Fort McMurray Wine Snob

Buy Local Wines... B.C. is local right?

In June 2012, something unusual happened - a law change to make online shopping easier. More specifically, wine shopping between provinces. Until now, buying online from wineries in other provinces or even bringing it back in your car was illegal (while rarely enforced). Suddenly, the small B.C. wineries that produce such small quantities of wine that we can never hope to buy in-town can be ours online.

While I am a proponent of buying in our local businesses, I view these like buying produce from a local farmer. You will still buy in town; this is a way to expand one’s horizons.

Fort McMurray Food Fight

In the past few years, new restaurants have been popping up in Fort McMurray like dandelions in the spring.  I love a good dandelion salad, but that’s not the focus of this Fort McMurray Food Fight.  Here we rank two of the new kids on the block, Prime Social Kitchen vs. Hoodoo’s Bar and Grill, to see “Who Got the Flavor”.

Fort McMurray Wine Snob

It is said that millions die each year from bad water, yet no one has ever died from bad wine. I am here to help the people of Fort McMurray avoid bad wine, try new wines, and find bargains. Unlike some wine reviews, these wines are available here in town, taste better than their price tags would suggest, and are ready for drinking now.
