Art, music, movies, beer and chocolate last week on 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo

belt buckleLast week on 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo, we started out the week at Gallery on the Grand, meeting my favorite artist – Sasha. We opened a new Irish pub in downtown K-town – McCabe’s where the beer was fresh and the hors dourves, spontaneous. At kwag, we watched, for the tenth time and for free, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. We are not alone. I love that movie. After that, we visited Maxwell’s Music House for some new tun-i-o’s. Fast paced, mid-western style hockey was the next thing we just had to do with the Waterloo Siskins. At the Art Works show, I met more artists, so many artists and bought a belt with a horse on it. I’ve always wanted a big cowboy belt and with a name like K.D. Marshall, can you blame me? It goes with my new mustache too!

So by then, it was already Sunday, Halloween, and it was time to cross over to the dark side. The little chocolate bars were ubiquitous but the trick-or-treater’s scarce and not that scary. I got a sugar buzz.

Finally, and to round out the week, we golfed indoor, got glee and attended the annual Waterloo Region Business Awards.

It was a week unlike any another.

Around the offices of 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo, we are making fun of ourselves and each other. The gang is still growing everyday, adding new friends with more ideas. We’re currently over 458 buddies. That would make the next round number 500. I like round numbers; I just don’t trust them.

Someone asked me last week, if we’d ever run out of things to do at 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo and suggested we go to the beer store and drink beer in the parking lot. Not a bad idea. Thanks for the suggestion, Colin Gullberg. I think we’ll wait till spring for that one.

We had another suggestions too. Lisa Roussel suggested a new business – the Mosaic Ma Vie Studio and Gallery, offering art classes.

We had a question too that I asked for help on. JW was looking for some places around the Region that have old buildings or old ruins or old (and I mean old…like 1950’s or earlier) broken down trucks for photoshoot locations for my business. Thanks for the help to those who answered the call.

So go on, tell your friends. Be bold. Make suggestions. Ask advice. Give feedback. You must have a favorite place to go or thing to do that you can share. We will all be richer for the experience.
