The outdoor market in Ottawa’s ByWard Market is one of Canada’s oldest and largest markets. Open 363 days a year, the market is only closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Vendors arrive early to set up, as seen in Caroline Mercer’s photo essay.
Jigsaw Escape Rooms Ottawa opened in the ByWard Market this fall and Apt613 was invited to try The Heist, an escape room for up to seven players who have 45 minutes to sift through a bunch of clues and (hopefully) find stolen diamonds.

The streets of Ottawa were bustling this weekend as onlookers enjoyed Kumo, the giant spider, and Long Ma, the horse-dragon. After several confrontations throughout the weekend, the two faced off in an epic battle Sunday night at the Canadian War Museum. La Machine, an Ottawa 2017 event, will be one for the books for sure.

Established by two Irish immigrants, Larry Bradley and Pat Kelly, the pub gets its subtle charm from a not-so-subtle commitment to its roots. From the “snug rooms” to the the floor tile, to the bars made of Irish wood, there’s a clear intent on preserving the spirit and culture for anyone who has been to or yet to visit Ireland.
June is here and with it comes double digit temperatures. Slap on your sunscreen and go find a patio because summer is here!
