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…

Hungry in Red Deer: Westlake Grill

It was my mom’s birthday a few weeks ago (ok, almost a month ago, I’m in the weeds!) so I made a reservation at her favourite restaurant, Red Deer’s Westlake Grill at Heritage Ranch. This has obviously forever secured my place as her favourite child. Sorry, Kirsten. For the uninitiated, Heritage Ranch is an adorable…

Model Milk

Summer Feast is almost over, guys! You still have Saturday and Sunday to get down to one of these 13 amazing restaurants for a prix fixe menu of up to $35 per person. You deserve it! Model Milk’s space has a really fun, almost industrial vibe. The skylights in the high ceilings bathe the main dining room…

Pigeonhole

I’m so excited about Calgary’s newest foodie festival, Summer Feast! Running August 11 – 20, Summer Feast 2017 includes prix fixe menus at 13 of Calgary’s coolest restaurants. I’ve been itching to try Pigeonhole for a while and it’s always buzzing when I walk by, so I was excited to get a table on a busy Friday…
