Brunch at Wakefield’s Chez Eric

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. So, we’ve already written about the wonderful little restaurant Chez Eric, located in nearby Wakefield, but I hadn’t actually been there until this weekend. Sure, LTO co-founder Amy talks about this cute little spot…a lot…but it wasn’t only her review that led […]

Help me plan my staycation!

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, things have been a bit quiet around here lately – the holidays are a busy time!   But, in the spirit of LTO, I made a decision last night: instead of hopping off to Vermont or catching […]

Happy Anniversary to all of our Local Tourists!

In case you haven’t heard, today is kind of a big day for us: it is our one year anniversary! One year ago today, we started this blog with a mission: to get more involved in our own city, to encourage others to do the same, and to share, share, share, every step of the […]

A taste of TEDxOttawa: Spoken word from Brandon Wint

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. As you may know, I’m a huge fan of many of Ottawa’s spoken word poets.   So of course, it was a delight to see the talented and very heartfelt Brandon Wint take the stage at TEDxOttawa today. Before the “official” videos come […]

The (delicious) Taste of Preston Street

Last weekend, the lovely folks over at Savvy Company invited Local Tourist Ottawa founders Amy and Jessey, as well as our pizza-loving contributor Geneviève, to attend La Vendemmia’s Taste of Preston Street Food and Wine Show. As I’m sure you can imagine, we were thrilled. Celebrating the abundance of Preston Street’s Italian and international restaurants alongside […]

Pieces of the world: The Ottawa Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show celebrates its sapphire anniversary

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. We have a lot of different interests here at LTO: Hilary likes food. Brian likes dance. Emily likes fitness. I’m proud to say it: I like rocks. This is why, every year, I get so excited about the Ottawa Lapsmith and Mineral […]

The deliciousness that is freshii

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. Okay, I have a confession to make. More often than not, I’m so busy that I eat lunch at my desk. I know I’m not alone, but lately, I’m so so busy that I haven’t been doing a great job of packing […]

Regine Paquette and Katie Frappier  co-own Victoire Boutique, a women’s boutique specializing in Canadian design. The shops are celebrating five years in the business this Saturday with its biggest sale ever taking place at both shops during the day, and a big party in the evening at the Dalhousie location.

Capital Slam 2011 Finals

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. I’m not sure that when people think of the Nation’s Capital, they often think of poetry. Well, they should. In 2010, Ottawa won its second-consecutive national slam poetry title, and on Friday night the city’s 2011 team was decided. If the passion-filled show these […]

Surprise dance party in the ByWard Market

Jessey is a writer, digital communications strategist, and the founder of Local Tourist Ottawa. As some of you already know, while walking aimlessly in the ByWard Market on Saturday I saw this poster: Obviously, I needed to get to the bottom of this, so I sent out a tweet asking Ottawa’s Local Tourists for more info.
