The Glebe

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire?

As the weather continues to cool down, and we have more reasons to stay inside where it is both cozy and safe, the city seems to be taking a breath before the hectic holiday season really kicks in.

Foodie Friday: Head to Makita for creative eats

Photos by Jennifer Cavanagh Makita Kitchen Bar opened a few months back at the north end of the Glebe’s Bank Street strip. It’s the latest culinary contender in the area settled by Olga’s Kitchen and Erling’s Variety.

Irene’s: 30 years in the Glebe

Thirty years ago in 1985, a woman by the name of Irene Corey opened the doors to her modest-sized pub in the then up-and-coming neighbourhood on Bank Street called The Glebe.

As a consequence, us poor Ottawans are left to entertain ourselves for most […]
