Where Calgary - - ASK THE EXPERT - Au­thor of Calgary by Bike and Mike’s Blog­gity Blog

What’s the best way to cel­e­brate Canada 150 in Calgary?

By bike. Calgary has the largest bike net­work in all of North Amer­ica, and for the most part the city is flat, which makes bik­ing through our in­ner city and parks a breeze.

What’s your favourite thing to do in Calgary in the sum­mer?

The name mis­leads you, but the Sky­line Luge at WinS­port (page 34) is hands-down my favourite. It’s ba­si­cally real life Mario Kart. Make sure you do it at least three times, and then you’ll be ad­dicted.

Favourite cheap eat in town?

Cluck ‘n’ Cleaver (page 60) makes amaz­ing south­ern fried chicken. It also hap­pens to be Ni­cole Gomes’ restau­rant, who just won Top

Chef Canada All Stars, so you know it’s great.

What’s the best place to take a selfie?

The Peace Bridge and The Won­der­land sculp­ture. They never take a bad photo.

What’s your favourite restau­rant for a busi­ness meet­ing?

The pa­tio at Last Best Brew­ing (page 56) is the per­fect sum­mer des­ti­na­tion… even if you have to work.

What’s the best place to get a sou­venir from Calgary?

I love In­gle­wood (page 74). It’s a mix of stores that have been around for­ever, and cool new shops that re­mind me of places like Brook­lyn. It’s im­pos­si­ble to leave the neigh­bour­hood empty handed.

Where are the lo­cals hang­ing out?

There’s a rea­son ev­ery­one across Canada has heard of the Ship and An­chor (page 56), that’s be­cause it’s one of the coolest spots in Calgary. If the pa­tio is packed, don’t worry, there’s an of­fi­cial rule at the Ship where you can join a ta­ble. Don’t be shy, squeeze in and meet some new peo­ple.
