Riversdale Delicatessen is a fantastic find for foodies
Riversdale Delicatessen101 20th St. W.306-954-3355For years I argued that I didn’t lose out on any fundamental foodie delights by moving back to Saskatoon from a larger city — as a serious cook, I can find 95 per cent of the ingredients I need in Saskatoon. The only adjustment has been that specialty stores are few and far between: there’s one store in Saskatoon that offers a given specialty item, for example, rather than 12.So not a huge deal — but for anyone who follows food trends, it’s sometimes tough not to focus on that missing five per cent.

Crazy.Seriously, there’s not much any of us can keep secret anymore, which is a shame. But what’s a tragedy is that it’s far, far worse for the public figures and/or celebrities among us.Poor helpless buggers — all they’ve ever wanted to do was lead / entertain / control (oops! Too much honesty there, sorry!). Yet now every intimate (or bland, come to think of it) secret of their fantastically wealthy and wonderful lives is now public knowledge for the great unwashed (that’d be the rest of us) to chew on like buzzards dipping their beaks into carrion.Really, there’s only one thing they have left that’s utterly and completely their own: their perfect drink. And what kind of horrible, soulless person would try to take that away?Why, that would be us!So please enjoy the following, where we’ve ferreted out some of the perfect drinks most beloved by public people. And cheers, everybody! /Chris Kirkland JUSTIN BIEBERWith all the cocktails named after some of the the great mustachioed men of hist
