Now i’ve always loved fine cottons. The Hill-side are modern kings of cotton. Primarily small square or rectangular items, i.e: ties, pocket squares, scarfs, and bandanas. From simple solid colours, all the way to wildly printed. They mix the classic with the modern wonderfully which just makes it fun to wear. Check out Hill-side virtually (here) or in analog at Four Horseman in downtown Victoria (here).
Oh, my lord. I just had the best lunch of my life. At La Belle Patate at 1215 Esquimalt road. Poutine and a steamed hot dog. Yes, Even the decor was perfect. You can tell that these people have some passion for their work. They must have served fifteen people in the twenty minutes I was there. What an amazing local business. Lets all keep our fingers crossed that a downtown location could some day become a reality. Visit La Belle Patate’s website (here), they also have locations in Vancouver, and Canmore. Below is a picture of the epic poutine I had for lunch.
So, I love British television, I also love spy thrillers. Spooks is the best mix of both. There is ten seasons. The final season ten just being wrapped up last week. I whole heartedly recommend getting into this one. Start at season two and work through them season by season. The show is based at Thames House the headquarters of MI-5. The show follows the lives of the agents of Section D – Counter Terrorism. Being a BBC production the episodes are a full hour and commercial free. This is not *cough* a link to a torrent for seasons 1-5 of spooks (here)

Arguably the great family in the world, another Savage with an eye for art. Chris Savage has some serious talents with a pen. And currently his skills are on display at Discovery coffee here in Downtown Victoria, at the Discovery Street location. For more examples of Chris work check out his tumblr (here) or head on over to Discovery coffee for a french press, and some fresh art.
