CHOCOLATE SINSATIONS

Before we went to the Weakerthans show on Saturday night, Boyfriend Nik and I headed to one of our favourite restaurants, Dessert Sinsations (yes, they have great food too, not just desserts!). Now I had been told about Ciao Winnipeg’s…

COUNTING GAMES FOR CONCERT-GOERS

First, let it be said that Boyfriend Nik and I had a great time on Saturday at the Weakerthans show at the Burt. According to a friend of ours, they were shooting material for a dvd release and I’m certain…

POOR CHOICES ARE FOREVER

Man, I get a major kick out of bad tattoos. The “lolcats” format of the site isn’t really my thing, but they are showcasing some amazingly heinous tattoos over at LOLTATZ. I just cannot believe the things people want on…

BOBALU

PRETZ & POCKY ON PARADE (REVIEW)

So today I made one of my occasional jaunts into Chinatown at lunch. Always an adventure, even in Winnipeg’s smaller locale.  I ventured into one of the groceries in the hopes of finding my favourite type of Pretz (pizza). While…
