Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire ?

By Hannah Manning on January 24, 2019





Congratulations on surviving another wild week of #ottweather! Whether you’re celebrating by getting out onto one of Ottawa’s top tobogganing hills, or curling up on the couch with one of Ottawa’s most requested books of 2018, have a great weekend.


Looking for dinner plans? Head to Das Lokal for a special beer dinner, hosted by Beau’s CEO and founder Steve Beauchesne and the Das Lokal kitchen team. Enjoy 5 courses and 5 beers, starting at 6pm.


Love show tunes? Looking to get some exercise? Broadway Workout returns after selling out their first run of classes. Learn more about the class in our interview here.

If you haven’t been to the Museum of Nature to discover how animals adapt to survive, be sure to get yourself out this Friday night to Nature Nocturne. Some animals hide, move slowly, or change their colours. What’s your strategy? Learn about amazing animal adaptations and dance the night away.


The first brunch edition of Dominion City Brewing Co’s pop-up brewery kitchen will feature the crew from Citizen. Not a morning person? Dominion City just released a pop tart ale which is almost the same thing as breakfast, right?

Kilt or no kilt, all are welcome at the Great Canadian Kilt Skate, part of the Scottish Society of Ottawa’s month long celebration of all things Scottish. The skate starts at 11am at the skating court at Lansdowne Park.

Planning on getting out on the canal this weekend? Help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis with the Carleton Cup, where racers skate, run and drink in the ultimate Canadian triathlon.

In the mood for music? Souljazz Orchestra‘s very last concert at Le Petit Chicago is Saturday night, Loon Choir will be at Irene’s Pub and 88GLAM take to the stage at Algonquin Commons Theatre.


Cafe My House is closing (but chef Briana Kim is opening a new spot this spring!). Stop by Sunday for a garage sale and pick up some bowls, glasses, decorations and even chairs. They’ll have a small cocktail and wine menu and complimentary snacks.

And for something completely different, Beyond the Pale is hosting drone racing. They’ll be converting the brewery into a massive race track, and everyone is welcome.
