The best part about supporting local is getting to know the people behind the businesses that make it all happen. This knowledge allows you to properly appreciate everything that goes into running the restaurants, bakeries, distilleries, breweries, and experiences that you love.

Staying home, safe, and social distanced means that you aren’t traveling during the colder months. If being home at this time of the year is new to you, or even if it isn’t new, challenge yourself to be as open to new experiences as you’d be on vacation. Locals often overlook the amazing experiences within their own backyards because they aren’t in the “tourist mindset”.

We’re all spending more time with remotes in our hands, making our way quickly through our video libraries and scrolling one, or many, streaming services. No matter what you're watching, you can’t have a binge session without something yummy to go along with it. Thankfully we are spoiled for options in Ontario’s Southwest.
Entertaining this holiday season will look a lot different than in previous years. However, that doesn’t mean your evenings needs to be any less delicious. Plan a cocktail hour in your own home with your significant other and put together your own charcuterie board to go with your favourite drinks.
