Davin Robertson is writing about himself in the third person and describing himself as a writer, editor and terrible cartoonist. When he’s not (literally) running around the city, he’s (figuratively) attempting to read every comic ever written. It’s easy to find him at concerts as he’s literally head and shoulders above everyone else. If you’re lucky, he won’t talk about himself in the third person.
Dads are a tricky bunch to thank. What do you get them? A card? Socks? A firm handshake? While those are good options, how about you treat him to a darn good steak instead? [Image credit: iStock.com/Lisovskaya]
Getting gifts for guys is a gargantuan task - we’re not always upfront about what we want and often happy with pretty well anything. A blank slate can be intimidating. Good thing Edmonton has plenty of places to find perfect presents for dudes.
If you need the perfect picture of joy, look no further than a dog in a park on a beautiful day – eyes lit up, tongue hanging out, tail keeping inconsistent time. Fortunately for your pup, Edmonton has acres of awesome park spaces.
Nobody finds clothes easily, but it’s a wild journey for those of above average height, especially if you’re a lady. Lucky for the long-legged lasses around Edmonton, there are a few great options.
Weddings - okay, wedding receptions - are fun, but not nearly as much fun as the bachelor parties. Stags are often hazy but always memorable, especially as the daylight wanes. But what about the day, when you need something fun to do for a gang of rowdy dudes looking to send their buddy off to a life of domesticity? Edmonton and area has you covered.
If you’re over six feet tall, chances are you have a few go-to replies in your back pocket, like your exact height and whether you play basketball. But, do you have a good place to grab clothes? There’s a few places in Edmonton that can help.
Post-workout meals need two things: Carbs and protein. While that may seem a bit limiting at first glance, Edmonton has several awesome, healthy options for when you’re still wiping sweat away.
If your weekend usually means more texts from your friends asking at which bar you’re planning on sitting around and drinking, maybe it’s time to switch it up. There are plenty of places around town to bond with your buds while keeping your heart rate up.
Not only is our city packed with talented musicians, there are also several joints to catch them putting on a show. These are Edmonton’s most reliable places you can just walk right into any night of the week and likely find good live music.
Comics are a source of wonder, amazement and great storytelling (just ask Hollywood). But, like any good addiction, you need a good supplier. Good thing the Edmonton area has more great comic shops than Deadpool has chimichangas. [Image credit: iStock.com/Cristie Guevara]
Not every Dad is Ron Swanson; some don’t do the meat thing, and that’s awesome. Whatever his reason – maybe he’s a huge fan of George Stroumboulopoulos and follows anything he does – thank him for being your dad by taking him out for an awesome meal. [Image credit: iStock.com/Lauri Patterson]
Father’s Day gifts are the toughest ones to find, and dad himself is usually no help, since he already has everything. Good thing there are still some shops around the city happy to help out.
