Henry House
We like to keep our bars secret, and that’s no exception for The Drawing Room. It opens up above Henry House every Friday and Saturday and has an old world charm. Definitely dress to impress. 3rd Floor, Henry House, 1222 Barrington Street,

Lunar Lotus Yoga
Don’t coop yourself up in a studio; peek through those legs and enjoy your favourite Hali spots while in downward-facing dog. They pop-up in a new location every week.

Drop in on the weekend and try these funky crafts – for free! Whether your beat is needle felting or screen-printing, Wonder’neath has the tools to get that creative inspiration flowing. 2891 Isleville Street,

See the Maritimes in the best way that you could: get off the land and into the ocean. This Kayaking operation has paddling excursions, day trips, and a retreat to take your mind off your job waiting back on land. 84 Mason's Point Road, Tangier,

Bike Again!
Instead of tossing your bike to the curb, contribute to the HRM cycling community and bring your bike to this volunteer-run organization. You can even learn how to repair your bike yourself.
