Fancy tonic water in Calgary?

We tried Q, Fever Tree, Fentimans, Canada Dry and Schweppes. Winners were Fever Tree and Schweppes (blind tasting).

Cookbook Co. has fever tree - $2.50/bottle, and they have Fentiman's as well. Also Wine Arts carries both. Also, Community has better prices on Q tonic then planet organic.

Thanks for all the pointers! Tonight, we do some G&T blind taste testing to find the favourite!!

I found some Fentimans tonic at Blush Lane organic market, but it is apparently not something they normally stock. Cost was $2.49/bottle.

Birch's Beverages (http://www.birchbeverage.com) say they will sell/deliver by the case (24) - cost is $2.25/bottle.

They don't - even though they are listed as a distributor.

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can buy Fentimans or Fever Tree tonic in calgary? I know I can get Q tonic from Planet Organic. They had Fentimans at Charcut - and I'd like some for home.

Thanks!

Seeking Wild Boar

Decided to go with a bone-in pork leg roast. Second to none has the best pork so it should work out quite well.

Seeking Wild Boar

I'm looking for a butcher in Calgary that stocks Wild Boar - My first choice is Second to None, but they are having trouble getting in touch with their supplier. I'm looking for an 8-10lb bone in leg roast for this weekend. I plan to slowly spit-roast it over an open fire.

In the event that I can't get boar on time - Any suggestions on alternatives species / cuts? I'm looking for something interesting (not beef/pork) that I can get easily in the next few days.

Thanks,
-Patrick

Buffet Yangtze - Deerfoot Mall

My work has decided to have the Christmas dinner here this year - Not really my sort of place as far as I can tell. Has anyone eaten here - how's the food, anything stand out more then others? Should I just opt out of the dinner this year? ;-) I'm a a little worried about eating at a chinese buffet because I'm not supposed to eat wheat.. wish we luck.
