happy Yogi”, I see that the combination of craft beer and yoga works. It’s more holistic than I initially realized and is less about balanced flavour profiles or balanced positions: It’s about a balanced lifestyle. Ashley explains that making the link between the two was easy. She was already accustomed to attending yoga classes with friends and... | Continue reading article

Ottawa Fury FC just finished its second full regular season, winning the North American Soccer League Fall Championship, and are now the second seed in the NASL playoffs.  They’ll host their semi-final game against Minnesota United FC at TD Place on November 8th.  It is, without a doubt, the most important soccer game in Ottawa’s history. Earlier this week I spoke with Fury FC captain Richie Ryan about the playoffs, about adjusting to life in Ottawa, and who has the best hair on the team. Apt613: Hi Richie, I want... | Continue reading article

For almost two decades, the Ottawa-based Busting Out dragon boat team has been offering inspiration and hope to women who have survived breast cancer. While there is no age limit to join (members range in age from their mid-30s to early-80s), all team members must have completed cancer treatment, and also recovered sufficiently to be able to be part of the team. Inspired by her fellow paddlers, Busting Out member Shelagh Needham (who joined the group in 2000) decided to write All in the Same Boat, a collection of life stories of... | Continue reading article

Apt613 was invited deep inside a secret bunker to try out Ottawa’s newest escape room that opens today. In an effort to track down a terrorist who has a flair for explosives, my team of six is guided by a scruffy informant who tells us to keep our eyes closed. We walk blindly in single file, following his lead by holding onto one another’s shoulders. When it’s time, we are allowed to open our eyes and the perimeter of a dimly lit bunker is revealed — only to soon realize... | Continue reading article

The first weekend of September is upon us, and with it the schools mercifully take back the children and the rest of the city amps up their enthusiasm for complaining about the impending weather. There’s lots of art and music to take in this weekend, with some mini festivals and comedy to balance things out. All weekend long, PDA Projects has Coalesce at the St. Patricks Building on the Carleton Campus. Curated by Jacklyn Meloche, this performance art mini-festival runs from Sept 3-6th. This is also the last weekend to... | Continue reading article
