Let’s set the record straight, before anyone gets their tail in a tizzy… Parc Omega is NOT A ZOO! It’s a natural museum, where wild animals live in their natural habitat and get to interact with humans in an ethical and civilized way… a magical experience for both humans and animals. This weekend, my family and I received a private tour of the park with Park Director and spokesperson, Uncle Serge. After the tour and exploring the park for the entire day, we stayed overnight in one of their brand new log cabins, a new addition to their suite of rustic accommodations. Thank you to Park Omega for the lovely hospitality.
As most of you already know, Katie from Yow City Style have joined the Lawn Summer Nights Ottawa Lawn Bowling tournament this year with our husbands. We call ourselves ‘The Bowl & Chains’ and our mission is to raise to $2000 this summer in support of Cystic Fibrosis.
Last night, I was invited to attend the grand re-opening of the newly renovated Mena Restaurant on Preston Street in Little Italy. It’s a fine dining establishment, serving French Cuisine through a blind tasting of 5, 7 or 9-course meal, with the option of a wine pairing.
Ottawa is growing up guys, and I am blessed to be able to tell you all about it. I was invited to the grand reveal of Venue Twenty Two, The Westin Ottawa’s newest premium rooftop event space on the 22nd floor. It was stunning, the views were breathtaking, the staff was super friendly, and the food was delicious… like, really, really, good. This project was a huge undertaking and took about 6 years from conceptualization to grand opening! Because The Westin is located on NCC property, the rule book had to be pulled out for this one. I have to admit, I never noticed that there was any construction happening to the Westin, this entire time. Cudos to the team for pulling this off with very minimal interruptions. And now, it’s time to PARTY!
