Gyro at Quizno’s

I was completely overcome with emotion when Quizno’s reached out to me a few weeks ago. No, I wasn’t receiving a lifetime achievement award for the hundreds of chicken carbonara subs I’ve consumed since high school. Instead, they wanted to mail me a gift card so I could try out their limited-time-only gyro made with…

Jack Daniel’s Rye Launch Party at Sub Rosa YYC

I’m pretty sure I scored the title of Coolest Wife Ever (temporarily until my next hangry meltdown) when I dragged Matt through last night’s blizzard to the official Canadian launch of Jack Daniel’s Rye at Sub Rosa YYC, the literal underground lounge tucked underneath the Guild on Stephen Ave. The event was organized by Evangeline…

Hungry Abroad: Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina was never at the top of my travel list, or even on my list at all until Matt suggested a day trip away from the Dubrovnik leg of our honeymoon (full Dubrovnik post here!) to visit the Vjetrenica Cave (pronounced “vyuhtrenitsa”) in the village of Zavala. It was about an hour and half…

Pie & Prosecco at Pie Junkie Kensington

When I texted Mr. Hungry to tell him we’d been invited to an event called “Pie and Prosecco”, he immediately wrote back, “Isn’t that basically your dream event?” When I told him it was to celebrate the opening of Pie Junkie’s new Kensington location (tucked right in behind Red’s and across the street from Midtown)…

Happy Birthday, Mill St. Calgary Brewpub!

I was so excited when Mill St. Brewery invited Matt and I to come over for some drinks and snacks tonight to celebrate their first birthday at the Calgary Brewpub location on 17th Ave. We wandered over after work to check out what was on offer. The place was packed already by about 6 p.m. despite…

Cucina & Restaurants for Change

Michelle from Wino in the West and I have been on a run lately! Tonight we had a girls dinner at Cucina in support of Restaurants for Change. This is a cool annual event where restaurants across Canada donate all of the proceeds of their dinner service (this year it’s today, October 18!) to support community…

2017 Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival

Last night, Michelle from Wino in the West and I went to the 2017 Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival at the BMO Centre. It’s such a great event every year. Incredible Calgary vendors and importers get together to bring food, wine and liquor samples into one room, then they donate proceeds to local charities fighting…

Hungry Abroad: Dubrovnik, Croatia

I’m back! I have a few quick posts I want to get up about the food Mr. Hungry and I enjoyed on our honeymoon, then it will be back to our regular programming very soon! By the time we got to Dubrovnik, Croatia, for the first leg of our honeymoon, we’d been through a nearly…

Hungry in Love (and on a short break!)

Friends! This week has been a whirlwind – Work was busy, I checked out the Block with Parker PR, I finally started watching Shameless on Netflix, I got my first French manicure (hello food closeups!) and then Matt officially became Mr. Hungry in Calgary when we said our vows in front of 85 of our nearest…

Parker PR Media Mingle at Block Kitchen & Lounge

Guys, you know I’m not fancy, but I was so delighted to celebrate a restaurant’s third anniversary with a media mingle at Block Kitchen and Lounge organized by Parker PR. Ellen Parker and her team work on some of my favourite Calgarian events and brands, like Beakerhead, Calgary Folk Fest and Oak Tree Tavern, to name a few….

Hungry in Banff: Coyote’s Southwestern Grill

Continuing from where we left off after last weekend’s beautiful dinner at the Juniper Bistro in Banff, we woke to a pretty slow start the next morning and waited until Kirsten joined us before we went out for a little nature walk. Ernie took us to the Bow Falls Trail, which you can follow for…

Hungry in Banff: Juniper Bistro

My mom and Ernie started a new tradition of spending a family weekend in Banff at the end of each summer. This was the second year we did it, and it was so much fun! A major highlight for me was dinner at Juniper Hotel Bistro. Perched on Mt. Norquay, the dining room and huge…
