From old fashioneds to fried chicken, there’s lots to do this weekend
Oh yes, southern fried chicken has come to town! Recently opened by sisters Nicole and Francine Gomes, the small Cluck n’ Cleaver building off 14 Street SW specializes in only the best fried and rotisserie chicken (their potato and egg salad, and fresh, homemade cookies aren’t bad, either). Online ordering now available!

Hours: Sun-Thurs 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Fri-Sat 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Let’s be honest — it’s the long weekend. If you have an opportunity to get out of town, you’re going to take it. Stuck at YYC International? There is always chocolate (also works for a last-minute gift) to pass the time. Cococo Chocolatiers is planning on opening a second store in the international terminal sometime this year!
