Spending another summer in the Exchange District has definitely opened my eyes and diversified my taste palette. There was never a shortage of festivals to attend, new restaurants to dine at and chic boutiques to stare hopelessly into.
In the spirit of celebrating the end of the season, here are a few of my summer highlights:
- Festivities at The Forks
- Yoga & Zumba in the Park
- Let's Do Lunch Downtown
- The Winnipeg Fringe Festival
- The TD International Winnipeg Jazz Festival
- The Chinatown Street Festival
- Heck, all the festivals!
- ... And did I mention food?
Burger and fries from Boon Burger down Sherbrook
A mixed greens salad from Deer + Almond in the Exchange
An assortment of empanadas from Corrientes Argentine Pizzeria in the Exchange
Lahmaçun (Turkish yoghurt pizza bread) from Arkadash Bistro & Lounge on Portage
Vegetarian nacho platter from La Bamba on Portage
Needless to say, my summer was nothing short of amazing - and I hope yours was, too. Here's to another eventful school year, and an upcoming collection of interesting tidbits straight from downtown Winnipeg from your Downtown Dweller.
