We usually tallk restuaurants on Wednesdays but we'll do it tomorrow, instead. Meanwhile, some events of note …
▪️The history of Tunney's Pasture presentation by the Historical Society of Ottawa is now online. [Kitchissippi Museum]
▪️October 26 – The Friends of the Carp Hills are bringing in Canada’s leading scientist in remote sensing for a presentation.
Dr. Vern Singhroy will present national and regional examples showing how radar and other imagery can be used for issues relevant to residents in the National Capital Region—more specifically West Carleton—in managing forests and responding to natural disasters such as fires and floods.
This presentation should be of particular interest to victims of the 2017 and 2019 floods and the tornado of 2018, which had a devastating effect on property owners. The analysis of satellite data, before and after an event, is often used in insurance claim settlements. $10, [Friends of Carp Hills]
Yesterday we talked about Ottawa band Good2Go playing their 'first post-COVID gig' at Irene's Pub on October 29.
Reader Liz wrote in to ask where exactly does the ottawan get off writing that we're post-COVID? (Liz used much nicer words)
She is absolutely right. We're not in post-COVID anything, unless those words are followed by traumatic stress disorder.
It would have been more accurate to write, ‘Ottawa band Good2Go is playing their first gig since lockdown rules have been loosened at Irene's Pub on October 29.’
And either Good2Go or Irene's Pub probably owes us a beer for the free publicity.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
