Klein & Harris

I recently discovered one of Calgary's secret gems - Klein & Harris on Stephen Ave. This place has it all. Excellent service, a beautiful space and elevated cuisine at incredible prices. My recent lunch with Jaimie was so good that I cancelled my office lunch reservations at another downtown restaurant and booked with Klein/Harris instead.… Continue reading Klein & Harris

Redheads

My husband and I dine at Redheads every week. Recently, Redheads started to offer Japanese tapas. We've only gotten through half the menu. What I like about the tapas menu is we can try so many different items but not feel stuffed. The mini seaweed ($2.50) was a generous quantity for the price. I like… Continue reading Redheads

Jamesons Irish Pub

I had a team meeting at Jamesons in Brentwood. I didn't really want to go on a Friday afternoon but that's not very team-oriented to say to my boss!

So let's play some appropriate music... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7L2PVdrb_8 Happy hour entails $5 glasses… Continue reading Jamesons Irish Pub

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.

I met my in-laws at Spot on Kitchen for happy hour on Friday. My sister-in-law Turned loves this place because of the high-chairs, colouring sheets and range of toys to amuse her toddler Jack.

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. I contacted Cactus Club and… Continue reading Charbar – Rooftop Patio
