Do more of what you love
In October of 2009, in a little hole-in-the wall Vietnamese restaurant on 17th avenue, Calgary Foodies was born. At the time it was just an idea. A journal of sorts for two passionate foodies.
Eventually, the domain name was bought, wordpress was installed, and a facebook page was created. A brief back and forth with twitter allowed us to assume the calgaryfoodies handle, which had previously been registered – but not utilized – by someone whom we have yet to identify. It began.
It, was a journey that would take us on the culinary adventures of a lifetime. Locally, we would impact the Calgary food scene, becoming the restaurant authority for the social media inclined. An employee of the Globe and Mail confided in us that we were on their radar.
The Globe and Mail!? Seriously? Yeah.
Not bad for a passion project. We hope you love it as much as we do. Enjoy.
