Weekend What’s Up: Rock the Rink, 67’s Hockey and Feminist Fair in the Glebe

November 7, 2019 | by glebeadmin

"Get ready to rock, skate, shoot, score, slice and dice because there’s enough going on in the Glebe this weekend to keep you trucking from Thursday to Sunday.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will kick off a solid weekend for you on Thursday, as they bring their Rock the Rink Tour to TD Place Thursday night. Expect a night of dazzling figure skating from some of Canada’s greats, including Patrick Chan, Elvis Stojko and more. Virtue and Moir will headline the skate with a farewell dance, as the two Olympic medalists have decided to hang up the skates. Don’t miss your last chance to see this gracious pair in action. Thursday night at TD Place, 7 p.m. Get your tickets here.

If you’re looking to do some early Christmas shopping than you’ll want to head straight to Knifewear for their annual Garage Sale. The sale has become a legendary day for chefs and knife aficionados. Score great deals on rare Japanese knives from Thursday through Sunday at Knifewear. Click here for details.

It will be a battle-of-the-best Friday night when the Ottawa 67’s take on the Oshawa Generals with first place in the OHL on the line. The Generals are currently the top team, but the 67’s nine-game winning streak has put that lead in jeopardy. The 67’s are just one point behind Oshawa and the winner of Friday night’s game will go home with first place locked up. If that’s not reason enough to get your ticket, then perhaps the fact that it’s toonie beer night will. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets.

On Sunday, you’ll be able to browse produce, artisanal goods and trinkets without freezing your butt off. The Ottawa Farmers’ Market heads indoors at the Aberdeen Pavilion this Sunday. Come out and get some Christmas shopping done early. The Market is open every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for information.

Once you’re stocked up for the weekend, head over to the Horticulture Building for the 6th Annual Feminist Fair beginning at 11 a.m. The event is a vendor’s market and showcase for non-profit organizations who will be offering everything from buttons, pins and patches to jewellery, clothing, books and more. The Fair runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is free for all ages. Click here for details.

Another fun weekend in the Glebe!
