Most Awesome Fall Adventures in Thunder Bay

Written for CBC’s Fresh Air morning show on CBC Radio One. Aired Saturday October 5th, 2019, live from Thunder Bay, Ontario. As dazzling colours begin to transform the landscape, they say you will fall in love with Thunder Bay at this time of year and it’s absolutely true. It’s the picture perfect season with so many Insta worthy sites, but most importantly thrilling adventures. Bird’s-eye view of Nor’Wester Mountain Range/Maple Trees: Northwest Heli-Tour Fall  in Thunder Bay  is a very magical and colourful season, and some landscapes simply demand a view from above. You can see Thunder Bay’s awesomeness from[…]

This is 35.

Those that know me… know I love birthdays. My birthday, your birthday, your friend’s birthday. BIRTHDAYS!!! Yes, you’ve been to my weeklong celebrations. But for some reason this year is different. 35 is definitely a hard year to swallow. I remember thinking 30 was a little scary, but this birthday forces me into a totally new age bracket— I am now “35 and over”, which spans from 35 until… I’m pretty sure, the end 😉   I really can’t tell which one is more horrifying…the actual number 35, or saying it out loud. Thirty- five. Thirty-five. No matter how you see[…]

The Bay Awesome TBay 2019 Summer Bucket List

It’s summertime and livin’ is easy!! (and I’m going to make it even easier for you). I’ve rounded up all of my favorite summer activities, places, spaces, adventures, and even food, in the Thunder Bay area to make sure you’re getting the best of the bay in what the season has to offer. By the time September rolls around, you’ll be thinking “that was the most AWESOME summer ever.” Because we all know how the summer months can just fly by— faster than that sailboat you promised you’d go on with your friends, so get moving!  With Lake Superior, exotic looking animals,[…]

King of All Spaces and Places

It’s the Godzilla of nightlife in Thunder Bay. Well actually, it’s the three headed dragon that is Godzilla’s arch enemy— bigger and golden. The new King Ghidrah that is located above Sovereign Room, (ya I always wondered what was up that magical, twisty staircase as well), is a super sleek lounge that combines sultry Asian design elements with a relaxed energy and style.  The intimate, modern space, that you might have known as the Dragon Lounge back in the day, is bathed with Sakura accents, emerald blue bench seating, and exposed original gold walls, giving guests a circa 1950’s vintage[…]

Life in Full Bloom.

I was having cocktails with one of my best friends the other night, going on and on about that new Beyoncé documentary on Netflix… you know, the one that chronicles everything that went into that unforgettable Coachella performance, (the show that was sooooo worth the midweek sleep deprivation). Anyhow, halfway through talking about the Blue Ivy appearance, I noticed she wasn’t listening to a word I said… HELLO!! Beyoncé … Blue Ivy…personal stories from the Queen Bey. How rude. I knew I wasn’t boring her with my conversation,  so why the hell was she not paying attention!? After calling her out on her[…]

Bay Mine.

It’s the time of year for cards with red hearts, chocolates, lame teddy bears, flowers, heart shaped boxes of candy, forced dinner dates, and  public demonstrations of pure admiration. As you can tell, I have mixed feelings towards Valentine’s Day. Ya I know, how novel… a 30-something year old, independent woman that doesn’t like a day about couples and LOVE. Oh stop. No, I don’t sit home alone, belting out the new Ariana Grande album eating ice cream with a dozen cats.  I don’t like cats; And romantic hardship isn’t my reason for feeling blah about the holiday. Very much like why[…]

Live at the Lionheart

With a handful of tour stops, appearances on national TV shows, a huge homecoming concert, their name slapped on a beer can and even a hot sauce label, The Honest Heart Collective was everywhere this past year…but with a new year, comes a new idea. So what about a live gig from the four-man crew in the perfect acoustics of a recording studio? They told their fans to “meet at the boulders on Red River”—little did we know, it would be the beginning of an awesome night out in Thunder Bay.  This February, the local Indie Rock band stripped down[…]
