The Week That Was And Is – April 21st, 2010

Did you see Jack Bauer…er, I mean Keifer Sutherland was kicked out of a strip club. Not a big surprise I suppose, when you take into account Keifer’s party-ways, but how awesome is it that this whole event went down on a Wednesday. I think they should be lucky it was just his shirt that was off! But back to food; did you start planting your garden yet? Seriously, how crazy is the weather right now in Edmonton…

  • I noticed Vue Weekly had an article about Edmonton’s Portuguese restaurant Spago. I’ve never been, mostly because it’s quite the drive, and quite frankly I’ve only ever heard the occasional good thing about the place.
  • I don’t know about you, but Kim’s recent visit (here) to Pattaya Thai, made me wish I knew a hockey team that went out for late night eats. What an invite!
  • Local blogger Foodie Suz, has reemerged in a very spring-like fashion. The new blog is now focused on travel, and can be found at Foodie Suz Travels.
  • Speaking of local bloggers, did you get a chance to see the amazing job Maki did with her fondant covered cake. Now if only the princesses were edible.
  • Dunkin Donuts revealed the top 12 fan created donut combinations. I love the creative in both the naming and flavour combinations. I think I’d have to go with the Mornin’ Paper – A chocolate butter kreme-filled donut with white icing, topped with chocolate sprinkles.
  • I’ve been getting so many emails from Dairy Queen about their 25th anniversary Blizzard specials, that I’ve actually now taken myself off their email list. I’ll save you the trouble of signing up and let you know that from April 19th – April 25th, if you buy a blizzard, you can get a second for 25 cents. Sweet deal.
  • Strolling down Whyte Ave, Sarah pointed out a new Lebanese restaurant opening up in the 108 block. Another ethic choice to the ave is always nice, and with both a Mexican and Vietnamese option near by, this corner is on fire.

  • Speaking of nice weather, Sarah and I ventured over to a friends house for a BBQ/board game evening. I was glad to help in the food prep, and let’s just say it’s a good thing I did, because there are so many things to learn when throwing your first supper gathering.

  • I picked up another package of applewood bacon from Todd, at Old Country. This stuff is seriously addictive. Oh and he also makes the best Cornish Pasties around.

  • The No Reservations episode from this week was titled Food Porn. With this, being the second food porn special, I wasn’t too surprised by what I saw. Although, Ron Jeremy was a bit of a surprise..seriously, who found this dude attractive. Anyways, it’s worth a watch, but nothing spectacular. More importantly, Andrew Zimmern is back with another season of Bizarre Foods. Stopping a remote section of Thailand, Andrew is in for a ride. And after being given a sneak peak of next week’s opening episode…probably not for the faint of heart.

  1. My wife and I saw Ron Jeremy in the waiting area at Edmonton International a few years back. Ugly, ugly man.

  2. Thanks Chris:)

    So you mean, I wasn’t the first to tell you about the DQ Blizzard thing? sheesh. I hate being the 101 person 🙂

    We enjoyed the double chocolate cookie dough and the reese’s. I love chocolate but the reese’s won it in our fam.

    • You were the first person, I’ll give you that. Because really, the email spam robot that sends me those sorts of messages doesn’t really count.

      As a cookie dough eater, I don’t think I was even aware of the double chocolate cookie dough option…sounds delicious!

  4. I’ve eaten at Spago once so far and I keep meaning to go back and give it another try. One dish was good (something with eggs but I can’t remember what exactly) and the other dish was just ok. The meal wasn’t enough to make it really memorable, but the staff was friendly.
