FAB Things to Do: 3 Winter Wonderland Adventures

This month is busy with events and social gatherings. The Metropolitan Grill has re-opened and looks FAB! The interior has been completely remodeled and designed to be extremely urban. I love this spot after work with some friends for a cocktail and tasty bites.

The crowd heavily consists of Calgary’s young business guys and gals. The music is a nice mix of Top 40 and oldies. The service is outstanding and they offer an array of wine varietals and yummy cocktails. I highly recommend this hot spot as being Calgary’s urban venue.

We’ve had a pile of fresh snow over the past few days which means the mountains are ready and waiting with perfect winter conditions. If you don’t have plans for the weekend I suggest packing up the car and heading to the mountains.

 

Here are some winter wonderland activities I recommend in Banff:

 

1. Skating – spend the day skating on the pond by the Waldhaus Pub in Banff. (Skate rentals are available from Kippers downtown).

This outdoor rink, behind the Fairmont, has a heated shelter and crackling fire for staying warm.

2. Tubing – Fly down a mountain on a tire tube at Mt. Norquay. They have a tow rope that takes you up the mountain for exhilarating rides down!
Tubing is a great activity to do with your family or friends.

3. Dining – After a day of fun in the Rockies your stomach is sure to be crying for a hearty meal. Hit up the Maple Leaf Grill for a seared steak cooked to perfection. I’ve been here several times and honestly have never had a better steak experience.

Warm up with a cup of hot chocolate to start your meal.

Stay warm, and don’t forget to spring ahead on Sunday!
