- I was on 4th Street on Friday night, and only had time for a quick dinner. Stopped by Purple Perk for something quick - and the service was fantastic! The food was good too, but mostly, I was impressed by the service. This is definitely the kind of place that, if I lived closer, I know I would be there every day.
- Following dinner, I went to The Tech Shop to pick up my Calgary Women's Run race package, and also picked up some shoes. Again, fantastic service - I showed the staff my shoes, they recommended 2 new kinds that were good, explained why they were good and helped me to try them. One pair was perfect and I now love them. Check them out for all your running/walking stuff!
- For an early dinner on Saturday, I checked out Local 002 in Glamorgan (not yet listed on this site, but owned by the same company). The salad was wonderful, and there were so many other yummy-looking things on the menu that I know I will be back. And, they were super understanding and supportive of my crazy food allergies, even explaining the menu and adjusting food so that I could enjoy it.
- Finally, the Calgary Women's Run on Sunday morning - many wonderful sponsors, including Amp Radio Calgary, Lululemon, Fast & Female, Community Natural Foods and a number of others came out in support of the Calgary YMCA and put together a great women for a whole bunch of runners. Good times!
Huge recommendations for these businesses - if you're interested in any, I'd definitely recommend checking them out!
