odds and endsSat Aug 16, 2008 Miss Vicky
OK, here are a few tidbits now that the weekend is here....
It's Movie Night in Hintonburg - Kids can watch Enchanted in the Hintonburg community centre at 6:30pm, and The Great Debaters is showing outside at 8:30. Movies are free; snacks will be available for purchase!
A few things moving on the mainstreet... noticed the Khatoon Persian Restaurant on Wellington has a cute little patio. Nearby the Afro-Caribbean grocery (Kisanola? Is that the name?) that's tucked in beside Bonkers has started promoting itself a little more. We haven't been in to check the food, but we're hoping we can find some good jerk sauce there.
Local sustainable planners/designers Vert Design are working on the former Money Mart, which we hear is going to be some kind of knitting-oriented store (Miss Vicky also heard something about workshops and Waldorf toys.... anyone have more details?). Heavens to Betsy is making tremendous progress and will be opening their expanded store next to Cyclelogik in a couple of weeks.
Oh, and if you haven't had a chance to ckeck out the Cube's latest show, which features some of the best artists that westish Ottawa has to offer, then try to stop by this weekend. The show ends on Sunday. Next show is called the Futurists and is featuring another fun treasure hunt by Andrew King. Whee!
