Snow Way I am Chickening Out

This is post number 5 in this year’s Fried Chicken Fest series. This week involved trudging though snow, and three more restaurants.

My third choice for this post is Fionn MacCool’s Grant Park.

Stone Soup Fundraiser

Every so often as I wander through downtown I see posters up for events. Quite often I look at the poster and then immediately forget what it was about. Such was the case for the Stone Soup Fundraiser.  This was held yesterday at the Manitoba Hydro Building. I’d read the Stone Soup poster a couple of times, but not really made note of it. As I was walking down Edmonton on my way to a cup of coffee, I noticed a…Continue readingStone Soup Fundraiser
