Via Sharp Magazine

Happy Monday, folks! We’re hoping that your long weekend was good, and that you’re ready for another week of fun in and around the city. The weather isn’t looking amazing, so we tried to find a balance between indoors and outdoors activities.

Here are 8 things to do in and around Edmonton this week.

CATCH A NEW SERIES ON NETFLIX

Binge-watching in quarantine has basically become a sport. And if you wanna step your game up, check out these incredible new shows. They’ve got options for every genre. So get comfy and get watching.

CHECK OUT A SUMMER JOB

Last week, the Government of Canada posted thousands of summer jobs for Canadian youth this summer. Their goal is to employ roughly 70k people aged 15-31 through this initiative, so there are definitely jobs out there for every kind of worker.

SUPPORT LOCAL RESTAURANTS

A couple of weeks ago we talked about Breaking Bread, a website that basically crowdsourced restaurants offering takeout and delivery. Well, that list has snowballed into well over 1200 restaurants Canada-wide. Browse the list and get a nice meal!

TRY A NEW BOARD GAME

Honestly, we probably could have put out this guide a little sooner, but sometimes that is the way the cookie crumbles. Our favourite choice on the list? A board game that has you try and attract different kinds of birds to your nature reserve. Sounds supremely relaxing.

EXPLORE STREET ART AROUND THE CITY

The good folks over at Rust Magic have a custom map for pretty much all the street art that Edmonton has to offer. Our thoughts? Pretend to be a critic and go on a little tour one afternoon.

DO SOME SPRING SHOPPING

If you’re up for it, a fair number of retail stores across the city have reopened. So, if you really wanted to see how that new shirt fit before buying it, you can now go check it out (safely) in-store. Not a bad deal!

SUPPORT A LOCAL PLAY

But not by visiting the theatre. The play ‘Tracks’ is put on in collaboration with the Fringe Theatre. It plays out like a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ story, but done in real-time by real actors. Sounds like it could be a good replacement for the usual fare.

GET A LITTLE LEARNED

Lucky for us, museums and art galleries also reopened last week! Whether you want to swing by a private gallery or are ready to return to the Royal Alberta Museum, these options are now available! Have fun and learn a couple of things.

And that’s our list of the best things to do in and around the city this week. Now get out there! Or stay home! Whatever you pick, we hope that we’ve given you some fun options.
