The 7th Annual Candy Cane Lane Run that took place on November 20 was a complete success. Having been used as a way to promote both indoor/outdoor physical activity and healthy lifestyles, it was also able to raise food and cash donations for the Project S.H.A.R.E Christmas Basket Program.
Runners from across the Niagara Region, surrounding regions, and Western New Yorkers took part in this amazing 5km run; starting and ending at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Cairn Croft Hotel. Not only did the participants get to enjoy the day with their family and friends, it was also an opportunity to give back to Project S.H.A.R.E. Whether you were competing for fun or competing for the prize, everyone in my mind was a winner.
I hope you all enjoyed yourself, and if you were not able to make it maybe you might make it out next year!!!
There are so many options for dining in Niagara Falls but you gotta try this! From the outside it looks like a dive, but the food alone is to die for; located just down the street from the Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel on Lundy’s Lane. If you are visiting Niagara Falls or live in the area and have never tried it, the turkey/gravy sub is a must from The Flying Saucer. This delicious, homemade sub can get a little messy, but I am sure you will be licking your plate clean after one bite. When we ordered in for lunch one day, it reminded us all of the day after Thanksgiving when you get to make your own turkey sub with your own gravy… but this is better!
One word: YUMMY. They even deliver! Could be a great eat even late!
Syndicate is a local bar located near the Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel—owned by the popular Taps Brewery—which features Niagara made beer. From light lagers to delicious reds and cream ales, this bar and grill will change the way you enjoy beer.
But this is not the only thing Syndicate offers; great dinner selections (3 courses) starting as low at $20, or try their other lunch and dinner selections. Hayley and I decided that we wanted wings and we must have chosen the right day because we were able to get 2lbs of medium wings with a pitcher or beer for $15 plus taxes. Now that’s a good deal!
So, if you’re looking for a relaxed patio bar to chill with friends, or a cool place to gab with family and enjoy great food and local beer, you must check out Syndicate. It’s definitely the place to be!
A date night turned intense mini-putt competition. My boyfriend and I decided it would be fun to play a round of mini-putt and the loser would buy the other a drink. He is an avid golfer and I am.. well.. not. I tried to warn him that I was surprisingly good at mini-putt but I don’t think he believed me until we started our game.
The Super Putt offers 18 holes of different green layouts and is conveniently located down Lundy’s Lane from The BEST WESTERN PLUS Cairn Croft. Adults play for $7 and Children 12 and under play for $6. The holes all have funny little names. My favourite, Lover’s Leap, involves you shooting your ball over a small stream running through the course. It’s a simple, fun activity that I think many people have forgotten about. I would highly recommend going to The Super Putt on a date or taking the whole family. Spice it up; bet who’s going to win, take blind shots or whatever other creative things you can think of.
So now you’re wondering what the outcome of my intense competition was. I was beating my boyfriend most of the way; I’m clutch at the close up shots (he was rather impressed). Sadly, on the second last whole, I lost my momentum and he beat me by 3 strokes. Needless to say, that night, I bought the drinks.
