I love Thursdays! Not only is it one of the few days I don't have soccer but it is the only day I'm Boyfriend free. And being Boyfriend free means indulgences in food, beer and reality shows I'd rather not name. Last night I skipped my usual routine and spent the last few hours of daylight sitting at a Pop Up Patio located on the Rideau Canal, close to the Ottawa Convention Center. The canal was the perfect backdrop to loud conversations, crisp goat chevre and pistachio pizza from The Flatbread Pizza Co. and cans of Vintage Lager from HogsBack Brewery. This may be my new Thursday routine - weather permitting.
