Can someone tell me what these guys are doing up on top of the Arts Court? Is it related to an event or something? Wish I had time to investigate but the last 24 hours have been absolutely hectic and as you are reading this I am most likely already on my way or in Toronto for the weekend. If you know anything about it, please share it in the comments. I’ll update the post with the details when I have some time this weekend.     [google_map address=’327′ coordinates=’45.426799,-75.688165′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

I can’t imagine how much work goes into making something like this, but the result is stunning. Are there anymore amazing stained glass displays in this city that […]

I remember when I arrived in Ottawa, only a couple of years ago, that I found the southern side of the Centretown part of Bank Street to be pretty dingy looking. It has taken me until now to realize how much that has changed. New condos, completely renovated blocks of businesses including the “new” Vistek, and a number of new restaurants and pubs have completely changed the face of this area.
