What’s Cooking May 16 to 23, 2017?


May long weekend is finally here! What better way to unofficially kick off the start of a beautiful Nova Scotia summer than with the perfect Caesar? Combine that with sunny weather, delicious appetizers, cycling as well as cheering on your fellow Blue Nosers and it’s pretty much the perfect weekend.

Tuesdays at Five Fishermen

$5 appetizers just in time for you to pop in after work, what a deal! After 5 p.m., the Five Fisherman Restaurant & Grill have five apps to choose from for just $5. While you’re there, grab a bottle from Garrison Brewing Company. Not a bad way to end your work day.

May 18: National Caesar Day

Head on down to one of the participating Taste members celebrating the day: 2 Doors Down Bar + Bites, 2 Doors Down Food + Wine, Little Oak Bar and Lot Six Bar & Restaurant.

May 19 to 21: Blue Nose Marathon

The annual Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon is this weekend. To avoid hitting a wall, carb-loading is a great way to keep your energy up. Have a marathon-style dining experience by walking to a few different downtown Halifax locations. Start with appetizers at Stubborn Goat Gastropub, then head over to Primal Kitchen for a protein-rich dinner. End the night with a stroll down to Morris East for dessert.
