Pizza Party at Urbano Pizza Co.

Remember when you were a kid and the best birthday parties you were invited to involved pizza and pop? Those were my favorite kind of parties and this past week my Gastropost Edmonton friend Brittney invited me and a bunch of pizza loving bloggers out to Urbano Pizza Co. for a pizza and pop party!

Urbano Pizza

Urbano Pizza Co. is the newest restaurant from the owners of Sabor Restaurant and Bodega Tapas and Wine Bar and it’s a place where you can either build your own pizza or try one of their signature pies. The pizzas are cooked super quickly (90-120 seconds) and you could theoretically be in and out with your pizza in 5 minutes! The pizzas are cooked in these very cute and colourful personal ovens – I do believe I even heard that one of them only does gluten-free pizzas, so that’s really great for people with gluten allergies!

All You Can (M)eat at Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse

Oh the trials of being a food enthusiast (and occasional blogger)… some weeks I pack my schedule with so much eating that food eventually becomes public enemy number 1 (cues up a very tiny violin). The last few weeks have definitely been food heavy as I rarely had dinner at home – of course that means a much healthier eating plan for the next few days. While I eat my fruit and salads, I want to recap a fantastic meal I went to at Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse. June is Pork Month and as we have it, BaconFest YEG is back for a second round on June 30. Pampa is participating in BaconFest YEG and as part of that, they are offering a special BaconFest menu for the month of June. My awesome friend Brittney of Gastropost Edmonton fame invited me + a date (my sister Bel) and a few others (like Linda – who is also giving away tickets to BaconFest Yeg!) to head out to Pampa to try the Pampa BaconFest menu.

Oh Honey… It’s Getting Hot in Here: Honey & Hot Sauce Pop-Up at The Common

It’s been awhile since The Common has hosted a pop-up dinner… I think the last one was way back in 2013, so I was pretty excited to see a tweet a few weeks ago saying a pop-up dinner was going down on May 26. Of course as soon as I saw the date, I cringed because it’s the end of the month and I am over my monthly budget. I was going to have to pass on the pop-up but I got really lucky because Andrea had a contest giving away tickets to the event… I didn’t win at first but the original winner wasn’t able to make it to the event so I was able to get myself a spot at her table! The theme of this pop-up with “Honey and Hot Sauce”, which I thought was great – there is nothing like a good sweet and spicy pairing, although hopefully not too spicy since I am a wimp when it comes to spicy things.
