Did you hear the big news this week? A LUKES café is coming to EV in @nclinev!
When #NCLinEV opens this November, Calgarians will have not only an iconic place to read, learn and connect, but also a unique place to get their caffeine fix. The LUKES café space in NCL will be operated by a dynamic local partnership of Gareth Lukes (@lukesdrugmart) and Eric Hendry (Chef of @barvonderfels).
#YYC views from the top of @framslokker's Verve, where we celebrated the building's topping off earlier today. Verve will be ready to welcome residents home to East Village later this year!
On January 25th, put on your best tartan and join fellow fans of the Bard for the 2nd annual Robbie Burns Bash!
We are so excited to partner again with @thealexchc and @brickswineco for this Scottish-inspired affair. Join us at the St. Louis Hotel for food and drink tastings, Highland dancers, a bagpiper, and poetry readings!

The George C. King Bridge has been used as a photo shoot location, a long-table dinner venue, and a lookout point for Canada Day fireworks. And every day we see runners, walkers, cyclists and pups crossing the "skipping stone bridge".
Tell us what you use this EV connector for! (Quick access to @sidewalkcitizen pastries, perhaps? 🥐)
