What’s Hot in Calgary: Babybot and Papa Chocolat

Last night I attended a media launch for the opening of Sit Interiors in the design district on 11th ave. I went because I wanted to get a chance to see the wares at the Babybot pop-up shop housed inside Sit. I have a lot of friends having babies and I like to spoil them with special gifts that can’t be found in regular department stores. With so many baby boutiques closing in Calgary, access to unique and high quality baby products is getting scarce. Normally Babybot is an online store, offering free shipping in Canada but for the next month, Calgary parents can visit them at 820 11th Ave SW.


I also got a chance to meet Bernard Callebaut, affectionately known as Papa Chocolat. If you have never had a chance to visit his store in Willow Park or tried his chocolate, you are missing out on some of the most exquisite chocolate you will ever taste in your life. Last night he offered me a truffle infused with anise. Heaven in a morsel.


If you are around tonight, you are invited to their grand opening event from 5:30-9:30. It will be a great party with food trucks and a brewery showcasing their beverages. If you are interested in attending just send a quick RSVP to

Babybot at Sit will be open Thu-Mon from May 24-June 24, 2012.
