Sarah Wood, Winnipeg, CAN, 2 months ago

Hi there,

I am moving to Winnipeg in September for grad school and have a question about parking. So the place I am looking at (and most places I've seen) charge extra for parking. However, I just learned that some places offer an electric parking space to plug in your car in the winter. Is this that important? I'm from southern Ontario and it definitely gets pretty cold, but I've never plugged in my car before. Is it really going to get THAT cold?

Any input is appreciated! Thank you! :)

I grew up there. TRUST ME,,,Rent a place with INDOOR HEATED parking. it will be worth every dollar.

GAILICK , Kenora, CAN, 2 months ago

Yup Sarah. It is going to get THAT cold. .... but its a dry cold. ; ) Plugging your car in will be kind to your car and honestly will make the difference between whether your car will start some mornings. By the way, do you have a plug in on your car already? A garage can install one for you for a small charge if you don't have a block heater already installed.

Yes, you Must get the block heater. minus 40s are not uncommon and minus 30s are tough enough on many car batteries. the charge is much smaller than getting a good, new car battery. and having your car constantly not starting. cheers, eugene

ps go to times changed high and lonesome for great live music. volunteer at west end cultural centre for great live music and meeting other wonderful volunteers.

Hello, I am just wondering if anyone knows about any really good local bakeries which specialize in organic bread, other then Tall Grass bakery, and The Crusty Bun

Julian Screawn , Surrey, CAN, 2 months ago

If you go to eatit on wall st. or organza (confusion corner) you can find organic breads; some of them are made locally, and distributed to the above stores.

Dillon Hillier , Toronto, CAN, 2 months ago

Cant recall the name but there is an amazing bakery and coffee place I think on the corner of Westminster ave and Sherbrook st or maybe Woseley and Sherbrook.

Mel Howe , Winnipeg, CAN, about 1 month ago

Deli world, Natural Bakery, and City Bread all use local grain but not organic. You can buy them at any supermarket. Stella's on Sherbrook isn't organic and they've union busted in the past. Eat It closed but they used to carry Tallest Poppy.

I may visit the Winnipeg area on a road trip next week. I prefer to base my visits of tips and recommendations from the locals. I very much enjoy local events, art, beer, food, music, markets, etc. Also love adventure: kayaking, hiking, scenery, camping, etc.

Hey, not sure on your exact dates for being in winnipeg, but if you happen to get in over this weekend the winnipeg folk festival is a summer favorite for many winnipeggers.

As for beer: half pints is my favourite local brewery and theyve got a pretty good variety. Farmery is nice as well. You can find local beers at many bars but if you have any trouble just go to any MLCC and they can help you.

Corydon ave and the Osborne village are a nice area for a stroll in the evening with a cup of gelato and there's a good range of restaurants in that area as well. My favourite place for a quick bite is little pizza heaven because they put garlic butter on the crust.

I'm travelling right now and have been for half a year so I'm not super up to date on what art events are going on but if you just ask around when you get here you'll likely find something cool. There's lots of cool, small art galleries in the exchange district (where portage ave meets main st) There's also a few farmers markets around on weekends but it might be best to ask about those once youve arrived as well.
