Big Day Downtown: Choose Your Own Adventure

Big Day Downtown logoSo it is that time of year again. NO not back to school. It’s time for the Big Day Downtown.

I’ve been selected once again to highlight some of the great things that can be done in downtown Halifax. Every year there’s a twist, and this year is no different. Instead of allowing me to spend $150 however I want (read place $150 on red at Casino Nova Scotia roulette), the Halifax Downtown Business Commission wants to know what you think I should do with the money.

So, whatcha got?

But here’s a little info that I hope will frame you thinking. First something practical; I need a haircut. Badly. the flow is shifting to a flon’t. I am not someone that can get grow my hair out and it look alright. It just swirls around and upward like the topping of a hairy cupcake. Yeah! Sorry for the mental image. I suppose you could help me choose where, but I have been wanting to check out Sailor Bup’s Barbershop.

Really beyond that I am open to suggestions. I have a wife and two small kids, so ways to include them are welcome. My wife has a birthday coming up shortly and our anniversary in right around the corner. Now both those events take place after the September 12th deadline for the Big Day Downtown campaign. But if there are some creative ideas in that direction, I suppose gift cards could be purchased… loophole

My kids are two years old and five months. The older guy loves truck and climbing on things and the younger guy likes to put things in his mouth. The latter could be particularly unpalatable for suggestions downtown. Frankly these guys love most things we take them to, as long as we get outside.

Or of course you could choose that I could selfish. Since I am mainly into sports, checking out the new HFX Sports Bar could be pretty cool.

So I am all ears. I will take your ideas into consideration when planning my #BIGDAYDOWNTOWN.

As for the blog, it has been too long since I’ve been active here. That is going to change. I have a great post I have worked on for a while. It has just been the thing called life (see two small children above) and an actual day job.

Stay Tuned!
