Well: Just read Winnipeg vet Philipp Schott’s new mystery six ostricheswhich it launches Wednesday, May 31 at the Grant Park location of McNally Robinson Booksellers.

Published by ECW Press, this is his second book to feature rural Manitoba veterinarian Dr. Peter Bannerman, who this time tries to help solve the mystery of a northern trinket found on the grounds of an ostrich farm. , and creatures (and people) being brutally attacked in the area.

Oh, and we took my mom to Black-smith for Mother’s Day dinner, and I was reminded how good their buttermilk mashed cheese fried chicken is.

Eva: My first terrace experience of the season led me to Barn Hammer Brewing Last weekend. The Wall Street Brewery has a relatively quaint patio and some fun seasonal offerings right now.

I enjoyed the Still Life, a peach lager, and took home a few cans of their new Michelada, a rice lager with Clamato juice. I also tried The Wurst, a weird sauerkraut and mustard lager that surprisingly wasn’t as offensive as it looked. If you are in the area, I recommend stopping by Slice of Wall Street for a bite – their garlic knots are excellent.
