It was rib-licious at Ribfest this summer!

Posted by on Aug 8, 2011

It is definitely saucy. This year’s Rotary Ribfest in St.Catharines’ Montebello Park was a huge hit. Bringing locals and travellers together to enjoy beef and pork ribs in many different sauces and barbequed many different ways. One word…YUM! I decided to check out the Ribfest with a few of my good friends on Friday night. And luck must have been on our side as we were able to listen to a Beatles tribute band (the Caverners). They were spectacular; playing some of the popular Beatles’ songs and even dressing the part.  So with a full draft beer in one hand and a rack of ribs in...

I scream, Hayley screams, we both scream from ice cream!!

Great Eats in Port Dalhousie

Posted by on Aug 5, 2011

You will never see a more beautiful place than Port Dalhousie, unless you’re travelling to Niagara Falls. Port Dalhousie is a great place to bring your family, enjoy the beaches, or even whet your palette at many of the main street and beach front restaurants. Hayley and I enjoyed dipping our toes into the not-so-warm lake (well I did, Hayley was being a bit of a chicken), as well as wiggling our toes in the warm beach sand.   We also had the pleasure of enjoying Port Dalhousie dining during our lunch hour…we chose Kilt and Clover. Kilt and Cover had an amazing selection of...
