365 Things to do in Kitchener Waterloo update – Santa Claus is coming to town
I love this time of year when things break their regular routine, when there are trolly rides through the park and the skating rinks are getting set up, when the radio plays christmas music and when the workload is slowing down. I love shopping and bumping into people I know, the first snowfall, the christmas lights in residential neighbourhoods and up and down King Street in Kitchener and Waterloo. It the most wonderful time of the year, for sure.
We’ve all been busy of course getting ready for the holidays. Besides that, I’ve been using my time working on the book – 365 Rules about Real Estate, and now that I’ve complete the first draft, I had no idea there could be so many rules. Please email me if you want a free copy. It’s publishing in February.
Last week on 365 Things to do in Kitchener Waterloo we posted Christmas ideas from our local retailers. There are some great local stores – shop local. It’s good for the economy and its good for our community. Speaking of which, check out this special offer from THEMUSUEM, they’re all about Christmas over there.
A highlight from last week was Electric Thursdays at Centre in the Square. Amanda took in the Jeans and Classics show of the Beatle’s Rubber Soul and Revolver. We will have a few more of these show coming up over the winter. They’re really great.
Last weeks date night was dinner and a concert, dinner at Three Kretans followed by a Christmas concert at the Registry Theatre. This week we’ll be doing some cooking ourselves and then getting some winter exercise for date night, which will actually be in the afternoon, But “Date Afternoon” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Upcoming is also Strummerfest. There will be 27 bands playing in eight venues in the downtown core. This will be a “pay what you can” event.
Upcoming is also a chance to skate with Santa, and a Christmas concert with the Barenaked Ladies.
There was some sad news last week. Jazz legend Dave Brubeck died. He was 91. Let’s take five to remember this great jazz icon.
