The goal for this morning’s walk was Albert Island. I was curious to see any progress in access to the Zibi side, especially since the next Brewery Market is taking place there on October 22, ┬áinstead of Hintonburg. Sorry to report that the gates were locked. I did see some great autumn leaves along the river. And cyclists were even using their bells thus morning! Read the rest of this entry »


Walking down Wellington I noticed that Times Used Sports is for lease. I checked their website and it doesn’t have any news.

Sad to see a local family business disappear.  But I suppose many use kijiji now.


It used to be a high end kitchen place, between Agave and the Wellington Gastropub. I wonder what it will be?

NosyNeighbour and I went for a walk a few weeks ago. I took a few photos to remind me of the latest news. And then completely forgot about them. Read the rest of this entry »

This year’s winter has been a bit of a yoyo so far. Some days I’ve walked the hood in a t-shirt. But today was bundle up and watch your step after last night’s flash freeze.

There have been many celebrations over the past few weeks, including Beau’s in Vankleek Hill, and the Barrhaven Oktoberfest. We didn’t make it to either.

If you’re looking for less of a drunkfest, with some good food and an authentic Bavarian host, check out tomorrow’s Oktoberfest at St. George’s Church. I’m not Catholic, but NosyNeighbour and I will be there in our Bavarian attire. Because once you spend the big bucks on the authentic garb, you have to find places to wear it.


I’ve been meaning to post for a while. Lots of pics of new things in the hood.

  • The empty commercial spot on the east end of 101 Richmond Road has been leased. Zanadu Juice Bar is “opening soon”. Let’s hope it’s not like the cafe on Parkdale and Wellington.
  • Urban Cloud is a strange addition to the hood. It has no store front to entice you in, and I have no clue what they actually sell. Other than e-cigarettes. I guess they must have leased the building because the “For Sale” sign is back in front. Doesn’t make you want to go inside.
  • Going to the Parkdale Market may make you fat. If cold beers at the Carleton Tavern on a hot day aren’t enough to tempt you, maybe the future sweet treats will grab you. Holland’s Cake and Shake is opening soon. You can follow them on twitter here.
  • I had heard a while back that Suzy Q was opening a second location also near the Market. I had no idea how big it was going to be. Check out the big sign on top of the former Orange Gallery location.
  • Summer is here and so is live entertainment on the patio at Westboro Beach. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 5 to 11 p.m. Oh, and it’s free! And it’s licensed!
  • And if you’re out on the paths today, take care. If the crazy geese don’t get you, a fallen tree just might.


In this month’s Kitchissippi Times ….


My last update was heading east to Hintonburg, and I promised to go west next time. I did, I just didn’t get around to posting the pics and updates until after I’d headed east again. Pics are at the bottom for those who don’t like words.

So I’ll start in the west first, but it would really be a later winter update.

  • Heathers, which was a consignment store, has now closed. The windows are papered up, with no sign of what’s going in next. The PostNet store in the same strip mall is also for lease. I suspect rents will or already have gone up since the whole strip is going to be re-faced. I wonder how long the Piggy Market will be there?
  • The newish Second Cup has new perpendicular sign that I haven’t noticed before. I like these types of signs because they’re meant for pedestrians who can’t see the signs 20 feet up the building as they walk along the sidewalk.
  • Belgian Chocolates is moving to Bells Corners. Read the rest of this entry »

Just a quick update on things I’ve noticed walking around Wellington village:

  • the sign is up for Supply and Demand (the oysterbar replacing Santorini’s)
  • Vi├▒a del Mar is no more. The sign is gone, but the chairs and tables remain.
  • workers are busy inside the former Carbon Computing, now Nomadic Training

And they finally removed the snow from our street! And managed not to rip up the grass! woo-hoo!
