If you get the munchies while waiting for your bus (or any other time, 24/7), a few bucks will get you a hot or cold pizza to go.

We’ve come a long way since March of last year! There is certainly a familiar (and at times frustrating) rhythm to COVID-19 restrictions but we continue to adapt, offering community programming when safe and possible under official health guidelines.
Our in-person After-4 program has been running since September 2020 and continues to grow as we become more confident and more knowledgeable about how to manage groups safely. We are adapting to changing COVID-19 scenarios, developing in-person activities (especially for children) to explore and learn in an active, safe and fun setting, outside and inside.
Thank you for your support and generosity. Whether it’s registering for a program or pledging your financial support on a monthly basis, every contribution counts. Monthly pledges add up over time and with many families pledging their support we can make sure that our community centre remains open in 2021.
We are very excited to see the transformation of a venerable business in the Sunnyside/Seneca area, from what seems to have been a “corner store” forever…or at least since we arrived in the neighbourhood in 1995! The transformation began, when the new owners started clearing out junk in the back of the store. This is where the brothers Fares and Tamer discovered an old butchers block. They realized they were continuing an Old Ottawa South business which needed love.
As we sit at home in this second lockdown, many of us have been enjoying the chance to watch movies together more than ever. For a lot of us, that means renting DVDs from a local small business, Glebe Video International. Film lovers in Ottawa know that Glebe Video International is an irreplaceable gem, the place where one can find thousands of films from around the world and through the decades—films no streaming service offers.
Earlier this week, the Government of Ontario announced that some regions can now transition into Phase 2 of "Reopening Ontario". Eastern Ontario is one of the regions that will enter Phase 2 of reopening on Friday June 12th. This means that in addition to the non-essential stores that were already allowed to open in Phase 1, businesses like personal care services and restaurant patios are now also allowed to open.
Following the lead of several BIAs and Community Associations, we put together an overview of local businesses and how they are adjusting to the COVID-19 situation.
If you haven't already noticed, take a closer look at the Oat Couture Cafe. On Thursdays to Sundays, it transforms nightly into the Montgomery Scotch Lounge, featuring fine malts, scotch, beer, and small plates.
In this announcement from the October 1978 OSCAR, Larry McDonald reports on a new name in the neighbourhood.
Title: The Corner of Sunnyside Avenue and Seneca Street
Address: 431, 435, 437 Sunnyside Avenue and 41, 43, and 44 Seneca Street, Ottawa, Ontario.
The corner of Sunnyside Avenue and Seneca Street currently comprises four buildings which combine commercial and domestic spaces. In the early period of Old Ottawa South’s development (pre-1950) this corner had particular importance as one on which Ottawa’s streetcars turned. It has continuously included commercial spaces since 1907.
