I hope everyone had a great week! Despite my broken ankle, I was still able to get out to a few events, so I had a good time too! This upcoming week has a great variety of events, something for everyone!
First off, we’ll start with live entertainment. I’m grouping concerts in this one as well since there are a lot of really great shows to mention, music and otherwise. Going chronologically, and starting with Tuesday, the Winter Wish Comedy competition continues at Yuk Yuk’s. Thursday night features RuPaul’s Drag show with Shangela at Algonquin Commons Theatre, and Roch Voisine across the street at Meridian Theatres @Centrepointe. Friday night, you can catch Twin Flames at the NAC. Saturday is a big day for concerts!! The headliner for the day is the long awaited Lynyrd Skynyrd who is playing at the Canadian Tire Centre. If that’s not for you, maybe you’d like an acoustic concert by Matthew Good at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe. And if that’s still a bit too much, may I suggest ED The Sock live at Mavericks. Finally, Sunday at the Canadian Tire Centre, you can go se the hilarious Jeff Dunham with his Passively Aggressive tour.
It’s not just a week of concerts though, the Ottawa Improv Festival is running Thursday to Saturday at Arts Court. The line up can be found on my website. Also this weekend, for all you newly-engaged couples….the Spring Wedding Show is on for two days at the EY Centre. AND finally, the always busy Kidsfest is on Saturday and Sunday also at the EY Centre. If you’ve never taken your kids to this, you really should….they’ll love it!! And then when you need a stiff drink after, the Royal Oak is just down the road!
Time for my sports listing. The good news is, we’ve got baseball back with spring training having started last week! It’s the most exciting time for Jays fans, and then May/June comes along, and we see what kind of year it’ll be. Although, let’s be honest, we can already tell. Hopefully the kids develop well, and we’ll have a contender for years to come!! Back to Ottawa though, The Sens (or whatever is left of them) are back in town on Wednesday to take on the Edmonton Oilers! And the Ottawa 67’s play the Mississauga Steelheads on Sunday.
Where will I be?
I’m into week #4 of limping around with a cast on, and to be honest, it’s getting really tiring!! Depending on how things go, I would like to get out to the Local Talks event on Tuesday at Shopify, and I will definitely be at the Indulge Ottawa event Friday night at Sala San Marco!! This event looks so incredible, there will be nothing keeping me away from attending!! Finally, I may make it out Sunday to the monthly Sports Card and Comic show at the Jim Durrell Centre, but we’ll see.
Last week, I was able to get out to two events that are worth mentioning. On Wednesday night, I went to the legendary Blue Man Group at TD Place. They were so good!! You can read the review by clicking here!
Secondly, I got to go see Cabaret, a Suzart After Dark production. It was also really great. You can read the review by clicking here.
