  • Catch Oyster Bar / Restaurant
    At Catch & the Oyster Bar, the first floor’s casual, neighbourhood environment resounds with friendly chatter and the crackle of shells being shucked amid the oyster bar’s sandstone walls. The second floor, on the other hand, offers a more sophisticated restaurant setting, where industrial-chic elements, such as metal shelving and lofty ceilings, serve as conversation pieces as guests dive into a dinner menu of artfully assembled seafood entrees. No matter where diners prefer to sit, they can experience Catch & the Oyster Bar’s continent-spanning cuisine, including Nova Scotia lobster, dungeness crab from British Columbia, and coastal fish that arrive daily by plane or T-shirt cannon. In the kitchen, Executive Chef Kyle Groves keeps his culinary approach simple by allowing natural ingredients—such as herbs harvested on the restaurant’s rooftop garden—to speak for themselves without being muddled by too much complexity. The chef’s creations and mastery of European cooking techniques have earned the restaurant multiple awards for its seafood, and a top-five spot on Calgary's Top 10 Restaurants of 2012 in Avenue magazine.

  • Calgary Tower
    In 1988, the top of the Calgary Tower was on fire. Nobody panicked, though, and no one tried to put out the flames. If they had, and succeeded, it would have been to the disappointment of athletes and spectators the world over, because that flame burned in honour of Canada’s first Winter Olympic Games. At 191 metres above the city, the light that fire produced—flickering from a gas-fired cauldron—served to unite the city around the games, to honour the spirit of sportsmanship, and to safeguard the event from Mothra attacks. Today, visitors can see the city from just below where that torch burned. After a 63-second elevator ride to the top, guests can explore the observation deck, take a complimentary tour, and peer from high-powered binoculars at the Rocky Mountains, foothills, and prairies. Then they can step out onto the glass floor and stare down at the Olympic Plaza, the Glenbow Museum, and the bald spots on park monuments. Yet the tower’s height isn’t its only draw. From the ground up, it strives to showcase the best of the city. At the base, the visitor information centre furnishes newcomers with city guides that point to popular attractions, and at 155 metres, the elegant Sky 360 restaurant fans romantic sparks as it completes its 360-degree rotation every hour.

Back at the Edmonton location, visitors use rental snowshoes, Rocky Mountain Bicycles mountain bikes, or purchases from the shop’s stock of Segways to peruse the web of trails; alternatively, they can rent sporting equipment such as badminton sets, croquet sets, and fishing gear, accompanied by fishing licences more valid than gluing a fishing rod to your forehead. An onsite café brews pots of Intelligentsia and sates adventurers’ appetites with snacks such as acclaimed peanut-butter granola bars.

  • Screamfest
    Though they’re only performing, Screamfest’s actors embody their roles so completely that onlookers may believe the zombie apocalypse is really upon them. Chainsaw-wielding madmen, sinister clowns, and zombie witches evoke shrieks as they stalk about the grounds, growling and bellowing spine-chilling tales about what happens to people that don’t pay their taxes on time. Live performances by sword swallowers and fire-eaters dumbfound visitors, and bug-eating contests grant brave guests the chance to become participants in the fright fest.
