I may be an adult, but I still get a little silly over the Queen City Ex. Growing up in Regina, the first week in August was always one of the best parts of the summer. Continue reading
Patio season is in full swing, and what could be better than eating delicious food and drinking cocktails in the sunshine? Listening to live music while you do it of course!
