If you want to take me back to being in my early 20s, play a little Hayden for me. I’ll be transported to “the good old days”. A time when I’d spontaneously drive with a friend up to North Bay where my brother lived and went to school. A time when laying on the ground on our backs listening to music was all we needed and wanted to do. A time when little things mattered – a touch on the shoulder, eye contact from a stranger, dancing alone in an empty bar with your eyes closed.
I love a good old photo of Fernie!
Smokehouse just opened June 1st and it will continue to do so 5pm to 10pm daily. Check out their website for their menu and here’s a little bit about them from their website:
“Established local chefs Keith Ilavsky and James McDonald are launching Fernie’s latest restaurant and a menu of mouth-watering new dishes. Located at the Red Tree Lodge, just off the highway, Smokehouse specialises in Cajun-inspired slow-cooked smoked dishes, there are options for carnivores and vegetarians alike.”
Tomorrow’s the big day! It’s finally arrived…and I won’t even be here to enjoy it.
The details are online and it sounds like there’s a lot to see and do. Here’s the map but I would check out the Yard Sale Event Page for last minute additional addresses.
Fernie Child Care Society and Wildsight Elk Valley have teamed up to have a TOY garage sale at Max Turyk School from 8-12.
Fernie Hospice Bake Sale at 891 2nd Avenue
The Arts Station will be participating in this year’s Community Yard Sale. We will be selling old canvases, costumes, fabrics and whatever else we find in our basement! If you have any creative projects coming up, this could be your chance to pick up what you need to get the ball rolling. All proceeds to the Arts Station.
Wildsight Elk Valley will also host a “White Elephant” yard sale at their office at 891 Second Avenue in Fernie, where citizens who are inspired to declutter but don’t have the time to sell their goods can donate them to the Wildsight Elk Valley branch Yard Sale.
