Issue 590 Volume 3 Number 90
It’s Tuesday, August 16, 2022 and we want to wish a Happy Birthday to Politico Ottawa, which celebrates its first year of daily newslettering today.
▪️Tonight and tomorrow the NAC welcomes Amai Kuda et Les Bois for an evening of Afro-soul that explores healing. Free. 7:00pm on the Wood Terrace.
▪️Ottawa City Woodshop’s September courses have gone on sale and they’re selling out fast, as usual.
▪️Tickets are also on sale for the North Lanark Historical Society Apple Pie Fest and Classic Car Show on Sunday September 18 in Appleton Ontario. We’re telling you now because only those who buy tickets by September 15 will be guaranteed a slice of pie and vanilla ice cream. So if you love fresh apple pie on a Sunday afternoon, get booking.
▪️Time is running out for local performing creatives to submit their proposals to Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre. The Theatre wants to develop projects from Ottawa and Gatineau based creators that match its mandate: “We’re drawn to where the political and the personal intersect - the politics of everyday life.” Proposals are due August 24.
If you read the news last week that the Stoked Ottawa food truck was abruptly forced to vacate their Youville location, worry not. Orléans’ loss is Scott street’s gain: Stoked will be pulling up alongside La Troca de Sí Señor and the Garlic Press trucks at 1426 Scott Street and they’re opening TOMORROW (Wednesday August 17).
