January 16, 2020 | by glebeadmin

There’s a lot to do in the Glebe this weekend if you’re a fan of food, music and sports, as the neighbourhood is full of fun activities from food and market events to an Ottawa 67’s double-header at TD Place.

The weekend starts early for food lovers in the Glebe, as scores of restaurants will set up shop inside the Glebe Community Centre for Taste of the Glebe Thursday night. Tickets sold out within minutes, but if you’ve scooped yours, you’ll be treated to an array of eats, sweets and treats courtesy of local restaurateurs. The samples start flowing at 6 p.m. Click here for more information.

Also, on Thursday, if you’re a caregiver, Abbotsford House in the Glebe is hosting a series of Caregiver Talks focused around transitioning your life to embrace the changes and make the caregiver journey more rewarding. This week’s speaker will be author and advocate Donna Thompson as she takes you through her book, The Unexpected Journey of Caregiving: The Transformation of Loved One to Caregiver. The talk runs from 6-8 p.m. Register by calling 613-230-5730 or click here for more info.

On Friday night, head to Irene’s pub for a solid night of indie rock and psychedelic folk with Claude Munson and Jonathan Pearce. Munson has carved out his own flare amongst the psych folk scene and continues to push the boundaries of genres, sounds and performance. Jonathan Pearce, of indie-folk outfit Winchester Warm is armed with a suite of new solo tunes that were released this past summer for his debut solo album Systems. Don’t miss this great night of music right here in the Glebe. Show starts at 9 p.m. Click here for details.

With the Canadian Hockey League ranking the Ottawa 67’s the #1 junior hockey team in the country, now is the time to see the country’s best in action. The 67’s just recently beat their franchise record for consecutive wins with 17 in a row, but the sneaky Pete’s from Peterborough snapped that streak with a 4-0 win over the 67’s last week. But they were back to their winning ways in the following game with a 7-4 beatdown over the Owen Sound Attack. They’re back at home this weekend with a tilt against Flint Friday night before heading back to the ice for an afternoon dustup vs. the Hamilton Bulldogs. The 67’s are the clear leaders of the OHL, with 62 points – seven points ahead of the second-place Peterborough Pete’s. Go, 67’s, Go!

On Sunday, head inside the Aberdeen Pavilion for the Ottawa Winter Farmers’ Market. Browse local produce, artisanal goods, antiques and handmades this and every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for more details.

It’s always a good weekend when you’re in the Glebe.
