You have a friend coming to Calgary who has never visited the city before. What restaurant would you take them to and why?
Brad Cunningham: Nick’s Steak House. Awesome food and atmosphere , 100% unique to Calgary
Shane Keating: Bolero. That presentation of food delivery is very unique.
You are inviting several friends to join you for dinner. Two live on the outskirts of the city and their car is out of service. They must travel 20 km to reach the restaurant and they’ve asked you for advice about the best way to get there. What would you recommend and why?
Brad Cunningham: Uber! Great rates and good service.
Shane Keating: Build the Green Line and meet me there!
You arrive at the restaurant, and first course arrives. You notice one of your friends is double-dipping in the shared appetizer. How do you react?
Brad Cunningham: Jokingly call them out ?
Shane Keating: Inform them that you can only double dip if you change ends on your first contacts. No more dipping afterward!
The main course has arrived and the conversation has turned to politics, specifically secondary suites. Your good friend tells the table he has been fighting to convert his basement to a secondary suite but has been caught up in red tape at city hall. He then confesses he’s renting it out despite it being illegal. Will you report it? Why or why not?
Brad Cunningham: No, I support free enterprise and if his neighbors have no issues with it then I believe he should have the right to do so.
Shane Keating: No. The process as it stands should be followed, but we need to recognize that changes are needed.
