Whyte Avenue has lots of eateries - I love just walking down the sidewalk and browsing/window shopping. I think one of the Blues joints is on Whyte - the other one is on the South Side of the city if I'm not mistaken. Also a Farmers Market in the same vicinity.
Might want to consider having lunch at the LaRonde - don't think its called that anymore - someone here likely knows what the name is now - but its the rotating restaurant at the top of a hotel and you can see the river valley from there - . The River Valley is absolutely incredible!! Its likely the best (and its the biggest) in N. America.
Hope you enjoy!
thanks dixie,been to the LaRonde on a couple of occassions,very romantic place,enjoyed it with my sweeties.once i was there and only had two glasses of wine,i was feeling off,i think because of the movement.I amnot sure if i like it or not. our family member played piano there for 20 years or more.
the funny thing about our date nights they can go one way or another,when it comes too food,one thing i have learnt is to have good food in one's room for the end of the night,because all i want to do after 8 hours of dancing,snacking and drinking is lay my head down.Big Al'sis another blues venue which is suppose to have a good sunday jam.yes we will see,whatit is going to be closer to the date,hopefully i will find boogey patrol.
and yes between me and you dixie,my date nights aren't what they use to be,sometimes my fantasies are bigger then real life.thanks again
