20 Things to do in Edmonton for Valentine’s Day

Linda Hoang - January 29, 2015

I love Valentine’s Day! Yes, yes, sometimes the commercialism is a bit much – it’s crazy that the pink hearts and candy come out almost immediately after Christmas, all that societal pressure of finding someone to spend it with that can be stupid, and it’s silly to think that you should only celebrate your special someone on this one day a year, but I’ve always …

Review: Dog Birthday Party at the Doggy Style Deli

Linda Hoang - October 18, 2014

For months now, I’ve been wanting to take our beagle Olive to the Doggy Style Deli – a dog restaurant/grooming/store in west Edmonton (15131 Stony Plain Road).
