Welcome to the long weekend!

It’s the weekend — and with the ongoing state of emergency here in Ottawa, we can bet what everyone needs is an opportunity to rest and recalibrate. Here are some suggestions for how you can go about doing so.
Let’s kick off this year’s #Support613 Gift Guide with a selection of gifts to warm and brighten the recipient’s home, whether they live downtown, in the burbs, or out in the country.

Conveniently, for those items, we have stockings. It’s always a joy to watch someone pull a bunch of tiny surprises from a giant sock.
We gave three friends $30 each and this one rule: their holiday shopping has to happen at local, independent stores.
More than 40 businesses in Wellington West and Hintonburg took part in the 2019 Holiday Window Display Contest.

Gareth Davies, the company’s founder, came to Ottawa via his […]
After years making and selling clever t-shirts through his company Winged Beasts Outfitters, Prentice’s craft is moving off of our chests and onto our walls.
Happy long weekend, folks! On Instagram, tag your shots with #apt613wknd to be featured.

She’s sitting in Ministry of Coffee on Wellington Street West, gesturing towards a small clay figure. His name is Bean, and he is the guardian of this establishment. Bean is one of a crew of […]
This past Friday, as part of Hintonburg Happening, Maker House Co. hosted an evening of music, ghost stories, s’mores, and beers. Ming was there. For more on Ming, check out his website, radio show and Instagram.
Hintonburg Happening is a nine day event that celebrates Wellington West’s community of artists and businesses.
