Giveaway: Red Shoe Crawl 124 Street Tickets!

Although we’re still in the midst of summer, September will be here in no time! Though that might mean back to school for some or (sigh) cooler weather, on the bright side, September will also see the second Red Shoe Crawl of the year take place!

Red Shoe Crawl

The Red Shoe Crawl is a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta, and encourages participants to explore businesses on foot using a passport system. Tickets for the event are $40, and typically sell out in advance.

In 2012, the Red Shoe Crawl expanded beyond the Old Strathcona neighbourhood and held a second event in the 124 Street neighbourhood. With interesting boutiques and new cafes and restaurants around every corner, Mack and I really enjoyed sampling our way through the area.

This year, confirmed businesses include:

It’s great to see some new establishments step up to the plate to support this charitable event, along with the returning businesses. Organizers anticipate a total of 16-18 shops and eateries to be a part of the event that day.

The Red Shoe Crawl team were nice enough to allow me to give two tickets away! To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below with a valid e-mail address that answers the following question:

Which 124 Street area business are you most looking forward to trying or revisiting at the Red Shoe Crawl?

A winner will be chosen randomly from all responses collected before the deadline. The contest closes on August 14, 2013 at 11:59pm. Good luck!

  1. Somerville – I am going with your #1 choice from last year, and they served excellent nibbly foods when I was there a few months back.

  2. I’d have to say The Bothy from the list of confirmed restaurants, but I am really hoping The Duchess signs on again!

  3. I’m looking forward to Cococo! I’ve been wanting to try their chocolates since they changed hands from Bernard Callebaut.

  4. Definitely The Bothy and Somerville! Sheri at Somerville is so friendly and helpful, I’m glad to see the restaurant on this list 🙂

  5. I haven’t tried Somerville Wine Room as of yet, so I’d be excited to give that one a try!

  6. Bothy. Tried to get in once and it was packed, always a great sign.
    Cheese from Paddy’s is a close second.

  7. The Bothy. Have heard great things ever since it opened on the South side, but still have not made it over to try it out!

  8. New bbq place at southwest corner of 99 st. and 63 ave.: Fired Up Southern bbq – Tried it once and the pulled pork and brisket were very good.
