Escape the Bank: Try Servus Credit Union’s Mobile Escape Game

Escape the Bank Servus Credit Union Escape Room Edmonton Alberta

I’m a huge fan of escape games. I find them fun, mentally challenging, great for team and friendship building, and just generally a great thing to do. That’s why I was excited to hear that Servus Credit Union had launched a mobile escape game they were taking to events across Alberta, and even more thrilled when they invited me to come down to try their room!  Servus Credit Union’s “Escape the Bank”…

SideQuests Adventure Inc Edmonton Escape Rooms

Happy New Year everyone! I was hoping my first post of 2017 would be some type of thoughtful recap of the past year and just as thoughtful look-ahead to the coming year, but I haven’t really had a chance to put together those thoughtful thoughts, so instead I’m going to blab on about some more Edmonton escape games. :)  I always love when an escape room introduces new rules or new types of…

Recap + Giveaway: The X-Realm Edmonton Escape Game

The X-Realm Edmonton Escape Room Game

The problem with my obsession of escape games, is that eventually puzzle themes and patterns start to reveal or repeat themselves, and rooms start feeling easy. You go into an escape room wanting to succeed but you also don’t want to solve the puzzles too easily and quickly! One time, we got out of a room in just 25 minutes and when you’re paying $25 for a 25-minute game, that…

Recap + Giveaway: InTRAP Edmonton Escape Room

INTRAP Escape Room Edmonton - Escape

One of my all-time favourite things to do withΒ friends is trying out Edmonton’s escape rooms. In the last two years, escape games have surged in popularity in ourΒ city. As of March 2016, there are at least 8 companies opened (withΒ more in the works). You’d think that’s a lot but Mike and I recently tried anΒ escape room in Vancouver and the owner there told us at last count there were almost…

  • Convinced @mikethyking to stop at a couple of #InstagrammableWalls we missed on our last Calgary visit. πŸ˜œπŸ˜ŠπŸ“Έ He’s a great #InstagramHusband. We also visited a pop-up wall students worked on at @itsallatthejube (swipe πŸ‘ˆπŸ» to see). They said the project was inspired by my Guide to #IGWallsofYYC blog post! πŸ™πŸ» When blogs/social media inspire action... πŸ’• It was really cool to see (you can see it too!

  • This #longweekend @mikethyking & I are in Calgary & Banff! I was excited to try sandwich shop & deli @EmpireProvisions and it did not disappoint! 🐷 The porchetta sandwich with rosemary garlic salsa verde was UNBELIEVABLE. One of those first bite makes you exclaim oh my god, kind of dishes. πŸ€€πŸ™πŸ»Must return to try their other sandwiches!! Thanks for the recommendation @jaypeacee! Happy Long Weekend everyone!!

  • This week I tried a vegan restaurant AND the #SuperFoods menu at @milestonesrestaurants, so I’m feeling pretty healthy right now. πŸ˜‰ This is the fiery (and it was fiery πŸ”₯) Tunisian Chicken on quinoa and vegetables from #MilestonesRestaurant. They have a special Super Foods menu running until Feb. 25, that I was invited to try this weekend! It features tasty dishes specifically packed with things that are really good for your body, like antioxidants, fibre, omega-3s, protein, vitamins, probiotics and calcium (#FoodwithBenefits!) I also really enjoyed the Tempura Green Beans and Sweet Potato Fries from this same menu! πŸ˜‹ #sponsored
