Ice cream.

Also bacon. Bacon ON ice cream.

Oh, and Poutine. And wine…whisky. Firefly reruns. Wine. Anything written by Brett Ellison. Wine.  Preferably all at once!

And things that are FREE.

With all of that in mind, we present the Freebie: A weekly guide to events in Barrie that require zero money.

Open Mic /Jam Nights

Anyone who reads this space with any regularity knows that Barrie’s emerging music scene is killing it with open mic nights. Jam nights are vital to any music scene. Offering local musicians the chance to do their thang on stage in an encouraging environment is like offering free tuition to students.

This week why not check out a few of them? The Foxx and Flying Monkey’s run on Wednesday, while the Ranch and PLAY! opens the stage on Tuesday night.
