Wienerpeg Hot Dogs – The Forks

Wienerpeg signaller

Two Saturdays ago, someone at The Forks location of Fools and Horses asked me if I was going to the grand opening of Wienerpeg. I didn’t know about the opening of this new kiosk. It is taking the place of Skinner’s a hot dog kiosk that had been at The Forks for 30 years. I …

Old Spaghetti Factory – The Forks

Old Spaghetti Factory Lasagne

The Old Spaghetti Factory is one of those places that I associate with things like childhood family dinners, and church youth group outings. In my mind The Old Spaghetti Factory belongs with places like Bonanza and Ponderosa. They were a cut above the typical restaurant that we would visit. Although if we wanted to go …

Celebrating Saint Andrew and Ordination

Saint Andrew's shortbread.

2019 marked the 10 year anniversary of my ordination. I had hoped that I would be able to arrange and host a special feast for celebrating that day. In the end that didn’t work out for me. Instead I enjoyed a solo day of celebration. Just like 2018 I wrote about that experience as well. …

Union Station on Main Street at Broadway was once one of the transportation hubs in Winnipeg. There still are some trains that come through, but mainly the building is dedicated to offices. With the Forks a stone’s throw away, there is also not a great demand for food services in the building. However, in the …

Pancake House-Pembina Highway

The Original Pancake House in Winnipeg has four locations. When I wrote the original review it was based on visits to the Pembina Highway location. The other location I’ve been to over the years is the one located at The Forks. The Forks Pancake House is located in the main market building right at the …

Espresso Junction – Johnston Terminal

Earlier this year, when I started working the Norwood area, I was glad to find Finales nearby. Sadly, Finales has had to close. This means I am without a good quality coffee shop nearby the church. For those who wonder, neither McD’s or the place named for that hockey player qualify. I will occasionally go to …
