charbar - East Village Foodies Rejoice!

Posted 1 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

I've lived in some of the most incredible cities in the world (i.e., Calgary, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Denver and all throughout Europe) and visited more countries that I can count ... and eating good food has always been top on my list of things to do wherever I go. In my travels I've had some of the most amazing culinary experiences, both in award-winning fine dining establishments and local eateries with amazing character and flair. charbar has very quickly moved to the top of my list!

Saluting the Sun at the East Village

Posted 1 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

I've been in the fitness industry for over twenty years and have either taught or participated in thousands of yoga classes of various styles (i.e., Hatha, Ashtanga, Bikram, Moksha, Core Power and the list goes on and on) but there is just something magical about practicing yoga without walls, windows or mirrors getting in the way! Think about how "zen" it would be to truly salute the sun as you reach upwards to the endless sky, standing in Mountain pose on a mountain top or balance in Tree pose in a forest of trees ... breathtaking. And ... that's exactly what you get to experience when you drop by the East Village Experience Centre Deck on Tuesday at noon for their FREE Yoga class (and it's open to ANYONE who wants to join in on the fun)!!

Discussing Retail Opportunities in the East Village

Posted 25 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

Since the very first day I wandered into the East Village, the retail space being promoted on the main floors of both the First and Evolution buildings caught my eye! Now that I am finally back to Calgary for good (and had enough of jet-setting life) I have been seriously thinking about opening up another small specialty studio here in the city. This is something that I have done before (and also consulted other businesses on the process) but was inspired by what I've been learning about the East Village to seriously look into the opportunity and determine whether or not it would be the right time for me.

I Came, I Researched ... and I BOUGHT A CONDO!

Posted 22 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

Hello. My name is Andrea Oh ... and it has been two ways since my last blog post (or "confession"). It's been eight days since I first set foot in the East Village and six days since my first meeting with Sandra Peters at the East Village Experience Centre and today we met again. After researching all the amazing projects planned for Downtown Calgary's East Village and spending time exploring the area and getting to know the people who live and frequent the community there was only one thing to do ... sign the paperwork and drop off the downpayment on a new Verve Condominium!!

The East Village Resident Ambassador Contest ... THIS IS FOR REAL!

Posted 20 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

It's June 20th (t-minus 10 days before the end of the East Village Resident Ambassador Contest ends) and I have an important decision to make. Just five days ago I made my way to the East Village for the first time. Now, I am completely in love with the area, have a great feel for the community that is developing in the East Village and know in my heart it's the place I WANT to be. Now, here comes the hard part ... "WHAT DO I DO?".

Ready, Set ... GO!!

Posted 19 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

A few years ago I got that saying tattooed on my back ... a reminder of the life I used to have and the future I deserve to create for myself. Needless to say it didn't take long for me to realize the only option was to do everything I could to succeed and never look back. But ... I then started wondering, "WHAT EXACTLY DOES THAT MEAN?".

Everything Happens for a Reason

Posted 18 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

I believe in "signs" ... and today was just another one telling me I belong in the East Village! Today's events were just another example of how a window opens when a door is found shut (literally).

Research ... Research ... RESEARCH!!!

Being Asian is both a blessing and a curse (and I can say this because I am 100 percent Chinese and can totally "own" my Asian-ness). Hard work has never been a problem for me. It's helped me see great success in my life and career. From my performance on the job to my athletic pursuits (both recreational and competitive) and the home improvement projects on the weekend, I don't punch a clock and put in whatever time and effort is needed to get the job done.

How Did I Miss the EV Experience Centre?

Posted 16 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

Today marked the beginning of my "East Village Education" ... thanks to Sandra Peters (the Sales Manager currently showing the Verve Condominiums). After just one meeting I was ready to start a complete social media campaign (including this website) to win the East Village Resident Ambassador Contest!

Downtown Calgary's East Village - Giving It a Second Chance

Posted 15 June 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian

My journey with this website ( all began in Downtown Calgary's East Village. A post shared by a friend and a fired up curiosity had me driving up the Deerfoot Trail to something that changed the course of my life ... the East Village Experience Centre!
