From the outside, Ten Foot Henry is a simple storefront with a shingle of a cartoon boy’s head. On the inside is a beautifully decorated space with wood beams, gorgeous green plants and bright finishings. The newly-opened restaurant is the latest addition to 1st Street SW and brings a delicious mix of dishes to the ‘hood.

The restaurant space in Theatre Junction has changed over many times over the years, but Workshop Kitchen + Culture is looking to make it stick. The location is an anomaly as it isn’t a standalone spot – the restaurant sits in the atrium area before the theatre entrance.  I’m sure I’m not the only one that has showed up for an arts show and not realized I was loitering around in a restaurant, not the lobby.

This new local and tourist attraction is exactly as it sounds – a tour of Calgary breweries with many sips to be had with other like-minded fellows. I took part in a condensed preview version of the tour to see exactly what it’s View this Post

Broccoli cheddar quinoa bites

I’m writing this blog as I’m watching the season premiere of Masterchef Canada on my PVR. The show reminds me of the great home cooking I have been doing lately (if not exactly Masterchef worthy lol) and I’m excited to share with y’all. One of my life resolutions this year is to try out new foods and recipes. I’ve been finding my cooking inspiration View this Post
