Vero Bistro Moderne

My friend Westjet called me out of the blue and wanted to do brunch. I'm not fond of brunch.

Cactus Club – Yelp Elite Event

I write reviews on Yelp solely to get invited to their 'elite' parties. Most recently, I attended a Taste of Cactus Club. Holy smokes - their management team (Elim, Jim, Curtis and Kurt) can throw down. We were so spoiled, I felt like a rock star. For this post, I think Guns N' Roses 'Welcome… Continue reading Cactus Club – Yelp Elite Event

Bow Tie Pizza – Stampede 2017 Series

Bow Tie Pizza invited me to try some of their product for free. After I read Jomar's posting on Zomato about his positive experience, I was game.

Charbar – Rooftop Patio

It was my colleague's Ayyecarama birthday on Wednesday. I wanted to book a table on a patio in the downtown core. My first choice was Charbar but I thought that there was no way I could get a table for eight. I called National and the hostess was rude and unhelpful.

National Westhills is a family friendly venue. My sister-in-law feels comfortable bringing her toddler here – as so many other… Continue reading National Westhills – Best Burger
