Eating up the Hill: The Smoque Shack
I know I've been a bit less than diligent in my Hill and Hill-adjacent food blogging lately. So, in the spirit of public service, on the weekend I ventured to a BBQ place I've been meaning to try in the Byward Market: Smoque Shack. As I've mentioned before,...

Eating up the Hill: You don't order a burger at the Parliamentary Reasturant
I forgot what I'll assume should be one of the foodie rules: don't order something simple at a place that specializes in the fancier things. Or, put another way, if you want a burger go to a burger joint. I found myself for the second time in the Parliament...

There are some days on the Parliamentary calendar that everyone circles. Throne Speech. Budget. Presidential visits. Those are big days. But there is one annual event that trumps them all: Sparks Street Ribfest. For three weekdays, we're not Liberals, Conservatives, NDPers or journalists.
