ICYMI: The Week That Was Mar. 2nd

ALL THE NEWS THAT WAS FIT TO PRINT AT BARRIE UNCOVERED

 

The first week of March was a busy one for us at BU; including two podcasts!

First up we chatted with Highdives frontman and (reluctant) lead vocalist Scott Murray about his path to the guitar and mic.

Next up, Scott and Fraser returned with a solid dissection of the cornball disaster that was Good Burger for the latest Cinema Smackdown.

 

We also “celebrated” the annual arrival of Spring forward this weekend. With a look back…in time, with a feature on great retro spots in Barrie!

 

We also took a look back at one of our first Chef Spotlights, with Amanda Rider of Dunlop Diner!

 

And finally, we cast a look forward to the cool events and happenings still to come!
