If you're looking for something to do in this dreaded winter cold, I got you. While Ottawa has so many amazing things to do, we're kind of lacking on cool and original bars. We have a super cool consignment bar and a bar that will make you feel super boujee, but other than that, they're all pretty much the same.
While Ottawa is growing as a city, it seems like we're missing super original things to do on the nights we actually have free. Do we want to stay inside and watch Netflix all night or do we want to go out and explore the city? If you're sort of in between, why not go to a new arcade bar that will make all of your childhood dreams come true?!
Room 104 just opened up in Ottawa, and it's already a huge hit. From arcade games to '90s pictures splattered all over the walls, you'll be in heaven. Even better? They have 100+ options of unreal shots. Open 7 nights a week with NO cover, yes, no cover, if you're looking to have fun in a different way, Room 104 is the best possible place you can go for that.
Maybe you're stumped on where to spend your birthday, where to have a night out with your BFFs or if you're just sick of all the same bars in the ByWard Market. Well, arcade games + sick music + shots = always a fun night.
No matter what your preference is for alcohol, they have it in shot and drink form. So next time you can't choose where you want to go out because you'd rather stay home, remember that you can have way more fun playing arcade games and drinking at the same time.
Room 104 is located at 104 Clarence St and it's open from 8 pm to late. All of their shots are $4 each and so worth it. If all the bars in Ottawa are gonna be this original from now on, I think most of us will stay here. For more information, check out their Instagram page here.
Trudeau is clapping back against Doug Ford's targeted ads about tightening border restrictions to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
In a press conference on Friday, the prime minister stated that these "personal attacks" are not what Ontarians need right now. Instead, Trudeau states he will continue to work with Ford to come to a conclusion about border restrictions if Ford will get back to him.
"If the Ontario government wants to do more to restrict the volume of people coming into Ontario, we are more than happy to work with them on it," Trudeau stated.
"But it's been a week since we've received that request directly from the premier that they haven't followed up on except with personal attacks, which doesn't make sense and quite frankly won't help Ontarians."
Earlier this week, the Ontario PC Party released an ad campaign, which claimed that Trudeau's lack of border control could lead to the fourth wave of COVID-19.
Ford keeps reaching out to Trudeau
While Trudeau claims he has yet to hear back personally from Ford, the targeted ad does follow multiple letters and comments from the premier.
Back in April, both Ford and Quebec's premier François Legault sent a joint letter to Trudeau, stating that the number of international flights landing in Canada should be reduced.
After this, Ford released his own statement on May 4 asking to ban all non-essential travel and close the "quarantine loophole at land border crossings."
Ford has also used his Twitter account in an attempt to get the prime minister's attention. "In the last two weeks, we have sent the federal government 3 urgent letters requesting immediate action on the borders," he claims.
According to the province, newly eligible groups include First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals; anyone 50 and over; people with high-risk health conditions and a number of people who aren't able to work from home.
