Izakaya Tomo Japanese Tapas Bar

Izakaya Tomo Japanese Tapas Bar

For a city in a province with no coastline, Edmonton has an unusually high number of sushi restaurants. However, Izakaya Tomo is nothing compared to any other in town. They serve Japanese Tapas and it’s quite refreshing. On top of that, they have hands down the best desserts at a Japanese restaurant in Edmonton because they’re artisan crafted to perfection. Don’t believe me? They’re 2015’s Avenue Magazine pick for best Japanese Restaurant.

The Music Video That Took A Year To Create

The Music Video That Took A Year To Create

Metropolis Winter Festival

Metropolis Winter Festival

Edmonton today is now marketed as a Winter City, but it hasn’t been a smooth transition without some flops. The Metropolis Winter Festival was perhaps one with the highest controversy. Since Churchill Square isn’t put to use during the winter months, why not add several large pavilions to draw people in? Sounds like a great idea on paper, but the result was an expensive eyesore in the square for months. This was then put on…

Maisie’s Magical Christmas House (and more)

Maisie’s Magical Christmas House (and more)

Maisie’s Magical Christmas House was everything the name suggested. The residence of a home renovation store owner, the house took months to set up on the North end of Edmonton.

Occupy Protests Reach Capital Region

Occupy Protests Reach Capital Region

Few people know that the entire Occupy movement started when a student artist decided to protest in the nude on Wall Street (a picture can be found in the Journal about a month before it became mainstream). Since Bloomberg owns the media, they decided to have a media black out of the event. That backfired because of the power of the internet, and the rest is history. Across the world in late 2011, Occupy protests…
