What's Open & Closed on Canada Day 2014? Here's the answer:

http://girlitup.blogspot.ca/2014/06/whats-open-on-canada-day-2014.html
Canada Day is so much better when it's on a Monday or a Friday - making it an easy long-weekend with your employer. This year is one of those 3 in 7 years when it's a mid-week day, forcing you to add that extra vacation day o...

This is by far the best store in Burlington for designer denim, trendy women's fashions, maternity wear, great accessories like shoes, handbags & necklaces, and exceptional service. Great brands like Michael Kors, Milly, Trina Turk, DL1961, Sno of Sweden, Fidelity, Franco Sarto, Esprit, C'est Moi, Splendid...the list is endless and there's nowhere else to get it all in one place. You would be hard pressed to find better customer service anywhere as the staff here are attentive, thoughtful and honest. Amazing store! I'll be a customer for life :)

The team at Continuum II Inc. are true professionals with a wealth of experience and the ability to ask the right questions to find out what is truly needed in an individual's financial plan. Having worked with them many times, I can say they have the knowledge and integrity that are necessary when recommending people in this field.

The food here is always really exceptional. Also very inventive. My husband and I often get 4-5 things to share between us, which is the perfect amount for dinner, and love the way we can experience variety without too much cost or being too full. Menu is changing often, but I always recommend the short ribs, anything they make with bacon, the steak - they do meat very well! Great for groups of 4 in their comfy, big booths. Not too loud for good conversation. I go there often for both lunch and dinner and always love it!

A great store - boutique environment with attentive service - excellent women's shoe brands too like Donald J Pliner, Ivanka Trump, Steve Madden, Tommy Hilfiger, etc... Good prices and a very pleasant shopping experience.

Amazing view, definitely the best view of any restaurant in Burlington, Ontario. Great food - an upscale menu with familiar items that would please many tastes no matter who you're dining with. I'm always really impressed with the appetizers. Great drinks from the bar. A little loud at times so hard for quiet conversations, but good energy in the restaurant so it's a fair tradeoff. I've also attended a private wedding there which was excellent!
