2016 Festival of Trees at the Western Development Museum

On Saturday I took Mark and Oliver to the Western Development Museum where we not only checked out the Eaton’s Once Upon a Christmas exhibit but we took in the 2016 Festival of Trees.  We did not stay for the Minions Dance Party.  Oliver wouldn’t be caught dead at something that childish.  Despite being there a few hours before the dance party, some parents and kids were already sitting down waiting for it.  Keeping a toddler entertained that long?  Good luck.

Restaurant Review: Smoke’s Poutinerie

Before it closed, I discovered and reviewed the Smoke’s Poutinerie in Moose Jaw.  I was excited to hear that one was coming to Saskatoon and I checked it out shortly after it opened.

Smoke's Poutinerie in Saskatoon

Smoke’s Poutinerie is a Montreal based chain that is slowly taking over Canada and North America.  If you have never tried it, it offers unique combinations to go along with the poutine that keep bringing people back.  That and the portion sizes are huge.  No matter how hungry we are, I don’t think we have ever finished a bowl of it.  There is an even larger version called the WOW size.  I can’t even imagine eating that much poutine.

We’ve tried the Philly Cheesesteak Poutine, the Pulled Pork Poutine, Perogy Poutine, Rainbow Poutine, & the Chicken Fajita Poutine and have been impressed everytime.  Sadly the BBQ Mac & Cheese Poutine was a limited time only offer but I hope they bring it back.

The poutine is always delivered quickly and hot.  The servers are pleasant and whether you are grabbing takeout or dining in, the experience is a good one.  If you are looking for a fun and unique take on fries, check it out.
