ED­I­TOR’S NOTE

A spring fever grips the na­tion’s cap­i­tal.

e city comes out of hi­ber­na­tion – hun­gry for sun­light, fresh air, new flavours, new ex­pe­ri­ences… and old tra­di­tions. Ottawa’s world-class fes­ti­val sea­son blooms in spring, and it can sat­isfy any crav­ing (p. 12).

An­other cure, of course, is a sunny pa­tio. We’ve high­lighted the best places to work on your tan while sip­ping a cold one (p. 29) – in­clud­ing one of my favourite Mex­i­can restau­rants, in hon­our of June’s ree Ami­gos sum­mit. at po­lit­i­cal event will mark Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s fi­nal visit to this city while in of­fice. In tribute, our Hot Shop­ping sec­tion pro­files “Obama cook­ies” in the By Ward Mar­ket Square, and “Obama scarves” at Viens Avec Moi (p. 20) – not to men­tion one-of-a-kind gift ideas for Mother’s and Fa­ther’s Day, and grad­u­ates (p. 21).

e city is flow­er­ing with events Here and Now (p. 8). Stop and smell the tulips – and take in the tastes and tunes – at the Tulip Fes­ti­val (p.13), or en­joy the ar­rest­ing beauty of Hog’s Back Park (p. 54). Visit un­for­get­table at­trac­tions, like the in­ter­ac­tive Star Trek ex­hibit at the Canada Avi­a­tion and Space Mu­seum, or Ul­ti­mate Di­nosaurs at the Mu­seum of Na­ture (p. 43).
