  • The final What the Truck?! at Northlands Park is taking place on July 8, 2016 from 5-10pm – take advantage of your last chance to sample food trucks at the horse races before the track is dismantled!

  • El Cortez has a new sibling upstairs – Have Mercy, a Southern restaurant, opened today at 8232 Gateway Boulevard. They’re reservation only until July 6, 2016.
  • Also in Old Strathcona, Izakaya Dorinku is now open, located at 10205 82 Avenue.

  • Remedy Cafe’s fifth location is now open in Terwillegar, at 1707 Towne Centre Boulevard.
  • The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald has begun a series of Friday night dinner buffets, and will be offering them throughout the summer. It’d be nice to have a bit more information to share, but their website is unfortunately mum.

  • Jason Foster shares his thoughts on the beer  trends in Alberta.
  • Sunshine Organic is one of our go-to vendors at the City Market, so it was nice to get a photo tour of their farm via The Local Good.
  • Great to hear Calgary will open Alberta’s first community food centre this fall.
  • We had our second Sugared and Spiced Cake Club delivery aligned with my birthday a few weeks ago, and we enjoyed this cake just as much as the last!

  • There’s nothing better than a steaming bowl of pho on a hot day, especially when it happens to be a #phodate.
