Things to check out in Ottawa, hmmm…. Well, I mean, there are the basics, like parliament and the canal (even though it is empty right now in preparation to make it a skating rink), you can go up to Gatineau park and look at all the pretty colours. If you wanna drink, I mean, anywhere in the market is fun (you can check out the market too). I personally like the smaller bars and pubs and stuff that are just a little bit out of downtown, or way out in the suburbs, but If you want a really cheap drink, you can always do to La Maison (uOttawa student bar) and you can get a 10$ pitcher of Canadian… But one thing you HAVE to do, is get a Shawarma (my personal suggestion is Castle)

I am no stranger to Ottawa, and many of these things I have already tried. Shwarmas are awesome and the market is a blast(saw some pretty crazy stuff last time I was there). I am more curious about any good bands playing this weekend, a wicked bar or even a huge house party.

Ahhh, you should have been more clear 😛

Well, it is halloween weekend so there will be no shortages of things to do. I am not really doing anything big so I can’t really point you in the right direction, but I am sure if you walk around Laurier or the general Sandy Hill neighbourhood you will find endless house parties!

If you are going to be downtown or near any campus, pick up an X-Press or “24” weekly newspaper on just about any street corner. It will tell you what’s going on. If you are going to be near one of the campuses (Ottawa U, Carleton U, or Algonquin College), hit the student centers and check out the posters or the inevitable nearby pub.

(I’m an old married guy so am not in ‘the know’ myself.)

If you need some friends tomorrow evening you should swing by Father’s and Sons by the uOttawa campus. I will be there with some people- just look for a gaggle of girls.

I miss F&S. Are August and Steve still manning the bar? Last I was there was 2008 :(.

Hey! I just got home from F&S. Cajun Beef Burger and Keiths ftw!

No way. I just got home from F&S too!

We were definitely there at the same time.

I had some F&S breakfast this morning, mmm. But wtf, how did I never notice that the Breakfast Special, which is 5.29 after 11am (cheaper before 11am), is always 5.29 on the weekends – no matter the time? For the last two years, I’ve been rushing to get there Saturday mornings, hungover, to get there before 11am… for nothing? Grr.

Hahaha! At least now you know! Wou can save yourself the stress from rushing in the future! Their breakfasts are completely worth it.

I remember when Moosehead was $3.50. Do they still do $2 drinks on Thursdays?

Sebach 0 points1 point2 points 23 days ago[+] (1 child)

Sebach 0 points1 point2 points 23 days ago[-]

I don’t think so. I go every Thursday night and I’ve never had no 2 dollar drinks. 😦 Then again, we usually just get pitchers on Thursday.

joe_canadian 0 points1 point2 points 22 days ago[-]

Damn. The Pitchers were $10 on Thursdays.

Dude, where are you staying in town? I’m like a block off uOttawa campus (broke ass student here too) if you’re anywhere near here and want to grab a beer. There’s a few house parties going on around here on Friday but it’s all pretty much pre-game stuff before we head downtown for halloween festivities. I’m going as Tommy Wiseau from the worst movie ever made.

The Apartment613 blog writes about what’s going on in the city and has an events calendar. Not sure if anything there will be of interest… http://www.apt613.ca/

Depends what kind of bar scene you’re into.

There’s a ton downtown. Lots of Halloween parties going on at bars and pubs!

Museum/government buildings, outdoorsy stuff, and bars. In other words, go to Montreal instead.
