Just a Taste: Park Cafe


Location
Park Cafe is located on 515 20th Street.

Environment
I placed an order for take out but analyzed the restaurant as I went to pick up my food. After watching a lot of Diner, Drive Ins and Dives and having family own restaurants of their own, I understand that you can't judge any restaurant before experiencing service and tasting the food. The building is outdated but that doesn't stop anyone from lining up at their doors and filling their seats. The woman who gave me my food was very friendly.

Menu
Before browsing the menu, many have praised their breakfast options and hamburgers. The selection was beyond me from steak and eggs, burgers to salads. There truly is something for everyone.

Food
I went with a cod sandwich with fries and onion rings (shared sides with a friend). The taste was great, the fish had a light batter that you could peel off with a nice homemade tarter sauce. The bun too was soft and proportionate to the cod. It was quite messy, but a messy sandwich is always the best (minus Subway). The fries and onion rings themselves were homemade and delicious, and they give you a large portion.


Conclusion
This place is delicious, I am happy I finally had the opportunity to eat here. The cost per meal to what you receive is fantastic as well, you really get your dollars worth. With the size of menu and things that that caught my eye, I will definitely be back!

Air Jordan XII | Taxi


The Air Jordan XII "Taxi" (130690-125) has been on the radar for many blog followers and writers. The last time we had this model was in 2008 and it was part of the Collezione Package. The original pair released in November of 1996 and was inspired by the Japanese Nisshōki flag and women's dress boots. The Taxi utilizes a tumbled white leather and black pebbled leather mudguard. I assume that these are going to sell quickly, so grab coffee and a bite and endure the cold bright and early. You know where to go, Foot Locker or Momentum.

Shad at Amigos | November 23, 2013


This Saturday, Canadian rapper Shad will return to Amigo's to perform another show. You may be thinking that he was here recently with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis but just the other month his album Flying Colours released, hence the tour. For a measly $18, I highly recommend that you come out. This dude seriously knows how to perform. Tickets should still be available online.

Now Playing: Rich Kidd

I can't tell you much about Rich Kidd, except for that he is from Toronto. I have heard his name numerous times but after browsing social media, came across some of his tracks. He is an artist and producer and is generating a large amount of fame in the city of Toronto. Rich Kidd has an album releasing soon but in the meantime here are some tracks that I enjoyed.

Barnstone Tournament | 2013


It's about that time of year again where the old soccer centre reaches full capacity. The tournament is put on by the Barnstone Master's team and never fails to be a good time. From playing competitively to playing recreationally to watching, the tournament is always a blast. Like usual, those who enter the open league play for cash prizes and there is a mens, womens and co-ed group. This year the tournament will be held November 15-17. Come be a part of Barnstone and watch games and be a part of the social event. I hope to see you out!

Eminem Ft. Kendrick Lamar | Love Game

NSFW


A fun beat and a mixture of flows makes this song easily liked. It is nice to finally hear Em rap with Kendrick, both equally blessing the track. It is sort of like an old school meets new school situation under Dre. Eminem's full album drops on November 5. What are your thoughts?

Air Jordan V | Laney


The Jordan V "Laney" (136027-189) has been on a lot of  sneaker enthusiast's calendars since the rumour of its release. Thankfully it is true, the Laney will drop November 2, 2013. Releasing only once before, the colours and name come from Michael Jordan's high school Emsley A. Laney High School. This white tumbled leather upper sits on top of a blue and yellow midsole. Damn these look clean! You will be able to find these at Foot Locker and Momentum.

Playstation | For the Players Since 1995



I've been with the Playstation since the beginning so this commercial hit home for me. Like the advertisement, I spent my years of university playing PS2 and PS3 whenever I had the chance. That was a successful commercial in my opinion, even more reason for me to be persuaded to buy a PS4.

Air Jordan V | 3Lab5



The "3Lab5" Jordan V has finally reached its way to Canada ( 599581-007). I imagine that you have seen this on the internet or some sort of social media outlet. The Jordan brand decided to take the elephant print from the Jordan III and give to the V for this special project. The entire upper is an elephant print and is combined with a black and gamma blue midsole. No doubt that it's crazy but it may be worth you getting your hands on them to have a one of a kind shoe. The American release had a quick turnover for many retailers, and Ebay with a bunch of $350 shoes up for grabs.

The North Face: "Into The Mind" | October 24


On October 24 at Village Guitar & Amp Co. (432 20th St W) there will be a showing of The North Face's "Into the Mind" documentary. Into The Mind is a documentary that focuses on The North Face’s athletes. It gives the viewer an understanding of taking risks from their perspectives. Team sports are quite different than individual sports, and having less experience in that department encourages me to learn more. The visuals in the trailer itself are crazy (peep it in full screen). Tickets cost $12 and can be purchased at Momentum 8th, Momentum Marketplace and Outtabounds. If there are any tickets remaining, they will be sold at the door for $15.

After winning regional competitions, eight DJs competed in Calgary to see who would advance to the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals to represent Canada. Our man Charly Hustle had won our regional Thre3Style and had the opportunity to battle some of the best of Canada. Based on the photos, it seems like he had the crowd going wild!

Air Jordan V | Bel Air


After a two weeks worth of phone calls, Tweets and Instagram messages we are happy to announce that the Bel Air V's arrived (621958-090). If you were a fan of Will Smith's sitcom, you may remember that he wore the Grapes, Fire Reds and other models laceless. This is Nike's tribute to the show. Both pairs have different colours but are influenced by the show's colours. But damn, these shoes have been running through my mind all day! These will be available at stores like Momentum.

"Boys of the Summer" Skate Jam | Photo Recap

This year at Momentum we had windy weather, an injured skater and troubles with our barbecue but our fourth annual skate event was a huge success. We started off with a games of skate won by Cole, Devon and Tyler. This was followed by a best trick contest. After difficult judging by Christian, Brennan, Jeff, Derek, Tyler and myself, we decided that Kamry's Boneless 360 deserved to win it all. We then finished the day off with a product toss from all of our sponsors.
