HOK #93

Our latest Human of Kitchissippi is someone many of you will recognize, especially if you're a regular at Bridgehead. What you may not know, however, is his backstory.  

Shake it baby

Laura Allardyce and Dani Corbishley have taken their deep passion and commitment to the world of dancing feet and jazz hands and transformed their love into Broadway Workout, a business that brings the community together to snap, sweat, and sashay to a playlist of all-time favourite tunes.

Harry had a little lamb 

During the golden years of chicken coops in Ottawa, there was likely no family more synonymous with birds and poultry (and some other barnyard animals) than the Showler family. Read Dave Allston's latest Early Days here. Don't miss the extra photos on the web edition. 

A real slice

The food scene on Wellington West just got a little more fun thanks to the arrival of Pubblico Eatery, a sports bar with a New York City vibe and an Italian-inspired menu. Located in the former home of Agave Grill, this family-friendly spot is co-owned by Rod Castro and Rani Aramoui, owners of Hintonburg’s 10Fourteen Bar, along with Vinny Cuccaro, whose family owned Capone’s Restaurant on Carling Avenue for 30 years.

Swapping dumpsters for composters

Petit Bill’s and Bridgehead Coffee at Wellington Street West and Smirle Avenue have decided to get rid of their garbage dumpsters and start a compost program.

Something sweet is happening at Carlingwood

For the third year in a row, Carlingwood Shopping Centre will be installing a beehive on the roof. All proceeds raised by honey sales will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank.
