Small Business Spotlight

Gander Disc Golf is an Edmonton-based disc golf shop that started online in 2020 before opening a storefront and warehouse in 2021 thanks to support from the disc golf community (locally and across Canada). Mike recently ordered a few discs from them in preparation for the 2023 season. He got into disc golf last year and really loves it. It’s basically golf but with frisbee/discs. It’s not too intensive a physical activity but definitely gets the body working, is easy and affordable to start trying, gets you outside, and (at least we’ve found for men), is a great way to bond over something that isn’t beers in a pub lol. Perhaps an activity you want to pick up this year!

New on the Blog

There are some excellent options for Vietnamese food in Edmonton, especially recently, with an influx of trendier spots! With so many Vietnamese restaurant options available now, I thought I’d put together a new blog post From the Trendy to the Traditional: Guide to Vietnamese Restaurants in Edmonton including new + trendy, tried, true and traditional, and spots with unique / specialty dishes.

From the Blog Vault

Around this time in March 2020, I put together an interactive “Spin the Wheel of Local” blog post as a way to support local businesses during the early days of the pandemic. Many of the options (and the wheel functionality itself) still works if you want to give it a spin to spontaneously decide what to support this week!
