So, what else is happening in Canada’s Capital Region beyond the huge celebration that is Winterlude?
The National Arts Centre is presenting what should be a show-stopping performance of Guys & Dolls this weekend (Feb. 5-7) while the Third Wall Theatre Company is presenting Shakespeare’s As You Like It from February 4 to 14. On Saturday, February 6, between the matinee and evening performances, you can attend Tickled Pink, where you can sip wine while shopping and sampling some neat finds from local retailers and women-centric businesses. The shopping is open to everyone, not just ticket holders (though wouldn’t you want to catch the show?).
For sports fans, check out the Sens Skills Competition on Sunday, February 7 where your favourite Ottawa Senators compete to see who has the hardest shot, who’s the fastest skater, etc. It’s fun and inexpensive (tickets start at $8).
Get all dolled up and enjoy the Snowflake Ball at the Hilton Lac-Leamy on Saturday, February 13. Beyond having a great time, you’ll be helping to raise money to fight Crohn’s disease, colitis and colorectal cancer.
Keep the good feelings going because February 12-19 is Kindness Week in Ottawa. Created by Rabbi Reuven Bulka in 2008, this initiative encourages everyone to Choose to be Kind.
