Edmonton was full of surprises that I didn’t expect, the least of which was a little sandwich joint called Farrow. My friends Jesse and Fabs unequivocally agreed that I had to try The Grick, which may singlehandedly be the messiest and most deliciously yolky sandwich that I have ever eaten.

The Falls Music Lounge — Nelson, BC
The Falls Music Lounge is the restaurant in the hotel that the overwhelmingly successful electronic music festival Shambhala built.
