It is the solemn duty of every able bodied Barrie-ite to seek and locate fun and memorable things to do the moment Friday evening arrives. To that end, we present our weekly curation of the cool and unique, to ensure that when the Weekend calls, you don’t let it got to voicemail.
As we suggested last week, getting on to the lake and beaches before the summer begins it’s quick descent into fall, is strongly advised. And it’s easy to try your hand at some of the most unique aquatic adventures. Namely, paddling and SUP.
Permanently located on the far side of the boardwalk, Happy Paddling offers rentals for SUP, stand up surf boards and other boating options. It’s a great escape on the waves. Furthermore, they offer plenty of potential for fun. And for all age groups and experience levels.
Have we mentioned how F%^(ing awesome it is to have gigs again? Donaleigh’s, Flying Monkey’s, Malone’s Pint House, Taco Alley and the British Arms are all embracing the music scene with live performances.
Moreover, the Queen’s is welcoming talent from out of town on a weekly basis. Including Kenny of Kenny and Spenny fame (next week)
This Thursday though, the Queens plays host to Jimmy Stone Radio Show, Damnit Gold (Hamilton) Sweet and the Big Band and April (also from the Hammer). Tickets are $10/door.
