Happy Victoria Day everyone! If you are at home we hope you are enjoying your weekend and if you are away please drive safely and everyone arrive alive. A little bit of trivia for you taken from the net:

If you want a great plate of Chinese food visit Lucky's Kitchen inside Jackpot Casino, Red Deer. Their menu features a great variety of chinese and western cuisine. I recently enjoyed a Combination A, pictured below, and it was delicious! They feature specials every day and on Wednesdays seniors enjoy 2 for 1. Friendly staff and bright atmosphere.
