Embracing Food, Fashion, and Fun
With back to school season here and fall on our doorstep (don’t blame the messenger), it’s time to embrace new fashion and have some comforting food while you’re at it.
Start your morning off right with some organically roasted coffee from The Green Spot Café (1821 Hamilton St). This place will certainly get you amped up for a day of shopping with enough coffee beans to satisfy any craving from around the world ranging from the Americas, Africa and Arabia, to Asia and the Pacific. While you’re there, don’t miss out on their renowned cinnamon buns. These treats are baked fresh and available only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Here’s an insider’s tip: you may want to order more than just one of these delicious cinnamon buns when you see customers walking out with several boxes!
While you’re downtown, make sure you check out Regina’s fabulous local shopping scene complete with trendsetting boutique’s you’ll be sure to come back to. Dress up the man in your life in the latest styles from Oliver’s Men’s Wear, Colin O’Brian Man’s Shoppe and VIP Men’s Wear.
Getting hungry again? Stop in at the new Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria on Scarth Street. Watch as your pizza is made from scratch before your eyes in a warm and lively atmosphere. Not feeling pizza? Don’t worry, even their salads and appetizers are delicious!
Ladies, we know what you want—a great outfit that represents your style! Your next favourite outfit is ready to be discovered in Regina’s boutiques that feature some of the hottest designers and labels. If you love it, buy it at Stella and Sway because we know you’ll look and feel great! Uforia Muse has cutting edge items for day or night. With two locations (one on 13th Avenue and the other on Quance Street) it’s sure to be a convenient stop. Trendsetters can also head to Queen V Fashion House to find inspired clothing & accessories. And don’t forget to complete any outfit with a stunning piece of jewelry. Hillberg & Berk has just the right amount of sparkle from a Riders-themed bracelet to Signature Key necklaces to match any item.
Trying to think of what to do in the evening? Whether its date night, an evening with friends, or a night out with the family, check out the latest production taking place at the Globe Theatre. From Sept. 16 to Oct. 4 All Shook Up will get you toe-tapping and feeling the groove all night. Buy tickets in advance on the Globe Theatre website.
After the show take time out to relax at Beer Bros. where they use the great flavour characteristics of a variety of beers to create a unique menu experience. You can’t go wrong with any order you make, whether it’s the Innis & Gunned Beerogies Appy or the Beerogies & Sausage. Want a more chill scene? Try The Capitol Jazz Club & Tapas Bar on Hamilton Street. This newly opened spot has quickly jumped into one of the best restaurants in the city with its unique cocktails and live music performed on Tuesdays and Saturdays. So relax, enjoy yourself, look fabulous, and above all, come back to Regina and visit again.
