Brave New World

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

For a good part of this summer you couldn’t get anything but Gahan House draught beer on Victoria Row. And, for the better part of the last decade, you really couldn’t find a dedicated dance club in downtown Charlottetown.

Chefs Back Home

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Prince Edward Island is the best place in the world to come home to, and thousands do it every summer.

For two Island chefs, this summer marks a return to the flavours upon which they honed their craft. For one, the Island will provide a place to raise a family, and to re-explore the flavours he’s raved about for the last decade in other places. For the other
