▪️If you’ve got planning devotées on your list, take note (sorry): Today’s the last call for Christmas delivery from STIL. That means you’ve got mere hours to select planner stickers, notebooks, and inserts that will be delivered in time for Christmas.
▪️Darren the BC boy just murmured ‘It’s a shame that it takes an Ontario bakery to advance Nanaimo Bar studies’. He is referring to the delicious-sounding Candy Cane Nanaimo Bars from Ottawa’s Bread by Us. $24 for 6, available Friday through Sunday only.
▪️Burrow Shop, the curated online grocery store of local products, has started same day deliveries and pickups, and they offer free shipping anywhere in Ottawa and parts of Gatineau on orders over $150. For difficult-to-buy-for friends and family, Burrow will also build you a custom box of local goods. Just pile ‘em in your cart and buy a Build Your Own Box option for $8. Your items will be bundled into a gift bag with a ribbon and gift tag. Easy.
▪️Capture the holiday spirit this Thursday (December 15) with a free concert of music by OrKidstra. It’s free to attend in person or online. If you’re heading to the IRL show, please bring a non-perishable food donation to the Ottawa Food Bank. 6:30pm at the Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre, 355 Cooper St.
