Where Calgary - - CONTENTS - SEEMA DHAWAN, Editor

I’ve al­ways been fas­ci­nated by sto­ries. I grew up in Mum­bai, the land of Bol­ly­wood stars and ex­trav­a­gant movie sets, so the charm of celebri­ties wore off quickly. Sto­ries, how­ever, stuck with me.

In the hit tele­vi­sion se­ries Fargo, a cen­tral char­ac­ter, Lorne Malvo, has an un­usual world­view. In one scene, he warns a po­lice of­fi­cer who has pulled him over to let him go. “Now, why would I do that?” asks of­fi­cer Gus Grimly.

“Be­cause some roads you shouldn’t go down. Be­cause maps used to say, ‘There be drag­ons here.’ Now they don’t. But that don’t mean the drag­ons aren’t there.”

Want to fol­low the drag­ons? Take a tour of fa­mous film lo­ca­tions in Cal­gary, from

In­cep­tion to Broke­back Moun­tain (page 19), an ex­ten­sive Fargo tour (page 20) or dine like a celebrity at fa­mous lo­ca­tions (page 48).

Avoid the drag­ons and ex­plore fall hikes (page 24) right within the city. Let your imag­i­na­tion run wild as you sip on drinks by some of Canada’s best bartenders (page 22) be­fore you head to a show (page 30).

If you’re look­ing for in­dul­gent din­ing op­tions paired with the city’s at­trac­tions check out At­trac­tive Din­ing (page 18) or shop till you drop in th­ese neigh­bour­hoods (page 38).

This sea­son sur­rounds us with sto­ries: of spir­its and leg­ends, with film and theatre, and brews and bites of fall har­vest.

Ex­plore beau­ti­ful Cal­gary dur­ing crisp au­tumn days and go down th­ese roads, even if there be drag­ons here.
