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!
Father’s Day is only a few weeks away, and I gathered up a few awesome (selfish and dreamy!) local gift ideas to celebrate Father’s Day in style. I never know what to buy my husband and if you’re in the same boat, you may appreciate these local gift ideas. There are a few items that cater to different budgets, so I am sure you will find something that suits your needs in my list. As long as you actually put some thought into it this year, the thought will actually count! Don’t scramble with a last-minute two-four from the beer store and get him something he deserves (or something you can use yourself!! haha)
