Fear not, Winnipeg thirty-somethings: the world famous Palomino Club will soon be returning, at a former downtown banking hall near you.

A Few From Portage Avenue

pianoscanadian-super-shopkings-theatrekings-theatre-2

A few from Portage Avenue, including the iconic Pianos signage, Canadian Super Shop, and The old Kings Theatre which, incidentally, was one of my go-to movie theatres as a kid. Among many others, I saw E.T. and Empire Strikes Back there.

Wednesday Grab Bag

body-shadesp-and-psupersudzers

A bit of a grab bag today, as I try to get somewhat caught up on my postings. From the top: Body Shades on Portage Avenue (it’s worth noting that the blue and white building to the left is now a restaurant, after being occupied for several years as some mysterious private social club); P&P Food Market on McGreggor; and Super Sudzer’s on Main Street.

Alt Hotel Mural

mural1mural2mural3mural4mural5

Here are some shots of the the new Altexpo mural in the lobby of the brand new Alt Hotel on Portage Avenue. Consisting of over 2600 of my Winnipeg and Manitoba photos, the 2-sided floor-to-ceiling mural is a collaboration with the Sextans design studio in Montreal (I provided the photos and they did the design work). I think it came out great! Stop in and check it out when the hotel opens.

Portage Avenue/West End

foodfareportage-youngcash-moneyeben-conveniencegood-will

Some Portage Avenue photos, ranging from Young Street to Burnell Street. From the top: Foodfare (expect the best); the corner of Portage and Young, where the Sound Exchange somehow survives; the Cash Money/Russian Deli, beside the now sign-less National Typewriter Building; Eben Convenience; and finally, the relatively new coffee house/pub/music venue, The Good Will—a fantastic addition to this stretch of Portage Avenue, despite its confusing name and near-invisible signage.

Portage Avenue. I’m glad to see that this has turned into a pretty interesting little strip; I don’t recall there being anything of interest in it when I lived nearby around five years ago. Now, between Jonnies and Cafe Ce Soir, it’s got at least two legitimate go-to spots.

Portage Avenue. When I lived in Wolseley (from around 2002-2010), this was my go-to Italian restaurant. Decent food, decent prices. I miss it. That’s 807 Portage Avenue beside it, with the sunlight dancing off the corner of the building.
