Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ce weekend? + Freezing ticket giveaway

Between being knee-deep in watching The X-Files and discovering there’s a Scully and Mulder intersection in Nepean, I realized that in every group of friends in Ottawa, there’s a skeptic and a believer. You’ll recognize an Ottawa Scully by their persistent complaint that there’s nothing fun out there. Despite gazing in awe at the giant […]

Weekend Roundup: What to do in Ottawa?

You did it Ottawa. Between all of your votes, poll station selfies, awkward political Thanksgiving conversations, John Oliver binge-watching, I WILL VOTE OCT 19 photos, and Trudeaumania, you made this city numero uno in Canada for voter turnout. Ottawa’s spirit of collaboration is damn contagious. Bars host parties to encourage voting, café floors shapeshift into […]

Reinventing the blues with MonkeyJunk

It’s about time MonkeyJunk got a Juno nomination. The Ottawa trio have nine Maple Blues Awards, a Canadian Independent Music Award, were only the second Canadian artist to win a Blues Music Award, and placed third at the International Blues Challenge in 2009 — all in four years. Titles aside, frontman Steve Marriner, lead guitarist […]
