By Hannah Manning on March 14, 2019


Whether you’re celebrating Pi Day or St Patrick’s Day, this is a great weekend to round up some friends and have a good time.

All Weekend

Based on the hit movie, Sister Act takes place in the late 1970s and brings to the stage the tale of an up-and-coming singer who has to take refuge in a convent to evade her murderous ex-boyfriend. Read our review here.

Our reviewer attended Love and Human Remains at the Gladstone and only has great things to say. You have until Saturday to check it out.

Wednesday through Saturday, experience all seven Harry Potter books in one 70 minute musical, Potted Potter.

Sock ‘n’ Buskin presents Fahrenheit 451 from March 14-17. Take in Ray Bradbury’s most famous work, presented by Carleton University’s oldest running club.

Thursday

Happy Pi(e) Day! Save 3.14 on any pizza pie at Fiazza, or stop by Three Tarts for some limited edition mini pies. Where’s your go-to pie spot? Tweet us @apt613 and let us know!

Dominion City x Jabberwocky is a cinq à sept featuring a plethora of Dominion City cans and bottles, including their new release collaboration Second Breakfast Oat Special Bitter. There will be snacks and $1 from the sale of each can benefits the Ottawa Food Bank.

If you haven’t stopped by Ottawa’s new food hall for their happy hour, Free Fridays at Queen St. Fare is a great time to try! Featuring beer specials and $1/ounce wine, you can’t go wrong. Tunes provided by DJ Magnificent.

What’s Good in the Hood? The Quartier Vanier BIA is happy to present the first edition of a new monthly series. This month, grab some all day breakfast, or a delicious smoked meat sandwich at Bobby’s Table, while Dank Aspects and Illiyah Rose entertain with their unique sound, a combination of blues, folk, soul and hip hop! Pay what you can. Proceeds support the Vanier Crime Stoppers initiatives.

Saturday

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day with buds and Beau’s! This party, now in its fourth year, takes place at the Aberdeen Pavilion and has sold out every year. It’s like a more urban, less German version of their famed Beau’s Oktoberfest party. Get all the details in our preview here.

The 37th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade starts at Ottawa City Hall at 11am. Follow the fun on Elgin Street, Laurier Avenue West, and south on Bank Street until the parade ends around 12pm at Lansdowne. Don’t forget to grab your ticket to Beau’s ahead of time so you can take your merry-making inside!

Sunday

Saint Brigid’s has a full day of activities lined up to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. Did we mention there’s a bar in the basement of this church-turned-arts centre? See ya there!
