YYC Hot Chocolate Fest runs throughout the entire month of February and there are nearly 100 creative hot chocolate creations to choose from. One drink that caught our eye is the Tres Leches Hot Chocolate from Good Trade Coffee Co., which uses three milks in its white hot chocolate and tops it all off with a piece of vanilla sponge cake and some whipped cream. With every purchase, $1 goes towards Calgary Meals on Wheels.

Calgarians are flocking to this new brunch spot and it’s not hard to see why. Dishes like the Lanzhao braised beef cheeks are earning rave reviews, with braised beef cheeks, mustard spaetzle and arugula topped with cilantro, chili and a crispy fried egg. Be sure to check out the Plant it Modern plant shop in the back of the space before you leave.

Pretzels, Pizza Pops and Beer from Mixtape and Eighty-Eight Brewing Company

With the 2022 Winter Olympic Games starting this month, it just makes sense to spend some time at Eighty-Eight Brewing Company, which is inspired by Calgary’s 1988 winter Olympics and will be holding watch parties, showcasing memorabilia and more. Stop by during the new happy hour running Tuesdays to Fridays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. to get deals when you pair a pint with a pizza pop or pretzel from Mixtape, the in-house eatery at the brewery.

Eighty-Eight Brewing Company, 1070, 2600 Portland St. S.E., eightyeightbrewing.ca; mixtapeyyc.ca
