I’ve attempted some weird moves on George Street over the years from breaking out the robot to leading the entire dancefloor into an impromptu “Macarena” dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” but one move I have never attempted (to my recollection) on the street or in one of its twenty-four bars is a downward dog. That all changed this past Saturday when I took my mat and joined some fellow yogis for Yoga on George. The event, which coincided with the 33rd annual George Street Festival was a complimentary yoga class hosted by lululemon St. John’s who celebrated the grand opening of their store last year with a community yoga class right in the middle of George. Before the…

Title

“Summer + Local Beer + Local Pizza + Quidi Vidi,” boasted the ticket page for the pizza pairing event put off by Quidi Vidi Brewery and Olio which sounds like a winning combination to me.  St. John’s has been blessed with what has so far been an awesome summer and hopefully, you are getting out there and enjoying the weather. I couldn’t think of a better way to take a break from my summer session courses at MUN than to visit Quidi Vidi for some beer and pizza on July 19th.

Free Comic Book Day started in 2002 and is coordinated by the comic industry’s single large distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors but the idea came about one year earlier when retailer Joe Field wrote a column for a comics magazine that noted the positive cultural and financial effect that successful feature films based on superheroes were having on the comic book industry. It was eventually decided that the first Free Comic Book Day should be held on the…

Record Store Day 2017

in Music by
Record Store Day

It’s been about seven years since I first heard of Record Store Day and even then, I didn’t know too much about it other than the fact that my favorite band in the entire galaxy U2, was releasing a limited edition (of only five thousand to be exact) EPs on vinyl for Record Store Day’s “Back To Black Friday” initiative. At the time, I didn’t even own a record player, but I contacted our local record store, Fred’s and asked if they were getting any copies of this collectible item in. That’s all I thought of Wide Awake In Europe; a collectible item. Black Friday came and went and I got my hands on the record. The EP’s sleeve was…

  The Geek shall inherit the Earth! (At least that’s what it says in the Bible, doesn’t it?) If this weekend’s Sci-Fi on the Rock was any indication, the Geek DENITIELY inherit Newfoundland. If you found yourself at the Sheraton or anywhere in its vicinity this weekend it definitely would not have been all that strange to see people dressed as Hogwarts students, Doctor Who’s, superheroes, intergalactic bounty hunters and anything in between. Since its inception. Sci-Fi On The Rock has become the largest science fiction and fantasy convention in the province and I finally got a chance to go on Saturday with two little Younglings in tow. Yes, in an effort to keep the title of “Flyest Uncle In…
