Back from Las Vegas!

We’re back from a week in Las Vegas and while this trip was mostly focused on attending one of my favourite conferences (DEFCON) we still managed to try a lot of new places to eat, and I can’t wait to share the experience a bit more beyond random Instagram updates. Highlights include a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, a quietly vegan-awesome Italian restaurant by the Las Vegas airport, venturing to downtown Vegas for pizza, Nerding, the traditional visit to Ronald’s Donuts, and actually eating at Las Vegas buffets for the first time ever. But for now, we’re taking this “Civic Holiday” (Which I still know as Heritage Days’ from Alberta…) and decompressing a little, cuddling with our kitties (who did actually seem to really miss us), and getting ready to leave Toronto for a second time this month later this week. It’s nice to leave sometimes, but it’s so very nice to be home right now.

Vegan Mofo The End: Saskatoon, SK – The Land of the Living Skies. aka, The Passage way to Elsewhere.

Once upon a time I lived in Saskatoon, SK so I’m ending MoFo where I began writing this blog. Parts of me hated living there (the parts that don’t like to be cold) and parts of me loved it (the parts of me that loved finding fun stuff to do against all odds). People tend to pass through Saskatoon on their way to somewhere else. While I get it, Saskatoon has a surprisingly large amount of things that are actually pretty cool, so maybe you’ll consider sticking around for a day or two on your way to elsewhere. Resources: While I’ve written most of this from experience and memory there are quite a few resources you can check out if you want to learn more.
