Last week on 365 things to do and Kitchener Waterloo we visited Briethaupt Centre for the young, well seasoned and everyone in between. We stretched our way to fitness at Stretchfit. We ate club sandwiches (with chips and a wedge of dill pickle) at Ethel’s Lounge on King Street and then we went across the street and browsed the stacks at Old Goat Books. Doors Open Waterloo Region took us to historical places around Waterloo, Kitchener and Cambridge. We went to the medieval faire in Waterloo Park and also the KOI Musicfest in downtown Kitchener where 140 bands performed all kinds of music in all kinds of venues. We took our pooches to the pool for Surfdogs and the chilled out with the KW Symphony Brass Ensemble playing loud and brassy in Waterloo Public Square. Our friends at the Chambers of Commerce got together and got us together at the annual Regional Trade Show and finally we sat down at Kitchener City Hall Rotunda with Terry Fallis, the author of The Best Laid Plans, this year’s One Book One Community selection.
The list is growing everyday at 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo. There’s never nothing to do dad, always something new. There are 261 participants now and we’re just getting started. Tell your friends and go ahead, be bold, make a suggestion. You must have a favorite you can share. We will all be richer for the experience.
Speaking of which, we had some great suggestions from our participants like Rose Cora Perry who performed live at Kitchener Civic Square. She is a Canadian national touring artist and former front woman of the award-winning rock band Anti-Hero. Howard Flair suggested we celebrate peace day at Yuk Yuks and Lesley J Vander Welle gave us the heads up for an upcoming storytelling at THEMUSEUM.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
