Credit Unions of Alberta

For most Canadians, financial institutions come in two forms: a brick-and-mortar bank or the online version of the same thing. But for over 10 million Canadians (and counting), there is an alternative option – credit unions.

Here are 8 things you need to know about the Credit Unions of Alberta.

Lui-Chi’s Coffee

One of my top-five favorite TV shows is Boardwalk Empire. Boardwalk Empire tells the story of a twenties gang called the Big Seven Group and their rise to gangster fame. The Big Seven came together to bring people booze during Prohibition by smuggling barrels of Canadian Club whisky across the border. Gangsters like Al Capone, Arnold Rothstein, Nucky Johnson, Meyer Lansky and, my personal favorite, Lucky Luciano.

Why is this relevant? It’s relevant because right now in my top-five favorite Edmonton coffee shops is Lui-Chi’s. A shop that sells wood roasted, whisky barrel aged coffee (see what I did there? Luciano-Lui-Chis, whisky barrels… you get it).

By Posted on 0 No tags 0

Philly cheesesteaks are iconic, and for good reason. A well-made one can be a thing of beauty. All of the ingredients kind of… fuse together. Thinly shaved beef, glistening caramelized onions, melty gooey cheese – all loaded on a perfectly toasted roll (pause to wipe drool).

Making cheesesteaks at home doesn’t require any fancy moves, only the willingness to turn your kitchen into a South Philly hoagie shop.

Attention Slurpee Lovers! 7-Eleven Canada is inviting you to wake up on the wrong side of the bed, put your clothes on front to back and warm up with a FREE ice cold Slurpee drink.

On November 7th, the date is 11/7 (7/11 in reverse), and 7-Eleven is celebrating in backwards style by giving out free medium Slurpee drinks. The twist? You have to wear your clothing backwards.
