Broccoli, beans in season at Farmers’ Market, Lansdowne Summer Art Series on this weekend in the Glebe.
The Ottawa RedBlacks are the only undefeated team in the CFL currently, and they’ll put that record on the line tonight in Toronto against the Argos.
Ottawa went toe-to-toe with Calgary last week in a back-and-forth affair that saw overtime and an eventual 26-26 tie, just the 100th tie in CFL history.
Although the RedBlacks didn’t lose, they aren’t happy sharing the points with the Stampeders. They will be out for blood at BMO Field in Toronto tonight, as they look to continue their dominance in the East Division.
But a falter could prove detrimental to the RedBlacks’ chance of solely hanging on to first place in the league. An Argos win will put them one point ahead of the RedBlacks in the East. But a RedBlacks win will volley Ottawa to a 3-point lead over its eastern foes.
It could be an emotional night for RedBlacks starting quarterback Trevor Harris, as he is going back to his old stomping grounds for the first time since he was picked up by Ottawa via free agency in February. Harris spent four seasons with the Argos before signing with Ottawa.
RedBlacks main pivot Henry Burris is still out with a minor finger injury.
If you’re not willing to make the drive to Toronto for tonight’s tilt, head to the Glebe and catch the game at one of our many pubs along the traditional main street or at Lansdowne. Grab a burger and a beer and cheer the RedBlacks as they look to put another two points in the “W” column.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
With the RedBlacks off this weekend and the Ottawa Fury not returning to TD Place until July 27, the Ottawa Farmers’ Market and the Lansdowne Summer Art Series are taking over Lansdowne this weekend.
Broccoli is in season, as are beans, cauliflower, cucumbers, kale and scores of other fruits and veggies at the farmers’ market. Come grab some goods and check out artisan crafts, handmade goods and other treasure. The market runs every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Aberdeen Square at Lansdowne Park.
Once you’ve gotten all your goods, stick around for some live music at the Lansdowne Summer Art Series, as this week features Chorale Tilelli of Ottawa. The shows start at 5:30 and are always free in the East Court of the Aberdeen Pavilion. Click here for more information.
