Title

“Summer + Local Beer + Local Pizza + Quidi Vidi,” boasted the ticket page for the pizza pairing event put off by Quidi Vidi Brewery and Olio which sounds like a winning combination to me.  St. John’s has been blessed with what has so far been an awesome summer and hopefully, you are getting out there and enjoying the weather. I couldn’t think of a better way to take a break from my summer session courses at MUN than to visit Quidi Vidi for some beer and pizza on July 19th.

Ramen with a Taste of Newfoundland

Adam Gollop and Jasmine Kean took on a culinary storm when the opened Bad Bones Ramen on Water Street this past June. Shockingly the downtown food market had not come across a ramen selection to date and Bad Bones was the first to introduce the idea to Newfoundland palates. The restaurant has a wide variety of ramen choices and Jasmine and Adam are damn good at what they do. You can see people lined up outside the restaurant waiting to be served. A few times the restaurant has had to close their doors because they ran out of food. The response has been more than they ever expected. “We’re elated and a little in awe. We are aiming to please but…

True believers assemble! Free Comic Book Day is fast approaching. The annual event taking place on the first Saturday in May promotes the North American comic book industry and attempts to bring new readers to their friendly neighborhood local independent comic book shop. Free Comic Book Day started in 2002 and is coordinated by the comic industry’s single large distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors but the idea came about one year earlier when retailer Joe Field wrote a column for a comics magazine that noted the positive cultural and financial effect that successful feature films based on superheroes were having on the comic book industry. It was eventually decided that the first Free Comic Book Day should be held on the…

There isn’t much better than a grill cheese sandwich unless you up the ante and add some fancy cheeses, breads, and other interesting ingredients. If I have just piqued your interest and didn’t turn you away by my lame title, then you really should check out Lisa LeShane and Oh My Cheeses at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market (as well as several festivals throughout the province). Oh My Cheeses uses homemade bread, locally inspired jam and cheese to make their sandwiches and Lisa’s menu is just as clever as the name for her business. Oh My Cheeses came out of what Lisa calls “pizza nights”. “Basically, we’d make our own dough and then come up with fun pizza ideas,” she…

I love pizza just as much as the Ninja Turtles do so I think I know pizza. At some point during February, I passed by the old Stogger’s Pizza location and saw that a new pizza place was setting up shop. A few days later, my roommate sent me the link to their website via a Facebook message and I was intrigued and a few days after that I was kicking off the weekend with some take-out from Olio. It was right in the middle of the St. John’s Burger Battle but I wasn’t feeling it so much so I decided to spend my money on something I was pretty sure I would enjoy. According to their Facebook page, Olio…
