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.

My birthday, which I have blasphemously referred to as KRISmas is fast approaching. This is going to be a big one; KRISmas XXX (that’s thirty in Roman numerals for those of you who didn’t grow up watching WrestleMania and in case you have a dirty mind…). The thought of thirty has been looming for a while now. I have had a few friends who joined that club already and it has been in the back of my mind for the last few years; in fact, I’ve been struggling with my age since I hit a quarter century. My friend, the blossoming YouTube star that I wrote about earlier this year turned thirty in January and shared thirty things she learned…

But, they say, City Council has deal with personnel issues or ongoing negotiations that need privacy. Fair enough!

There is a misunderstanding about high school friendships. This belief that we will meet up in coffee bars between meetings, and hang out every night playing board games in our thirties. The reality is TV sitcoms have given us a false understanding of our high school friendships, a belief it will continue on a day to day basis as it had in our teenage years. Our correspondence does continue on a platform of digital communication, we know one another, we wish we were together, but we have supper to cook, Netflix to binge, jobs that take up most of the time. One thing that remains consistent from high school, is music. We share a connection through memories of battle bands…

Feature: The Bonavista Social Club

Sometimes the REAL Newfoundland and Labrador gets lost in the shuffle of row houses and screech ins. Our hearts lie truly in the depths of rural Newfoundland, down by the water in the coziness of small, yet connected communities. The Bonavista Social Club is a reminder of the centre of our province, small town, great food and a place to feel at home. Located in the community of Upper Amherst Cove on the Bonavista Peninsula, Bonavista Social Club is owned and operated by Katie and Shane Hayes.  At first glance, it seems to be a cozy restaurant with a few NL fixings but it is more of a food production. Though food is served daily, homemade food and products are available for…
