Ah sushi, Kevin and I probably grab some once every other week. And like an old lame couple, we typically frequent only two establishments. Kinjo Sushi in the Northwest, for when we want to eat in. And Nami Sushi on 14th St. SW (formerly Sushi Motto) when w...

Seriously Good Soup - Oak Tree Tavern
This past week, Kevin and I met friends for dinner at the Oak Tree Tavern in Kensington. I had been to the small, second story, pub before, for drinks during Salsa Fest, but never eaten there before. Seriously, I cannot recommend the Oak Tree enough, everyo...

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Thank god for Netflix Original Series! I swear I am beginning to think the best new TV isn't even on TV any more. And with Tina Fey behind the laughs on the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, you can see why I might say this. Also I have had the theme song stuck in...

Fibre Haul from Legacy Studio in Cochrane, Alberta
I had to make sure I snapped some pictures of this before I spun it all up. This week I popped down the highway into Cochrane, Alberta to visit Legacy Studio . Theoretically I was going specifically to pick up a pair of hand combs, but you can't put me into...
