I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I must admit, when Hopyard first opened in the former Lot 30 on Kent Street in Charlottetown I wondered how it was going to survive. Charlottetown is fairly saturated with restaurants to begin with. I had my doubts that its focus on craft beer and plates under $10 would cover the overhead costs in a large space downtown, even if it was full most nights. And

The case for beer

A new Buzz column focuses on the suds

The Brew
by Bryan Carver

Though we are just a few months into 2018, it is quickly shaping up to be a banner year for brewers and the people who enjoy their beer here on PEI.

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Few storefronts in Charlottetown have seen as many incarnations as 177 Great George Street (formerly 77 University Avenue). 

Some remember it best as an Indian buffet called Royal Tandoor or a Chinese place called Silver Streams. Others may have rocked out for a night at the Alibi Lounge. Others still may have

Adventures along the New Year’s Levee trail

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Levee Day 2018 was supposed to be a less boisterous affair. It happened on a Monday, after all. Surely some people would stay home for fear of the cold and a long Tuesday at work. But not only were this year’s levees well attended, the crowd is changing, and a new guard is forming that will help ensure one of
