- The Palestinian Bazaar on March 14, 2015 will celebrate the arts, culture and food of the Palestinian people. The event is taking place at the Citadel Theatre from 12-5pm.

- First there was S’wich, then Farrow, and now, Sandwich and Sons – Edmonton is definitely on the handcrafted sandwich train! Both Andrea and Cindy checked it out last week.
