Yep, thats where we're likely going for our 1st at the end of July. We went there last year and loved it for just a random date night.

On a completely unrelated note... Does anyone know of a good place to go out for dinner on Monday night, for an anniversary?
Notable, it is freaking delicious.

wedding location

I will second the Big Rock brewery. Went to a wedding there in 2010 and it was a cool atmosphere (a bit more casual feeling) and a lot of fun.

Yup that is the place.

It was 5 years ago when I was there for the wedding and the message then was that since it was on the Reservation it could not allow booze as the Reservation was officially Dry. Perhaps due to the arrival of the casino they've changed that rule??

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that me and my business partner from Frontier Metropolis (our Calgary T-shirt business) were interviewed by Chris dela Torre from Calgary Eyeopener and the interview will air tomorrow aka Monday morning at 7:40am on CBC Radio1 99.1 FM

Hopefully we don't sound like a bunch of bumbling fools lol as we were both kinda nervous.

This is SCREWED! Happened in Singapore, Ferrari runs a red light and t-bones a taxi. It's all caught on video by the taxi driving just behind. Taxi passengers are dead as is the driver of the Ferrari. Somehow the passenger survived.

If you think thats nuts, we saw people swimming in the bow on the zoo island last saturday.

A sign that place needs TLC soon, we found a needle hidding in the rocks two feet away from where we were sitting.

This is the first summer with the Environment Canada website showing the Air Quality Health Index… why does Calgary’s AQHI sometimes seem crazy high? At the moment it’s a 7.
