Sounds like Whitney Houston Jam

One of my favourite songs of all-time is Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” It’s catchy, it’s dancy, and just plain fun. That’s probably why I gravitate so to Betty Who‘s “Somebody Loves You”. It has that same catchy chorus and title lyric that mimics “Dance” to the t. The song is the pure 80’s, pop-synth vibe that’s hot right now and is super fun to listen to.

The Australian artist is ahead of her game as the song has been available since 2012. But it’s been picking up steam with last October’s album release, Take Me When View this Post

Destination: Deerfoot City could be pretty amazing

Calgary is home to some pretty top-notch shopping but also some not-so-awesome retail centres too. For years, Deerfoot Mall has been sitting pretty vacant at it’s corner off the major thoroughfare and 64th Avenue NE. Heading to the ‘hood to pick up some outlet wares has not been on my priority list (and apparently not for most Calgarians too. But I gotta give props to Showhome Furniture for getting me up to Deerfoot Mall at all).

A recent announcement from Vancouver-based Shape Properties will see an entire revitalization and expansion of the site to become Destination: Deerfoot City. And View this Post

Classic Rotisserie at Notable

One of the things I love about Notable is that the menu is always offering up new eats that I haven’t tried there. This is their aromatic-rubbed natural “quarter” chicken that’s all parts delicious and yummy. The housemade apple vinaigrette gave an extra kick to the side salad.

Our Love is as Tall as the Calgary Tower

I’ve been a fan of local folk faves Woodpigeon for a while now, but had never seen this music video before. The charming and whimsical animations are a perfect match with this gentle love song. Plus the title of the song rocks. Sadly, the Calgary Tower does not make an appearance.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, lemon loaf cake, lemon buttercream, lemon-lavender shortbread, and lemon-rosemary lamb chops, just to name a few. That’s what local writer Gwendolyn Richards did with her new cookbook Pucker. This delicious and juicy cookbook is an ode to the citrus fruits that give us that tang and make our tastebuds pucker.

If you thought that lemons and limes were only good for putting in your water glass, then you have been missing out. The recipes in the View this Post

The Glenbow Museum gets Schmancy with Jessi Cruikshank

It’s time to get Schmancy! The annual fundraiser for the Glenbow Museum is taking place this weekend with host Jessi Cruickshank. The former MTV host sat down with The Glenbow to do a Skype chat and had some hilarious things to say about John Travolta, her childhood, and her love of the arts.

The best part is Jessi’s story about how her parents got her to go to museums and art galleries as a child. Apparently the lure of a McDonald’s Happy Meal was enough to get the young Jessi to visit a cultural View this Post
