Giveaway: Win a $100 Gift Card to Sobeys Newcastle Take-Out Kitchen & Fresh Market

Okay, this is pretty cool! Did you hear about the #SobeysKitchenSurprise? In mid-March, 25 people were invited to what they thought was a menu tasting for a new restaurant called “Fresh Market Bistro” that would open later this year in north Edmonton.

The event featured a five-course meal that included charcuterie, butternut squash soup, salmon, prime rib, and Italian pastries. At the end of the meal, the guests got the big reveal: the food was actually from the take-out kitchen and fresh market at Sobeys Newcastle!

It was a really neat way to announce this unique concept Sobeys kitchen/store, located at 16943 – 127 Street, that features ready-made to take home, fresh food every day. (The communications nerd in me is especially excited by how they tried to do a fun, surprising video as a way to promote this!)

Watch the video below:

The fine folks at Sobeys reached out and asked if I would be interested in giving away a $100 gift card to the Sobeys Newcastle location so other Edmontonians could check out the fresh market/take-out kitchen.

Sobeys Newcastle opened in June 2014 at the Newcastle Shopping Centre at the corner of 127 Street and 167 Avenue and is the first “new concept Sobeys” in Edmonton. Menu items are prepared daily and sold for takeout. Great for lunch/easy dinner! Keep scrolling for details on how to enter for a chacne to win $100 gift card to try out Sobeys Newcastle!

  • I came for the #Instagrammable Skating Rink. 💕 I think that probably sounds silly, but I do love how “Instagrammable” spaces can encourage people to #ExploreEdmonton! Had a lovely double date at the lovely Victoria Park Oval & Freezeway with @mikethyking, @littlmissandrea & Gordon! ⛸👯‍♀️👯‍♂️

  • Ohhhhh so many feelings. ❤️ I had such an incredible experience watching @traviswall’s @shapingsoundco AND finally meeting Travis! Fun fact: I used to run a fan page for Travis back during his early #SoYouThinkYouCanDance days. He said he used to check the page for updates on himself, lol. 😂❤️ Thank you to the @albertaballetcanada for inviting me to see this phenomenal show with just the most ridiculously talented dancers! 💃🏻🕺 and for asking me to host the pre-show #DanceTalks Q&A. 🤓 Thanks to @nikolevallins for arranging the meet & greet 📸 and thanks to my old friend @jasmine.topham for coming & sharing in the #SYTYCD love! So happy. ❤️

  • #NewOnTheBlog: I write about the delicious, authentic Venezuelan lunches I’ve been having at @elfogonlatino on 118 Avenue. ❤️ It’s great to have two awesome options for arepas north and south of the river! Read my post on my blog (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻)

  • When it’s -32C out ☃️, there’s no better food choice. 🍜 I warm right up with my mom’s pho at @KingNoodleHouse! (and you can too! 😉) I’m also excited to share that @KingNoodleHouse is participating in Edmonton’s first-ever #ChinatownDiningWeek! We’re offering a $15 two-course dinner option - your choice of a large bowl of pho + a spring roll & grilled pork balls platter. There are 4 other great restaurants in the area participating too. Learn more on my blog! (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻)

  • I’m such a sucker for eggs on anything—especially on poutine—ESPECIALLY with shoestring skinny fries. 😍 This is The Cure from @centralsocialhall, with red wine gravy, avocado, bacon and a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce. It’s eggcellent! 🍳🍟😋

  • It’s a new year so I wanted to introduce myself to new followers & reintroduce myself to old. 😉👋🏻 Thanks so much for following me!
I really appreciate it. 💕
I tend to post a lot of photos of food ( 🤤) and family (specifically my husband and best friend @mikethyking, and our four furbabes @OliveAndArtie 🐶🐶 and Thor and Loki 🐱🐱).
I love to #ExploreEdmonton & #TravelAlberta — or travel anywhere really ✈️, and I will often invite you to read my blog posts (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻), and often partner with great businesses that let me run a lot of fun giveaways for you! 
My family owns a pretty popular Vietnamese pho 🍜  restaurant in #yegchinatown called @kingnoodlehouse and I have a pretty great #socialmedia job at a marketing and communications agency called @calderbateman. 
I love taking photos — in the last year I started mapping out Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton (#IGWallsofYEG) 📸 and love finding them wherever I travel. 
I’m also the Founder of the Edmonton International Cat Festival (#YEGCatFest) 😻, the only event of its kind of Canada, that celebrates cats, cat people, and cat culture, while raising money for local cat rescues. The next fest is May 26 (mark your calendars!)
I care deeply about the work I do, and tend to say “yes” (maybe more often than I should). I can also sometimes be impatient. 😅
It might seem like I’m always out and about which isn’t untrue, but I also spend a serious amount of time watching Netflix (who’s with me? 🙋🏻‍♀️)
This Instagram feed, along with all my posts on social media and blog, are just highlights of my life. I love seeing your highlights too!
So that’s just a little a bit about me. Thanks again for following me, liking my posts, leaving comments, sending messages and watching my Stories. I really do appreciate it, and feel grateful that you’re interested in connecting with me. Looking forward to what 2018 brings! ✨
Also, this photo is from the lovely Edmonton Ice Castles, which reopens for the season this Friday. It’s an awesome place to visit, so make sure you go! ❄️
