As someone who watched Tiger Woods at his very best, win and win, slaughtering every field he was part of, I never thought I would see him play like he did today again! You may not know that I am a serious golf fan, wish I could play as well as I can watch. Tiger Woods is kind of like Apple for me, in that I have an unexplainable affinity to cheer for both, no matter what. It was amazing fun to watch the fans at the PGA Championship roar for Tiger like they did (feel kind of bad for Brooks who experienced first hand the Tiger effect today). If Mr Woods can just get the driver straightened out and start hitting fairways, he definitely has the game to dominate the golf again.
My friend Christine Sandford is an amazing talent. She is the chef at Biera, and has taken this venture to a whole new level in terms of culinary inside a pub. Given the constraints of a beer venue she has created a menu that is local, sustainable, quality focused and most importantly tasty, within the confines of a pub environment. She has found a way to marry fine dining with beer which is no small task. This week she found out that Biera is on Air Canada;s enroute short list for top new restaurant, which is an amazing feat. I am very proud of her accomplishment, as she has stuck to her principles, and standards and produced and executed a menu which is unique to Edmonton, and often not appreciated by many. I predricted that she would make top ten last year, and I hope that I was right. Good luck my friend.
