I love all my blog followers and the good folks who play my Where In Ottawa contest.
But this month, I find the winner a little extra special.
Because, there's a beer connection.
Congratulations to Marc, who correctly guessed that this month's location is the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Here are the clues, explained:
- Doctor... Doctor... Give me the news... news...: Yes, this is a song. Sort of. The college is located at 774 Echo Drive. Hence the "Doctor... Doctor..." and "news... news... ."
- Blood sisters: this building was originally a monastery that was occupied by the Sisters of the Precious Blood.
- Monastery no more: in 1992, the college took up residence here. It's no longer a monastery.
Marc, our winner, is involved with a new brewery that will hopefully open later this year, in Pembroke, just up the Ottawa River.
So Marc, your copy of my book is on its way. And I want to say this: before you open your doors to Square Timber Brewing Company, I want an invitation. And a private tour.
You hear me??
