Union 613, Southern Comfort, and Tweeting Up

It’s not too often you get to go to a pub with a secret room that’s hidden behind a book shelf.  Union 613 in Ottawa’s Centretown neighbourhood has such a room, which serves as a Speakeasy.  The communal tables of Union 613 are where we gathered with various patrons of the Ottawa food scene for our 4th Food Bloggers of Canada and 1st HootSuite sponsored event (#FBCFeast & #HootUpFeast for all you social media junkies).

Roots, Shoots & Winter Greens

Jess Weatherhead and Robin Turner started Roots and Shoots Farm on a plot of land south of Ottawa about four years ago. Since then, they have been steadily growing, and just fulfilled 250 CSA shares for the season, with a waiting list already for 2014.
