Christmas Shopping (again).

Posted by Dirck on 3 December, 2010

My Friday squib is another encouragement to shop locally this season, because the interesting non-chain shops have nothing but the local market to support them and you city withers without that kind of place.  In the case of my own city, a specific plug for the GS European Deli and Russian Cafe at 1640 Albert Street.  It’s delicious, quintessentially mom’n’pop, and will feed you vast amounts of non-threatening food for tiny sums of money.  With the Vintage Tea Room, Afghan Cuisine, MichiSmokin’ Okies, and the Mercury Cafe on hand, the people of Regina need never face a McBurger while shopping about.

For completeness of plugging– there’s Paper Umbrella, Dessart, and Zippity Zoom Toys as my favourites for gift buying.

Today’s predicted pen: Parker “51″
Today’s (ditto) ink:  Noodler’s La Couleur Royale
