Home is where the heart is, unless that home is filled with adept man-eaters. Refinish your cardiac cavity with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get two tickets to the Calgary Home + Garden Show (up to a $28 value) at the BMO Centre & Corral, located at Stampede Park. Children younger than 13 years old get in free.
With more than 650 exhibitors, celebrity guests, and two stages of events and attractions, the Calgary Home + Garden Show quells decoration disquietude and home-repair rancour. The show, like the sole human at a stuffed-animal tea party, dutifully plays host to the latest product lines and features displays on interior design, renovation, and home entertainment. Bryan Baeumler, host of HGTV’s Disaster DIY, and a gaggle of other celebrity guests and local experts answer questions and lead seminars on the dos and don’ts of home renovation, design trends for 2011, and training homes to narrate apocalyptic sci-fi tales.
After cutting a swath through the dense forest of gardening implements and vintage lamps, grant foraging feet a rest at the reader’s lounge. Parched gardeners can test their new watering cans at the beer garden, and appreciators of the fine art of crafting fine art can peruse the M(art)ket, an art gallery and shop displaying the work of local artists. This Groupon is good for entry on Thursday, February 24 and Friday, February 25 only.
