I’m sure we’ve all got our favourite breakfast restaurant in Thunder Bay. But in case you don’t, you’re in luck. Our March issue is dedicated to the most important meal of the day, where our dedicated team of early-risers have sampled 16 different dishes from around the city. Plus, what’s more Thunder Bay than Finnish pancakes and saunas? Writer Emma Christensen looks at the history of Kangas Sauna as they celebrate 50 years. Or maybe you’re the stay-in type who likes to make breakfast at home? Chef Rachel Globensky serves up her delicious breakfast poutine recipe and sommelier Jeannie Dubois offers some great breakfast/brunch cocktail ideas.

Keeping with our theme, menswear stylist Lyle Morissette provides some suggestions for brunch wear, and film columnist Michael Sobota digs into breakfast in movies. March also brings us the Sleeping Giant Loppet, and Betty Carpick explores the humble origins of the premier cross-country event as they celebrate their 40th anniversary. Also in the issue, Peter Jabs chats with Tom Wilson from Blackie and the Rodeo Kings about their upcoming concert in the city and Leah Ching gets a sneak peek of Cambrian Players’ upcoming production of The Fully Monty.

So whether you’re going out or staying in for breakfast, the start of the day is one of the best times to read The Walleye (but no matter how much bacon grease or maple syrup you might accidentally spill on this month’s issue, it still won’t make the magazine edible).
