Yes, hello! Charmed, I'm sure.
The Noteworthy is a place for me to document the people I find interesting. Through friends, colleagues and my writing for City and Dale, I've made new friends and meaningful connections with business owners, makers, event organizers and all kinds of people. The Noteworthy is an outlet for me to introduce all these people to you, and gives me a legitimate excuse to get to know even more of them.
I'm often asked for cool places to eat, shop and socialize in Edmonton, so I'll occasionally be sharing my favourite places and things here too. Everyone I meet with will be sharing their recommendations as well, so come back often for an ever-growing collection of interesting people, places and things.
Here's an introduction to the format for new readers!
What makes them interesting?
Here's where I'll explain what captured my attention about them. The usual reasons:
- Being involved in projects that elevate Edmonton or their community.
- Finding an unusual path to success.
- Having a dream and doing whatever it takes to make it a reality.
- They're super passionate about whatever it is they're doing and want to share this excitement with everyone around them.
- They have an interesting story to tell.
Their Favourite Places
Recommendations from the tastemakers themselves - whatever food or drink they find themselves craving and the places they choose to spend their time and money.
One of my favourites: Credo - 10134-104 Street
To say I'm hooked on their London Fogs would be an understatement.
Their Favourite Things
What items do they covet most? What can't they live without? For some, it might be a family heirloom. To others, it could be a household item they use all the time. It's interesting to me to see what people hold near and dear to their heart (and why).
Their Recommended Reads
To be honest, I'm not much of a reader myself. I'm curious to learn which books influence or entertain these interesting people in the hopes of picking up a few of these titles myself.
A Note From Them
The last part of my meet and greet with them will be handing over a blank postcard and a sharpie. It's up to them to fill the page with whatever they'd like: a quote, words of wisdom, a drawing, their shopping list, a secret treasure map, a mad scientist's formula, anything! I hope you find the results as interesting as I do.
