After what has been a rainy week, we are fortunate to have dry skies this weekend and to be able to make the most of one of the final (dare we say it?) weekends of fall. We may not get to enjoy some of the liberties we had before returning to Stage 2 of city shutdowns amidst this global pandemic, but we folks are creative and there is still plenty going on in this fine city.
Capital Tease Burlesque
Stage 3 is still a weird place to be so be sure to balance your mental and physical health with joyful activities while practicing distancing and relentless hand washing!
This year marks Ottawa burlesque troupe Capital Tease’s 10th anniversary. Measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic have affected Capital Tease’s regular performances, but they quickly moved their performances online through Zoom.
There are some new outdoor activities to enjoy this weekend. We are now able to kick a soccer ball around, play a round of disc golf, shoot some hoops, or pop an ollie at the skate parks. Picnics are also now a thing. While we agree that this is very exciting news, please make sure that you enjoy these newfound freedoms safely and respectfully, while keeping your distance from others.
A new month is upon us—and so is the weekend, for those of us who are having a hard time keeping track of what day it is anymore. Don’t worry, it’s understandable; we’ve been in physical isolation mode for how long now? Despite the challenges thrown our way, we adaptable creatures have taken this new “normal” in stride and there is still a whole lot going on—a safe distance from other people.
Here are some highlights from the last week on the blog and some things to look forward to this weekend.
