Food Trucks at City Hall Thursday Event
On your next visit to Thunder Bay you may be amazed at the food truck frenzy that has hit Northwest Ontario's largest metropolitan centre on the shores of Lake Superior. These food trucks, like in other large urban centres, no longer serve just hot dogs and hamburgers but offer fine food on four wheels. Barbecupid, Success in First Year “In my opinion, owning a food truck is like having seven restaurant locations a week. I bring the restaurant to the customer instead of making the customer come to the restaurant,” says Mike, the owner of Barbecupid with an upbeat view of the food truck business. With sellout sales of his deep fried pickerels, Mike, is stoked about the response he’s…

Paddling on Lake Superior in Thunder Bay Harbour with a great view of the Sleeping Giant
I admit it.  I hadn’t thought of paddling within the city limits of Thunder Bay until last summer when friends invited me on guided kayak tour on the McIntyre River and Lake Superior’s Thunder Bay Harbour.  Now I’m hooked on it. Our group of five paddlers (including two novices) and two guides set out about a mile from the river’s mouth.  Kayaking on this river – which is actually 47.5 km long and drains a watershed of 15,410 hectares -- was kind of surreal:  the waterway was peaceful and calm, as if we were wilderness kayaking somewhere, but peeking over the banks at times you could glimpse shopping malls, parking lots, busy road traffic and electrical towers. Interesting contrast. We…
