While there are many reasons to head down to 4th Street this summer (um hello – parks, food, drinks and more!), here are five fantastic reasons to make your way down to Mission for a good time right now. Yes, right now.
♥ Herbaceacous Cocktails Workshop at Neal’s Yard Remedies
There is no better way to enjoy these last few weeks of summer than by enjoying some refreshing beverages in the sun. Neal’s Yard Remedies is hosting a fantastic workshop in their store Wednesday August 10th. This hands-on interactive class will teach you how to make your own healthy cocktails that will keep you feeling cool when the weather heats up! Come out for a fun night, and be prepared to have a cocktail, or mocktail – or two! Tickets are $50 for a 90 minute workshop. Not to be missed!
♥ Old School Burgers at Flipp’n Burgers
I recently checked this place out for a meal and was beyond excited to find that they had gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options – which is actually very hard to find at old school burger joints. The second location in the city (the other one is in Kensington) Flipp’n Burgers is located where the Mission Diner used to be on 4th Street. I love their old school vibe and their delicious burgers. Their french fries are to die for and come up with all sorts of dipping sauces like Basil Pesto Aioli. Yum.
♥ Shokunin’s New Drinking Snacks Menu
It is no secret that Shokunin is one of my many favourite places to dine on 4th Street. They like to keep things fresh and exciting with inspired new cocktails and amazing bites by rotating things all of the time. They just launched a delicious new menu that people are already salivating over dishes like Yaki Onigiri and Squid Tempura. Pop in for a few share plates, some cocktails and great conversation.
♥ Bumble + Bumble Sale at Butter Beauty Parlour
In the spirit of summer, Butter Beauty Parlour currently has a sale on select Bumble + Bumble products that are perfect for achieving the best air-dried, summer mermaid waves. Products included for the 20% off sale are Surf Infusion, Grooming Creme, Bb. Curl Defining Creme, Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler and Surf Spray. I use the last two all of the time and highly recommend them!
♥ Floating at Clear Float Spa
Summer seems to be flying by and I’m sure we could all use a bit of a break to slow down and enjoy the moment. It is the perfect time to book yourself in for a float at the recently opened Clear Float Spa. Take a one hour breather in one of their state-of-the-art float tanks and allow yourself to drift away into relaxation mode. They offer a $49 Alpha Intro which includes three floats in your first month. It is a great way to try out floating see how it can help reduce stress levels, increase mental clarity as well as many other health benefits!
