Feature: The Bonavista Social Club

in Features by

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…

True believers assemble! Free Comic Book Day is fast approaching. The annual event taking place on the first Saturday in May promotes the North American comic book industry and attempts to bring new readers to their friendly neighborhood local independent comic book shop. 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’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…

There is a comedic understanding among Newfoundlanders, and one social media outlet has managed to pinpoint it exactly. Cape Shore Memes is a Facebook page that has hit the nail on the head when it comes to Newfoundland relatable humour. It’s like everything we mock, experience, love and hate all rolled up into small image clips to keep the day going. Put simply, sometimes Newfoundlanders face a lot of government crap (as I am sure everyone does), they are disappointed in the Leafs (as they should be), they are tired of the weather and the bs, but there will always remain a connection and unique language here. Those distinctive characteristics of this island can be used to bring humour which…

Good Doctor 2017 - LSPU Hall March 2017

Riveting Productions is like no other local theatre company. It remains focused on student based members, with over 80 per cent of members studying at Memorial with a varied focus of study. “When we started Riveting, we wanted to make sure that if people wanted to learn how to do stuff in theatre, there would be an outlet for them to learn and explore to see what they were interested in,” explained co-founder Stephanie Curran.
