Open Up and Om – #14 – Danielle Murray & Michele Theoret. Filmed On Location
I made my first real upgrades to the podcast recently, which is awesome, because it now lets me have up to three guests on at once. And what better way to crack open the conversation then by having Danielle Murray and Michele Theoret come by for a talk. I love these humans with all my … Con...

Northern Chicken – Edmonton, Alberta
Posted
I’ve always had a soft spot for Andrew and Matt, It probably dates back to all of the bacon infused comas they’ve induced over the years. Unfortunately, Andrew and Matt are working farther and farther away from the homestead. Which means, I don’t get to see either of them nearly...

Pho Boy Vietnamese Kitchen – Edmonton, Alberta
Finally made my way over to Pho Boy today, and I’m glad I did. With countless pho offerings in town, it’s nice to sit down and enjoy a boy of pho with flavour and depth. They keep the entire process simple. Instead of having 20 bowls on the menu, they offer the build your own … ...

Jen Ference ladies and gentleman. She might not need any more of an introduction than that, so just hit play. You can find Jen Ference leading workouts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with November Project Canada, coaching Run Collective workouts on Wednesday nights at lululemon, or follow al...

Tour de l’Alberta – 2017
Posted
Had a fun Tour de l’Alberta ride this morning. This was my first year completing any distance other than their longest offering, because a colleague of mine is new to the cycling world and wanted to test his legs with the 50km. Loved the route for this distance, as the roads were great and ...

Vaticano Cucina – Edmonton, Alberta
Posted
Short and sweet. Outside of price and presentation, I’m not sure how Vaticano Cucina is going to survive. When you go with a group that’s big enough to sample almost the entire menu and no one is happy…which sucks, because there are few things worse than beautiful food that does...

Open Up and Om – #12 – Justina Smith. Come For The Art, Stay For The Sarcasm.
What happens when one of your old friends come by for the podcast…hilarious, random, and ridiculous things. Liking spilling beer all over your laptop. Even if you never listen to this podcast, make sure you go visit Justina at the Art Walk this Friday, Saturday, Sunday. If you don’t k...

Open Up and Om – #11 – Nadim Chin. Building Good Mornings
I haven’t known Nadim Chin very long, but I can tell you that I’ve found a natural connection with every passing interaction. From the first morning that I finally just showed up to November Project, Nadim (and Jen) have established an amazing culture that will likely bring you back e...

Tokiwa Ramen – Edmonton, Alberta
Finally stopped in at Tokiwa Ramen today. Located in the Brewery District, this gem of a restaurant is doing some mean business. Taste is subjective, but I’m telling you. This is the best ramen in town right now. Be sure to try the cold brew green tea if you’re into that kind of thing...

Tapas Tuesday at Zinc
Did you know that the Art Gallery of Alberta has free admission on Tuesday and Wednesday!? What’s even better!??? Zinc is offering fantastically priced tapas menu on Tuesday evening. Pro tip – go to the AGA before you eat, because it closes at 8…and get the Pulled Pork sandwich,...
