Here we are at the start of a new week. The early winter may go on hold for just a little bit, and hopefully we’ll get some melting done this week. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of winter and am ready for it to be over. ?

This week boasts a great mix of events throughout the city. We’ve got some great theatre, some hockey, a ton of concerts and so many Christmas markets!!

 Where will I be?

I haven’t fully planned out my week just yet, but for sure, I’ll be at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe on Saturday night to see Matilda, the latest Orpheus play. I’m so excited about this based on the cast that I’ve seen so far. Some of my favourites from past plays are showcased here! And, on Thursday night, I have a swanky wine and cheese to attend courtesy of the U Ottawa Communications Department that I’m looking forward to! I haven’t included this in the events calendar, as I don’t believe it’s open to the public unfortunately.
