In the same manner that the Canadian Museum for Human Rights elevates our city to a national (even international) tourism level, Era Bistro elevates the museum to even higher heights. I have had the pleasure of noshing at the at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Musee D’Orsay in Paris, The Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem and more recently the Ufizzi Gallery in Florence. All were tasty enough but none had the integrity of local produce and regional menu as Era does.
I have met both the director of food and beverage and the executive chef at Era Bistro. The former, named Toni, is gluten intolerant and strives to give persons with this, vegan and vegetarian preferences plenty of menu choices. On the lunch menu alone there were nine delicious options. I enjoyed the gluten free Quinoa Salad on my visit.
WINNIPEG – Manitoba’s public-sector unions lost a bid Friday for a temporary court injunction against a provincial government bill that would freeze wages for 110,000 workers.
Court of Queen’s Bench Justice James Edmond rejected a request from more than a dozen unions —representing teachers, nurses, civil servants and others — to delay the wage freeze until a full court hearing on its constitutional validity can be held.
There’s no question about it — the heartbeat of Winnipeg has been thumping loud and clear and full of pride. While the nation watched, tens of thousands of citizens flocked to fill downtown streets to cheer on our own Winnipeg Jets in their hopeful pursuit of the coveted Stanley Cup. Window after window was covered with “Go Jets Go!” made from ‘borrowed’ office paper. Social media exploded with “We are Winnipeg” and Bhangra-dancing Winnipeg Jets fans. What’s undeniably clear: Winnipeg is at its best right now and only getting better. It’s gritty. It’s authentic. It has soul. This prairie soul will be on full display at the upcoming Canadian Institute of Planners conference from July 19-22 as hundreds of planners, engineers, architects, elected officials, and designers from across the country arrive in Winnipeg to tell stories, share ideas and contemplate their respective roles in the field of city-building.
