One Man Two Guvnors at the Citadel

When I was offered tickets to see this play about which I knee nothing other than the fact that Kelly-Dawn was interested in setting it, I jumped at the opportunity. I don’t personally know a lot of local actors, and save a few from A Christmas Carol and Jesse Gervais,

Bacon. It has absolutely nothing to do with real estate, and yet it has been a major part of my marketing strategy and personal branding for several years now. I’ve got over a dozen bacon-themed t-shirts, 2 bacon ties, bacon shoes, a bacon belt, etc. I’ve even cofounded an annual

David Dorward is my MLA and my friend. He is the real deal. I wish more politicians were like him-down-to-earth, fun, kind, and not full of himself. For the past 13 months, he has grown out his incredible mop of hair for the purpose of donating it to be turned

Best Bar None Edmonton Food Tour

Food at Mercer Tavern Edmonton

12/12/16 1:11 PM

“What the heck is Best Bar None, anyway?” That was my question when Dave Young invited me to attend a walking tour of 4 BBN accredited downtown Edmonton bars. At first, it seemed odd to invite a straight-edge guy to a series of bars, although it didn’t take long for
