I was really excited when one of my dearest friends decided to visit me in Saskatoon this summer, all the way from Bali Indonesia.
She and I have laughed, cried and tried to solve the world’s problems over drinks throughout the years, from yukaflux during our college years to warm cups of luwak coffee in the Balinese sun this past November. So I thought it would be fitting for her first time in Saskatoon, to tour the city over drinks, getting to know a few of our cool neighbourhoods and hangouts, while catching up during her short stay.Read More →
I can’t remember the last time I set aside time for handmade projects that require skill and a creative eye. At least half my job as a digital media content creator is spent in front of a screen or behind a lens. It is less exciting than it appears online.
Which is why I was excited to see an event page on Facebook advertising Culture Week at Wanuskewin Heritage Park. Of particular interest to me was a workshop to make moccasins. It was also free thanks to sponsorship by PotashCorp.Read More →
Saskatoon has a bit of a reputation for going festival crazy in the summer months. There are multiple festivals every weekend June through August and now it looks like the same can be said for September!Read More →
I didn’t know much about Saskatoon before this trip. I knew that it was one of the biggest hubs of agriculture in Canada and that is pretty much it. A couple days before taking the flight, I opened Instagram and tried to find as many places as I could via the search section. I saved two coffee shops, an ice-cream parlour and some restaurants that I thought might be nice to try.Read More →
In June I went on an epic 43 kilometre overnight paddleboarding adventure along the Chief Whitecap Waterway starting at the Dakota Dunes First Nation. The CWW is also part of the Trans Canada Trail system.Read More →
Saskatoon completely surprised us. We spent the first weekend of our summer exploring this incredibly diverse city, which totally surpassed all expectations. We’ll admit, we were a bit blind to what Saskatchewan has to offer as we’ve never been, but growing up in Alberta- figured it was similar, tons of prairies and farmland. We were completely wrong.Read More →
There’s no doubt that the most charming streets in Saskatoon are those built around pedestrians, with lots of small, unique, locally-owned shops. Let’s not, however, be too quick to forget about 8th street. We sometimes lose the charm and brush the whole thing off as parking lots and big box stores, but there are some incredible and defining businesses and landmarks on 8th Street that help make Saskatoon the great city it is.Read More →
Whether it’s a bucket list item to tick off, the chance to face a fear of heights or a short-term fix for adrenaline junkies, jumping out of a perfectly good airplane with Skydive Saskatoon is truly an experience. It’s also the perfect opportunity to explore locally from a very different perspective.Read More →

Share a nice meal then head off to the movies or perhaps listen to live music. Maybe even go for a late night stroll by the river. These are all pretty standard options when it comes to taking a date out on the town in Saskatoon – or any city for that matter.
But what about doing something a little more unique with that special someone? What all is there to do in Saskatoon for a date night?
When I was quite young, I asked my mom if I could change my first name to Ice Cream, since I thought being called Ice Cream Kohen was hilarious. I was a…
Those of us that are old enough, especially those of us who are musicians, will remember H.E.L. Music on Broadway, which closed down at least a decade ago. I darkened the doorway there quite a bit, from taking guitar lessons at MTM School of Music upstairs to doing in store appearances with my band in the 90s. The Vinyl Diner occupies part of the upstairs space still, so it’s nice that music still floats around that building on Broadway.
Live Comedy may very well be in its heyday right now, with comedians selling out arenas and Netflix specials being viewed by millions. I can understand the appeal, as it seems we’re…
Whenever I travel, I always look for new fitness and yoga studios to check out and experience while on the road. After long flights or drives, there is nothing better than moving…
As a twenty-something-year-old in Saskatoon, sometimes it’s difficult to figure out what to do recreationally after the sun goes down. I mean: even the local go-to spots around town tend to fall…
