Netflix and KILL

If you are looking to celebrate Halloween (like an adult) then know Xchange is throwing a Netflix and Kill party. Get it Netflix and Chill.

There will be a live band, group costume contests, loads of decorations and lots of fun. There is $800 in prizes being given away so get your tickets quickly.

The cost is $30 per person which also includes passed canapés and happy hour drinks all night long. 

Remember a couple weeks ago when I said the new owner was going to be doing some real cool things. Go check it out.

Get ’em while they’re hot and ready.

Jana Wendland and Angelika Schack have gone national with their energy bombs. You can order them online and ship anywhere across Canada as of last week.

EnergyBombs.com is a local family owned and operated company that uses only all natural, fine ingredients and traditional methods to produce exceptional all natural, gluten free, no added sugar granola snacks

These energy bombs can found in a few grocery stores like Nature's Fare or Urban Fare and so many coffee shops around Kelowna.

If you haven’t tried them then get ordering. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

Have you heard of Doc Walks? Me neither, but listen to how cool this is.

You can join Dr. Krista Hennigar, Dr. David Hatton and Helix Integrative Health for a Doc Walk. This is an opportunity to hang out and ask the doctors questions while enjoying an Okanagan hike. Everyone is welcome.

Check out their event page for all the info. 

Rob and Karen Horner of Treehouse Interiors deserve a huge congratulations because they have been carefully selecting distinctive, high quality and unique items for Kelowna for over 25 years.  

Their store is known for the items unlike any other that speaks to quality, suburb taste and individuality that can be found around every corner.

Rob and Karen are currently holding a 25th anniversary sale, so if you like city and country, fresh and funky, classic and contemporary, you need to go and see their showroom near Spall and the highway. 

Another big congratulations needs to go out to Total E’Clips because they hosted their 20th anniversary party yesterday at their location on Lakeshore Road. 

Linda and her daughter, Kathie, opened the store together in 1993. They have won local awards and multiple style competitions including international up-do, ladies cut and ladies style competitions.

The biggest congratulations this week has to go to the Pearson Family because they have been operating Shady Rest Fish and Chips since 1967. That’s 70 years in Kelowna and they bought it from another who had been running it for who knows how long.

This is old time fish and chips. You know the one that comes wrapped in news paper and is served with homemade fries. 

If their place isn’t a landmark in Kelowna yet it should be. Go and check it out. It’s Friday after all.  

So you think you can make the best apple pie?

Well, head over to Kelowna’s Farmers and Crafters Market this Saturday because they are hosting their first Apple Daze Apple Pie Contest. Perfect idea for the Okanagan, isn’t it!

Pies are being judged by a celebrity panel as well as Farmer Bob. Visit their Facebook page to see what the winners will win.  

Make it a great week!
