Come see what crawled up in Southcentre Mall

What: In collaboration with Beakerhead, there is now a 16-ft-tall dung beetle sculpture in the middle of the Inner Circle. The sculpture was created by Alberta native Max Streicher and encourages visitors to interact with the piece as art, science, and engineering fuse together. This is an exciting sneak peek of what Beakerhead has in store for this year.

When: Until September 14

Time: Regular mall hours

Where: Southcentre Mall, The Inner Circle – 100 Anderson Road SE

Soak up the last rays of summer on a patio

What: Take a break from the heat and have an ice-cold bevy on one of Calgary’s best patios. From rooftops to hidden gardens, there are plenty of spots to choose from that will have the vibe and ambience you’re looking for. Check out some of Calgary’s best rooftop patios here.

Enjoy a drink at the King Eddy Hotel

What: The highly-anticipated King Eddy is finally (and permanently) re-opened. The revitalized King Edward Hotel was built way back in 1905, so to say this spot is legendary would be an understatement.
