Issue 569 Volume 3 Number 66
It’s Tuesday, July 12, 2022 and today's ottawan newsletter is coming to you from Vancouver.
Our epic Toronto – Vancouver journey rolled to a close last night when we arrived at the home of Darren's relieved parents (it seems no matter how old you grow, your parents will still worry that you'll drive safely on highways).
Like nearly all of the days we had on the road, today is a hot and sunny one in the Lower Mainland. Meanwhile, it looks like there's a severe thunderstorm watch in Ottawa today, so please be safe.
And one final foreign beer of the day: Featherwight IPA from Four Winds Brewing in Delta.
Ottawa Blues Fest continues at LeBreton Flats Park, with performances by A Short Walk to Pluto, Lyle Odjick & The Northern Steam, Three Days Grace, and more. 1 Vimy Place.
▪️Hamilton arrives at the National Arts Centre and there are still a few tickets available. Go see it: there’s great music and singing, and you never know who you’ll see in the audience (at the performance we saw in the UK, John Kerry was signing autographs a few rows away during intermission).
▪️The Ottawa Lebanese Festival will celebrate Lebanese food and culture with three nights and two full days of dance performances, cooking demos, and even a watermelon eating contest. July 13th through 17th at Saint Elias Centre, 750 Ridgewood Ave.
We'll see you tomorrow. – Martha and Darren
