GFYYC Goodie Bag – Round Two!

By | Blog, lifestyle, News & Events | No Comments

Signed, sealed and delivered! On Tuesday, September 20th, 2016, we officially delivered the first shipment of the GFYYC Goodie Bags to subscribers in and around the city of Calgary.

We’re happy to report that we were able to fill our first goodie bag with over $58 worth of “goodies” contributed by various local businesses. Here’s what we had inside:

Local favourite The Coup provided each subscriber a copy of their cookbook full of recipes to be tried out at home. Paterson’s Cabin hand-crafted Celiac-safe lip balms for each and every person. Vin Room provided gift cards inviting subscribers to come into their Mission or West Side location and enjoy complimentary amuse-bouches for up to six people. And there was even something sweet! Cookie Mama submitted a buy one get one free coupon to pop in and grab a cupcake or a cookie.

We are now hard at work putting together all the details for our next shipment, to be sent out this December. We are looking for local businesses that offer gluten-free products (food or beauty) as well as restaurants in and around the city that feature gluten-free items on their menu. We want to be able to connect our large gluten-free community with all the businesses that are out there working hard to create and provide options for them—and this is how we plan to do it!

We have committed to one full year, with four shipments—one per season. And if it goes well, we’ll keep it going after that!

Registrations are officially open for next shipment, so if you haven’t already signed up—do it fast!

Una Pizza + Wine Restaurant Review

By | Blog, Dine Out, Dining | No Comments

It was a Saturday night, so we knew it would be busy, but when the friendly hostess at Una told us that for a table of 4 it would be 1.5-2 hours wait, we all agreed in unison to go have a drink elsewhere and wait it out, as they take down your number and give you a call when your table is ready. We had all been there many times before and knew it was going to be worth the wait. We finally were seated at 10:30pm, and the place was still packed, with a line out the door.

Awko Taco

By | Blog, Dine Out, Dining | One Comment

I dunno by what sorcery the Mexicans have devised a means of delivering such a fulfilling and satisfying meal on these 5-inch, handmade disks of cornmeal pleasure, but it works. Brian Gebbie’s Awko Taco in Cochrane faithfully follows the two-thousand-year old tradition of serving tasty goodness, handful by perfect handful.
