Calgary Weekender: March 14 through 16, 2014


The Garter Girls
On Friday night you can get an early head start on celebrating everything Irish with the Garter Girls cabaret group, who will be putting on a fabulous performance for St. Patrick’s Day. The gals will be taking over the Voodoo Lounge at 720 16th Ave. NW and the fun will be underway at 9pm. You can purchase tickets in advance for $18. For $30 you can reserve a front row spot for the show.


Sculptures at the C2 gallery
The C2 gallery, formerly known as the Museum of Contemporary Art (104 – 800 Macleod Trail SE), is currently showcasing the work of Douglas Bentham, a sculptor whose work can be described as ‘Abstract Constructivism’. Over the last five decades Bentham has come to be recognized as one of the most respected sculptors in Canada. The current series of work on display is comprised of steel sculptures that were created and inspired by time spent in the U.K.  

Friday/ Saturday/Sunday

Bourbon Party Anyone?
Let’s see a show of hands for people that like drinking stiff, well-made, artisan cocktails. And let’s see another show of hands for people who are looking for a different way to spend their Thursday night. If this sounds like you, then you need to hurry up and get a ticket to our Bourbon Party happening on March 20th at the Bourbon Room (341 10th Avenue SW). Notable is cordially inviting you and your friends to join us for a special evening in one of the most exclusive joints in the city. For one night only you’ll be treated to a creative selection of cocktails poured by a shortlist of savvy bartenders from Calgary and Vancouver. The event begins at 5:30 pm and tickets can be found on here. For more information, contact 

Canvas Bistro
Starting on March 14th, Canvas Bistro will be serving a special Irish-inspired menu that everyone should experience. The Guinness mussels are a must-try item and the Irish-inspired affogato with peppermint schnapps and vanilla bean gelato will make you happy that you stopped in for dinner. For those of you who haven’t been to the bistro before, make sure to show up a little early so you have time to walk around the Gerry Thomas gallery located beneath the restaurant (602 11th Avenue SW). To make reservations, call 587-353-1299587-353-1299. The three-course set menu is $30. 


Bowling and Mexican Fare
People have been getting their fill of fantastic food all around the city during the Big Taste Festival, which is only on for a few more days. On Saturday you are invited to the Big Taste Bowl Doubles Tournament at the National bowling alley on 10th Avenue. Throw a few strikes while you enjoy a casual afternoon of Mexican classics like the gourmet tacos, corn fritters and churros. You’ll also get to enjoy an exclusive brew on tap from Calgary’s Village Brewery. There will be prizes for the best scores if you need another reason to come and check it out.


St. Patrick’s Day Run
For those of you who are looking for healthier options this weekend, you can look into the Original St. Patrick’s Day Road Race with the option of doing a 5 or 10-km challenge. The race gets going at 9am on Sunday, and following the run there will be a meal and prizes waiting for participants. Apparently the grand prize winner will be awarded his/her weight in beer. The event begins and ends at the Central Memorial High School on 5111 21st Street SW and the entry fee is $15.
