vicky vacay deal of the day

There’s no professional hockey on television. That’s the bad news.

The good news? You can still get out and see Canada’s national sport up close and personal! And to help you to get all the puck action you need, Radisson Hotel Kitchener Waterloo is offering a rate for anyone who wants to watch the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.

Check out this deal on the Waterloo Region Tourism website. Show your game ticket at  Radisson’s front desk and ask for the special overnight room rate of $95 a night which is available for all home games.

Located in the heart of Waterloo Region just minutes from downtown Kitchener, Radisson Hotel Kitchener Waterloo offers a variety of first-class amenities including complimentary high-speed Internet, business class rooms, a fitness centre and an indoor heated pool. Recommends Waterloo Region for Langdon Hall Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi and Visuals Editor Julia Pelish made it a point to pay a visit to Langdon Hall in Cambridge, Ontario. And for good reason – it’s simply one of the best culinary experiences you’re going to have in this country. In the first-ever Top 50 Restaurants in Canada Guide, Langdon Hall placed second.

Brijbassi wrote “Jonathan Gushue demonstrates that Canadian cuisine exists — and it wouldn’t look out of place at the head of an international table of dishes.” 

He added that you must order the  “White-tailed Ontario Deer with Chestnuts, Smoked Venison Bacon, Anjou Pear and more ($49).” Click here to see the video and read more of the report on Langdon Hall.

Brijbassi: “Jonathan Gushue, executive chef at Langdon Hall, champions local cuisine and Canadian flavours. He doesn’t aim to replicate the rich flavours of France with decadent ingredients flown in from around the world. Instead, much of what Langdon Hall’s kitchen uses is found in its vicinity — not unusual in these days of the locavore movement, but the recipes are also from close to home.

When a meal starts with a bite-size biscuit of quinoa, flaxseed and hemp, with crème fraiche and honey made on the premises, the chef’s intentions are announced. Earlier, I had asked Gushue if Canada had a national dish. Although he said the closest thing might be tourtiere, a truer answer came with this opener. The flavours of that biscuit — which is the best granola bar you’ll ever eat — will find affinity with anyone from St. John’s to Tofino. A diner from another country may not get it, a Canadian will laugh as if Gushue has just shared an inside joke with you.”
