House of Targ
The season’s wind down is upon us and the days are growing shorter. Thankfully for all, this holiday weekend is a day longer than typical and we can enjoy another late summer’s night.
The dog days of summer have arrived and, with temperatures above 30 degrees in the forecast all weekend, we can brace ourselves for another hot one in the capital. In addition to a guaranteed heatwave of a weekend, it is also guaranteed to be a fun one, with a long list of great goings on to get out there and enjoy.
After the hullabaloo and heatstroke of the long weekend has passed, we are faced with another beautiful weekend in our city, and no limit of ways to fill it. Bluesfest starts with a bang on Thursday night and rolls right on through the weekend. If Lebreton Flats is not your destination of choice, mix it up a little bit with a poutine in Gatineau, a soccer game, some classical music or a Shakespeare play for a little culture.
If you’re looking to spice up your life a little, stop into Meow! That’s Hot and consider staying a while. They’d love to be your new local.
