The Week That Was in Barrie November 23rd

We’ve been lucky to have staved off an early winter storm (for the most part so far this month. And even as the days gets shorter and the temps dip, there are fantastic pictures to be snapped as 2020 ebbs away. Like this gem from @chayadventures

Or this quintessential fall shot from the lakeshore…

We’ve all been saying it, religiously, since the beginning of the pandemic. Shop local. Buy local. And here’s a great opportunity to do both, and to keep social distancing!

Another great way to support local, is to support the local music scene. We had a chance to sit down with some of the guys from Mount Mural earlier this week, and got a sneak peak of their new tune, Sentient. Be sure to add them to your Spotify, and to check out our chat with them!

Look, nobody sane actually loves the months and months of cold weather…but it does make for some stunning imagery when the first snow fall lands.

And with the snow comes the holidays. And specifically, Holiday treats. Like these chocy delights from J’adore Fine Cheese, which rank 10 on the OMFG taste meter.

When you are heading out for holiday shopping, remember to keep it local as much as you can. And places like Stuff are great for keeping this year’s budget manageable!

Those early evening sunsets though…

Anybody out there want a drone for Xmas this year? Bet you will after seeing this footage!

And finally, although this year’s holidays will be a little less grandiose, Santa is coming to town a few times in select places. Bring the kids for some socially distant seasonal fun and support local!

Another victim of 2020’s shutdowns was the classic car shows we normally see along the lakeshore and around the region. But that hasn’t kept auto enthusiasts from showing off their rides around town!

Now that the construction along Dunlop is completed, we’re getting a great look at the new downtown strip. And the cool homegrown business that are coming back, including the new home for 5 Points Barbers.

This past week set records for warm temperatures in November, and all that sun made for some terrific photos. Like this beautiful shot from @redlinia of Centennial Park.

Hockey is coming back! (At least in some form) And with it comes practice…and anyone who’s been on the rink in a competitive capacity knows well the leg burn these drills bring…

The 8th annual Diwali bash went ahead this week. And if you’ve never experienced it, mark it on your calendars for next year!

We often use this space to talk up the amazing contributions of our local business community members, and this week we got another great example. Check out this terrific collaboration between the Baycats and the Kage to benefit, as they well say, The Love of the Game!

BAYCATS LAUNCH "FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME" FUNDRAISER By: Ryan Eakin / @ryaneakin13 BARRIE – The Barrie Baycats Baseball Club announced today that we are launching our new fundraising campaign called "For the Love of the Game” in partnership with @thekagebarrie, who have graciously accepted to host the equipment drive with a large bin at the front of their doors. "For the Love of the Game" is a fundraising campaign to gather used baseball equipment to bring to the Dominican Republic. Every year we are very fortunate to have multiple players from the Dominican Republic play on our team. We want to take this a step further and be able to provide our players with as much equipment as we can to take back home with them. Our players will know of communities, baseball organizations, and baseball players themselves who are in need of equipment. As we all know here in Canada, baseball equipment is easy to find, purchase, and upgrade whenever possible. However, sometimes in the Dominican Republic that is not the case. We need you — the best fans in the Intercounty Baseball League — to help to make this possible. Instead of simply throwing out or donating any used baseball equipment, we ask that you help us with our fundraiser by donating your items to us. Used baseball equipment we are asking for include… Helmets Baseballs Batting Gloves Bats Baseball Gloves Cleats Socks With the gathering of this equipment, there will be a cost of getting this to the Dominican Republic. As a result, if anyone is able and willing to donate to this cause there you can donate to our GoFundMe which can be accessed by clicking the link in our bio. Any amount would help us greatly. You can drop off all equipment at the Kage Batting Facility located on 112 Saunders Rd in Barrie. Their hours of operations are Noon to 9 pm from Mondays to Fridays, 10 am to 9 pm on Saturdays, and 10 am to 6 pm on Sundays. 👉 FOR FULL STORY AND QUOTES CLICK LINK IN BIO AND DIRECT TO BARRIE BAYCATS.COM 👈

And speaking of amazing and local, just check out the vibrant colours surrounding the Spirit Catcher…

Did you see this funny/not funny sign at the Collier street parkade? It was only there for a day but whoever put it up nailed it!

Have you been to Last Level Lounge since the lockdowns ended? You can book in for groups or hourly and hit up all their cool retro gaming. Pray you fare better than Han Solo did at Cloud City…

Speaking of the stars, have a look at this stunning starline capture.

Live music? Yes please! There are still plenty of gigs and shows across town, at some great venues, including the newest BBQ joint in town!

Of course we all enjoyed an extra day off work and school this past week, thanks to…Thanksgiving. It’s great to see so many Barrie-ites show their gratitude at this time of year, despite everything we’ve been through in 2020.

Speaking of gratitude, how about this fantastic initiative from @quesadabayfield supporting the local arts scene!

And how can you not be thankful for scenes like this along our cityscape…

Golfers who need a little upkeep on their swing as the colder weather sets in will be excited to hear this!

There are so many great interpretations you could apply to this cool pic. A great shot of Barrie’s downtown alleyways!
