Say “aloha” to this food truck

I heard rumour of a food truck traversing the streets of Lethbridge, but didn't think twice about it until I saw this tweet from from @Masson23: Keep on the lookout for Hawaiian Treat's truck, and if you eat there make sure to take some photos or tell us about it in the comments! Hawaiian Treats: Facebook …

Something smells spoiled on the southside

Last evening, I was shopping for veggies for a sweet & sour dish I was making for dinner. What I found was indeed sour…spoiled even. Disgusting. And this isn't the first time I've seen something like this at this particular store, which I won't name…but it does start with a "S" and end with a …

Asian Supermarket’s “Food Story”

One of my favourite grocery stores in the city is the family-owned Asian Supermarket. Patricia sent a shot-out on Twitter about a unique community-oriented idea they came up with: Food Story! What would it be like, if all the little goodies, that we create in our lovely kitchen, could be shared with others? What if …

Cinco de Mayo?

It’s official, Lethbridge is in it’s sixth month of winter. Ironic, isn’t it? That “Cinco de Mayo” elicits ideas of  warm weather and celebration. There’s one beverage that, if the weather here was ever pleasant, I could see myself enjoying outside on a patio today: the daiquiri. Did you know that it was Ernest Hemingway’s …

Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are.

Last week, I posted about some upcoming dance classes. As thanks, Maxine offered me the opportunity to attend one of her classes for free. Although the group was already 4 classes in, my natural grace and rhythm took over. That, and it was a beginner 2-step class. Standard fare if you’ve ever been to Essies, …

Ginger convention at the Galt

Join the Galt for this verrry special celebration of the Scottish poet’s birth. Try haggis, join in on the songs, and enjoy performances by …

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure

My liver can attest, I’m a connoisseur of beers. Imagine my delight when I discovered that Lethbridge has its own beer festival with over 100 types of domestic and international brews, probably including Old Style Pilsner, one of my dear favourites (among MANY others).   Tickets are only $10 in advance, available at The Wine …

Lethbridge Sausage Party!

If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. That’s what I always say.

Last night, Scott (a.k.a. Heavy P) hosted an Oktoberfest party. We sat down to a feast of Oktoberfest sausage, sauerkraut, perogies and my special bacon+onion gnocchi dish, all accompanied by a wide assortment of fine European beers and great Bavarian music! The aroma in the household was very manly, to say the least.

Eat to your heart’s content

That’s right, it’s International No Diet Day, where finally you have an excuse to gorge yourself. Today, we can all take a break from dieting (like I need to!), and exercise (lol) acceptance for all fatsos, despite their front asses and back boobs. International No Diet Day aims to raise public awareness of the dangers …

UofL Campus Community Garden Dig

This weekend the members of the Roots Garden Club and many others from the UofL community got together to dig the first ever on-campus garden. A communal Campus Community Garden, it boasts 9 private plots available on a first come, first serve basis and a rather sizable communal plot which will have up to 30 people tending the delicious vegetable and plant life that will soon be in this ground. To sign up for the garden individual plot or communal plot, or just to stay in the loop and be involved and participate in this amazing venture, follow this link. Although I missed most of the fun (re: putting in stakes, fences and digging lots…) I did get out there today to see the finished product and help with some clean up.

Many people have worked very hard on getting this project underway in the past two years and it is great to see something this positive bringing so many groups from around the campus together. Now, a campus wide composting project perhaps?

And the #1 live music venue in Canada is…

…not The Slice. [audio:https://lethbianlove.ca/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/priceisright-losinghorn.mp3] Initially I questioned how they even made the list, but the reality is that competition for live music in Lethbridge has been sorely lacking. But when opportunity arose, they successfully filled the void that the Tongue ‘n Groove had left behind. So I must congratulate the owners of The Slice, Jesse …

TacoTime: A Lethbridge first

Unfortunately, it came as a surprise to me today to find out that TacoTime is an also American brand. Regardless, in 1978 the first TacoTime was opened on Mayor Magrath Drive, in the location currently …
