    😭 Still no Canadian Pies on 104. They must be having some issues?

    I just don't get what they are going for. I walked by tonight and Kelly's was absolutely packed and not a single person in Slapshot. The staff were all sitting outside on their phones at the picnic tables. There was some kind of modern indian music blaring loud outside. It's a very confusing...

    If (when?) that does happen, what is the ideal thing that should replace it? What would go good in that location? I feel like with established places like Kelly's, DOSC and even Birddog now, the last thing this area needs is another bar. There hasn't been a lot of success in this location. I...

    The menu for Slapshot on 104 is up on their website. Take a gander if you'd like. See if you can spot how many spelling errors there are. Hint: It's more than 4. Also, it looks like the owners are review bombing the google reviews with fake ChatGPT generated reviews again. Not even trying to...

    It was pretty much a year behind schedule. I imagine that doesn't happen without some major hiccups and unexpected expenses. It was originally supposed to be converted into a hotel, then when covid hit they changed it to a residential building. Because of how the building is designed, many of...

    I think The Peak guys are probably wishing they had just tore it down and rebuilt from scratch after they have watched The Falcon go up almost as quick as they finished. Feels like The Peak has been a huge disaster, feel bad for them. They got covid'ed big time.

    That's great news. Nice to see 104 alive again.

    It's really been amazing to see. The LRT couldn't have been completed at a better time for this cup run too. I've never enjoyed downtown more in my life than the last few weeks. Vibe is just insane, especially along 104th. It does feel like a turnaround growth year. Ice District was such a great...

    Two months, ouch. I was thinking 6 months, but maybe I am too optimistic. Kelly's is an example of a well run, exceptional business. Really a pillar of downtown. Probably what most businesses strive to be. I really hope that the city makes 104th street pedestrian-free permanently. It makes...

    Really nice to have that happen. I had the opposite experience. My sister came to town May 10th for probably the only time she will ever come, and it was the weekend with the smoke fires filling downtown and everything was still dirty and nasty. Oh well. I will agree, Saturday was an exceptional...

    104 farmers market was packed. Good day to have it. Insane vibe. In other news, it's almost the 1 year anniversary of when Canadian Pies announced their location under Icon 1, and still not open. WTF? https://dailyhive.com/edmonton/canadian-pies-edmonton

    CWB sold to National Bank. I wonder how this will impact their downtown move to the manulife building?

    The Stanley Cup Finals are bringing a lot of eyes to Edmonton. The downtown has never been this clean haha. It's going to be a wild couple of weeks. Next Saturday is going to be insane with the Elks game, Oilers home game and Farmers market debut on 104.

    By the way, I will still check it out and support them by buying a couple of beers. I want to see all businesses on 104 succeed! If the owner happens to read this, don't let me discourage you - prove me wrong.

    I think it depends on the type of restaurant. Bernadette's has opened just a few steps down from this one and looks amazing. They did such a wonderful job of it and it is a very unique and welcome addition to the neighbourhood. I think it will do well. This, on the other hand, doesn't really add...

    I am curious who the landlord is for this property and why this was the direction they chose to go. I guess their main sign is permanent? Looks like the "Now Open" sign is giving them a bit of trouble. I feel bad for these folks because I don't wish anything bad on anyone, but I just know in my...

    Well, it looks like "SlapShot" bar and grill is open on 104th street - at least until they get sued by the Oilers for copyright ??? lol. It already has a review on Google, a 5 star review. Someone (I'm not saying it's the owner...) clearly used ChatGPT to write it. Hilarious... I mean, come on...

    Peak Tower | 99.06m | 23s | Lighthouse HM | Davignon Martin

    Original projected date was March. Then it changed to July. Now I notice the website just updated: COMING SOON DECEMBER 2023 With covid + inflation + The Hyatt backing out on them and all the delays I can't even begin to imagine how over budget this has gone.
