Every year Apartment613 works with Jane’s Walk Ottawa – a festival of free neighbourhood walking tours – to give a tour of an area where we love to hang. We pull together some of the business owners we know (and some we want to know better) and ask them the sorts of questions we’d ask if we were interviewing them for the blog. We lead a group of walkers door-to-door to listen in on the conversation. It’s a neat opportunity to see a neighborhood close-up and meet some of the people that we think are making the city interesting. This year we’re focusing our walk on Somerset Street West, starting at Dundonald Park and walking down to Preston Street. We’ll be making five or six stops along the way to introduce you to some of the personalities and products that make this one of my favourite parts of the city, including special guests form the Chinatown BIA, Shanghai Restaurant and the blog foodiePrints. It should be an interesting time.
Meet us at Dundonald Park on Saturday, May 4th at 2pm. We’ll help you get to know Somerset West a little bit better.
This is just one of a ton of Jane’s Walks happening all over the city. For more on the project and information on walks happening in your neck of the woods, check out www.janeswalkottawa.ca.
