Wineries on Vancouver Island?

Friday, July 19th, 2013

When we talk about “experiencing local”  we want to take you beyond the usual, the expected and the traditional. When visiting Victoria B.C. we highly recommend taking in some of the more well-known attractions or activities such as visiting the Butchart Gardens, have an exhilarating ride with Eagle Wing whale watching tours or perhaps a wonderful kayak day tour with Ocean River Sports.  But then there’s the not so well known… Victoria and Vancouver Island have some award winning, scenic and downright tasty wineries.

In Love With Tony Bennett

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

music notes

 

A long time ago I must confess, I was a little bit in love with Tony Bennett and although he is older now, I must also confess that I may still be!

I’ve never been to a concert where the performer received a standing ovation before they actually performed but that’s what happened a few nights ago when Tony Bennett took the stage at the Royal Theatre in Victoria B.C. after a 20 minute performance by his daughter Antonia Bennett.

 

Many in the audience had grown up with his music and there was no denying the love as Tony reminisced about the early days of his career, telling everybody that he and Rosemary Clooney were the original “American Idols”. He also shared how Bob Hope had given him his stage name – a shortened version of his birth name Anthony Dominick Benedetto. (more…)
