DavidsTea – Stephen Ave

Lately, I’ve been on a DavidsTea kick. I’ve been rotating between Live Wire Lemon, Organic Mother's Little Helper, Organic Cold 911 and The Buzz. I find the staff at the Stephen Ave location friendly.  I struck up a conversation with the manager who mentioned DavidsTea hosts complimentary tastings in the downtown core. Say no more.… Continue reading DavidsTea – Stephen Ave

Popeyes Louisiana Chicken

Veronica and I wanted to get together for dinner. I suggested Pad Thai Restaurant or Africana BBQ Curries. Veronica said she felt like Workshop Kitchen + Culture. Her husband Jughead didn’t like any of our suggestions. He wouldn’t bite until I offered to host a fried chicken dinner at my place. For this post, let’s… Continue reading Popeyes Louisiana Chicken

White Spot – Part Deux

I asked my father Ludwig where he wanted to go for breakfast. White Spot he responded, without a moment’s hesitation. However, he stressed that we were not to eat at the location inside Richmond Centre. Though I didn’t ask him why, he proceeded to inform me the reason. First, let’s put on some music. As… Continue reading White Spot – Part Deux

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

National Westhills – Best Burger

My husband and I frequent National Westhills. It’s not in our neighbourhood, but we make the trek because of National’s heavy focus on local beers, happy hour oysters and recently, their burger special on Thursdays. 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

Mill Street Brewery

I love the new Mill Street Brewery on 17th Ave, located at the old Republic Club spot. L and I were warmly greeted by a hostess and ushered into a quiet corner nook section. I dig the high energy vibe. The clientele looked to be in mostly between 20s-40s range.  The playlist was fun.  I could hear other customers squeal… Continue reading Mill Street Brewery

Newcastle – Happy Hour

The number of happy spots are growing in Calgary. Not that I'm complaining. I've noticed that my husband's favourite local pub Newcastle offers a daily happy hour from 3:00 pm- 6:00 pm. Newcastle features draft beers, hi balls, domestic bottles and house red or white wine for only $4.00. So cheap! For happy hour eats,… Continue reading Newcastle – Happy Hour
