Jag show fills Windsor, The Ave offers big sales

Sidewalk superintendent: McKerrell's tidbits include car show, market and a one-year celebration

This Saturday morning found me at De’lish on St. Patrick’s, for coffee and breakfast with my family.

Growing up in Oak Bay, it is always nice on a Saturday morning to sit sipping a coffee and chatting with friends that you happen upon. As I drove home past Windsor Park I was thrilled to see such a wonderful turnout, and great weather to match for the Jaguar On the Island car show.  …

As the restoration of the iconic Oak Bay theatre continues businesses with store fronts affected all remain open including Starbucks, Avenue Gallery, Ivy’s Bookshop, and Scotia Bank. …

After years on Oak Bay Ave Country Life Clothing is closing, the retirement sale continues. The Avenue is full of sales right now, making the adventure of shopping here even better. …

My exciting product find for the week comes from Oak Bay Avenue Pharmasave. It is a newer brand at Pharmasave, and is particularly good for households with small children or pets. It is called Better Life, and I was amazing at how effective the simple product worked. …

Looking for a good way to celebrate the long weekend? Head over to the Penny Farthing where they now have Pursecco on tap. You can enjoy a refreshing glass on either the front Vis-à-vis patio or the back Penny patio – kids are welcome, but only if accompanied by an adult. …

Heading off the Ave. and welcoming the newest restaurant Machi Sushi, located in Willows Centre, next to VQA Wine Store and Slaters First Class Meats, across from Pure Vanilla Bakery.
