Like out-of-town friends, magazines pop by every so often to give you a colourful update on the latest happenings before taking up permanent residence on the shelf in the bathroom. Schedule a regular visitation with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a one-year subscription to Ottawa Magazine (a $30.51 value, including HST).
Ottawa Magazine informs its sophisticated reader base with the daily news, tastes, sights, and sounds of its city. A one-year subscription bestows on readers seven topic-based issues, including Food and Wine, which highlights products and developments from local restaurants and wineries. 101 Tastes invites readers to peruse and subsequently lick the photos of signature dishes from many of the city's fare-flinging establishments. Narrative navigators surf the City section's political banter, drifting through news from local musicians and artists and sifting through The Weekender's detailed event listings. Reason to Love Ottawa displays culture and locale pieces, and Home and Gardens and Shopping engage readers with articles born from within the topical borders of local architects and designers. The May issue's real-estate guide to up-and-coming neighbourhoods provides reconnaissance for plotting trend-setting water-balloon fights, and the annual Dining Guide adds a palate-pleasing supplement to round out the package.
Over the course of a year, Ottawa Magazine churns out five glossy issues packed with award-winning articles, hard-hitting journalism, in-depth profiles, and insider knowledge about food, shopping, and events in Canada's fourth-largest city. Reporters keep locals abreast on where to eat, who to know, and who to avoid at the grocery store in sections that explore everything from food and wine and homes and gardens to society and culture.
