Saskatoon has been ramping up its public art in a major way lately, specifically when it comes to murals. I’m sure there’s more than double this many new larger-than-life pieces this year but I went out and captured a few notable new ones for you. Kudos to the artists and funding organizations for recognizing the importance of public art in a city, and helping to bring some of the big boring walls to life.Read More →
I was prepared to enjoy myself, but I’ll be honest: I had doubts about mustard in cheesecake.
I was wrong.
It was delicious – all of it was delicious. Summer bean salad with maple mustard dressing and roasted cashews. Whole roasted pork loin with dijon Brussels sprouts. Mustard cheesecake with rosemary honey. And what made it even better was the satisfaction of having made it ourselves.Read More →
Fall makes me feel good. Hot days, crisp nights, all the colours in the trees, the northern lights… It’s the best. I want to let you in on one of my (and so many other peoples’) favourite things to do in fall: a Valley Road day.Read More →
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 has a reputation of housing more restaurants and bars than any other city of its size, and to solidify our rep it seems fitting that a few more new spots fire up this spring. I’ll give you the run-through of some recently opened downtown spots to check out if you’re looking to try some new flavours.
Collective Coffee is known as one of Saskatoon’s best coffee shops. Danica and I had…
Saskatchewan is known as the land of living skies and Saskatoon has its fair share of spectacular sunrises and sunsets lighting up the city. But at night, the sky still dances if…
Other than skydiving and roller coasters, there is not much more exhilarating than a good waterslide. Luckily, many hotels in Saskatoon have some really great slides, which as a mom of three…
Bubble tea isn’t something necessarily new to Saskatoon, but many people unfamiliar with this Taiwanese-created treat may not be aware of some of the readily available offerings in the city. You’ve most…
By now you must have noticed that the geeks have inherited the Earth, or at least, they’ve taken over popular entertainment. One only needs to take a look at the television or Hollywood releases to see things from comic books to video games capturing our zeitgeist. And that trend hasn’t escaped Saskatoon, with events like Sask Expo, our own answer to ComicCon, being hugely successful.
When the weather fluctuates as much as it does here in Saskatoon, sometimes it’s more difficult to make plans than one would think. It could be freezing cold today and surprisingly warm tomorrow; constantly yet unexpectedly switching between ice, slush and snow. The best thing to do is to adapt, but sometimes making the best out of an environmentally unfriendly day is exhausting.
Saturdays & Sundays are for enjoying yourself – you’ve worked all week and whether you’re hungover from a big weekend night or not, brunch can be the best way to begin a good day-off in the city. Once you’ve assembled your brunch team, you’ve got a few options to enjoy.
