For those of us who live and work in the downtown core, sometimes food selection can become a bit of a daunting task.  In a city rich with options, it is never a question of where you want to go but more about what will give you the best experience, who will provide you with a unique experience and what selection will go beyond food for that one hour you can escape your desk (if you can escape your desk) and your just…

11 Nov, 2015  |  by Ama Scriver

It was just in March of 2015 that we were invited to The One Eighty to check out the brand new relaunch that happened from itself former self, the Panorama Lounge. While the view from the 51st floor was still the same: breathtaking and an obvious draw – it was the food and cocktails that really had us talking.

I’m not going to lie, I don’t remember how exactly I stumbled across Frances Cannon’s Instagram page but one night when I was doing my usual thing of endlessly scrolling through image after image of photos, I came across it.

Lookin’ Good Girl: Cawfee Talk with the Ottawa Squad

10 Oct, 2013  |  by Yuli Scheidt

Here it is! Late due to technical difficulties here at FGFS HQ (what is a blogger without Internet?) but all the same fantastic. The Ottawa Squad was in town for our launch party just the other week so we had them in to the studio the day after (no hang overs, but we still drank lots of cawfee). We talked with the girls about how they came to be the first Squad outside of Toronto, what the food is like…

The first in the Cawfee Talk series are part of our on-going work…
