It’s down to the wire, friends! You’ve only got a few more days left to support local, explore the city, and breathe in some fresh air during the Bridgeland Arctic Adventure!

When: Until Wednesday, March 31st
Where: Community of Bridgeland – See directions here
No green, no problem! This weekend tee off at Hotel Arts, where you won’t find acres of grass, but you will find a high def screen! Here you can play a few rounds of virtual golf poolside, enjoy a drink or two, and even take lessons from a pro. This really is as good as it gets, Calgary! Check it out.
Where: 119 12 Ave SW, Calgary

Elevate your weekend walk through Fish Creek by stopping into one of Calgary’s many hidden gems, Annie’s Cafe! This underrated ice cream and coffee shop is located in the heart of one of YYC’s best parks and is guaranteed to make your day that much better. Get your steps in and eat your weight in Neopolitan!
When: Saturday and Sunday
Where: 15985 Bow Bottom Trail SE, Calgary (west of the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant)

Head to the mountains! This weekend we’d recommend seeing as many of them as you can, but not just because it’ll give you something to do! The spring season is actually the best time to go waterfalls watching due to the water pressure being so high from all of the ice melting and trust us, you won’t want to miss out on all of the action.
This weekend, pop into Starbucks Canada and get two drinks for the price of one! Until Monday, March 29th hit one of the many Starbucks Canada locations in Calgary and present your unique coupon code (which you can find at the link above) to the barista then make someone day by surprising them with something delish!
When: Until Monday March 29th
Where: Find your nearest location here
This weekend, we want you and your pup to hit the town! Calgary is spoiled for choice when it comes to pet-free patios, so really, it’s just a matter of where and when! Check the link above for some of our favourite dog-friendly restaurants in YYC.
Load up on the carbs and leave happy! This weekend, hit the taproom at Eighty-Eight Brewing Co., for the Donna Mac x Eighty-Eight Bagel and beer pop-up! There really is no better way to wake up on a Sunday.
