Contest! Double Zero After Dark on Saturday Night

There’s something about “Saturday night” that makes me want to break out my Dance Mix 95 cassette tape and jam. And now that Double Zero is hosting its After Dark parties on Saturday nights, I’m having even more 90’s flashbacks.

For the folks looking for a grown-up night on the town, Double Zero downtown is the place to go on Saturday night. The restaurant has set up $5 Prosecco bubbly by the glass and local DJ talents like Chad LaTulippe are spinning funky beats and soul-filled tunes. The lights go down and music goes up at 9 pm.

Skip the Dishes and Treat Yo’ Self + Contest!

Skip the Dishes order

Order from Skip the Dishes so you can just eat, eat, eat!

Life can get pretty busy – work, school, sleep, fitness, eat, and repeat.  So sometimes it’s nice to just treat yo’ self and order takeout rather than cook the non-existent things in your fridge. Skip the Dishes does just that by letting you order your favourite foods from the local restaurants you love. When faced with the prospect of only microwave popcorn and celery in my kitchen, I decided to turn to Skip the Dishes to order in my preferred sushi rolls from the always tasty Goro and View this Post

Do some touch-ups, upgrade a room or two, or start brand new with tons of big ideas and trusted advice at the four-day event.

One of the things I enjoy most about the holiday season is seeing all the holiday plays! Alberta Theatre Projects’ latest show comes from Calgary’s very own Rebecca Northan, and her take on the classic fairytale of Cinderella set in modern-day Calgary. Now how could that not be a recipe for mirth and merriment?  Slipper: A Distincly Calgarian Cinderella Story is another chapter in the hilarious Northan repertoire filled with charm and wit about life in Calgary. The show is running until December 31st at the Martha Cohen Theatre.

Make the holiday season Simply Better with Edo Japan

Edo Japan food bank campaign

Giving back during the holidays is as easy as buying a spring roll at Edo Japan. What does that mean exactly? Until January 1, 2017, Edo Japan will donate 25 cents to Canada’s food banks for every spring roll that they sell. Delicious, crispy spring rolls for the better good! Yes, that’s an easy win for all of us. I can’t wait to get my hands on that deep-fried roll of happiness.

Last year, Edo raised over $74,000 for food banks across the country and with more and more Calgarians using food banks each month, it’s never been View this Post
