Large sheets of plexiglass hung from chains on the ceiling like a synthetic butcher’s shop. Lights reflect behind them, creating for all of us the same kind of blurred visualization of those who should wear glasses but don’t. The suspended sheets have since been removed, but the sweaty self-reflection remains. Otherwise unassuming, Irene’s is a pub that will reflect your assumptions, but on Sunday nights, Irene’s becomes a time capsule.
Bad news: the forecast calls for rain this weekend. Good news: it’ll (hopefully!) wash away the final remnants of winter just in time for spring blooms to decorate the city. While waiting on that sunny weather, here are a few things to keep you occupied.
What a weekend we have in store! Pack your sunglasses and your umbrella because spring is on its way.
Here’s a peek at some of what’s happening around town this weekend.
COVID-19 cases are on the decline, vaccine rates are rising, and restrictions are easing in Ottawa. There is plenty to get out and enjoy this summer weekend in the city. From farmers’ markets, to vintage markets, live music, to art exhibits; there is a little something for everyone. Without further ado, here are the details on this weekend’s happenings.

Well Ottawa, we’re back in the Orange zone. With that change comes new opportunities to enjoy arts and culture in town, while putting into practice all those social distancing/proper hygiene techniques we’ve been perfecting over the last year.
As always, the Weekend Roundup is here to offer up some suggestions for your weekend activities.
#NightWalks613 is an ongoing photography series by Jason Fournier that documents Ottawa neighbourhoods at night during the course of 2020.
Here are some fun and festive (and free) ways to get out and get into the holiday spirit.
November’s second summer is coming to an end and this weekend we will have returned to more seasonal temperatures. While we may have to put on our jackets and scarves before heading outside, there is plenty to enjoy if we do (as well as plenty to do if we don’t)!
This edition of FemmeVox will feature Amanda Rheaume, Larissa Desrosiers, NAMBI and Ambre McLean.
We’ve got a big weekend ahead. As Ottawa enters Stage 2 of reopening, we’ll also be celebrating 613 Day, a birthday party of sorts for Ottawa and Apt613.
There are obvious gaps in this list, so please help us by adding suggestions to the comments section.
