Profile: Glen Strickey

by Jane Ledwell

Little did Glen Strickey know as an eager-beaver twelve-year-old that some of his uncle’s Sunday afternoon jam-session guests, who welcomed him to play saxophone with them, were world-famous musicians like Oscar Peterson or Oliver Jones.

It may be Saturday nights in Charlottetown, rather than Sundays in Cape Breton, but Glen still plays his saxophone with

Holidays at the Market

Holidays at the Market
The New Creative

by Cassandra Bernard

The Christmas season is a busy time of the year, and the owners of Kent Street Market in Downtown Charlottetown want to take away some of the pressures of holiday cooking and hosting.

Having opened less than five months ago, Mila MacLean Homburg and Phil Homburg are noticing more and more customers in the store and leaving happy with gourmet and

Hello winter

Hello winter

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Well, hello winter! One day we were blithely raking leaves in t-shirts and shorts, and the next day we were bundling up against a fierce north wind and brushing snow from our doorsteps. It would be nice to blame Daylight Savings Time for all this, but of course that can’t be true. Fortunately our stunningly beautiful fall weather gave everyone, from farmers and

Plaintiff

Plaintiff
Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

Aged 17- to 21-years-old, the boys in Plaintiff might be young, but it’s easy to imagine them growing into a force to be reckoned with, particularly among Charlottetown’s metal scene.

Plaintiff is Tanner Peardon (drums), Tyler Turner (bass), Liam Farrell (guitar), and Chris Gallant (vocals).

The four-member post-metal group is still young, only having gotten

New perspective

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

The Canada 150 performance had me seeing the PEI Symphony Orchestra from a whole new perspective—from behind, to be specific. In the second concert of the PEISO’s fiftieth season, the orchestra collaborated with many diverse elements. One was the Confederation Singers, of which I am a member.

Soooo…the choir has been working hard and I promised this

Find of the month: Poutine at Papa Joe’s

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

For my money, good old reliable Papa Joe’s has one of the most interesting menus in town. Sure, you can get something expected and comforting. But you can also be surprised and delighted by my new favourite thing: bar clams and chips.

This is PEI’s answer to poutine. Do not mistake this for fried clams; it’s entirely different. The clams are like they would be for chowder

Route 145 Bar and Grill in Bloomfield

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

Recognizing a need in West Prince for a bar, family restaurant and some “hanging out” space, Dwayne and Crystal Costain took over an existing bar and have put their own distinct stamp on it. Route 145 Bar and Grill opened March 3, 2016. The determined couple knew folks needed a spot to sit down, have a good meal, have a drink, watch some

The East Enders
Restaurants push the evolution of a neighbourhood 

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

Something seems to be percolating in the east end of downtown Charlottetown. Formerly seen as a mecca for cruise shippers and other tourists, the place is starting to become an interesting place for residents as well.

To wit: the venerable Water Prince Corner Shop is staying open until December 15 this year—the theory
