Covert Ottawa Weekly Newsletter: Ottawa Events December 15th – 22nd

Today, December 16th kicks off the last full week before Christmas!! I still haven’t really started my shopping, so maybe I’ll think about doing that soon…..maybe. With Christmas approaching though, there are fewer major events, but still lots to do around town!

Let’s start with concerts! Some of my favourite local (and semi-local) bands have gigs this week around town, so let’s run through them in order. I’ve decided to start a new section of this newsletter:

Concert Picks of the Week!

Monday, The Tenors Wonder of Christmas tour is at the NAC, Tuesday Harmony Concerts presents Tom Jackson’s Huron Carole at Dominion Chalmers, Thursday JW Jones and Friends are at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe, Friday Alanna Stirling is at Deacon Brodies, and Ambush is at the Barley Mow Merivale. Saturday and Sunday, you can see Jann Arden with her Christmas special at the NAC, Elijah Woods and Jamie Fine are at Barrymore’s and The Retrogrades are playing at Atomic Rooster.

Longer running theatrical shows typically take Christmas vacation for a couple weeks, however at the Gladstone, you can catch “A Christmas Carol” from December 15th – 22nd.

The Sens have two games this week. The Nashville Predators are in town on Thursday, and the Philadelphia Flyers visit the Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday.

A full list of this week’s events can be found here!!

Where Will I Be?

I will be ANYWHERE this week. My last final exam is Tuesday night, so I’m looking forward to celebrating having a life again!! My vacation from school starts on Wednesday, where I’m planning on heading out to Shopify to see the Christmas Market that features many of Ottawa’s local Shopify customers. I love the Shopify head office, so any excuse to go check that place out, I’ll take it!! That’s it for me for the week though, I’m sure I’ll find other things to do, but I do have my first family Christmas event this weekend, so that’ll be fun….oh yeah…shopping!!! Eek.

I attended Christmas Glow at the EY Centre on Thursday night. This event will be running pretty much daily until January 4th and is so much fun for visitors of all ages!! Make sure you get out and see this fantastic event. You can read my review here.

I’m leaving these last two announcements up here from last week, as they are both still relevant going forward! Christmas Glow has had a fantastic showing of support, and judging by clicks on the NYE post, there are lots of you still looking for something to do!
