The cafe in the Glebe where I have been buying Francesco's espresso beans for years burned down last night, and I only have a one week supply left. This is not good. Does anyone know another location that carries their beans? I can't get them from Francesco's retail location as they are only open weekdays until 5 pm. Any other recommendations for good beans in the Glebe/Old Ottawa South area?

For a Texas boy, I got pretty good at dressing for the weather in London and Seattle. But now I've moved to Toronto, where I've found my clothes inadequate for the cold of the previous couple of weeks. I was also possessed to plan on a visit to Ottawa's Winterlude in a few weeks where I have been warned I might just freeze to death. What new clothes do I need and where do I get them? [more inside]

There is currently a bylaw in Ottawa that prevents street performers from amplifying their voices. A street performer has taken the city to a human rights tribunal, claiming that as women find it harder to project their voices than men, this bylaw is unfairly discriminating against female street performers. I run an advocacy group for buskers, and am very keen to see her claim upheld. So, I'm looking for studies or previous cases that may lend support for her argument. And any advice on where I might look for more.
My situation. About 2/3 months ago I happily said goodbye to a massive tumor I had apparently been gestating in my intestine. I am receiving FOLFOX chemotherapy. The primary thing that is keeping me functioning, working and being a parent is marijuana. Which I have to buy on the street to the tune of about 800 bucks a month. I have spoken to my oncologist. I have spoken to my pain management team. No one will help me get what I need: a prescription/license for pot and sufficient financial help or program to be able to afford it. Where in Ottawa can I be connected to a network or physician who can help me? And I mean now. I need someone to carry the water for me because I am somewhat shattered. [more inside]

Anyone had any issues living in the US but flying internationally out of Canada? We (English green-card holder me + US citizen wife) live in far upstate NY and it seems that flying to London and back out of Ottawa using Air Transat is the cheapest and quickest way. Are there any pitfalls I'm unaware of? Any craziness with border control between the US and Canada if you tell the that's what you're doing? Thanks.

Hey all, I'm looking for a fancy, expensive, special occasion type restaurant in Ottawa that has more than one Vegetarian entree on the menu. I'm taking my vegetarian girlfriend out for our anniversary and am having trouble finding any "fine dining" type places that have some veggie items on the menu. She is strict vegetarian so fish is out. Italian is always an option but I was hoping the hive mind could come up with some other ideas.
