Iron’s Perfect Picks Returns For The 2020/21 Football Season


Iron Bruce is a long-time resident of Barrie.  For decades now he has been a sports handicapping enthusiast.  His love of the gridiron and intrigue with the Vegas line has been one of his main focuses for years now.   Five years ago Iron decided to share his enthusiasm and expertise with his beloved “peeps” on a local podcast.  Four years of documented winners and against the number caught the attention of a few of Barrie’s media.  After a lot of thought Iron decided Barrie Uncovered were by far the best fit for him.

Known for his humorous takes and anecdotes combined with a rapier wit and uncanny ability to pick winners weekly on his BIG BOARD selections.

Iron is hard at work every week, scouring the form books and the Vegas odds to give his top picks every week. Iron is a must for listening for football fans looking for the inside scoop on all the Sunday games.  So Barrie football fans no matter your skill level and knowledge, can you really afford to miss a minute. Join Iron Bruce every Sunday at 11.00 am on the Barrie Uncovered Facebook page.  See if your team makes the BIG BOARD, find out how to play the double-digit favourites, join in the fun of the mailbag, and so much more!

Kat Chabot Live at Simmering Kettle & Dosti Eats!!

With phase 3 now in place, it allows us to have some fun and listen to music and have a meal with family and friends, all under the guidelines of the present day.

The Simmering Kettle and Dosti Eats in conjunction with Barrie Uncovered have arranged to put on a show for you. So if you are bored and looking for something to do, why not swing by and enjoy some great food and live music with Barrie’s own Kat Chabot? The event will be held at 531 Bryne Drive on Saturday, August 22, between 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This event will take place outside in between the two restaurants. So you have plenty of food to choose from!

Kat Chabot is a very popular local singer-songwriter from Barrie Ontario. Pre-pandemic days you could catch her performing all over Ontario’s Farmers Markets, local festivals, bars and restaurants, either performing solo or with Cardinal Street, a five-piece rock band. Spending her youth working in greenhouses, and growing up in a family band covering RUSH and Journey songs.

At Simmering Kettle, you will find comfort food at its finest. They have all-day breakfast options as well as other hearty meal options. Dosti eats is a mix of food from all over the world! They serve food from Mexico, pan Asian food, north American food, and some tasty dessert options and you can even have a cocktail.

Small Road Trip To The Sun (Flowers That Is)

Looking for a road trip of sorts, we are only talking about Innisfil? If you would like to see acres of Sunflowers and walk amongst them? Well, head to Edwards Farm at 1574 9 Line, Innisfil, ON L9S 3Z1. You need to go soon as the flowers only bloom for 2 to 3 weeks before they are used to produce their birdseed. So head there this weekend while you can.

Originally Edwards started growing sunflowers for their birdseed. But the rows and rows of sunflowers also known as the “Happy Flower” attracts people from all over Ontario. They come to wander through the paths cut into the fields and take in their beauty. In past years people have come from further to see these fields. Kathy who runs the shop told us a story that 5 tours busses turned up on one day last year. This year with COVID they have not been publicizing their fields to keep the crowds down. They are open though and encourage local people to come and wander through these impressive flowers. With a short flowering season for the flowers now is the time to go and see them.

While there you can shop in their Farm Store with all produce coming from their farm and local suppliers. They raise their own beef and chickens, they also sell pork and lamb supplied by local farmers. They sell free-range eggs, local honey and bakery, and much more. Their Farm Shop is open all year round.

An interesting product they sell is seeds for racing pigeons (of course picture not a pigeon) which we thought was a sport of the past. They also sell pet foods for rabbits, dogs, cats and horses.

So if you are looking for a short trip go and see the sunflowers and shop local, head to Edwards Farm you love the flowers and you can browse in their shop.
