FAB Things to Do: 130km and 14 turns in 60 seconds!

Hello everyone. I had an exhilarating time this past week. Are you ready to have your socks blown off? I have the FAB new adventure to add to your list of things to do in Calgary. Last weekend I took my team bobsledding at the Canada Olympic Park. This adventure was jaw dropping at 130kms and 14 turns in 60 seconds!

The start line – looking out to a black-hole of nothing!

The adrenaline rush kicked in as soon as we were standing at the start line looking across at the ice curving straight down, to what looked like a black-hole with no end.

We went through a very quick but thorough instruction course and then were fit with helmets.

The most exciting thing was the G-force; you couldn’t even keep your head up straight while flying around the bends. I felt like a bobble-head doll.

I highly recommend this activity, this isn’t only perfect for a group of friends by a fun date idea too.

I recently attended the Ooh Lala Fashion show at 80th and Ivy. This was a Great evening of new fashion and networking.  If you’re not familiar with 80th and Ivy, it’s a FAB new restaurant located in the bustling 17th Avenue district.

With an open concept interior this is such an inviting place with a very impressive menu. The bar looking over the open kitchen is very warm, and fantastic for those larger parties. This urban venue is touched with sophistication, but yet has that cozy local feeling. Make sure you place your reservations in early, as you don’t want to miss out on this FAB dinning experience.

 

Stay tuned for next weeks Finds!!
