This Weekend in Saint John (Nov 4-7)

After almost a two month hiatus with a new baby, here is a long overdue installment of “This Weekend.”  The little man is napping all on his own now (I don’t have to hold him), even if it is just a short time,  and is giving me a bit of time to get back into the swing of things.  I am going to have to rename myself UptownGirlSJ+1 though, because baby comes with me to events now…  so if you are still in the dark about my identity, look for the 20-something with a baby exploring the uptown!

Here is what you can look forward to this weekend:

4 days left of CHOP CHOP Feastival for Foodies Week
Participating restaurants will offer you one or any combination of the following specials during the week:

3 Course Dinner for $30
2 Course Lunch for $12
Chop Chop Plate $10

Participating Restaurants: Alley Gria, Billy’s Seafood, Hilton, Burbon Quarter, Magnolia Café, Chilli and Olive, Church Street Steakhouse, Grannans, Happinez, Mexicali Rosas, Opera Bistro, Saint John Alehouse, Scores Grill, Steamers, Taco Pica, Thandi, Urban Deli

And the other events:

NEW BRUNSWICK DAY WEEKEND!!  Instead of escaping the city, take this wonderful time of year to get out and do stuff in Uptown Saint John.  There is lots on deck in terms of attractions and entertainment, so take advantage of as much as you can!  Big bonus: the weather reflects the celebratory mood of the weekend. 🙂
