And so September is here, and it’s time to say goodbye to the hot, humid days of summer.
▪️On the plus side, the fine people of Moulins La Fayette Hintonburg have announced their upcoming seasonal apple pastries and breads. Apple Strudel? Yes, please. Raisin Apple Brioche Bread? Absolutely. And of course, bring on the apple pie.

▪️We love that Marin Urban Beer Garden was closed yesterday for the staff beach volleyball party. Sounds like these people know how to have fun. The beer garden is back open today, which is great, because it’s a very pleasant 23 degrees outside and the sun is shining. These are perfect conditions for sipping local craft beer. 345 Preston St.
▪️Heating Up The Capital, Ottawa's first hot sauce festival, will be launched this Saturday in, checking a map, Mountain. (That's near Kempville.) The CBC looksat Meow! That's Hot, Mama Lalo, Mazépis, and Haico's.
▪️Laheeb Shawarma and Laheeb Grill say that those other Ottawa shawarma joints are Americanized – they, however – make the real thing.
