New Brunswick Might Be Your Next Destination For Vacations In Canada

Exotic locations seem to be the primary focus whenever people travel but what if I told you that taking vacations IN Canada is actually becoming more and more popular.

I see you screaming at the top of your lungs something around the lines of : Vacations in Canada?! How is that even considered vacations?

I was skeptical like you just a month ago, until I’ve found the equivalent of going to New Orleans, Europe while on a constant excursion in nature AND on Canadian soil.


That piece of paradise is called New Brunswick.

A couple weeks ago, we were invited by Tourisme Nouveau-Brunswick to discover how this province is really a gem in disguise.

I left the event feeling like I’ve just found a peaceful place and a cultural experience like no other.

For the occasion,  they took over Centre Phi in order to make us experience the province on a culinary and cultural level


Here’s how it went down

Watch Now

So today we will give you 5 reasons why you should take New-Brunswick as your next location for vacations in Canada.


#1 The SeaFood Is Out Of This World

At the event, we had oysters, caviar, tartar, lobster and more.

New Brunswick, as a province, is part of the Maritimes (for those who had a time in geography , it means the province is surrounded by the Atlantic ocean).

Fishing being an ancestral tradition in the area, the food is taking freshly from the ocean directly to your plate.

All across the province, bars, restaurants give you a different taste of what seafood in New Brunswick is like.


#2 The Landscape Is Breathtaking

Far away from the skyscrapers, the grey fog of the city.

New Brunswick  takes you back in the arms of mother nature.

At least a dozen beaches to experience and some of the most interesting rock structures and forests that Canada has to offer.

You get to see whales, enjoy jet skis and everything possible to do on water, they got it (for real).


Indeed, the famous ”Rocher Percé” is still a once in a lifetime type of sight.

#3 Take The Road, Be Free

I don’t know for you but whenever I have the opportunity to make a road trip, I seize it!

6 hours from Montreal, it’s a different view than your usual itinerary to the border of the States.

and once again the sights and places are worth taking the time to explore.


#4 A Cultural Experience, Yes It Is

Quebec has its history and New Brunswick which is sort-of-kind-of  our cousin sure has its history too.

Acadians welcome tourists with open arms, educating them about their story of oppression but also of pride.

Many festivities, costume celebrations and cultural events are taking place during the summer and the energy is contagious.

#5 Taking Vacations In Canada Is Really A Thing

The world is bigger than Montreal, yes.


You don’t always need to go out of the country to live amazing experiences.

A lot of provinces, cities and even villages (yes I said villages) are there for you to explore.

If you don’t feel like taking a plane, if you want to take your time with it.

If you look somewhere not too similar but with a slight edge of familiarity than what we have in Quebec.


New Brunswick is the place to be.

After all, as they say up there, it’s still ”Canada’s Ocean Playground” right?

Lobster Season Has Arrived And The Homard Gaspésien Is Still The Best You Can Find On The Planet



The Homard Gaspésien Is What Your Plate Been Missing

2 weeks ago our good people at L’association Des Pêcheurs De Gaspésie sent us the email we’ve been waiting for all year long: The Homard Gaspésien Is Back!

Read More: Renzel Dashington Creates The Line Between Social Commentary & Comedy And We Love It!

Not only that but for this season, we were blessed not only with 1 but 2 dozens of lobsters from the region. I know what you’re thinking right now? Why would one person do with all those lobsters?

I will answer this question in a bit but while I have your attention, let me tell you all that I’ve learned about the Homard Gaspésien.


First, this is probably one of the few lobsters in the world that you can trace where it was fished at.

Indeed, they add a little tag to their claw that traces the lobsters from Gaspésie to your home so by then you know the authenticity of lobsters at all time.

Gaspésie is also one of the main resource provider in Canada when it comes to lobsters and all kind of seafood. (and yes my taste buds do appreciate the fishermen that went out and got them).

Back to the business. Once I got the email, I felt the need to do something special this year. I wanted something challenging and something where I could share my love for those lobsters.


Then I thought about my good people at Never Was Average and how they usually go about things. They bring people together in a meaningful way.

That’s when ”Meeting Of The Minds” came to me. I like to conversate with my fellow creatives, exchange ideas and compliment them on their artistry.

With the help of Never Was Average we were able to thank those same creatives for their contributions with a special dinner over lobsters and bubbles. Sophia Traiteurs Cathering came through with her magic touch and prepared us a seafood bowl in cajun style.

Since we like to give our audience a glimpse into our creative process, we made it a point to document this entire experience. Those moments that were shared and lived got captured and frozen in time by our collaborator Carl Apollo.

This experience reminded me of two things: We should always take the time to build and celebrate each other more and of course doing it over lobsters is a plus.

As the lobster season is closing on us. Treat yourself and grab your loved ones for an experience you won’t regret.

Renzel Dashington Creates The Line Between Social Commentary & Comedy And We Love It!



Renzel Dashington’s Rise In The Comedy World Is A True Testament Of How Thunder Can Strike Twice

Renzel Dashington to me is a case study in itself when you really think about it. Most men get to be recognized for one specific claim to fame if ever. If you’re lucky enough, you go on to transition in something else in your field and for the most part that’s it.

Renzel did the unheard, unseen, unbelievable and unorthodox all at the same time. First of all, he started off as a manager for arguably the most iconic and successful black singer this city has ever seen: Corneille.

I know some naysayers might hit me with ”Ouais mais Seul Au Monde was a long a time ago?!”. Technically yes but just like Michael Jordan. Some guys have accomplished things that have never been replicated since and therefore you have to respect it.


That’s where it gets interesting if you ask me. Usually the typical story arch for the manager is this: he gets his or her client to the promise land, they get rich and then usually the artist severs ties due to ”creative differences” or simply for trying something new.

After 20 years of career, a major twist came In Renzel Dashington‘s story. The manager became yet again a sort of manager since he was more behind the scenes when he first founded Bad Boys Du Rire. It was a movement, it told the comedy scene in Quebec that black and brown people had something to say too.

In The process, Bad Boys Du Rire went on to sell over 20 000 tickets, 200 shows and 10 000 minutes were spent on stage by artists that the market initially rejected. I respect people who are able to spot those gaps and make the most out it.

Then a global pandemic hits and something made the artist in him come out of its shell once and for all!


Maybe that’s why in the midst of George Flloyd’s death and the BLM movement, Renzel’s offering was different and needed. On one hand he would let you know what’s going on in society and on the other he would crack jokes about racism, racists, Covid measures and all those different things that were still sensitive and too serious at the time.

It was a relief from your day to day. You knew he would talk about it, make fun of it and you would have a good time. Renzel Dashington was transparent, honest, held no punches and even sparked some interesting debates or rivalry like whatever he got going on with Richard Martineau and Sophie Durocher these days.

Nonetheless it was only right that the comedian give us an official outlet to experiment live his new format that he introduced us to. His one man show ”Yo Les Bailles Sont F*cked Up” is exactly that.

Renzel being Renzel joking on stage about things, topics and people Renzel and the rest of world actually care about. Following the good response he had in Europe with 27 shows back to back shows in 14 days from his material, it was only right that we get some hometown love.


Taking place May 26th at Ausgang Plaza, the one man show is a must if you’re truly a fan of stand up comedy that tackles the real, the crazy, the good, the bad and of course the fucked up.
