Awards 2023

If you’re considering moving to Barrie, ON you’re doing so for good reason. If you’re not considering it, then this next series of blogs will most likely change your mind. Barrie is such an incredible place to live. The city has a lot of awesome things to offer. That’s why I’ve decided to write about the many reasons why I love Barrie.

Today we will be discussing an event called Barrielicious that allows you the opportunity to discover the many exceptional restaurants and eateries that exist in our beautiful city. Here’s the jist of it, you visit the Barrielicious website and check out which restaurants are participating. There is no shortage for places to try considering there are 37 involved from the Barrie area… Then you make a reservation at the restaurant of your choice and wait in anticipation for the day to come. When your magical day arrives, you will be able to select three course meal options ranging in prices of $15, $20 and $25 dollars. Trust me, this is peanuts when compared to the euphoric joyride your pallet will endure. Most venues will offer wine pairing options as well.  The majority of the restaurants involved are privately owned and operated exposing you to more than just the usual corporate cookery.

I have dined out no less than two times per Barrielicious event since its creation and have been blown away every time. The chefs and restaurant staff really go above and beyond for you which increases your appreciation of your evening out.

Barrielicious starts this Friday January 24th, so if you’re new to Barrie make sure you book a reservation so you can experience the excellence which many locals have come to enjoy. I plan to go three maybe four times this year.

If you head out to Barrielicious, comment below and let me know where you went and what you thought.

This event is one of the many reasons I love Barrie. You’ll hear more soon.
