Featured Retailer – Diaper-eez

Bloor West Village… more like Bloor Best Village! Diaper-eez is located in one of Toronto’s not-so-hidden gems. The neighbourhood is great. The people are great and the baby clothing stores, fantastic. Especially when the premier one of the neighbourhood has some of the best cloth diapers available on the market.

If you haven’t been to Diaper-eez, here’s a couple reasons why you need to check them out!

 

They are family owned and operated

Diaper-eez was established in 1994 by Elva McCurdy and daughter, Susan Tomaszewski with a vision to create a comfortable and educational environment for new and expecting parents to learn about cloth diapers and other necessities.

Here are three reasons why we love West Coast Kids, and why you should too!

 

Selection

I challenge you to find a quality product that West Coast Kids doesn’t carry online or in store. Wee Urban ourselves are in every single West Coast Kids store! Other brands that they carry range from stroller, to car seats, to bedding, to clothing. Everything you need is at West Coast Kids. Including Wee Urban, did we mention that already?

 

Family Mentality

West Coast Kids is a family run store. E-Children was started by Marsha Dashefsky almost 40 years ago in Winnipeg. In 2007, they went ahead and opened up the mammoth that is West Coast Kids today. With Marsha’s daughter Robyn, fully on board, the flagship store in Richmond started to produce the quality service, advice and products that we all are accustomed to. No matter how large West Coast Kids has became over the last 8 years, the family mentality comes through in their commitment to provide a great service and to keep the best interests of their customers above everything else.

 

Charity

Not the charity you’re currently thinking. What I’m referring to is the often misused version of charity, which really should just mean, “giving back”. Whether it’s through giveaways (like the one they ran with us in Mid May) or DOTD’s (Deal of the days) where they give 25% of a selected product in their stores and online. WCK is constantly giving back to their loyal customers! Not only is their gear amazing, if you pay attention, it could be free!

 

West Coast kids is currently offering free shipping on orders over $49.00

You can find our sleep bags in store, and right here

Thank you West Coast Kids for being such an amazing supporter of Wee Urban over the years!

And thank you to all of our fans. We promise to continue to bring you quality products, and be associated with quality stores and people.

FTD – For The Dads – Devin’s Top 5 Beers for St. Paddy’s Day

st-patricks-daySt. Paddy’s is just one of those holidays that really needs to happen on a Friday or Saturday… Don’t ya agree! Well we’re all adults here, so let’s cut to the chase. There’s nothing like an ice cold beer, (or glass of wine, if you’re classy) after a long day with the kids. For me, considering I don’t have kids, let’s call it a long day with my dog, who whines and needs to go outside far too much, and is afraid of the rain, and snow, anyways.


Sometimes you just need a cold one to take the edge off and properly relax. So in the spirit of St. Paddy’s day. Here are my Top 5 Beer choices. We get a little classy, we get a little sassy, and we’re always tasty.

Budweiser

Ahh, the old classic, the King, as they say. I once heard a comedian say that he doesn’t drink Heneiken, because when you’re at a bar and have had a few too many. “Heneiken” is just too difficult to articulate, so, that’s where Budweiser comes in. Whether you’ve had 2, or 20. You can always say, “Bud”. It’s perfect for St. Paddy’s as it couples a decent flavour at a great price point. But watch out, because Bud is brewed with rice, instead of wheat, the next day headaches are killer… Of course, a trade off most of us are always wiling to make.

Sleeman Clear 2.0

Maybe not what you thought was coming, but definitely an option. I’m a fan of strong, crisp beers, but if you’re looking keep the pounds down and not feel bloated from a night of increased hydration, this is by far the best low-calorie option. It still maintains that crisp Sleeman taste, without making you feel like a hot air balloon. I’ve heard many guys say that they don’t want to touch these types of beers, but listen, it does the same job, and if you feel cleaner doing it, then jump right into it. After all, they all taste the same after a while anyways…

MOLSON COORS BREWING COMPANY - Coors Banquet

Coors Banquet

I guess we can call this the College Beer. There’s just something about Coors Banquet that makes me feel nostalgic, and it is the only beer that I prefer in a can. Call me crazy but I’m not a fan of Coors Light, but the Banquet understands me. It’s golden can, and even more golden taste, make me feel like I’m in Los Angeles watching the Kings beat the Capitals (true story), or I’m back at home, in my childhood bedroom with my mini-fridge stacked with little golden babies. Plus, I personally think it tastes great, and a good can option is always better than a bottle when travelling.

Miller Lite/MGD

Like I mentioned, I’m not a huge fan of light beer, thankfully, I am a fan of Lite beer, (see what I did there, spellcheck is saying it’s spelled wrong) Anyways, Miller Lite is finally in Canada, and that is great news for anyone who likes light beer with good taste. It goes down smooth and easy, and is incredibly affordable. You won’t know what hit you. An honourable mention must go out to it’s ancestor… MGD, those clear bottles, they are just beautiful. Aren’t they?

Guinness-original-logo.svg

Guiness

Well, it’s not St. Paddy’s without being genuinely Irish… and there is nothing more Irish, other than Potato’s, than Guiness. It is probably the only beer I’ve ever enjoyed that I cannot see through, and to honour its tradition, and to not hurt my pocket book, it is a St. Paddy’s only beverage. It doesn’t matter what you’re drinking on March 17th. You have to at least pour one of these out for ol’ St. Patrick!

This beerly beloved blog is brought to you by Wee Urban’s own, Devin Sarges. A constant supporter of the Toronto St. Pats/Maple Leafs – I know. I really do know.
