My fiance and I were considering spending the long weekend in Lake Louise or Banff but by the time we got around to booking hotels, everything was full or ridiculously expensive. So I've proposed a weekend of day-trip eating.
This means going to hidden gems (ie, small independent places with amazing food) within a 60-km drive of downtown Calgary.
I've thrown Turner Valley's Route 40 Soup Company on the list already.
I was pondering Crazyweed in Canmore until my girlfriend had a horrendous experience there with service last weekend (ignored their reservation, gave them a table near bathroom, did not offer to take their coats - from a pregnant lady no less, no service for 25 minutes, server poured wine in her water glass, then brought new glass without replacing spent wine etc.)
Anyway, didn't mean to turn this into a Crazyweed thread.
So... I'm looking to all of you for other suggestions for our little long weekend activity. Thanks!
